Not every playground requires a completely new poured in place rubber surface to be installed.
Often a playground can be completely revitalized, by just adding a new color cap or wear layer to the surface. When installing this application, we will first completely clean and remove any debris or loose pieces of the old poured in place surfacing. Our staff will then just completely recap the system giving a brand new look. This technique will actually improve the playground’s safety rating. It is also a budget saver as the recap can provide the same brilliant color at less than half the price of a new poured in place surface.
Existing playground surfaces need some basic maintenance and upkeep. Although poured in place surfacing is very low maintenance, some simple upkeep is sometimes needed. We typically see some wear occur in high traffic areas. These areas are usually found under swings, at the base of slides, and around any merry-go-rounds or spinning equipment. Small repairs are sometimes needed in these locations. The process for the basic maintenance and repair of these poured in place surfaces is simple. Our staff will remove the existing cap on the rubber surface. Then, we’ll mix the closest color match possible and patch in the new poured in place area. After a simple repair, the playground surface is as good as new!
