Playground and Children’s Flooring


Special children’s flooring created with a base layer of SBR rubber is ideal for playground flooring because it protects from falls, avoids slipping, allows very attractive designs, is easy to clean and maintain, and avoids water accumulation. Plus, if there are swings or elements that could provoke a fall of more than a metre, the EU has created regulations for its implementation.

The shock-absorbing qualities required by European regulations for playground flooring can be measured using HIC (Head Injury Criterion) tests: the HIC index is a criterion established for head injuries provoked by falling and it is a fundamental value for calculating the critical falling height for which an acceptable level of shock absorption is provided.


As a result of all this, it is increasingly common to see playgrounds with special children’s flooring made with a base layer of SBR rubber and EPDM granules. The main characteristic of this type of children’s flooring is that it is one grain size bigger than that used in sports flooring.

Plus, adding shock-absorbent continuous flooring in children’s playgrounds offers an entertaining aspect for the children due to the possibility of creating different designs, combining the lively colours characteristic of the EPDM material to display very attractive pictures for the younger ones.
