When it comes to our kids, safety is always a priority. Be it on the road, at home, in school, or practically anywhere they go, it’s important for us to know that nothing or nobody will harm them.
Parks and playgrounds are just some of the places where several factors need to be thoroughly inspected to ensure our children’s safety (and our peace of mind). Aside from meeting safety zones, doing away with all protrusion and head entrapment hazards, meeting age-appropriate equipment, and other requirements - there is the matter of having the proper protective surface installed.
These days, more and more parents and guardians are turning towards rubber products as their play surface of choice. Chief among them are rubber mulch and interlocking rubber playground tiles. But which one is really the safer choice? Below are the pros and cons of both rubber materials as playground surfacing to help you decide.
