Why is black a good color choice for a rubber mulch playground?

There are a few reasons why black is often chosen as the color for rubber mulch playgrounds. 

  • One reason is that black absorbs heat well, so it can help keep the playground area cooler in warm weather.
  • Another reason is that black rubber mulch is less likely to show dirt and other stains than lighter colors.
  • And finally, black rubber mulch can provide a nice contrast to brightly colored playground equipment.

Is Rubber Mulch Safe?

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Testing Company, and the State of Illinois, among numerous state and federal agencies, independent laboratories and licensed testing companies have conducted various tests designed to measure the shock-absorption of various surface materials as they relate to falling objects. Tire rubber chips have been shown to consistently absorb more shock impact than any other standard surface material. This is particularly important because more than 200,000 playground injuries end up in the emergency room every year. That is more than 500 visits per day. The majority of those injuries are attributed to falls. Therefore you can't afford to have anything less than the world's safest playground surface: Playsafer.

What colors are available? 

Painted Black, Unpainted Black, Dyed Black, Royal Blue, Forest Green, Cocoa Brown, Terra Cotta Red. Our Rubber Mulch will not fade in most environments for up to 12 years or more. We guarantee it.

What are the benefits of rubber mulch in playgrounds?

It is also important to know that Playsafer does not present any trip hazards like those found with wood mulch, rocks, or gravel.  This provides an elasticity advantage for rubber mulch over other playground surfaces.  In addition to promoting almost instantaneous drainage, Playsafer™ Rubber Mulch retains small amounts of moisture, which is just enough to prevent the accumulation of dust and slipperiness.

Where does the rubber mulch come from?

Rubber Mulch is made of 100% recycled tires.

Does rubber mulch smell?

Once opened, Rubber Mulch has an odor initially. However, within 48 hours, the smell will dissipate.
