List of Playground Surface options such as Poured, Loose, or Interlocking Rubber

Playground Safety Surfacing


Selecting, installing and maintaining appropriate playground surfacing are key characteristics in reducing playground injuries. Most daycare and playground injuries are related to falls to the surface. It is therefore important to take quality, maintenance, and cost into account before selecting safety surfacing.

Miller & Associates offers shock absorbing safety surfacing in the form of synthetic grass, loose fill rubber mulch, interlocking rubber tiles, poured-in-place rubber, and engineered wood.

Playground surfacing can also assist with accessibility and help promote inclusive play areas. Poured in place rubber and interlocking rubber tiles eliminate uneven surfaces that might otherwise impede access.

In addition to safety and accessibility, playground surfacing can enhance the visual aspects of your outdoor play space. Consider colors and designs that will complement your theme and branding.

All playground surfacing materials should be compatible with the ASTM F1292 standard. Learn more about proper surfacing under and around playground equipment, review the ASTM guidelines and guidelines provided by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. You'll find information about safety awareness, checklists, equipment hazard notifications, guides and handbooks, and other resources.
