Playground & Track


Overview

Ultimate RB manufactures a full line of playground safety surfacing materials for fall heights up to 10 feet.

This product line includes IPEMA certified tiles as well as materials for poured-in-place playgrounds and running tracks.

Bounce Back Tiles


    Ultimate Applications:

  • Playground

    • Full playground coverage
    • Swing and slide areas
    • High impact areas


Bounce Back Playground Tiles

No other playground surfacing material offers the degree of safety assurance that rubber tiles can provide.

Each year over 200,000 children are injured on playgrounds in the United States. Many of these injuries result from children falling onto inadequate surfacing. Ultimate RB Bounce Back Playground Tiles offer a solution to this problem in a durable and attractive rubber tile product.

Bounce Back Tiles are designed to meet federally mandated Critical Fall Height requirements for playground equipment up to 10 feet tall. Our tiles have been certified to comply with these requirements by IPEMA through TUV/SUD, a third party independent testing/certification laboratory. Additionally, Ultimate RB conducts regular, in house Critical Fall Height testing on our own certified test equipment as part of our Quality Control plan.

Wood and rubber mulch products are easily displaced, resulting in inadequate thickness/protection in large areas of the playground. They also present an undesirable and dangerous opportunity for children to swallow, throw or kick the material. Poured-in-Place products can only be installed in specific weather conditions which limits the window for installation. Ultimate RB’s factory-produced tiles eliminate these problems and offer the assurance of safe surfacing for children’s play areas.

Swing & Slide Mats


    Ultimate Applications:

  • Playground

    • Full playground coverage
    • Swing and slide areas
    • High impact areas

Swing and Slide Mats

For use on playgrounds with erodible surfaces such as grass or wood/rubber mulch, Ultimate RB produces Swing and Slide mats.

When placed under a swing or at the base of a slide, these durable 36″ x 36″ x 4″ mats prevent the “trenching” caused by the impact and abrasion that naturally occur in these areas. Available in 5 attractive colors and requiring no installation — simply lay them in place — Swing and Slide mats are an economical solution to a common playground maintenance problem.

Poured In Place


    Ultimate Applications:

  • Playground

    • Full playground coverage
    • Swing and slide areas
    • High impact areas


 

Colors Available:

Poured In Place

EPDM rubber granules serve as the durable and visually appealing top layer on poured in place playground surfaces, and Ultimate RB is the only vertically integrated supplier of this material in the United States.  With all aspects of formulation and manufacturing conducted in-house in our ISO 9001 registered facility, we can offer product quality and consistency that no competitor can match.

All of our EPDM formulations are peroxide cured to ensure better cross-link density, weathering characteristics and physical properties.  The peroxide cure system also eliminates problems of compatibility with some urethane binders that can be encountered with sulfur cure systems.

While most poured in place playground surfaces are made from a handful of standard colors, Ultimate RB has a multitude of colors available for use in this application.  We can also develop custom colors per your specification.

In addition to EPDM granules Ultimate RB can provide one stop shopping for many poured in place playground surfaces through a program jointly offered with our affiliate Marchem Corporation.  EPDM granules and urethane binder products can be shipped together on one truck from several locations across the country to ensure timely delivery and reduced shipping costs.  We also have recycled SBR in strand form available for sale from our facility in Ohio.
