Loose Fill Installation Project at a School

Before and after pictures of the Reception Class play area at St. Thomas's RC Primary School, Tean, Staffordshire.

Our team removed the exhausted bark and replaced with our wonderful blue Rubber Chippings.

The area also originally consisted of sleepers which were dangerously set in exposed concrete.

Our solution to this problem was to apply our 'Bonded Rubber' surface to completely cover the concrete, ensuring the steps are now very safe for the children to walk down.

The School had significant access restrictions, so we were able to arrange the unloading of the bulk bags of Rubber Chippings utilising a ‘Moffett Mobile Forklift Truck’.

This allowed us to unload the bags on the road and transport them over the School playing field and place them adjacent to the Reception Class play area.

The entrance was quite steep, uneven and didn’t lend itself to the regular unloading method.

The Team carefully ‘Resin Bonded’ the Blue Rubber Chippings over the exposed concrete, ensuring the chippings can’t move!

The Blue was chosen to fall in line with the School colours.

We decided to cover the tired decking area with our AG26 Artificial Grass as it had become very slippery and looked ready for a facelift!

The team really worked so hard to provide the look the School required, double checking every procedure with the Teachers through every step of the installation.
