Rubber Playground Chippings
Rubber Playground Chippings
Our Rubber Bark Chippings are now 100% manufactured from recycled tyres. Similarly the chippings consist of a very uniform particles ensuring ultimate safety along with a wonderful, high quality appearance.
Prior to these wonderful days of rubber recycling, the tyres literally were sent to landfill. The processes used to produce this product are state of the art and include advanced magnet systems to remove metal objects. Please be aware you may find the occasional foreign object which has slipped through the process.These may consist of wire or tyre valves which can easily be hand picked and disposed of when laying the surface. With this in mind and as with all playbark materials we advise that children do not play on the surfacing without shoes. We are proud to state the product is at least 99% wire free.
With most applications our Rubber Chippings only need to be applied at a depth of 50mm resulting in only half the amount required compared to other play surfacings.
The 500kg bag will cover 25 sq metres at a depth of 50mm (2'').
75kgs will cover 3.75 sq metres at a depth of 50mm (2").
150kgs will cover 7.5 sq metres at a depth of 50mm (2").

This product is also a popular choice for shop window displays and similar areas where a luxurious, long lasting apprearance is desired.
See a step-by-step installation at a school in Kent.
Loose fill materials may displace during use, we always suggest that when an impact absorbing surface is desired, the depth is increased according to the degree or maintenance and level of activity. (As with all loose impact absorbing products, raking is recommended to maintain the desired thickness).
We believe there is no formal requirement or standard for an impact absorbing surface to be used in a residential situation and you should carry out your own risk assessment as appropriate to your individual circumstances.
NB Commercial or public areas are covered by more detailed requirements BS EN1176 relating to loose fill impact absorbing products, requiring greater depths of all loose fill products in a public environment. In accordance with BS EN 1177 (2008) an additional 100mm of material should be included to allow for displacement in use.

From a Happy Customer:
I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the rubber chippings we ordered from you. We have used them to create a play area for our daughter and it looks fantastic. We also used the rubber edging and were very pleased at how simple and easy it was to install.

Please note that the goods are unloaded from the rear of the vehicle.
Please note that goods are not delivered with a crane/hiab facility and can therefore not be lowered over a fence or similar. We can also not deliver to the rear of properties due to access restrictions.
The driver positions the pallet truck. The driver uses a 'pump' pallet truck to lift the pallet so that he can wheel the pallet onto the tail lift.
The pallet load is lowered to the ground. The tail lift is lowered electrictronically by the driver. He carefully lowers the load to the ground so that it can be wheeled across the pavement.
The driver only has a legal obligation to offload the goods onto the roadside and in turn the liability and responsibility of the goods then passes to the customer.
However, at playbark.com we contract with reputable and obliging transport Companies whose drivers will endeavour to place the pallet into your driveway as long as the surface is of sound makeup such as concrete, paving or tarmac.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE PALLET TRUCK CANNOT PASS OVER GRAVEL OR ANY TYPE OF ROUGH TERRAIN AND SIMILARLY THE DRIVER CANNOT BE EXPECTED TO PULL THE GOODS UP OR DOWN A SLOPING DRIVEWAY OR OVER CURBS.
Failure to accept this responsibility will result in the goods being returned to the transport depot and charges will apply.

The safe passage of the Carrier's delivery vehicle is the ultimate responsibility of the delivery driver. With this in mind if the driver assesses any delivery point road or carriageway and concludes it is unsafe or unviable to access the delivery property in question, this decision of the driver is final. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the Customer and any potential purchaser to notify ourselves of any potential situation which may lead to the delivery being undelivered. Examples may include (but not exhaustive) cars parked preventing vehicle access, low growing tree branches, telephone/ electricity cables etc. Failure to accept this responsibility will result in the goods being returned to the transport depot and charges will apply.

We endeavour to adhere to this specified day to the best of our ability, but as you will appreciate the National Carriers we contract with do have a mammoth task tackling road works, congestion and tachograph regulations.
