Rubber Flooring unveils a remarkable playground floor with interlocking tiles, certified by IPEMA. This novel rubber tile is called the Recoil Playground Tile and is presented in various thicknesses and colors. The product is being imported from the west coast and is considered as one of the simplified and protected playground surfaces introduced so far.

Operations Manager, Justin Hoverson says that the rubber playground tiles are available since many years, and necessitated different installation options like rubber connecting pieces, adhesive, and dowels. Installation can be simplified by reducing the need for additional accessory items, which also makes the process economical. After inspecting the project and organizing the design process, this new playground floor is ready to be introduced and titled as ‘the Recoil Playground Tile.’
The new Recoil Tile can be obtained through a 100% recycled rubber tile and a virgin rubber top layer based designer series tile. It is available in thicknesses 2.5” for a 6 ft fall height rating and 3.5” thick for an 8 ft IPEMA certified fall height rating.
According to Kurt Leitinger, introducing this product in this winter season is not the right idea as people hardly install new playground surfaces in this season. The company, which intended to launch this product by March 2012, now introduces well in advance of the targeted time, anticipating the product to be the significant playground surface for 2012. In between, the tile for indoor users such as daycare for kids and rock climbing wall facilities, can also be produced.
