Product Info:

Mechanical Fastening device to install playground tiles

The patented "Bolt-down" mechanism is strategically designed to go through Unity’s patented male portion of the interlocks joints, providing unmatched performance that cuts and threads into concrete (cement), brick, asphalt (blacktop) or any standard sub-flooring materials, providing excellent holding values.

With billions of these anchor bolts in use across the globe, it is the professional’s choice for quality, strength and ease of installation. The corrosion resistant coating makes our bolt-down system a long-lasting solution capable of withstanding the harshest conditions, and is “Building Code Approved” for use indoors and out. The one-piece design of the anchor-bolts requires no assembly for quick and easy installations, so you can move on to next tile being installed.


  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Blue Climaseal® coating is uniquely applied in multiple stages through dip-spin technology for extra corrosion resistance.
  • Advanced Threadform Technology™ intertwines a large “chiseled” main thread with a small diameter thread to reduce head snapping and provide:
  • 30% lower installation torque
  • 20% more holding power
  • Finished head gives a low, uniform profile and aesthetic appeal.
  • Close-to-edge placement. No expansion or outward pressure allows installation near a concrete’s edge without cracking.
  • Easily reversible and removable. No inserts required.
  • Recommended for use Unity’s (ground level) rubberized safety surfacing, flooring and paver products, indoors and out.

Interlocking playground tiles that can be bolted down to resist vandalism.

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT FOR ROOFTOP APPLICATIONS WHAT-SO-EVER. It is only meant or ground-level installations over a solid sub-base.

Unity’s patented “Bolt-down” system is found within the male portion of our interlocking joints to provide added strength, security and peace of mind when fighting vandalism issues that plague many inner-city applications. It is counter-sunk, and independently laboratory tested, to avoid any “hard-spots” within the product itself.

UNITY'S full-size tile description showing the twelve (12) locations for the bolts.

Up to twelve bolts can be used across various portions of the male interlocking joints to ensure that issues such as vandalism and/or severe weather, will not be tolerated by our anchored-down products. Such field testing was applied during several hurricanes that blasted through the states, where 6 feet of salt water and debris had buried our rubber tiles/mats/blocks on playground projects up and down the east coast for several days only to come up unscathed with no issues of up-lift, separation, curling and/or peeling what so ever. Said projects are below:

Playground surfacing project that survived Hurricane Sandy and 6 ft of water for days.
Playground Tiles on the beach that is susceptible to flooding
Playground Project that was bolted down to resist vandalism in this inner-city.

This product has also been tested in a salty spray environment for 720 hours with less than 10% red rust, per ASTM B117. The anchor-bolts have been tested in rigorous conditions to meet the Miami-Dade County standards (#07-0315.03, ICC-ES Evaluation Report ESR-1671, Florida's Building Code FL7556), giving you the highest level of protection and strength to withstand harsh weather (and vandalism) conditions. 

Compatible Drill Bits:

  • Easily find the right drill bit to install anchors by using the color-coded system labeled on all product packaging.
  • A 3/16” diameter requires a 5/32” light-duty drill bit, while a 1/4” diameter requires a 3/16” medium-duty drill bit.

Drilling, Sliding and Driving Info:

Drill a hole at least 1/4” deeper than the anchor embedment using a hammer drill and the appropriate drill bit size. Make sure you drill through rubber tile first as your starting point, in order for the drilling of the solid sub-base to line up accordingly.

Slide the Condrive® Installation tool over the drill bit and snap in the drill adapter and snap into the chuck. Then place the hex or Phillips bit into the appropriate Condrive tool end. Position a 3/16” or 1/4” diameter anchor-bolt onto the end of the sleeve.

Drive the anchor-bolt into the pre-drilled pilot hole until it is fully seated. The torque-adjusted driver prevents over-torqueing of the anchor head by automatically disengaging when it comes into contact with the fixture surface.
