Our rubber playground tiles were chosen for the purposes of durability and maintenance, and because they offer more opportunities for nuanced color blending, as compared to traditional volcanized or PIP rubber systems.
The design team initially explored using a safety surfacing material in bolder colors, but ultimately chose a palette of colors that you see here after examining an on-site mock-up that we provided, which echoes the calibrated color and distribution scheme of the playground equipment itself.
Color and texture in these TPV Top Tiles come from the raw materials used and blending techniques we offer, which can be achieved in many different ways. Variation (between tile and transitional ramp) is created through our online blending station to generate the focused pattern that you see here. Once those components were created and their relationships established, the team could experiment with a variety of layouts.
