SPORT – OVERVIEW
The most popular safety rubber flooring system for outdoor gyms, multi-purpose sports and recreational areas are the Impact Protection Slabs. These sport pavement slabs have good sound deafening and ball rebound. They are non-slip and highly compacted in manufacturing which gives them their excellent abrasion resistance and outstanding ball rebound properties.
There are a variety of SBR rubber colours to choose from. see Colour chart
Rubber feels smooth and soft underfoot, it cushions the body’s joints and ligaments, while being incredibly durable. Sport Impact protection slabs can be supplied in SBR rubber see SBR & EPDM
Sports Pavement slabs are noise-absorbent with sound deadening properties of 23dB. It is recommended that Sport pavement or Impact protection slabs are installed with corner and edge profiles. See Corners and Edges
Slabs are simple to install, and can be done at home without professional assistance. They come with integrated connector pins which secure the slabs when installed in a t-joint configuration, thus protecting against accidental movement and theft. The rubber used in our impact protection slabs is completely traceable, right down to each individual slab, by using production codes. see Installation
The surface allows for easy line application and markings for all sport types.
Rubber has stain resistant properties, making it very easy to clean. see Care
SBR & EPDM BENEFITS
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomers (EPDM) is a high density synthetic rubber which is weather resistant and absorbs less solar heat. It is extremely versatile with the ability to better withstand temperatures associated with environmental factors such as UV weathering and water swell.
Styrene-butadiene Rubber (SBR) is produced from black rubber tyres that are stripped of their metal reinforcing and then mechanically shredded into granules. These rubber granules are graded and available in different sizes, that can be coloured and used as an economical and surfacing.
While EPDM offers a wider range of colours and is more weather resistant, SBR is a more economical surfacing option.
WET POUR and IMPACT PROTECTION SLABS offers a combination of SBR and EPDM options to give you the best of both rubber products.
WET POUR and IMPACT PROTECTION SLABS applications can accommodate an installation of SBR as the cushion/base layer and EPDM as the wear/top layer.
