Soft Surface

100% recycled rubber mulch; combined with a binder ; mixed on site and levelled out to  provide a more attractive natural looking and cheaper option to traditional granulate wet pour. This hand finished surface is ideal for schools, playgrounds or even under children’s play equipment at home.


With a choice of colour (or colour combination) Tygar “Soft Surface” Surfacing can be laid directly onto most existing substrates, with no need for a formal sub-base. Thus creating a more cost effective, aesthetically pleasing and safe soft surface for a variety of applications.


With a choice of naturally coloured aggregate, you can create a dramatic effect with one colour, or mix and match to your heart’s desire.


Children’s safety is paramount. Tygar “Soft surface” Surfacing has been tested to be fully compliant with BS:1177 safety standard and is certified to have a Critical Fall Height (CFH) of up to 3.2m when 40mm depth is laid on grass.


The criss-cross matrix of the shredded rubber that makes up the surface means that “Soft Surface” is not too smooth, resulting in excellent non-slip properties in both dry and wet conditions.


In brief, the benefits and features of Tygar “Soft Surface” Surfacing include:

  • Rapid Installation – Same day curing, therefore minimal disruption to the client
