Rubber Products

Frequently Asked Questions

How are the products fixed in place?

Products such as playground pavers / gym matts or wheelchair ramps do not need to be glued down or stapled to the existing flooring because they are heavy enough to stay in place. They are simply placed side by side in the chosen area and trimmed to fit the space if needed. However, if fastening down is required due to a high level of traffic, personal choice, or compliance reasons, we recommend using an industrial adhesive such as Sikaflex or we have installation services available for your convenience.

Do they slide around?

Our products will not slide around as they weigh a substantial amount. For example, the standard gym pavers 15mm high x 1000mm x 1000mm weigh 13kg each so will not move around due to everyday use such as children running and jumping. However, if fastening down is required due to a high level of traffic, personal choice, or compliance reasons, we recommend using an industrial adhesive such as Sikaflex or we have installation services available for your convenience.

Can you use the products outside?

All Safe Surface products are weather resistant and will remain relatively unchanged in a wide range of environments and weather conditions. However, due to the manufacturing process of binding rubber granules together, our products are still porous and may allow water to seep through over time.

Are they non-slip?

Our products are designed for frequent daily use by foot and vehicle traffic and are non-slip.

Do your products adhere to Australian Standards?

Yes. Our wheelchair ramps are manufactured to Australian Standards 1428. 1-2009. Builders can be assured that the ramps have the correct incline to ensure safety and ease of use. Our access ramps are used widely in aged-care facilities, accessible buildings and private homes.

How long do your products last?

Rubber sourced from recycled tyres is very durable so everything we retail is long lasting. With reasonable and sensible care, our products should last forever! Rubber doesn’t break down.

Are they colourfast?

Our rubber products are weather resistant but, like most outdoor items, will fade over time. It depends on whether the product is in direct sunlight and the amount of exposure it receives.

Can you provide brightly coloured matting for play areas?

Yes. Our standard playground matting or pavers are black. However, if you require customise colours and/or add speckles for areas such as play spaces we can provide those custom requests for you as well.

Do these products require a professional for installation?

No. Our rubber goods can be installed by a homeowner or handyman. However, if fastening down is required due to a high level of traffic, personal choice, or compliance reasons, we recommend using an industrial adhesive such as Sikaflex or we have installation services available for your convenience.
