Loose Fill Rubber Mulch

Loose Fill Rubber Mulch

Loose Fill Rubber Mulch or “Kiddie Nuggets” are made up of 100% recycled shredded rubber. It is ADA compliant and offers some of the best impact absorbing properties of all loose fill surfaces. With it’s great rating for fall heights, you only need approximately half the depth to equal the safety of other materials such as engineered mulch. Despite the higher initial investment, Kiddie Nuggets can be more economical than Engineered Wood Fiber since it does not decompose, requiring fewer top-offs. Children will stay cleaner and splinter free when jumping and falling on the surface because it will not create dust, decompose, rot or absorb water.

We understand there are many options when it comes to safety surfacing and deciding on the best surfacing solution for your project can be difficult. Our friendly team of Adventure Play Experts are happy to offer their expert advice and suggestions to find the surfacing solution that is right for you. We also carry a complete line of surfacing accessories including compatible drainage systems, geotextile fabric, wear mats, containment curbing, and accessible ramps. No matter the budget or application, Adventure Playground Systems offers a comprehensive selection of compliant surfacing that will make your playground safe and enjoyable for all.
