Genan offers rubber granulate and pellets for shock-absorbing safety surfacing solutions for playgrounds and trails. The concept of these solutions are different combinations of top layer and base layer for a more safe and secure outdoor area.
Genan granules – or GENAN SAFE rubber pellets – are used for playground base layers to ensure a safe environment for active and adventurous children. Children playing will inevitably fall and get hurt sometimes. With shock-absorbing rubber surfacing, playgrounds are softer, and children will injure themselves much less than on playgrounds with more traditional surfaces.
Compared to sand, gravel or wooden chips, a playground surface made from rubber granulate or pellets is much easier to keep clean, and problems with e.g. hidden, left-behind needles, broken glass and faeces from cats and dogs can thus be avoided.
This solution has achieved a 6-10 ft critical fall height certification.
GENAN COATED TOP LAYER is available in the following colors: CARIBBEAN BLUE, CRIMSON RED, EARTH BROWN, NATURE GREEN, OCEAN BLUE and VIOLET.
CONSTRUCTION When constructing the safety system top layer of the GENAN SAFE –PLAY solution, the ½ inch top layer can be constructed with either: – a 100% GENAN COATED TOP LAYER, or – a 50/50 mix of GENAN COATED TOP LAYER and GENAN COARSE Alternative top layer solutions made from either: – 100% TPV/EPDM/TPE, or – a 50/50 mix of TPV/EPDM and GENAN COARSE are also possible. If either TPV, TPE or EPDM is used, it is crucial that installers follow the instructions and recommendations of the supplier of these products in relation to material thickness and fall heights – and ensure compliance with applicable standards.
