Our 1.5m x 1.0m playground safety matting is perfect for use in your playground. These ring-hole mats will allow the grass to grow back through the mat giving maximum protection to the children whilst keeping the lawn looking fresh and green! Not only are they brilliant when they’re installed, actually installing them is as simple as it can be! All you need is a few of our pegs and cable ties. Just lay the mat down, fix into the ground with the pegs and fasten the next mat using our cable ties. It couldn’t be easier to install our playground mats!


Playground mats are a recycled rubber safety surface used around the UK by councils, schools, stable owners and general domestic users. They protect the ground from becoming churned up which can create a boggy and muddy mess. Playground Mats are commonly used in children’s play areas but also to protect your lawns, garden play areas and for equestrian access as these places tend to be prone to becoming boggy due continual use from pets, horses and children.


We will provide 4 plastic pegs and 10 cable ties per mat if you select the pegs and ties option. Larger packs are available to buy under the accessories subheading.


Grass Mats in Playgrounds


Grass/Playground Mats are a commonly used safety surfacing across the UK due to their flexibility for use in all locations and climates. The mats are easy to install and are often a cheaper solution to more expensive wet pour type installations.


However, one thing clear to us is that the testing of these mats is something not commonly understood in the industry. Our playground mats are manufactured in accordance with BS EN 1177:2008, which means they significantly reduce the risk of injury.


3 metre Critical Fall Heights (CFH) are often quoted but are also often misunderstood by customers.


So, what does a CFH of 3m actually mean?


When tested in accordance with British Standard EN 1177:2008, a test height of 3 metres provides a HIC (Head Injury Criterion) value. The British Standard states that the HIC value must not exceed 1000, a number whereby it is deemed unlikely that fatal or disabling injuries will occur.


Playground Safety Mats • some interesting Facts

    • Our mats have been tested from a distance of 3 metres onto a grass sub-base and received an HIC value of less than 1,000 in all 9 sample drops. The British Standard states that HIC values must not exceed 1000.
    • The CFH was tested in accordance with BSEN 1177:2008 by an independent sports laboratory.
    • The mats also scored strongly under tests for slip resistance (EN 13036-4: 2011) and fire safety testing (hot nut testing: EN4790: 1987) – testing certification can be viewed in the downloads section of this product page.
    • The mat size is 1500mm x 1000mm x 22mm thick (including the underside bobble). Covering an area of 1.5m2.
    • The mats are made out of high quality recycled rubber.
    • Easy to install.

16mm vs 22mm Grass Mats

The difference between 22mm and 16mm rubber grass mats lies in their thickness. The 22mm mats are thicker and more durable, making them ideal for heavy foot traffic areas such as playgrounds or outdoor sports facilities. They offer more cushioning, which helps reduce the impact of falls and provide greater protection to the ground underneath. On the other hand, 16mm mats are thinner and more lightweight, making them easier to handle and install. They are often used in lighter traffic areas, such as residential lawns or parks. The thinner design also makes them more cost-effective. Both types of mats provide an effective solution for protecting grassed areas and reducing maintenance costs, but the choice between them will depend on the specific needs and requirements of the location in which they are being used.

Some customer reviews...

"We just bought some rubber mats from this retailer. The mats are really good quality and the service was excellent. Really reasonable and quick delivery. Previously we bought similar mats from other retailers and can honestly say these grass mats are much better quality."

Love the mats, they are exactly what I wanted to put on the lawn where the dog frequently runs. Ordered one day, delivered the next. Amazing service.
