FlexGround™ Standard Specifications Downloads:
FlexGround is a dual-durometer rubber safety surface that is poured in-place and hand-troweled over concrete, asphalt or compacted ABC and is ADA and ASTM 1292 compliant. The bottom “FlexCushion” layer is made from recycled shredded tires, mixed with urethane in a mortar mixer and then hand troweled into place. After a 24hr dry time, the top layer or Wear Course is installed. The Wear Course consists of peroxide cured virgin EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) rubber that is mixed with urethane in a mortar mixer and then hand troweled at a ½” thickness over the existing cushion layer and left to dry for 24-48 hrs.

Color and Urethane: FlexGround Standard is offered in a wide array of colors, including blue, green, red and beige. Colors may be mixed or designed side-by-side. More intricate design work, involving numerous colors and patterns, is also available. FlexGround Standard is applied using aromatic urethane, however, a higher quality aliphatic urethane is also available (see the “Aliphatic Advantage”).
Highest Quality Industry Standard:
FlexGround Standard is our traditional, poured -in-place rubber safety surfacing. It is a two-layer system consisting of a cushioned base, composed of high quality, recycled tire buffings, and a top surface made of 1/2” urethane-adhered EPDM rubber granules. Each granule is 1-3mm in size. FlexGround Standard is durable, suitable for all age play areas and can be installed indoors or outdoors. FlexGround Standard materials are mixed and applied on-site, so that the thickness can be modified to meet varying critical fall heights. FlexGround Standard is IPEMA certified for up to an eight foot critical fall height, and comes with a five year limited warranty.
Accessibility: FlexGround Standard is a poured-in-place, stationary surface, allowing wheelchairs unhindered access and maneuverability. Heavily used areas under swings and slides are designed to maintain thickness and attenuation.
