Play Matta™ Re-Cover is a unique, cost-effective playground resurfacing programme that quickly transforms cracked, crumbling, shrinking and worn-out poured-in-place (and save it from landfill).

Worn out playground safety surface

Play Matta™ Re-Cover - cost effective & sustainable

Loss of safety compliance is a major concern with poured-in-place playgrounds as the surfacing wears, shrinks and disintegrates. Expensive patching and repairs are usually only a temporary fix.

By re-covering your tired poured-in-place (PiP) surfacing with Play Matta™ Re-Cover you will be guaranteed long lasting quality and performance for years to come. You'll also be saving PiP from landfill - repurposing waste is what we do.

Play Matta™ Re-Cover tile is the perfect solution for:

Public Playgrounds

Public Playgrounds

Keeping playgrounds open is our business. The preferred choice of landscape architects, maintenances personnel and kids alike. Play Matta™ is designed to keep public playgrounds compliant, open and free of repetitive and costly maintenance issues.
Early Childhood

Early Childhood

Light on the environment, and light underfoot. Play Matta™ products are used throughout Early Childhood facilities looking to empower safe, child initiated play.


The existing PiP surface is typically "skimmed" to ensure an even and compliant surface. Following this, Play Matta™ Original tiles are installed directly on top, welded together and the perimeter pinned. This process utilises and preserves the fall height properties of the underlying PiP, while giving the top surface a brand new look and feel.

Play Matta™ Re-Cover is very low maintenance. Regular cleaning will prevent the build-up of dirt and grime ensuring the surfacing performs and looks at its very best.

A well-installed and maintained Play Matta™ playground (this requires a Play Matta Certified Installer), will last up to 10+ years. We have lifted and relayed, or repurposed product over 15 years old.
