Play Matta™ Scuff Pads

Play Matta™ Scuff Pads integrate seamlessly with surrounding loose fill surfacing and provide years of compliant, low maintenance performance in high use areas, such as under swings and slides on the playground.

Play Matta™ Scuff Pads - protecting high use areas year round.

Woodchip and sand surfacing solutions can be satisfactory at installation, but require consistent attention, particularly in high use areas.

Play Matta™ Scuff Pads are the perfect solution for:



Matta™ is the preferred supplier to a number of leading school districts and schools across Australasia, North America and the UK. Compliant impact protection, low maintenance and free draining for all season play - keeping kids on playgrounds and dirt and grime out of classrooms.
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.
Nature Play

Nature Play

Play Matta™ is the perfect solution where ground water protection, grass retention and/or integration with natural play elements and other loose fill surfaces is required.


Yes, Play Matta Scuff Pads can be as small as 1 m2 to accommodate equipment entry/exit points, right through to full equipment footprint coverage.

Unlike surrounding loose fill products (such as woodchip or sand surfacing), Play Matta™ Original Scuff Pads are virtually maintenance free, and Play Matta™ Excel Scuff pads require an occasional 'shake out' to ensure the tiles remain above the existing loose fill.

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. See, for example, our Rocket Park NZ case study.
