Water Play

Water Play

Play Matta™ provides a range of solutions for outdoor and indoor water play spaces requiring chemical and UV resistivity, high drainage and play-appropriate traction underfoot.


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.

Play Matta™ Original 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.

Play Matta™ Original can be installed on either compacted base, or existing concrete / asphalt. While Play Matta™ Original can be self installed, installation by a Certified Installer is required for product and installation warranty accreditation.
