Waste plastic for top layer safety tiles are sourced from healthcare, construction and transport industries amongst others. Rubber buffings for the underlying shock pads are sourced from truck tire re-treading operations.
Washing & testing
Recycled plastic and rubber is washed and graded to ensure only quality materials are used for processing.
Compounding & blending
Virgin plastic is compounded, and recycled plastic and pigments are blended, along with other additives to ensure product quality. Graded rubber buffings are mixed with binder and prepared for 'baking'.
Moulding & quality testing
Compounded and blended plastics are injection molded to form top layer tiles, and rubber buffings are 'baked' in a purpose built oven to form shock pads. Batches are tested for fall height attenuation and quality assurance.
