US Rubber Mulch provides the #1 safest and longest lasting surfacing for playgrounds and landscaping, which saves money over all competing surfaces. It lasts for 25 years or more, with the same beneficial properties as the installation date, which is hardly true for any other type of surfacing, at a cost that's competitive with the least expensive options. By the time you pay for repeated replacement of other surfacing, you could have chosen our rubber mulch and save instead of spending so much money. All of this is before you get into why it performs so much better for whatever application you might have.
This website is intended to provide you easy and convenient access to true and accurate information, not just sales hype, so you may make the best educated decision about the most viable solution for your individual needs. Our intention is to encourage each person to explore whatever interests them about playground safety, landscaping, surface comparison, and of course, rubber mulch. We remain available to answer any questions or specific requirements you may have through our easy to use contact page form.
The journey through this website can be unique for each visitor as they wander throughout the extensive information we've provided, with perhaps more detail than anyone else might choose to. We've created quick and easy informative graphics using photos (we call them INFOto's), that open to full size by clicking on them, and the descriptive text below each INFOto is a link to a page with more information designed to make an impact (pun intended!). The green colored ovals with icons link to pages with much more detailed text information and access to lots of related INFOto and other icon links.
Rather than confuse you with a huge tiered menu system for the dozens of pages we've got for you, we've designed it much simpler with just five primary menu items, and links on those primary pages for additional pages with more details. The only sub-menu item we have is ordering nested under this Info page menu item. (If you prefer a full menu with all of the pages, please use our sitemap.)
We focused our intention on making this new website design graphic based, more engaging and providing access to smaller bits of valuable data, while providing access to in depth information useful in making a well informed decision. We feel 1,000 visitors could each have their own unique experience based on their individual interests. Please enjoy perusing what we've got up, as we continue to add more content, and drop us a message with any questions or suggestions you may have.
There are many more useful benefits for rubber mulch than playground fall safety surfacing, including landscaping mulch, equestrian arenas, dog runs & kennels, military training safety, and more. Throughout this website, we provide additional applications, benefits, techniques and installation tips.
Whether you're looking for a playground safety surfacing solution for a school, church, synagogue, mosque, public park, or residential back yard, we're here to help you make sure you make the best choice for your specific requirements.
If you've got anything from a basic question to something more involved and specific to your requirements, we remain available to address it, and you may access our easy to use contact page form to get things started. We also can do customer playground layouts for our customers, which include dimensions and other specifications for contractors or individuals to follow. Visit our playground or landscaping page for more info. Likewise goes for anything from dog runs, equestrian arenas, synthetic turf sports safety in-fill, to military training gauntlets, hand-to-hand combat training, tactical training safety surfaces and firing ranges.
Other rubber mulch websites make you guess how much you really need on your own, often resulting in paying too much for the wrong quantity of product, either purchasing too much or needing to buy more to provide the proper required depth. You're sort of dangling out there, trying to determine what to choose, how much, and what to do with it. We don't feel this is fair to customers, which is why we take personal interest in each and every one of our valuable customers, as if they were a close friend or family member. These other rubber mulch websites even admit they don't have anything close to our fall safety, which can be verified through drop tests performed with only a 6 inch depth and 17 foot fall height (the maximum fall height that can be tested). They may get close to our level of safety at only 10 to 12 foot fall heights, with HIC scores up to the allowable 1,000 HIC or 200 G's, which are NOT safe! As you get to lower elevations, the HIC scores reduce accordingly, well within acceptable HIC thresholds of 390, 570 and 700, where traumatic brain injury (TBI) and death are likely.
Our founder is considered by many to be the foremost authority on rubber mulch, he's a former Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) that's been nationally published and conducted seminars, so we can probably provide you better information than others might. We also can offer more detailed information specific to your requirements and address any questions or unique situations you may have.
Access to statistical data and other scientific or medical information, which we feel is useful to know, through our sister website created by this company's founder many years ago, "SafestPlayground.com." Located there are re-creations of local and nationally published articles, including, "Are Our Playgrounds (and Industry-Related Fall Safety Standards) Really Safe?" The reference documents within that story alone provided more than conclusive evidence to support the claims made on that website and this one, and this is based on the experience of this company's founder becoming an expert in playground safety and certified playground safety inspector (CPSI).
2023 Oct. 24 update: Still editing text content for the website, including webpage SEO optimization, outside links to reference material, plus the sitemap, and all content is live while we keep working. It's going to take a while for this many pages while we continue to beta-test and edit, welcoming any helpful feedback.
There is site navigation information available near the bottom of our info page, which describes the types of links to the 105 pages and documents available on USRubberMulch.com, all categorized and organized for easier reference on the sitemap.
