compliant "loose-fill" playground safety surface. Recycled rubber playgrounds are changing the way
people think about playground surfaces. Playgrounds for
parks and schools are typically surfaced with sand or
soft particles such as wood mulch. PermaLife™ now offers a
better product for commercial use, PermaLife Pour&Play, the safest, most economical rubber
play surface on the market and it Comes with a 5 Year Replacement Warranty!
is used by municipalities, schools and park systems throughout
North America because it offers children that extra margin of safety
and a greater peace of mind to school and other officials
entrusted with the safety of our kids.
Products Safety Commission provides extensive
analysis of playground injuries, and their causes. They found
that more than 200,000 children go to US hospital emergency
rooms with injuries associated with playground activities.

We have found a
ground-breaking way of protecting our kids from these types of
playground accidents. PermaLife Pour&Play™, an
environmentally-friendly playground safety surface, protects
children from playground bumps and bruises and more serious
injury, by cushioning their falls.
PermaLife Pour&Play™ is a colorful
clean alternative to traditional playground surfaces, with
remarkably good drainage characteristics. It acts like sand but
is much softer on little knees and unlike wood mulch, it lasts
much longer and holds its vibrant color. PermaLife Pour&Play will not cause
splinters, attract insects or animals and it will not stain children's
PermaLife Pour&Play™ is
made from recycled tires, but because of our cryogenic manufacturing
process, PermaLife Pour&Play™ is superior to other tire-derived
playground surfacing products on the market.
Tires are converted into
recycled rubber in several different ways. Virtually all other producers
manufacture their playground surfacing material from a process
of abrasion (ambient process): Tires are first shredded and
granulated, and then put through a process using magnets to
remove the metal wire which is placed in tires during their
original manufacture. The process of many other
manufacturers may eliminate as much
as 99% of the exposed wire, but not all of it, setting a
standard which is insufficient to protect our most precious
resource, our children. PermaLife's proprietary systems go
the extra step to insure the safety of your children.
The PermaLife™ cryogenic (freezing) process removes 100% of the exposed
metal which is found in other recycled rubber marketed for this
PermaLife Pour&Play™ is the
only brand that includes an additional manufacturing step to
give you that extra margin of safety for your playground or play
After cutting a tire into
small shreds, the material goes through a cryogenic (freezing)
process, which reduces the temperature of the shreds to minus
300 degrees Fahrenheit.
In this state of
deep-freeze, the shreds, which become as brittle as glass, are then processed through a hammer mill
which shatters them into small pieces. Because each of the three
components of tires (rubber, metal wire, and thread) shatters at
a different temperature, this process cleanly separates the
We then separate the
resulting material using screens, magnets and vacuum systems,
thereby isolating a ¼ - ½ inch rubber pellet that is 100% free
of exposed metal wire.
Finally, the product is then coated in one
of six vibrant colors
with a unique polyurethane-based coating, which is non-toxic,
color-fast and abrasion-resistant. The product is then packaged
and delivered to schools, community playgrounds and residential
back-yards, so children can remain safe while at play.
