Poured-In-Place

June 14, 2019

On Firday, June 14, 2019 the Kenadi Jean Weis Foundation will be on site at Kenadi’s Playground at Jorgensen Park overseeing the installation of the poured-in-place rubber surfacing.

The poured-in-place rubber surfacing is made of clean recycled rubber and a decorative top layer made of virgin rubber EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) or TPV (Thermoplastic vulcanizates) granules held together by polyurethane binding agents.

The sub-base onto which the PIP surfacing is poured is at least four inches thick and has a gradual slope to promote drainage.  The two layers of rubber are mixed and poured on-site in two layers: an impact-absorbing layer topped beneath the decorative TPV or EPDM wear layer in grey.  After the PIP surfacing is poured, it is hand-troweled using guide rods, and then cured to form a unitary (unbroken) sheet of shock-absorbing safety surface.

Poured-in-place surfacing is one of the most versatile, durable and visually attractive surfacing options available.  The end result is a highly durable, permeable, slip-resistant surface providing cushioned comfort with a lifetime of up to ten years.  Because it is a unitary surface, PIP does not move or shift around for ease of cleanup and ongoing maintenance.
PIP also comes in different thicknesses, determined by the maximum critical fall height needed for the playground.  This ensures maximum safety for all the kids we are responsible for. Because PIP is a seamless surfacing material typically sloped to ground level, it is highly ADA accessible. This means wheelchairs or walkers can move easily over the surface, unlike with gravel, sand or  mulch.
