Why Are Rubber Chippings Good for the Environment
Rubber Chippings were born out of an idea with what to do with waste tyres. Tyres at the end of their vehicular life due to wear or damage causes the UK a huge problem regarding their safe and environmentally sound disposal.
The waste tyres are chopped and shredded into small and randomly shaped chippings. All the tyre wire in the PLAYSAFE range is removed at the shredding process, leaving just the Rubber Chippings. We take the Rubber Chippings and coat with a colourful, durable, weather resistant and non-hazardous paint, turning the once waste tyre into highly colourful and durable Rubber Chipping that is the ideal solution for use in your children’s play areas.
Our Rubber Chippings provide a very clean, surface for your gardens. They are completely impervious to moisture so any contaminants that lands on them are very quickly washed away with rain water or when watering your garden. Regular hosing down keeps the chippings looking clean and provides a dust free environment, they are durable and weather stable which enables rain or hose water to quickly soak through and away from the Rubber Chippings allowing fast drying time allowing playtime to resume quicker and last longer after a rain shower.
With the recent flooding problems experienced all over the country, environmental experts are saying we should reduce the amount of concreting in our garden and driveway areas to allow rain water to soak into the ground, therefore helping to stop the risk of flooding. Using our coloured rubber chipping not only allow a garden area too low very attractive but are also completely maintenance free, and have superb drainage properties as the rubber chippings are completely water proof which will help stop water from standing and pooling and potentially becoming a flood issue.
At REBOUND we aim to manufacture the best and highest quality of coloured Rubber Chipping for use in children’s play areas and gardens. Our coloured rubber chippings help provide safe and functional surfaces that require no maintenance once applied.
