PlayBound™ poured-in-place rubber surfacing is an innovative and advanced solution to the more traditional materials commonly used for safety surfaces in recreational settings. It offers superior safety by exceeding the standards in regulated safety requirements, maximum durability, as well as unsurpassable longevity and endless creative possibilities. This PlayBound™ surface is a 2-layer system consisting of a base material made of 100% post-consumer recycled rubber and polyurethane. These materials are mixed and applied on site. The thickness of this surface can be modified to meet critical fall heights providing maximum safety.

Consistency in the SBR (base material) and EPDM (top coat material) which makes the PlayBound™ surface is crucial. A low dust content and high production quality lead to consistency and proven results. It reduces the amount of urethane that is absorbed by the dust and maximizes the amount of urethane that remains to bond granules and strands together, which provides the strength of the system.
Our urethane is specially formulated for PlayBound™ playgrounds and recreation areas. Urethane for playground surfacing requires particular levels of tensile strength, flexibility, and working time versus curing time. It is critical that a proven urethane product be used.
The urethane and rubber is mixed to create the ideal balance. We use a volume of urethane that provides superior strength and durability with a volume and density of rubber that maximizes the resilience of the PlayBound™ surface.
The basemat provides the shock absorbency in the system. The objective is to have a medium density layer with a medium amount of urethane in the mix. Too much urethane in the mix makes the system hard and unforgiving. Not enough urethane can result in a premature breakdown of the basemat. Meak's surfacing has mastered the art of
creating the perfect ratio.
Meak applies an industry-leading 2.44 lbs. per square foot in its PlayBound™ surface. A higher rate of material (as measured by weight) per square foot means a tougher, longer lasting top surface. Compare the weight of material that Meak applies in the top surface to the competition, and you'll see why we're the most sought after poured-in-place installation company in the Midwest.
Proper PlayBound™ installation requires highly trained crews who specialize in all phases of the project. Our experienced crews have installed over 3,000 poured-in-place projects- over 1,000,000 square feet, throughout the Midwest and beyond- venturing as far as Puerto Rico and even Guam! Know that when Meak is doing the install, you have the most experienced and seasoned crews in the industry doing the work.
Every Surface America System is designed and manufactured with long-term performance in mind. We select the best material components available and design each surface with the characteristics necessary for the application. All materials are sourced from – and products made in – USA. you can be assured that quality control and customer satisfaction are our highest priorities.
