Awards & FAQ’s

What really makes ENDURO Rubber Mulch different?
There are many factors yet some key undisputeable facts are;

  • Like no other Enduro Rubber Mulch product lines have been independently tested to verify a range of water saving, safety and playground factors. 
  • Like no other Enduro Rubber Mulch products carry not one but two credentials that have been officially awarded to us after intense assessment by two of the nations leading bodies and thier renown panel of judges and scrutineers.
  • Like no other Enduro carries the Smart APPROVED Watermark
  • Like no other Enduro Rubber Mulch carries the 2010 Savewater Finalist trademark
  • Like no other Enduro Kidsafe Playground Softfill carry compliance to Australian Standards

  

 

 

Are Rubber Mulch and related products well research, proven, tried and tested?
Yes! In unison with our own scientific, compliance and certification processes and testing there are numerous leading tests and white papers undertaken in the USA over the last 10 to 12 years (the latest published 2007-2008) and across several European countries (published 2009). The papers cover many areas relating to rubber mulch some including history, toxicity, ingestion, flammability and environmental and social impact. Contact us if you would like to learn more. 

Is it flammable?
Like any material care should be taken when fire or flame is involved. Australian and long standing U.S. tests report rubber mulch is non flammable in the tests that have been undertaken and in addition are easily extinguished after a flame was applied during the testing.

How is shock-absorption determined?
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Testing Company, and the State of Illinois, among
numerous state and federal agencies, independent laboratories and licensed testing companies have conducted
various tests designed to measure the shock-absorption of various surface materials as they relate to falling
objects.

Tyre rubber shreds have been shown to consistently absorb more shock impact than any other standard surface
material. This is particularly important because more than 550,000 playground injuries end up in the emergency
room every year. That is more than 1,500 visits per day. The majority of those injuries are attributed to
falls. Therefore you can’t afford to have anything less than the world’s safest playground safety surface:
Rubber Mulch. (This information is based on US test only.)

Is there any steel content in Rubber Mulch?
No. Rubber Mulch 3cm shreds are smaller than most others. The smaller the shred, the less likely they are to
contain embedded steel wire. To ensure that all wire is removed, Rubber Mulch shreds pass through 3 unique,
state of the art magnets during the manufacturing process. This extra attention literally ensures no steel content.
In fact, Rubber Mulch is guaranteed to be 99.9% steel-free.

Will Rubber Mulch crumble, disintegrate, or decompose?

No. Rubber Mulch shreds are made from 100% recycled tyre rubber. All tyres are made of vulcanized rubber.
the vulcanizing process makes the rubber literally indestructible.

Is Rubber Mulch ever dusty or slippery?
No. In addition to promoting almost instantaneous drainage, Rubber Mulch retains small amounts of moisture,
which is just enough to prevent the accumulation of dust and slipperiness.


How does Rubber Mulch compare with shredded sneakers?

Shredded sneakers contain pieces of leather, which become slippery when wet, and eventually rot and break
down.

Does Rubber Mulch blow or wash away?
No. Rubber Mulch shreds are too heavy to be significantly affected by normal high winds or heavy rains.

Does Rubber Mulch fade?
No. Carbon black is a pigment which is an element in rubber tyres and is non fading

How should the play area be prepared?
We recommend the area be prepared ahead of time by clearing the ground of rocks, stumps and other debris,
then calculate an area that surrounds the play equipment of 1.8 m to 2.4m (commonly referred to as the "use"
or "fall zone").

Is Rubber Mulch Toxic?
No. A carrier solvent more efficient than water would be needed to extract toxic chemicals from tyre shreds in
quantity, and a suitable non polar vehicle would be required to penetrate protective skin layers for significant
absorption. This was deemed implausible in a playground situation.
