Three Lesser-Known Benefits Of PIP Rubber Flooring
Poured-in-place rubber installation is a popular choice for padding the ground surfaces that lie just below outdoor play structures like slides, swings, rock walls, and other climbers. PIP rubber flooring is flexible and adaptable enough to accommodate a diverse range of installations. It’s also available in a vast range of colors and can seamlessly coordinate with other style design elements. In fact, you can even choose PIP rubber surfacing for unique branding elements like your business logo or school mascot. At Pro-Techs Surfacing, we want to share some of the lesser-known benefits of these highly functional systems.
As a commercial property owner, it is always in your best interests to do all that you can to limit the risk of physical harm. Whether people are actively using your play areas or simply passing through, any injuries that they sustain as part of trip or fall accidents, impact events, and slipping could come back to haunt you. Unfortunately, some commercial property owners have even been sued by trespassers. Creating a property design that proactively prevents premises liability events will ensure that you fulfill your duty of care and keep yourself protected.
Our PIP systems offer shock absorption. This way, if children lose their footing or their grip, they won’t come crashing down onto a hard, inflexible surface that causes broken bone or soft tissue injuries. Not only does this limit the risk of premises liability claims, but it also makes businesses more appealing to parents. Parents are more eager to patronize establishments with accommodations for children if there’s a strong focus on safety in play area design.
It’s also important to note that PIP surfaces are incredibly easy to clean. You can hose these systems off with a garden hose several times each year. This is far different from mulch or sand which are both known to harbor pathogens and contaminants indefinitely. With loose-fill playground materials like these harboring ringworm, feces from stray animals and other horrors, it’s easy to see why poured-in-place rubber surfacing is the top choice for play spaces.
Our PIP floor solutions are enduring too. They’ll maintain their looks, functionality, and shock absorption capabilities for many years. These products hold up well in the natural elements and thus, they’re guaranteed to provide lasting value.
