Playgrounds Unlimited is Northern California’s leading installer of Poured In Place Rubber Safety Surfacing. We have been installing Poured In Place rubber surfacing with our own, in house employee’s, for over 20 years.

In our 20 years of installing rubber surfacing we have tried many different poured rubber systems gaining invaluable experience on what works and what doesn’t. We were provided the opportunity to work directly with manufacturer’s to help develop our “PLAYPOUR” system with Ecore International that is a product mix, designed specifically for Northern California’s unique climate. We have been using the PLAYPOUR system for more than 10 years with great success, we believe in it, and we stand behind it.


PLAYPOUR Poured In Place is a 2-layer, seamless system comprised of a base layer of 100% post consumer recycled SBR rubber & polyurethane binder and a top layer of EPDM rubber and polyurethane binder to create a porous uniform surface. The system is mixed and applied in the field and can be installed over a compacted sub-grade of base rock, asphalt, or concrete in any configuration and dimensions, with thickness typically based on required critical fall height. PLAYPOUR is IPEMA certified, additional product and test data can be found in our specifications.


Installation is a critical component of any Poured In Place system. Our experience with various products and conditions in Northern CA has helped us develop systematic installation techniques that consider mix timing, temperature, humidity, and sub base conditions, allowing us to provide the highest quality, uniform & consistent installations in the Poured In Place industry.

Whether you are installing a 50/50 Standard color mix pad or 100% color with designs and color blends our team of specialty installers is the right choice for your next project. We understand the investment in your surfacing and our installation team takes pride in every job we install so that you get the most out of your surfacing system for years to come.


Typical mixes for poured in place rubber are 50% Black and 50% Standard Color.  Standard colors include royal blue, bright green, beige, terracotta and light gray.  Use the PIP color mixer to get an idea of what your color blend of choice will be.

The natural alternative for playground safety surfacing is our TigerTurf synthetic grass. Synthetic lawn has evolved from residential and commercial applications to finding its way into the playground market. This beautiful, lush grass is strong enough for high traffic areas in schools or public parks and soft enough for kids to play on without the risk of serious injuries.

Our unique surfacing system begins with importing a structural sub-base of “fines” and compacting to industry standards. We then add a poured-in-place rubber buffing pad or high density polyethylene foam safety padding as the cushion course under the playground structure. Last, we install TigerTurf synthetic lawn over the entire area.

This system is far superior to others on the market because of the deep cushion under-pad and the extraordinary weight and durability of the yarn that form the blades of the synthetic grass.

Simply the best artificial turf system on the market!
