Step 1: The first step in this rubber flooring installation process is to make sure that you have a leveled area where you have decided to place your new playground matting. Proceed by removing any debris from this area and make sure to have your space tidy. Use a measuring tape to decide how large your flooring will need to be and make sure to purchase the appropriate amount of tiles and ramps.
Step 2: Organize your rubber playground floor tiles and other flooring products that you will need. This will include:
- Eco-Safety tiles
- Eco-Safety ramps
- Interlocking pins
Step 3: Begin laying down your Eco-Safety tiles in the area designated and connecting them with the interlocking pins. Simply place the pins in the holes located around the perimeter of each tile and connect them to the tiles surrounding it. Continue this process until you have covered the entire surface that you have designated for your new playground. Typically no adhesive is needed because the weight of each tile is substantial enough to keep this flooring firm on the ground. However, for permanent installation you can use industrial adhesive on the bottom surface of your tiles.
Step 4: Once you have your Eco-Safety tiles assembled it is time to add the needed ramps along the border of these rubber tiles. Ramps are also easily connected using this same interlocking pin mechanism. Start at one edge of the playground matting and travel clock-wise placing the pins in the holes and connecting them to the ramps.
Step 5: Once you have finished placing your ramps around the perimeter of this product, you will soon realize how Eco-Safety tiles creates the best playground surfaces for any backyard. So set up that new swing set and jungle gym on your new rubber flooring and be on your way to enjoying your new addition to your house!
