The only virgin sponge rubber mulch
As a division of a children's toy manufacturer since 1945, Rainbow Mulch was born from the idea that a play surface can also be a toy. Rainbow Mulch is a rubber playground mulch surface that not only surpasses every other playground surface in fall protection, but kids insist on playing IN it, rather than on it. It is the only tire free rubber mulch surface made of virgin sponge rubber.
Rainbow Mulch is closed-cell sponge rubber; it has shock absorbing and high performing properties, perfectly designed for an interactive play material and protective surface. Rainbow Mulch is the best fall protection playground surface. It is ASTM tested at 3" depth for a 20 ft. critical fall height, which is unmatched to any other rubber surface on the market today.
Thousands of playgrounds have been transformed across the county and rubber playground mulch surfacing has been redefined. Parents and administrators that invest in Rainbow Mulch rave about their kids’ priceless reactions. They find peace of mind when creating a luxury, high-performing space that is clean, safe, and provides a space for limitless adventure.
