  Bounce Control Interlocking Safety Surface is designed with a special interlock system which is actually hidden from view under 1/4" rubber membrane. The interlock system, once engaged, is then sealed together with "hogrings" to create a permanent installation. The entire perimeter of the Bounce Control Interlocking Safety Surface pad is sub-anchored in three places every 24" inches. Each anchor comes with a soft rubber cover molded to it and is adhered to the subsurface with a resin grout into 4" footings.

       Tests have shown each anchor to withstand over three hundred pounds of pull. A complete Bounce Control Interlocking Safety Surface mat is virtually theft-proof and highly resistant to all forms of vandalism. Each border and corner tile has a full 3" beveled edge to create a trip-free transition from the play yard to the safety pad. Bounce Control Interlocking Safety Surface has a life expectancy in excess of ten years under normal usage and is virtually maintenance free.
