Safety and Help Prevent Head Injuries: Ensuring children's
safety during thousands of hours of playground time is an awesome
challenge. One of the most effective ways to decrease the threat
of danger is to install proper surfacing under the playground
equipment. Indeed, an asphalt surface can be life threatening.
Why not make sure that the surface you install will be the best
protection against serious head injuries?

Independent Testing Proves Superiority: The Consumer product
Safety Commission has determined that the risk of serious head
injury due to a head-first fall is minimal when the amount of
force the head absorbs is 200 g's or less. A child landing on
asphalt from a height of seven feet would impact with a force
of several thousand g's. In fact, hitting asphalt from a height
of only two inches incurs a g Force of over 300 g's. Rigorous
testing has proven that a child falling head first from seven
feet and hitting his head on The Mat King Force Field Safety Surface
would sustain a g Force of less than 200. This incredible amount
of deceleration would thus protect against serious head injuries.
Durable Rubber Construction Is Long-Lasting and Maintenance Free:
Unlike other surfacing materials made of rubber granules or ground
up tires, Force Field 5', 8' and 10' Safety Surface is manufactured
from 100% top grade rubber compounds. Under high compression,
the rubber is molded into a solid, one piece block. The result?
A highly dense, intensely durable product that resists wear, weather,
cutting and puncture. Because Force Field 5', 8' and 10' Safety
Surface is so dense, its impermeable. Many less dense surfaces
will absorb water, and burn when ignited. Force Field Safety Surface
cannot absorb water. So it won't loose it's resilience in freezing
Under normal conditions, Force Field 5', 8' and 10' Safety Surface
is self-extinguishing against fire. The most valuable
benefit of it's high density is durability which has been proven
by the many installations which have survived over two decades
Unique Shock Absorbing Construction: The underside of each
of Force Field 5', 8' and 10' Safety Surface cushion has an
exclusive waffle construction. Just like a shock absorber, the
columns are designed to fully collapse, greatly decelerating
the force of a falling child. This unique design and compound
expertise offer more safety, inch per inch, than any other product
on the market. Force Field Safety Surface is manufactured in
steel molds, so each one is exactly the same. Other surfaces
are mixed and poured on site, which can compromise consistency
and safety performance.
and Vandal Resistant: The anchoring system makes it practically
impossible to pull up from the ground. Every tile is locked
down with multiple anchors and each one is secured below the
surface of the ground with resin grout poured into 3" footings.
This patent-pending reinforced rubber anchor, like the rest
of the mat, collapses upon impact to absorb shock. It's easy
to install, and barely visible in the mat, yet almost impossible
to pull up.
Each 4' x 4' tile weighs an average of sixty five pounds (65
lbs.), which further reduces the danger of theft, another reason
why Force Field Safety Surface will endure year after year in
some of the highest crime areas in the world.
Trip-Free and Handicap Accessible: Force Field Safety Surface
tiles join uniformly to form a flat unbroken surface perfect
for wheelchairs. Each border and corner tile has a full 6-inch
beveled edge to create a trip-free transition from the play
yard to the safety pad.
Easy Drainage: Unlike other surfacings which bond
to the ground with an adhesive, the design of Force Field
Safety Surface is unique in that it allows water to drain
freely. In fact, the playground surface will drain just
as well as if there was no mat there at all.
Simple Installation: Just put the tile down, drill
a hole and secure the anchor. The wonderfully simple design
of The Mat King Bounce Control Safety Surface allows for
quick installation. It's simpler, less expensive, and cleaner
than gluing down a surface or pouring a liquid mix. In the
unlikely event that a tile is damaged, individual replacement
blocks are easily installed.
When Safety Depends On You: It's not easy
being responsible for the safety of a play yard. But with the
right surface, you can greatly reduce the threat of danger. Why
not install cushioning that meets all requirements of the Consumer
Products Safety Commission and has been successful in thousands
of locations throughout the world? Compression-molded waffle pattern
mats have been protecting children for more than thirty years.
The Mat King Force Field Safety Surface is the best yet. That
is important. Children don't worry about safety. You have to.
