Product Description

RubbaGrass® mats are designed and manufactured exclusively by The Rubber Company to provide superior safety, durability and versatility. Our rubber grass mats offer a discreet and cost-effective solution to easily increase the safety of natural grass playgrounds, activity centres, public areas, golf courses. We supply this product in two thicknesses as standard but most often 22mm and only recommend this thickness for any fall height protection.

As the name suggests, our RubbaGrass® mats are mainly used on grass. However, due to its versatility and high-quality materials we manufacture from, you can use our rubber grass mats in various environments. We regularly supply for our grass mats for use at: ice rinks, ski slopes, pathways, events for ground protection and even in bars and kitchens. A side from fall protection, these mats offer slip resistance, anti-fatigue properties, drainage holes for wet areas or spillage zones and ground reinforcement.

The RubbaGrass Difference – Before & After

The unique aperture design that our RubbaGrass® mats feature allow for higher rates of drainage. However, they also serve another key purpose which sets our rubber grass mats apart from other safety surfacing products. After the matting has been installed grass will begin to grow through the holes which, in time can hide the mats almost entirely. This enables you to greatly increase safety while also maintaining the natural look of your outdoor area.

Our rubber grass mats are suitable for use in all weather conditions. Unlike PVC matting, which becomes brittle in colder temperatures, our rubber grass matting properties do not fluctuate in different temperatures. This ensures that RubbaGrass® is able to provide consistent levels of safety and protection all year around.

Superb Safety Surfacing

A key feature of RubbaGrass® is the excellent critical fall heights the mats offer. This makes our rubber grass mats particularly popular for use in outdoor play areas as an extremely cost effective safety surface. Tall play equipment such as play frames, swings and slides all pose a potential hazard to children should they fall off. Our impact absorbing grass mats greatly reduce the risk of injury as they are soft and able to compress under pressure.

This graph provides the results of HIC fall height testing to BS EN 1177:2018 on concrete, grass and then on both with the use of RubbaGrass® . This is to make clear how the fall height can be achieved and how it can be used as a base layer for other systems. Critical fall height refers to the distance a child can fall without risk of serious injury. This means that larger play equipment will require a larger critical fall height in order to avoid any potential hazards.

Useful Additions

We also offer a number of ground protection and reinforcement products which are fully compatible with our RubbaGrass® safety mats.

Ground Reinforcement Mesh:

You can easily install our Grasshield® ground reinforcement mesh under the rubber grass mats to provide additional strength and stability. This product is particularly useful on soil which is prone to becoming waterlogged. You can also use this product in areas which receive high levels of footfall to protect against soil erosion.

Fixing Pegs and Ties:


We always suggest installing our RubbaGrass® safety mats using our secure barbed plastic pegs that will sit inside the holes of the mat. This ensures that the matting remains in place during periods of heavy footfall and adverse weather conditions. We advise using between 4-8 pegs per mat around the outer perimeter of the matting as standard. We also offer a heavy duty metal version which can be installed using drill and chuck, ideal for harder ground conditions.
