Fall protection mats and plates - safety and fall protection for the whole family!
Are you looking for fall protection mats because you want to ensure less risk? We think that's very good. That's why we only work with the best suppliers and manufacturers in the field of fall protection. The WARCO mat is extremely high-quality, inexpensive and is also used on many playgrounds.
Finally, the children let loose on the playground and often jump down from scaffolding. However, to prevent injuries or serious accidents, there are often green or other colored panels and rubber mats under the scaffolding or a scaffolding gymnastics equipment.
Explained in physical terms, the fall protection mats reduce the impact energy. But not only are they super helpful in terms of protection and risk-free, they also look very good. After all, there are different versions of the elements. In addition, there is the extremely good robustness.
However, sometimes the simple installation is not enough. Sometimes they also have to be anchored correctly. If you already rely on goods from us here, such as a gymnastics bar or other climbing frame, then you have the option of anchoring for even greater protection.
It doesn't matter whether you need them in green for your garden and therefore your own use or whether you run a fitness studio or similar and want to protect the ground from the weights, you will always find the right rubber mat for your project with us. The protection is suitable for the playground as well as for the garden. After all, we want to keep it as simple as possible.
When does the fall protection mat provide safety?
The name of the product is a bit misleading. After all, the fall is primarily described here. However, the base consists of high-quality rubber granules, red or black and so on. Rubber granulate has the property that it has an anti-slip effect. Since children often run and romp around, a solid surface is very important.
The underlay already protects against a fall and ensures that serious injuries do not occur in the first place. The mat is also very soft. Playing on it is particularly pleasant and convenient.
Furthermore, it also acts as a floor cold-insulating effect. This means that your child can also simply walk around without socks when the temperatures are a little cooler. Because the feet stay warm and safe thanks to the granulate floor covering - perfect for the transition times between the seasons.
However, you can also adjust or select the strength individually. We have listed different models in our online shop and offer low prices for the WARCO series.
In case of the case...
Should the worst case occur, the pad must also hold and cushion the fall. This is also referred to as the critical fall height. Based on this you have to select the appropriate topping. Finally, the case must also be cushioned. So before you shop here, you should know the exact height of your scaffolding. If you bought a gymnastics bar or something similar from us, you can find it on the corresponding product detail page.
Due to the different values, we also offer different safety mats with individual impact surfaces. This is the only way to effectively cushion falls. The impact energy is greatly reduced.
You can think of it as dropping a heavy dumbbell from a meter. Unless you have a rubber mat, the subsoil will be destroyed. Such a mat cushions the dumbbell and does not destroy the floor. This also reduces the risk of injury to the human body.
You may now have the idea of using sand, mulch or other natural products. However, we can only advise against it. Because these weather in most cases. Sand would be blown away over time. The effort would simply be too great.
A closer look reveals that the money is being invested more sensibly here. Because a panel weighs about 3 kilograms and has an extremely long service life.
What speaks against other variants and what are the advantages of this model?
As already briefly mentioned, this security variant has significant advantages over other models and products. Floor coverings are a difficult subject and the mats have many advantages here. For example, the open-pored surface structure ensures that the panels dry very quickly after rain or snow and are ready for use again.
In addition, there are channels at the bottom that provide drainage. If it is wet under the surface, this area also dries quickly, making mold formation almost impossible. Waterlogging is also prevented.
Our customers have not only praised the practicality, but also the creative possibilities. Finally, we offer different colors so that you can design fun patterns and not just have a boring plain background.
For example, you can use it to design an island for your child to play on. Depending on the age, the game “Do not touch the ground” is interesting. However, you also have to pay attention to the play tower and other play equipment.
After all, a plate in green is intended for different heights than the same item in a different colour. With some models, the color doesn't matter at all and doesn't change anything on the rubber. So check out our articles well in advance.
Another aspect is that the little ones like to use the swing. These are available from us as accessories and can be attached to our play towers. Now it is much more difficult to calculate the measure of height. Because the little ones also like to jump out of the swing. The role of the rubber mats should not be underestimated here.
You will also find rubber mats with connecting dowels for your playground, swings or scaffolding. In this way, they are even more closely connected and the surface can neither be moved nor easily adjusted.
This means that no gaps can form between the individual elements. Otherwise it could happen that your child's foot twists and serious injuries occur.
How to order your fall protection mats from us!
We only sell WARCO flooring. After all, this is one of the leading suppliers and manufacturers in this segment, so we sell the floor mats with a clear conscience.
You can find a lot more information in the WARCO web shop itself. Our prices refer to four elements in the 50 x 50 format, so you have a total of one square meter.
How are the fall protection mats laid?
Before you start work, you basically need a laying plan. If you need detailed instructions, then click on the linked article. There you will learn exactly how to lay the elements correctly.
With the plan, you first have to measure the area and then draw it in. From practice we recommend a squared sheet of paper. Finally, the plan tells you how many you actually need.
In addition, you have to consider inclines. Because there are some subsoils that are not drainable. To prevent mold from forming, the rainwater should be able to run off. A small slope would be enough. If this is not possible, you should not worry too much.
The rubber granulate is often permeable enough to allow rainwater to drain away. Because the elements have a drainage underside.
Cutting the rubber sheets
The material behaves similar to wood. That's why you should use similar tools when cutting as if you were working with wood. You certainly have a saw at home and that would be sufficient for the cutting to begin with. In addition, you can also use a powerful table saw, which is actually used on the construction site.
A jigsaw with special saw blades for rubber is also available and can also be used. We can also recommend the chainsaw and a sharp knife with a stable blade. However, you should never use a cutting disc or hacksaw. These two tools are extremely unsuitable.
Particularly soft elements
There are also particularly soft elements. However, soft is not always better. Because the fall is cushioned more, so that the joints are heavily stressed. It's not particularly good for the body. However, if your adolescents like to play on the rubber fall protection mats, you can also opt for particularly soft fall protection mats.
