Safety mats and panels - Safety and fall protection for the entire family!
Do you search for fall protection mats, because you want to provide for more risklessness? We think that's very good. That is why we only work with the best suppliers and manufacturers in the field of fall protection. The fall protection mat from WARCO is extremely high-quality, inexpensive and is also used on many playgrounds.
On the playground the children can finally get out and often jump down from scaffolds. In order to avoid injuries or serious accidents, fall protection plates and rubber mats are often placed under the scaffolding or a gymnastics device.
Physically explained, the fall protection mats reduce the impact energy. But not only are they super helpful in terms of protection and lack of risk, they also look very good. Finally there are the 50x50 elements in different colours and designs. In addition, the extremely good robustness is added.
However, simple laying is sometimes not enough. In some cases, the fall protection plates must also be anchored correctly. If you already rely on our products here, such as a gymnastic or other climbing scaffold, then you have the option of anchoring for even greater protection.
It doesn't matter whether you need the fall protection mats for your garden and therefore your own use or whether you run a gym 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 fall 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 safety mat provide safety?
The name of the product is somewhat misleading. After all, the fall is primarily described here. However, the base consists of high-quality rubber granulate in colours such as red or black. 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 rubber underlay thus already protects against falls and ensures that there are no worse injuries in the first place. The mat is also very soft. Playing on it is especially pleasant and comfortable.
Ferner the fall protection mat also insulates against bodekälte. This means that your child can simply walk around without socks at slightly fresher temperatures. Because the feet remain warm and safe thanks to the granulate floor covering - perfect for the transition times between the seasons.
but you can also adjust or choose the strength individually. We have listed different models in our online shop and offer here favourable prices for the WARCO fall protection plates.
In case of emergency...
If the worst case should occur, the base must also hold and dampen the fall. This is also referred to as the critical drop height. Based on this you have to select the appropriate surface. Finally, the case must also be cushioned. So before you shop here, you should know the exact height of your scaffold. If you have bought a Turnreck or similar from us, you will find it on the corresponding product detail page.
Because of the different values we also offer different fall protection mats with individual impact surfaces. Only in this way can falls be effectively cushioned. The impact energy is greatly reduced.
You can imagine it like dropping a heavy dumbbell out of a meter. If you do not have a rubber mat, the substrate will be destroyed. The dumbbell is sprung by a fall protection mat and does not destroy the floor. This also reduces the risk of injury to the human body.
You might get the idea to use 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 at the fall protection mats reveals that the money is invested more sensibly here. Because a panel weighs approx. 3 kilograms and has an extremely long service life.
What are the advantages of this model?
As already briefly mentioned, this safety variant has striking advantages over other models and products. Floor coverings are a difficult subject and here the mats have many advantages. 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 should be wet under the surface, also this place dries briskly, so that mould formation is almost impossible. Stagnant moisture is also prevented.
our customers not only praised the practical suitability but also the possibilities of creativity. Finally, we offer different colors so that you can create funny patterns and not just have a boring monochrome background.
For example, you can use it to design an island where your child can play. Depending on the age, the game "Do not touch the ground" is interesting. However, you must also pay attention to the play tower and other play equipment.
Finally, a green fall protection panel is intended for other heights than the same article in another color. With some models the colour does not matter at all and does not change anything on the surface. Take a good look at our products 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 rubber mats should not be underestimated here.
You will find rubber mats with connecting dowels for your playground, swings or playgrounds. This way they are even more closely connected and the surface can neither be moved nor easily adjusted.
This way no columns between the single elements can occur. Otherwise it could happen that your child's foot could twist and cause worse injuries.
How to order your fall protection mats!
We only sell WARCO fall protection mats. After all, this is one of the leading suppliers and manufacturers in this segment, so that we sell the fall protection mats with a clear conscience.
In the webshop of WARCO itself you will find much more information. Our prices refer to four elements each in the 50x50 format, so that you have a total of one square metre.
How to lay the fall protection mats?
Before you start working, you basically need a laying plan. If you need detailed instructions, please click on the linked article. There you will learn exactly how to lay the elements correctly.
In the plan you first have to measure the area and then draw it. From practical experience, we recommend the use of a checkered sheet of paper. Finally, the plan will tell you how many fall protection mats you need.
Beyond that you have to pay attention to gradient. Because there are some substrates that are not seepable. In order to prevent the formation of mould, rainwater should be able to drain off. A small gradient would be enough. If this is not possible, you should not worry about it.
often the rubber granulate is permeable enough to allow rainwater to drain off itself. Because the elements have a drainage underside.
cut of rubber plates
The material behaves similar to wood. Therefore 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 cutting in the beginning. You can also use a powerful circular 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. In addition, we can recommend the chainsaw as well as a sharp knife with a stable blade. However, you should never use a cut-off wheel or a metal saw. These two tools are extremely unsuitable.
especially soft elements
The elements are also particularly soft. However, soft is not always better. This is because the fall is cushioned more strongly so that the joints are put under a lot of strain. It's not particularly good for the body. If, however, your adolescents like to play on the rubber fall protection mats, then you can also rely on particularly soft fall protection mats.
