When it’s time to train, you need a training surface you can count on and one that’s as tough as the people training on it. Rubber mulch is the smart choice for all obstacle course, ropes course, and combat training course safety surfacing. Not only does rubber mulch help improve training safety, it’s more durable, cost-effective, maintenance free, and eco-friendly that other safety surfacing materials. A training surface material like rubber mulch can greatly reduce any injuries your participants might sustain.

Unlike wood mulch/chips, pea gravel, and sand, rubber mulch does not turn into a compacted or hard surface with frequent use. It won’t blow away in high winds or float away during big rain storms either, and stays in place to keep your trainee safe. Rubber mulch helps cushion falls it provides 2.5 times more fall protection than grass, dirt, sand, pea gravel, engineered wood fiber (EWF), and wood mulch.

Rubber Mulch Cost Benefits

Products like wood mulch and engineered wood fiber (EWF) break down and decompose. As a result, the cost and maintenance of a training or obstacle course using wood mulch or engineered wood fiber (EWF) significantly increases over time. Additionally, as these products break down and decompose the critical fall height protection they provide is reduced. GroundSmart® Rubber Mulch does not break down or decompose and helps create safer, smarter courses that are ready for training 365 days a year, year after year.
