Re: Climbing Wall Landing Surfaces




Lara,  

There's a New Jersey company called TIREC which makes 
several products from recycled tires.  One of their 
products, Perma-Turf, is marketed as a playground 
safety surface that is resilient and absorbs impact.  

You can reach them at 800-993-9411, 
or their web page:  www.perma-turf.com

I hope this is helpful.
