Playtop is committed to being the surfacing industry’s green leader who, through development of new technologies and innovative processes, incorporate recycled components into our great variety of surfacing systems, removing these from the waste stream and prolonging their life cycle.
Playtop Licensing process almost 20,000 Tonnes of REACH compliant end of life bus and truck tyres. The clean rubber from this process is used as base layer for Playtop’s high quality playground and recreational systems, whilst all steel is separated and given new life as reinforcement fibres in industrial concrete flooring and smelted to produce cast iron products such as road manhole covers.
All tyres processed in our plant are 100% recycled and reused.
Playtop reinforces its environmental commitment through our close partnership with Nike where Playtop incorporates used and ground up sports shoes and incorporates them in our great variety of surfaces – a product which when blended with Playtop EPDM will give the surfaces an attractive and speckled look. We call this unique product, Playtop with Nike Grind.
Through Playtop with Nike Grind we not only wish to support Nike in their mission to give new life to waste material and to work towards a zero-waste future, we also are determined to spread global awareness of the importance of recycling and waste reduction to both public administrators and educational entities and we believe that this is best done best through leading by example.
We join our global partner Nike in a vision of a zero waste future, but in fact, the true environmentalists are all those customers around the world who everyday choose to use Playtop products as their preferred surfacing solution.
