Rubber Mulch Critical Fall Height

The depth of the BounceBark bound rubber mulch surface depends on the critical fall height of the playground equipment.


We always recommend that British and European standards are adhered to. BS EN 1177:2008. This standard defines the critical fall height and surface depth, also the area to be covered from the play equipment.
