Safety flooring with a critical fall height

Safety floor with critical fall height are produced by WARCO according to the norm EN1177.

WARCO safety flooring is produced of rubber granulate according to the norm EN 1177. Thanks to its elastic structure it has got fall-attenuating and protective properties but also it is robust enough to maintain heavy playground equipment (see-saw, carousel or climbing frame), gym equipment and furniture. Safety tiles are produced in various thicknesses corresponding to particular critical fall height values from 1 to 3 metres. It is worth mentioning that due to its fall-attenuating properties, elastic WARCO flooring may (and should be) installed also on terraces and all indoor and outdoor leisure areas where there are children and elderly persons.

Among WARCO products, we distinguish 3 basic categories:

  • TZ series - tiles with an interlocking zip, with zip teeth profiled on the tile’s edges. The installation does not require glueing or edging. This connection system ensures incredible stability and simple installation.
  • NF series - these are square tiles with a tongue and groove connection, the edges of the tile overlap thanks to the profiled rebated edge. Installation does not require glueing or edging.
  • FS series - these are tiles with straight edges which should be installed with plastic connectors and glue. This product should be installed only on an even and bound subfloor (concrete, tiles, panels, or compacted layer of grit and gravel which may be reinforced with a plastic stabilising grid).
