Validation & Testing

No other Playground safety product in the world has undergone the years of rigorous testing and validation that DuroMat Extended Life™ playground tiles have.


ADA Accessible DuroMat Extended Life™ playground safety tiles are the only tiles made with Welch Product's patented "cold cure" process that converts crumb rubber into a variety of high quality safety surfacing products.  Our patented manufacturing process enhances the life expectancy and cushioning effects of the tiles, keeping kids safe for many years. 


Testing by the National Program for Playground Safety (NPPS), funded by the Iowa Legislature in 2003, 2004 & 2005, demonstrated that installation of ADA compliant DuroMat playground tiles reduced serious playground injuries by 75%, resulting in huge savings just in the cost of medical bills and time away from work.
