TuffMat Surface Mats


Designed to be used under swings, at the exit and entrance to slides, spinners and other high traffic areas of your playground, our superior TuffMats® are more effective than any other wearmat. Their beveled edges and unique concave shape keep loose WoodCarpet® underneath them. 

 TuffMat® Surface Mats are installed on top of the surface keeping the area level and eliminating all kickout, which means maximum accessibility and fall protection where it is needed most.   

TuffMat® Playground Fall Protection Mats

Safety is paramount on any playground, TuffMat® mats from Zeager Bros. Inc. help to create a safer environment for children at schools, day care centers and other outdoor settings by providing enhanced protection against the falls that are a frequent occurrence on any playground.

What Are TuffMats®?

TuffMat® Resilient Wear Mats are playground slide mats designed for use under swings and at the entrance and exit to sliding boards and other high-traffic playground areas that are prone to falls. More effective than other wear mats on the market, TuffMats® feature a distinct concave shape, beveled edges and an easy-to-use fastening mechanism that will hold the underlying WoodCarpet® in place, even during heavy use. They also produce a level surface that eliminates kick-out, resulting in a “no-trip” fall protection solution that is far superior to those loose-laid swing set mats that seldom remain in place.
