TuffMat Zero-Fill Mats for Playground Safety





No more unsightly holes, messy puddles or costly maintenance headaches.

Safety is paramount on any playground, especially under and around swing sets, spinners and sliding boards. Placing high-quality playground wear mats positioned to cushion the fall of playing children goes a long way in helping to reduce the rate of accidents and injuries. If you’re building a new playground or looking for ways to improve the look and safety of an existing one, Zeager Bros., Inc. offers the innovative solutions you’re looking for at reasonable prices.

Unfortunately, injuries happen on busy playgrounds where children are using apparatus such as tire swings, jungle gyms, merry go rounds and other equipment where there’s a potential for falls. That’s where new Zeager Zero-Fill™ TuffMat® mats work their hardest. You get the protection needed to keep kids safe and ensure your public, school yard, daycare or other outdoor play areas are certified safe and comply with all ASTM standards for ADA and they are easy to install!

How TuffMat® Zero-Fill™ Mats Work

Zeager Zero-Fill™ mats are made of various types of heavy-duty foam and offer an impact rating Protect Plus-certified for 8 feet. These solid, full-depth wear mats require no fill under or above the mat. You just place resilient Zero-Fill™ mats on the ground and spread our WoodCarpet® engineered wood fiber system around them. Our playground slide mats come in a variety of standard sizes to fit universal swings, spinners or tire swings and just about any other surface area you require.

Zero-Fill™ mats provide enhanced impact absorption to reduce the change of injuries and improve the safety appeal of outdoor playgrounds. And like all TuffMat® products, Zero-Fill™ mats keep the play area level by eliminating “kick out,” ensuring a no-trip play environment. We perform a comprehensive range of tests to confirm our recreational surfaces exceed the standards of what’s generally thought of as safe and acceptable. Zero-Fill™ mats … there’s nothing like them on the market.

All you need to do is have them installed, and you never have to worry about them again.
