The Genesis PIP was specifically designed to integrate the best features of playground tiles and poured-in-place into a single product.
Genesis offers all of the safety performance and engineered design features of a well manufactured safety tile, while simultaneously providing the playful design capabilities expected in a poured-in-place surface.
Our highly-engineered safety performance layer is made from ultra-durable, vulcanized rubber, and produced under strictly-controlled factory conditions translating into the consistency and safety performance you expect from a well-manufactured tile.
And with the Genesis System, there is no trade-off in design. Our inter-locking, hollow-cone base system is in-filled with rubber mulch to provide a stable, rapidly draining cushion layer…
…and topped with an industry standard, 1/2 inch thick layer of colorful EPDM giving you all of the design potential of a traditional poured-in-place system, and all of the performance of a high-quality tile.
Genesis is comprised of an engineered, vulcanized interlocking rubber tile, infilled with loose rubber
and topped with a traditional poured in place top layer. Genesis was designed to take advantage of the engineering and consistency associated with factory made tiles while providing all of the colourful designs and free flowing patterns that a poured surface can offer.
The advantage that Genesis offers is in the engineered cushion layer. This layer provides a level of safety performance, consistency and longevity that cannot be achieved with traditional poured-in-place surfaces. In fact, Genesis performs in the 300 HIC range at 8 feet.
Although concrete and asphalt are always the sub-surface of choice, Genesis can be installed over a
properly prepared aggregate sub-base.
No. Since the cushion layer consists of an interlocking moulded tile, all Genesis surfaces are 3.5 inches thick.
As with most unitary surfaces, ongoing routine maintenance is not required in order to maintain safety performance.
Genesis is generally more cost effective compared traditional poured systems while simultaneously
offering far superior safety ratings.
