Use in play areas where critical fall heights aren’t required.

Surface America’s EverTop is the top surface layer of the PlayBound Poured-in-Place system, and is commonly used in play areas without equipment, as well as in portions of playgrounds outside the equipment’s use zone. This achieves aesthetic consistency at a lower cost.  EverTop comes with a 7-YEAR or 10-YEAR warranty, depending on your urethane binder choice.

Our industry-leading percentage of material in the top surface significantly increases the playground surface’s expected life. Competitors use 10-40% less material in their top surfaces. More material in the top surface layer means superior tensile strength (side-to-side pulling) and superior taber abrasion (top down wear).

Base Options

Based on your project requirements or budget desires, there are several ways to reduce the overall project cost, while still providing a safe and durable playground surface.  Contact a Surface America Sales Representative about those options ... including color, top surface spec and warranty duration.

Warning: Like so many surfaces, including asphalt, sand, metal and plastic, all of which can be found in playground environments, rubber surfaces will get hot when exposed to direct sunlight. Surface America strongly recommends that children wear shoes when playing or walking on any rubber surface, regardless of the manufacturer or specific type of surface.
