EverTop™ Pour-in-Place Top Surface Layer for Playgrounds

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 consisting of recycled post-industrial EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) rubber and polyurethane. It 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.

Easily customized to complement playground settings or high-traffic areas.

Because the rubber and urethane components are mixed and applied on-site, having school colors, logos, games and/or geometric shapes permanently incorporated into the surface is easily accomplished.

EverTop includes an industry-leading percentage of material in its top surface, significantly increasing the surface’s expected life.

Industry-leading warranty.

When used with aliphatic urethane binder, EverTop comes with a 10-year warranty. When used with aromatic urethane binder, EverTop comes with a 7-year warranty.

Rubber Colors: Any of these colors can be mixed in combination with another color or a mixture of colors to achieve a blended, speckled look. A percentage of black mixed with a color or multiple colors camouflages dirt and reduces the price. All other factors being equal, the higher the percentage of black in the top surface mix, the lower the price.

Urethane Choices: Throughout the industry, the urethane binder that encapsulates the granules is produced in two forms: aromatic (our Super-7 system with a 7-year warranty) and aliphatic (our Extreme-10 system with a 10-year warranty). It is not required to use an aliphatic binder, but from an aesthetic standpoint, it is particularly advisable to consider its use with colors such as blue, teal, purple, pearl, eggshell, and grays because aromatic binder “yellows” slightly upon exposure to ultraviolet rays. Most of this thin layer of urethane wears off with foot traffic and weathering, typically within two to six months. This characteristic applies industry-wide. Extreme-10 (using aliphatic urethane) comes with added cost, but added benefits, too. Upgraded ingredients in the formulation lead to superior performance throughout the system’s life.

  • Greater resistance to wear and tear from foot traffic and the elements
  • Outstanding tensile strength
  • “Clear as water” appearance makes the surface vibrant and the rubber true to color

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.
