About Playtop

Playtop Ltd is the UK licensee for the range of Playtop surfacing and shapes including safer surfacing, Playtop Spheres, Playtop Street and the 3D rubber animals range.

Why Choose Playtop? Our Global Appeal

For 40 years Playtop has been leading the way with impact-absorbing play surfacing. It pioneered the use of rubber in wet-pour, went on to become the UK's leading brand and is now installed worldwide in over 50 countries.

Ever since the first installation of Playtop impact-absorbing playground safety surfacing in 1977, the product has maintained its market-leading position by continually upgrading the technical performance while finding ways of remaining competitive.

Over the same period, the company has built up an international network of 45 licensee partners who now market and install the Playtop system around the world.

Technical Standards

Playtop played a key part in setting up the Association of Play Industries (API) in the UK in 1984.
