Pathway Matta Installation Details

Pathway Matta surfaces are only available from Matta Products, ensuring they’re always professionally installed by our own, expert installation team. We take pride in every installation, guaranteeing a first class finish at each site, and as we work closely with all the UK’s leading play equipment manufacturers you can be sure that your safety surfacing will both compliment the equipment and be installed to an exact fit.

Our expert installers can fit Pathway Matta surfacing under and around all types of play equipment and the modular tile design allows the surfacing to be easily added to as a playground develops, making Pathway Matta surfacing one of the most versatile play surface solutions available.

 • Pathway Matta shockpads are laid onto a suitable base - the recycled rubber shockpads will be either 35mm or 60mm or a combination of these dependant on Critical Fall Height required

 • A solid base is essential to support the mats, and could consist of existing tarmac, concrete or paving slabs, or compacted hardcore in the case of new playground installation

• For a new installation, if a base needs to be made up for site, the minimum requirement would be compacted hardcore / scalpings to depth of at least 150mm compacted every 50mm

 • A geo textile weed barrier layer is then installed over the shockpads to prevent weed growth on the installation

 • Pathway Matta tiles are then laid over the weed barrier

 • The surface locks together using a male & female lug system, with every tile side having a lug every 100mm

 • The lugs are also glued together using Mattafix glue to help form one continuous, impenetrable surface, which helps ensure the surface cannot be pulled apart

 • Perimeter edges are then either ramped back down to existing ground levels using ramped edging, or buried into the ground, or finished flush with the surrounding surface with a U shaped channel edging fitted around all edges 

 • All edges are securely fixed to the ground using 5 x 225 mm nylon pins per 500mm length which lock into recesses in the mats, ensuring the surface is securely fitted tight to the ground
