Jelly Bean Rubber Mulch from Jelly Bean Playground Rubber Flooring is 100% non-tire playground rubber mulch. It is manufactured from non-toxic, sterile, and latex-free rubber tiles originally produced for schools. The product is head impact attenuation, ADA Approved.
Jelly Bean Rubber Mulch can be used indoors, does not contain wires, does not contain carcinogens or VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and exceeds California guidelines for indoor air quality. It is made from the scraps and cutoffs from manufacturing a rubber tile. When the tile is stamped the excess is taken and run into a chipper to make the Jelly Bean Rubber Mulch. This pre-consumer virgin rubber is sterile, latex free, 100% free of contaminants, and does not hold heat. In addition, the tile recycled has an antimicrobial and anti-fungal baked in so is suitable for humid climates.
Rubber is vulcanized for a long-lasting product. Jelly Bean Rubber Mulch is clean and easy—no paint is present, so the color does not leach; the color mix is the natural color of the rubber
There mulch produced from shredded tires has some issues. There is sometimes steel cabling and wiring that can become exposed. But even worse are the chemicals from the tires. In addition to the composition of the tires there is the issue of contamination. These are the toxins tires might encounter when on the road such as petrochemicals or lead contaminants from roadway paint.
The Jelly Bean playground rubber mulch does not have to be replaced regularly to maintain compliance, will not rot, clog drains, cause allergies, or attract insects. The only maintenance is occasional raking as needed in high traffic spots. The Jelly bean Rubber Mulch tends to stay put better than tire rubber mulch due to its piece size.
The vulcanized product meets all state and federal requirements for playground safety and carries a 20 year warranty.
