Preparing the Sub-Base
The surfaces required for playfix® are identical to those for Regupol® Safety and Elastic Tiles. playfix® can be laid on both bound and unbound sub-bases. Care should be taken to ensure that over a distance of 4 m, the difference in level does not exceed 10 mm. The unbound sub-base must be compacted to ensure that it is stable and crush-resistant. When laying playfix® on top of existing surfaces, irregularities must be levelled out. Furthermore, care should be taken to ensure an adequate shear strength and frost resistance.
Before installing playfix® the surface should be enclosed by a restraint. We recommend the elastic Regupol® Edging Elements. Usually, the distance between the top edge of the edging element and the top edge of the sub-base is equivalent to the thickness of the playfix® safety flooring. Stumble edges are thus avoided.
Both layers of playfix® - the lower base layer and the upper coloured wear layer - are applied in a semi-fluid state in situ onto the prepared area. This work can only be carried out by BSW or an authorised agent as installation requires experience and professional expertise.
