  • St. Louis, MO-IL (1888PressRelease) July 16, 2010 - PEMŽ Surface Creations, a leader in premium slip-resistant matting, provides unique solutions to parks and playgrounds to reduce slippage and provide padding for safety and comfort, while decreasing injuries in fall zones. PEM's playground matting can be combined with a subsurface of loose fill rubber, contained in chambers, to create an innovative playground surface. The company's playground matting, combined with the rubber subsurface, can meet critical fall heights from 10 feet, to greater than 12 feet.

    "Faced with the serious risks of injuries from children slipping and falling on playgrounds, park directors and landscape architects have been using PEM playground matting in their design and construction," said Rob Amelung, vice-president of PEM Surface Creations. "It is a cost-effective alternative that does not sacrifice safety or quality."

    Constructed using poly extruded matting (PEM) made from virgin raw thermal plastics, the matting is designed using a porous looping construction that creates a durable and soft textured surface. The material contains an antimicrobial biocide that guards against the growth of mildew, fungi and bacteria. The porous construction allows moisture to quickly drain through the layers of PEM matting to eliminate standing water and reduce algae growth. PEM's playground matting is resistant to environmental and chemical degradation, extreme temperature and ultraviolent exposure.

    PEM is lightweight for easy handling and trims effortlessly with an utility knife for custom fitting in all areas. PEM can be self installed or certified installers are available. The matting provides low maintenance and cleans with only a sweeping, wash down, or leaf blower. PEM is available in various colors, including hunter green, black, chocolate brown, sandstone, gray and blue.
