EPDM Rubber, Equestrian Safety Surfacing

Not all types of rubber can be used in the same spaces, and while some “professionals” will tell you they are able to work with you on making it possible, you should try to find the most suitable option based on budget, shock absorption levels, and durability or benefits. In the case of considering EPDM rubber, remember it is a synthetic type of rubber that is mostly used for industrial spaces. However, its durability and versatility do allow it to be used in more applications and spaces, such as the usual playgrounds, for safety surfacing purposes. At Equestrian Safety Surfacing, we help you determine if this is the material for your space.

Unlike other companies, we don’t like to jump straight in and recommend a material just because it is popular. While you can count on us when having a specific request, we would love it if you allow us to assess and consult you on how some things should be done. This way, you won’t regret the whole installation and can have EPDM rubber where it is properly needed.

Before making the decision and compromising on the whole idea, we recommend being well-informed in all aspects and getting the most out of your time and investment. Hence, feel free to review the option with our members and work around the specific pros and cons of the project.

For it, it is always viable to schedule a consultation and estimate with our members, who will happily work with you and ensure you have all the detailed information. Then focus on design, prep work, and installation so that the entire process is neatly done and short- and long-term results allow for a safe and comfortable surface.

What Is EPDM Rubber in Specific? Its Pros & Cons

EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene monomer, and it is, as mentioned before, a type of synthetic rubber compared to other options.

What differentiates it the most is how chemicals make it and the specific resistance and benefit each one of them offers.

Our company only works with high-quality EPDM rubber, which can be quite difficult to find since the composition of the product varies depending on the manufacturer and company. The percentages range from your usual 45% to 75% in terms of ethylene and how dense and durable the composition is.

Needless to say, the lower the percentage, the worse it is in terms of durability and other results. Therefore, you want a higher percentage that can guarantee most of the benefits and implementation of the rubber as a safety surfacing in the first place.

With this in mind, every surface has its pros and cons, so EPDM rubber isn’t really an exception. As for pros, you have aspects such as:

  • It is very low maintenance since it doesn’t require any extra services or steps. You can have it for over 30 to 50 years installed, even when it isn’t for roofs but rather safety surfacing in playgrounds and other areas.
  • Despite being synthetic, EPDM rubber is eco-friendly since it is made of recycled materials.
  • Repairing it is simple and easy, which allows you to save time and resources in regular replacements or damage overall.
  • You can customize the size and the specific design among the colors and options available.

As for cons, it is more about the installation itself:

  • It is not easy to find good installers.
  • The surface can be a bit more expensive due to its materials and the specific benefits it brings.
  • Aesthetics and designs aren’t that appealing due to the variety there is.
