Technology for safety
SBR is a synthetic rubber with comparable elasticity to natural rubber but with higher abrasion resistance and less sensitivity to temperature fluctuations and other atmospheric conditions such as rain or frost.
Due to its absorption properties, SBR substrates are used wherever there is an increased risk of injury. They are very good on playgrounds, outdoor sports facilities, gyms, jogging paths or nursing homes. They are also successfully used on terraces, balconies and patios.
The SBR Flexizone panels is an economical, secure and durable solution. They are used extensively for smaller playgrounds and terraces, as well as for large areas of public and private spaces such as kindergartens, schools, or playgrounds.
Fun without any worries. Sports and leisure without any injury
Why use SBR Flexizone panels?
- A flexible and stable surface minimizes the risk of injuries, bumps and hits caused by falls.
- The special drainage system accelerates drying of material and prevents the formation of puddles.
- The slightly porous structure provides a non-slip surface.
- The soft surface of the panels is pleasant to the touch and easy to use on bare feet.
- The SBR copolymer is easy to keep clean – water and possibly a mild detergent or a pressure cleaner is enough.
- They are resistant to abrasion, tear and temperature fluctuations in the range from – 30°C up to 70°C.
- They retain structural integrity and do not undergo permanent deformation under standard loads.
Safe panels for a wide range of applications
Due to the size and precision of individual elements, SBR panels are recommended for large areas, trouble-free and quick assembly.
BR Flexizone safety and quality is certified by certificates. Vibrant colours and material pleasant to the touch are conducive to a carefree play.
Shock absorption properties and the anti-slip surface minimize the risk of injury. High sound absorption reduces noise.
PUBLIC USE FACILITIES
Easy assembly and possibility to replace individual components. Resistance to mechanical damage and low sensitivity to temperature fluctuations.
BACKYARDS AND PATIO
Vibro-insulation and soundproof properties are good for resting, and so is the surface pleasant to bare feet.
Two dimensions and two assembly methods
SBR Flexizone panels are manufactured in two standard sizes and as many as eight thickness variants, which should always be matched to the required HIC value.
They can be laid as a standard – in an adjacent system or alternately. 16 carbon pin pockets ensure tight panel joining and eliminate edge curling.
It is very important to properly prepare the substrate under the panel. It should be even and stable. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with a specially prepared instructional video here.

SBR panels are very easy to assemble. They can be joined traditionally or alternately. Both ways guarantee stability and durability.
If required, e.g. manufacturer of playground equipment requires a substrate with different HIC (Critical Fall Height) parameters, SBR Flexizone panels of different thicknesses can be joined. Custom panels are made so that the pins are at the same level.
The SBR Flexizone substrate stability is provided by four pins attached to each panel edge, resulting in stiffening of joints and protection against formation of crevices. In addition, the underside of our panels has a chocolate-like structure, which increases the weight of the panel and provides better adhesion to the substrate.
Thanks to the water permeability of the material and special linear drainage, water will run free in the direction of the slope of the substructure and does not stay on the surface of the panel.
Apart from the elastic and anti-slip surface that reduces the risk of injuries, the SBR peripheral panels have sloping edges that facilitate smooth transition between different surfaces and prevent slipping.
Together with the SBR Flexizone panels we also offer accessories for floor finishes, such as elastic verges that act as a curb and ramps that can be joined to other surfaces. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the offer of Flexizone finishing accessories.
Basic certificates that products of this type should have are the HIC certificate of safe fall as well as the PZH certificate. The law also requires meeting EU standard PN-EN 1177.
The panels can be stacked on stone, concrete or asphalt foundations. If you do not have a prepared foundation, first dig the area where the surface will be laid, then place the verges, and put the appropriate amount of stone or pour concrete. Only then the panels can be laid on the prepared serface. Detailed instructions are provided via e-mail.
SBR Flexizone assembly is simple enough that you can do it yourself. It is facilitated by evenly positioned pins and straight edges of the panels.
With a standard playground there is an average of 8-12 meters per hour with two or three workers. The time may be extended if it is necessary to cut individual panels.
The panels should be washed twice a year. It is best to use a pressure washer with a rotary tip for cleaning substrates. If you do not have such a tip, you can use a standard washer, but keep the appropriate distance. A high pressure from a close range can damage the panel.
The panels can be cut with a jigsaw (with a metal knife), a saber saw (with a metal knife), or a saw blade. Do not use high-speed devices, such as angle grinders, for cutting because they cause the rubber to melt.
It is possible to join SBR panels with EPDM. This is often the case when you want to use the colours of two colour pallets. Economic SBR panels are frequently joined with colourful EPDM panels because of their attractive price.
