Hubbard Elementary Playground

Noble Public Schools refresh their playzone areas with 3/8″ River Rock.

Metro Materials provides 3 different options for an Impact Resistant Play area surface, all approved by OKDHS. 3/8″ River Rock, also referred to as “Pea Gravel” is great where water retention may be an issue. This material is heavy, durable, and stays in place. If stones are not ideal for your area we also provide Washed Sand and Hardwood Mulch.

Washed Sand is very popular as an economic ground cover and is commonly used in Playgrounds, Volleyball Courts, and for lawn leveling. This material is screened and washed to remove impurities. This process leaves a soft sand, free of clay and clotting materials.

Our most commonly used Playground Material is the IPEMA Certified Hardwood Playground Mulch.

This material is produced with virgin woods, free of any dyes, glues and laminates, and is screened to remove the dust and debris. This process leaves a soft edged mulch perfect for play areas.

For these playground materials along with Topsoil, Grading Dirt, Red Select, Masonry Sand, Driveway Gravel, Recycled Gravel, and Decorative Stone visit us 24/7 at or call our office Monday – Friday at 405-243-DIRT (3478) Monday through Friday.

Rubber Mulch is NOT Safe for Playgrounds in OKC

Recent concerns have risen about the safety of Rubber Mulch being used in Playgrounds across America.

Originally Rubber Mulch was seen as great was to recycle used tires and ease the strain of disposing old rubber. However, until recently Consumer Safety regulations did not closely follow Children’s Play Areas. Now gone are the days of rust old bars and jungle gyms and in comes the modern safety equipment. With these new standards the best types of fall zone material has also been under the microscope. While the initial desire for Rubber Mulch was understandable, some of the side affects are concerning. Children’s hands and clothes will often be stained black after playing in rubber and they have to be monitored closely to assure they so not put the crumb rubber in their mouths. According to the EPA, benzene, mercury, styrene-butadiene, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and arsenic, among several other chemicals, heavy metals and carcinogens have been found in tires. Studies have found that crumb rubber can emit gases that can be inhaled. When the material gets hot, it can increase the chances that volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, and chemicals can “off-gas,” or leach into the air.


Rubber Mulch raises Safety Concerns

“Children go to playgrounds almost daily. That sort of cumulative exposure results in a buildup in their body of these toxic chemicals, and can result in a buildup of cellular damage that’s caused by these chemicals, that can then result in disease years or decades later. Little children should not be put in a situation where they’re forced to be in intimate contact with carcinogenic chemicals,”
Dr. Philip Landrigan, dean of global health at New York’s Mt. Sinai Hospital and a top expert on the effect of chemicals on children.

Playground Mulch requirements in Oklahoma

Impact Resistant Playground Mulch for Child Care Centers, Schools & Churches in Oklahoma.

Every year about 150,000 injuries occur on public playgrounds such as parks, schools, child care centers and restaurants, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Of these playground injuries, nearly 70 percent are related to falls to the surface. Recent studies have also found that about 80 percent of playgrounds have unsuitable surfaces. Thus, a recent focus by DHS to improve the safety of Oklahoma Play Zones has prompted a high demand for Impact Resistant Playground Material.

What is the most economical solution for Playgrounds?

While there is no perfect solution for fall surfaces, safety experts recommend the use of loose fill material or synthetic surface materials. Synthetic surfaces,  rubber tiles or rubber mulch, can cost over 10x the amount of a loose fill material like Hardwood Mulch. Our Premium Hardwood Mulch meets the American Society for Testing & Materials (ATSM) standards,  CPSC guidelines and is proven to be an economical and long lasting solution in the Oklahoma Climate.

How much Playground Mulch does Oklahoma DHS require for a public play area?

Depending on the height of equipment, DHS will require between 6 to 12 inches of loose fill material. For equipment 4 feet tall, a 6 inch base is required, and up to 12 inches is required for areas with playground equipment 8 feet in height.

Where is Playground Mulch required?

Playground Mulch should be placed in all playground fall zones, under and around playground equipment where children many fall. In general DHS likes a minimum of 6 feet from the edge in all directions around the playground equipment. This calculation may vary due to the possible momentum of children playing on swings & slides. The area of fall material for slides is 4 feet more than the height of the slide. For example, a 6′ slide will require 10′ of surface material beyond the exit of the slide. the maximum amount fall surfacing required at the end of any slide is 14′. Fall zones for swings is twice the height of the hanger, so a 10′ tall swing needs 20′ of fall zone material in front & back. Surfacing should also extend 6′ on each side.
