Surface Designs supplied Rosehill TPV rubber granules for the rubber wetpour at the Blaxland Riverside Park in Sydney. Over 1500m² of Rosehill TPV were installed in two stages with the park officially opening on the 1st of June 2012. Even after four years, the rubber surfaces continue to perform, both in resistance to colour fading and the tactile integrity of the surface.
A unique product in rubber wetpour solutions, Rosehill TPV consists of virgin rubber granules that are not porous and, therefore, don’t absorb the polyurethane binder used in the wetpour process. Consequently, the surface stays soft and continues to perform as intended rather than hardening over time. Regular upkeep of the rubber surface through a scheduled maintenance program will ensure years of service.
One of a number of parks that make up the Sydney Olympic Parklands, the Blaxland Riverside Park has been beautifully designed to enable children to have a variety of exciting and imaginative play experiences, while also encouraging adults to visit and enjoy the park in families and groups.
Located on the shores of Parramatta River and spread over three hectares, the park provides a colourful combination of play elements that includes high and steep landforms, water and sand, moving elements, nets, slides, tunnels and hidden spaces.
Rosehill TPV has been used globally for several years across several prestigious projects such as the London Olympic Stadium Circle Bridge, Disney, Sea World and Universal Studios.
Surface Designs is a wholesaler of rubber safety surfacing for indoor and outdoor sports and play surfaces. The company is also the sole distributor of Rosehill TPV rubber granules in Australia and New Zealand.
