Recreational Surfacing

SpectraTop recreational surfacing is comprised of the half-inch “top layer only” found on our SpectraPour and other 2-layer poured systems. SpectraTop is ideal for athletic use, workout and fitness areas, walking tracks, tricycle tracks, field events, small jogging tracks and other applications not requiring a cushion layer.

SpectraTop is mixed on-site, and may be used to provide ADA access to existing playgrounds. It may also be used to re-top existing poured-in-place play systems requiring a new top layer.

NOTE: As SpectraTop does not have a cushion layer, it cannot be used directly as a fall protection system. In these areas, refer to one of our SpectraPour systems, which have shock-absorbing layers designed for impact attenuation.

Warning: Like so many surfaces – including asphalt, sand, metal and plastic, all of which can be found on playground environments – rubber surfaces will get hot when exposed to direct sunlight. SpectraTurf strongly recommends that children wear shoes when playing or walking on any rubber surface, regardless of the manufacturer or specific type of surface.
