Development

Customers told us they wanted the guaranteed consistency offered by factory pre-fabricated Aero surfacing systems and a basic colour range to minimise costs. The A1 Development team accepted the challenge and went to work to devise an even more affordable coloured rubber safety surface.

 
Materials

Aero SuperSaver is a trafficable, recycled rubber surface with bright coloured EPDM speckles and synthetic oxide base colours. The medium density compound of polymetrically bound rubber crumb provides a soft, resilient, non-slip surface designed to maximise underfoot comfort and stability. As with other Aero surfacing systems, SuperSavers are prefabricated in the factory, to ensure density and thickness are maintained across all parts of the rubber surface. This is every customer’s guarantee of consistent performance and enables meaningful fall height ratings and certification to be given on the installed product

 
Product Safety

In line with industry practice, MDI polyurethene binders are used in all Aero products.  As a pre-fabricated surfacing system the binder in Aero rubber has fully cured before installation commences.  This minimises health and safety risks to installers, staff and children, and eliminates the need for protective measures as recommended by polyurethene manufacturers when the binder is in its volatile form, as is the case with wetpour rubber surfaces.

 
Applications

Aero SuperSavers are ideal for use as playground rubber safety surfaces. In  conjunction with Aero Shock pads, their scalability  means just about any fall height requirement can be catered for. SuperSavers are also a fantastic option for worn grass, and paved & concrete surfaces where vigorous play and the occasional tumble might be expected, such as portable equipment areas, bike paths and school courtyards. Other products in the Aero range have been designed for use in gyms, weights rooms, golfing & pedestrian thoroughfares and equestrian centres.

 
Installation

SuperSavers are installed in an attractive ‘brick-bond’ pattern and all seams are sealed and bonded with a flexible, tough, abrasion-resistant, polyurethane construction adhesive.  Each seam acts as an expansion/contraction joint, meaning SuperSavers cope better with temperature induced movement than traditional rubber wetpour systems.  Extra advantages include the ability to install in very hot or cold conditions without a deterioration in consistency or quality and the potential to use the surface within hours of being laid.

SuperSavers cater for fall heights from 0.5 metres up to 6 metres when laid over standard Aero Shockpads.  Their versatility means installation is possible in existing excavated bark areas, within grass areas, or on  concrete, bitumen or paved surfaces.   Our expert trained staff can assist by carrying out excavation and/or base preparation work or by providing advice to others. 

 
Performance

Aero SuperSavers represent the next step in the evolution of rubber safety surfaces. The combination of factory pre-fabrication and strict quality control to ISO 9001 means customers can be assured the product will perform as intended after installation and will avoid the problems with inconsistency and surface deterioration that have occurred with traditional wetpour and loose laid tile systems.  Regulation of rubber thickness and density allows clients to accurately translate fall-height requirements into rubber surface thickness, eliminating the need for costly supervision during installation to ensure rubber thickness and consistency is maintained.

 
Versatility

Aero SuperSavers are compatible with Aero Cool technology, enabling bright colours and designs to be added to the surface after initial installation and as budgets allow.  The unique seam joining system enables extensions and repairs to SuperSaver surfaces to be carried out quickly, neatly and without adversely affecting the integrity of the product. Aero Super Savers can be used to cover sloping surfaces to provide a non-slip safety surface as illustrated.

 
Compliance

The Aero SuperSaver surface conforms to Australian Standard AS/NZS 4422:1996.  The product has undergone extensive independent laboratory and in-field testing, with results showing consistent, predictable performance on fall heights to 3 metres and beyond on both the body and seams of the product.

 
Warranty
The manufacturer warrants to the owner that the Aero protective surface will be free from manufacturing defects for a period of 3 years from the date of installation in accordance with the manufacturer’s installation specifications and when used for the purposed intended. Installation is warranted for 12 months.
