GENAN RUBBER PELLETS

Genan now launches a brand new and ground-breaking product – the GENAN SAFE rubber pellets.
Pellets are manufactured through a patent pending, mechanical process and are uniform and size-specific.
GENAN pellets are ideal for playground base layers, offering numerous advantages:

High performance | Low bulk density | Excellent HIC values
Easy on-site installation | Custom-sizing possible | Less rubber and binder needed

HIGH PERFORMANCE - LOW BULK DENSITY

The GENAN SAFE pellets are made from Genan rubber powder from end-of-life tyres.
Pellets are a most homogeneous product – manufactured with a specific diameter and cut off to a specific length.
Standard diameter is Ø4.2 mm in lengths 5 and 10 mm; yet, custom-sizing is possible.

When pellets are laid out, cavities inevitably arise, creating the optimum conditions for the elastic properties and the energy absorption of the rubber pellets. As GENAN SAFE pellets are so uniform in shape, they have less surface area than traditional granulate. This results in low end-product bulk density, improved elasticity and minimum compaction.

Compared to traditional base layers made with granulate, base layers made with GENAN SAFE pellets require less material. Material savings may be up to 30% – for rubber as well as binder.

EXCELLENT HIC VALUES

Paramount for playground surfaces is of course that children playing are as safe as possible. Especially from high fall heights, the performance of base layers are put to the test.

When testing playground surfaces constructed for an approved fall height of 3 m, surfaces with base layers made with GENAN SAFE pellets boast remarkably better HIC results than surfaces with base layers made with traditional granulate. Even from a drop height of 4 m, HIC values for base layers with GENAN SAFE pellets are below the limit of 1,000.

These results are indeed no less than excellent – and revolutionary for playground surfacing.

EASY ON-SITE INSTALLATION

For installers, GENAN SAFE pellets are:

• easily mixed with polyurethane binder
• easily layed – with minimum compaction
• easily spread – manually as well as with a paver

GENAN SAFE PELLETS FOR PLAYGROUND BASE LAYERS

GENAN SAFE pellets can be cut to any length; yet, initial field and laboratory testing shows particularly good results with pellets 5 or 10 mm long.
