American Rubber Surfacing (ARS) is a leader in the playground surfacing industry with over 20 years of experience in design, installation and repair.
ARS products are manufactured by Hesscor, Inc. and installed directly from our factory using established field techniques developed through years of experience in all phases of playground construction and safety.
Our NPSI certified professionals are involved in all aspects of the construction process to ensure projects comply with all Americans with Disability Act (ADA) and ASTM F-1292 and F-1487 requirements.
Our proven manufacturing techniques, quality control and certified installers all played a critical role in our IPEMA certification. All materials used are continually weighed and measured, assuring a constant level of quality throughout the project.
ARS offers three types of superior play surfaces: EPDM, TPV and AmeriGrass. All 3 surfaces provide exceptional safety benefits and excellent durability. We use the highest quality materials available to provide the most durable surfacing product on the market by using only ISO 9001:2008 suppliers. ARS products have been through a vigorous series of testing and compliance procedures to verify that they meet ASTM guideline F-1292.

When you want bright and durable colors for playgrounds, parks, schools, splash pads or play areas, TPV is a good choice. It’s also compatible with EPDM rubber, making it a very versatile solution for your next surfacing project. For more information and a color chart of TPV colors: READ MORE
When you want the look of grass or turf without the instability and costly maintenance of natural surfaces, AmeriGrass should be a consideration.
