What Houzz contributors are saying:
Both natural and synthetic rubber products can be recycled to form new products or to repair damaged ones. Luckily, recycling rubber uses far less energy than producing new rubber, reducing the demand for new product and preventing rubber tree plantations from expanding into sensitive ecosystems.
"I climb myself and set up the holds to be very kid easy," Haugeland notes. "They are really easy to move around if they ever want to change them up." The flooring here is made of recycled rubber tires. Its thickness and the rubber feet beneath each tile create a soft landing.
9. Wrap a climbing wall. I know you Houzzers are concerned about safety, especially when it comes to your kids. A local climbing gym composed this wall’s setup, the height limited potential falls, and the surface underneath is rubber. Learn more about home climbing walls
"We suggested a climbing wall as an option, as we have avid climbers in the office and the client requested play options for their active girls," says Jamie Morf of Shades of Green Landscape Architecture. "We contacted a local climbing gym for help with the layout and choice of climbing holds and gave them the parameters of the ages of the girls and the space available."As for safety, "the fall height was limited by the height of the wall, and rubberized safety surface tiles of the appropriate thickness for the fall height were used near the wall," she says. "The holds are placed such that it is more of a horizontal traverse than a vertical climb, so the children are never more than several feet off the ground."
