frequently asked questions

What is Genesis Base Mat?

Genesis Base Mat is a unique playground surfacing system that combines a highly engineered cushion layer of vulcanized hollow cone tiles with high quality artificial turf.

How is Gensis Base Mat different than other turf systems?

Most turf systems utilize a low density recycled foam base similar to carpet underlay to provide fall protection. Genesis Base Mat employs a high density, highly engineered vulcanized rubber tile system that is far more durable and capable of vastly superior safety ratings. Interlocking tiles are installed with a rubber inll followed by the installation of the artificial turf which is carried out using the same process as traditional turf installations.

How is the system installed?

Genesis Base Mat can be installed over concrete, asphalt or a compacted aggregate sub-surface. Interlocking tiles are installed with a rubber infill followed by the installation of the artificial turf which is carried out using the same process as traditional turf installations.

Why should I consider using Genesis Base Mat?

Unlike other turf systems, Genesis provides far superior safety ratings. Our base mat system provides HIC ratings between 200 and 300 at 8 feet and complies with ASTM F1292 up to 12 feet. Additionally our impact absorbing layer is interlocking, provides rapid drainage and will not break down.

How does pricing compare to other turf systems?

Since all of the components of our Genesis Base Mat cushion system are made in-house, we are able to provide a very high quality system at a price point that is generally lower than other systems.
