Recycled tyres are used in some playgrounds to add fun and interest. Where this is considered:

  • Choose tyres that are intact, with no exposed wires.
  • Test, using a white cloth, that the surface will not mark clothing too much.
  • Check fixings regularly if tyres are bolted together.
  • Supervise students carefully, particularly while they are developing the appropriate
    skills and awareness to use the tyres safely.
