The History of Rubaroc-Rubber Safety Surfacing

Poured-in-place Rubber Safety Surfacing originated over seventy years ago in France and Germany, where it was developed for athletic and equestrian markets. Almost thirty years ago and through a twist of fate, Barry Meakings became involved in Rubber Safety Surfacing through his families long association in the Concrete Floor Repair Industry. Barry discovered the product while on a business trip to Paris, France, from where he obtained samples and information to bring back to his home in Dallas Texas.

Barry’s work and tenacious commitment to developing a company dedicated to Concrete Floor repair and Safety Surfacing products eventually became known as Rubaroc™ International Incorporated. Over the years the formula has improved and after numerous residential and commercial projects, Rubaroc™ has developed into the product that is used today. It has been installed in may countries worldwide including the United States, Canada, Bahamas, Barbados, Spain, the United Kingdom, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Australia. Clients include luxury hotels and resorts, championship golf courses, prestigious sports and heath spas.

Currently Rubaroc™ International Inc. has dealers situated in the United States, Canada, Bahamas, Barbados, Spain, the United Kingdom and Australia. Barry originally innovated the poured-in-place Rubber Safety Surfacing for the repair of pool decks, but today through a growing network of company trained dealers, you will find it being used in a wide variety of applications from water parks to playgrounds, schools, childcare facilities, golf clubs and hotels, private and public housing associations and many more. In fact you may be standing on it right now.

It is skid-resistant when wet, much like your bath mat, which makes rubber safety surfacing perfect for wet deck applications. Remarkably, It stretches to accommodate most substrate cracks caused by ground movement. The rubber safety surfacing also expands and contracts with temperature changes. It adheres directly to any solid substrate material including concrete, asphalt, epoxy stone, brick, wood, steel, tarmac, chipboard and aluminum. Surface blemishes are easily filled and eliminated without jackhammers or other bothersome equipment. It is stain resistant and cleans with normal soap and water. Should the occasion become necessary, repairs to a Rubaroc applied rubber safety surface are easily accomplished by an installation specialist.
