CombiTile Exhibits at California Parks & Recreation Society Expo, Long Beach, California

CombiTile, a 100% Australian owned company with its CombiFlex and CombiLock products 100% Australian made, was a well received exhibitor at the CPRS Expo in Long Beach, California March 11-12 2020.

The CPRS Expo is an annual event exhibiting the latest products, systems and management techniques in the California leisure, playground, aquatic, and the parks and recreation industry.

The Expo attracted over 2,000 attendees with a constant flow of visitors to the CombiTile booth.

CombiTile was well represented by George Coon of Aqua Seal and Andre Blaine of Safety4Floors – ably assisted by Cameron Horne and Ken Millard of CombiTile Australia (pictured below).

CombiLock chosen for the 2020 Australian Open - Children's pop-up aquatic play area

CombiTile’s aquatic critical fall height and drainage tile, CombiLock, was chosen for the splash pad play area at the Birrarung Marr site during the Australian Open Tennis in Melbourne in January 2020.

The play area was very popular with the children and no injuries were reported.

This was a pop-up aquatic play area showing CombiLock‘s versatility as an aquatic play area product. The CombiLock product has obtained certification under ASNZ4586:2013 Slip resistance classification – Appendix C Wet-Barefoot Inclining Platform Test.

CombiLock is recyclable, repositionable, contains no VOCs and requires no toxic installation materials or solvents. Water loss through evaporation is minimised due to water travelling beneath the CombiLock tile rather than across the surface.

CombiFlex installation Medowie

Case Study: 3 years on - CombiFlex goes the distance!

The Medowie Macadamia farm in Medowie, NSW has a children’s playground area using CombiFlex critical fall height tiles under synthetic grass.

The CombiFlex and synthetic turf were installed over 3 years ago, and there are no reported injuries to children due to falls in that time. The photographs show no deterioration in the surface of the play area, no changes in the level of synthetic grass surface, no CombiFlex tile relief appearing, and no undulations in the synthetic turf.

A further AS/NZS4685:2014 critical fall height test was conducted in August 2018 with a result of 2.4 metres – no deterioration in the CFH protection.

The site tested was 32mm Synthetic Grass with 10-15mm sand infill over 660gm/msq CombiMesh layer over a standard CombiFlex shock attenuation layer on 80mm of stabilised crushed rock.
