Features & Benefits
Gecko Safety Logs are extremely durable and do not break down or splinter like treated pine logs. Quick and easy to install Gecko’s Rubber Safety Logs eliminate sharp corners associated with other forms of garden edging making mowing a breeze and maximizing safety. Their unique Rubber composition allows for ‘flex’ in the log structure allowing for some movement if required during the installation process. Logs can then be fixed in place to eliminate further movement.
These Rubber Logs are perfect for retaining mulch, sand or stones and our recessed logs are suitable for use when installing synthetic grass, shock pads or pavers.
Applications include garden edging, playground edging, plinth and court edging.
Colours: Available in Black
Length: 1380mm | Width: 120mm | Height: 200mm
“The ideal edging for any playground or garden surround which has fantastic safety properties and durability”

PU-Sport® Indoor Court Surfacing
Gecko PU-SPORT® Surfacing System creates an attractive, durable and forgiving surface suitable for a wide range of indoor sport applications. Gecko’s Polyurethane flooring system is imported from Europe using the highest grade materials which ensures excellent durability and maximum slip resistance.
The greatest benefit of PU-SPORT® surfacing is the shock absorbing characteristics in comparison to other surfaces. Timber floors generally don’t offer the same protection for younger and lighter weight children when jarring and stress on joints can lead to potential injuries.
Suitable for sports halls, gymnasiums, gymnastics, aerobics areas and indoor basketball courts, Gecko PU-SPORT® provides excellent cushioning and slip resistance which dramatically reduces the chance of injury to players.
“The sports flooring system which reduces stress on joints
and limbs and provides a colourful & bright surface area for play”
This seamless, one piece court system provides optimal ball bounce, excellent wear properties and an easy to clean and maintain surface. Available in a wide range of colours – even your club or school logo, Gecko PU-SPORT® surfacing is the obvious choice for a premium look and maximum safety.
Both the cost of installation as well as the cost of maintenance in recoating timber flooring is far greater than Gecko PU-SPORT®. The original investment in timber flooring is around $200 per sqm, almost twice the price of PU-SPORT®. Annual maintenance costs associated with recoating and regular polishing can be about $10,000 per court. PU-SPORT® virtually eliminates these ongoing costs.
Colours: Wide range of colours.
Thickness: 5mm + 2mm through to 14mm + 3mm
Certifications: EN14904, DIN 18032-2 & ISO 9001

Drainage & Surface Stablisation
The Gecko-Ground Cell® reinforcement structure creates an attractive, durable hard surface suitable for parking areas, driveways and access roads. This enables ‘year round’ use of areas that have previously been inaccessible due to high moisture levels and prevents ‘bog holes’ from forming and creating a muddy mess. The unique properties of the Gecko-Ground Cell® structure provides surface stability with the added benefit of being able to back fill it or cover it with suitable permeable materials such as crushed rock, synthetic grass or even soil in order to re-grow natural turf. The load bearing capacity of the Gecko-Ground Cell® is impressive with a capability of 225t/m2.
“Up to your ears in mud? Gecko can assist!“
The Gecko-Ground Cell® is exceptionally cost effective particularly when compared with the alternatives of concrete and asphalt. The sub-base required for cells is equal to or less than the sub-base required for concrete or bitumen. The elimination of the traditional storm water system required by impermeable car park installations provides an immediate cost saving when installing Ground Cell reinforcement structure for the same application.
Crush Strength: 225 t/m2
“The surface reinforcement structure that turns bogs holes into fully functional areas whilst providing a stable level surface which requires extremely little maintenance”
The Gecko Drainage Cell® interlocking module removes excess water ensuring areas that are normally not accessible during wet seasons remain fully functional. Ideal for ground stabilization & sub-surface drainage in areas prone to water logging. The cells retain a small amount of moisture which promotes natural growth of grass and when used in conjunction with synthetic grass it assists in cooling. Driving vehicles onto the cells has no effect on the surface as they have a load bearing in excess of 100t/m2.
The use of Gecko Drainage Cell® as an effective drainage medium provides the facility manager with a asset which can be used 365 days per annum. The elimination of the traditional storm water drainage system saves downtime costs to the facility owner and ensures the sporting community maximizes their participation and in turn providing an overall healthy lifestyle.
Crush Strength: 100 t/m2

Swing and Slide Mats
The one piece units are easy to handle and install and the colourful speckled finish looks great all year round. The durable surface withstands daily abuse and requires no ongoing maintenance.
“Do your public playground swings meet the Australian Standards for Critical Fall Heights?”
Playground Safety Mats
Playground safety mats are ideal for underneath mult playground equipment, double swings and at the base of slides, where impact by children is most likely. Its unique rubber compound allows a cushion type impact to ensure maximum safety. Safety mats offer tremendous flexibility as they are modular pieces that can be laid to almost any size and come in a range of colours including: Terracotta, Grey, Botanic Green and Black with a speckled colour throughout.
This product can be incorporated into Gecko’s Soft Fall Playground System™
Being manufactured from recycled tyre rubber, the Rubber Swing Mat is a “Green” product and reduces the carbon foot-print.
The installation of the playground mat is very simple. It can be laid on a concrete base or supplied with our optional prefabricated frame.
Rubber Wet Pour – Playground System
“Gecko’s Rubber Wet Pour System … dramatically reduces the risk of litigation from playground injuries”
Wet Pour Soft Fall has minimal seams or joins and is incredibly flexible. It can be very colourful with the option to dye sections in bright fun colours to make your favourite patterns and games or even your organisation’s colours. Wet pour is constructed from millions of rubber fibres which provides a cushion like feel underfoot.
Suitable for Schools, Shire Councils and Early Learning Centres, the Gecko Rubber Wet Pour System provides a bright, attractive and fun play area that meets all the Critical Fall Height requirements of the Australian Standard.
Being made from recycled tyres, Gecko’s Wet Pour or Shock Pads are “Green” products which assist in reducing your carbon foot-print. All Gecko Wet Pour projects are guaranteed so you can be sure of it’s quality and durability.
Critical Fall Height…
Studies indicate that many playgrounds throughout Australia DON’T comply with the Australian Standard AS/NZS4422:1996. Effectively, this leaves the responsible bodies open to litigation in the event of injury or death resulting from children falling from equipment. Be sure that you don’t leave your door open to this type of costly and avoidable legal claims – install a Gecko Wet Pour System at your facility.
Long Term Cost Effectiveness
As Rubber Soft Fall is incredibly long lasting, the cost efficiency of this product should be weighed up against refills of alternative materials such as bark chips and the general ongoing maintenance of these options.
There’s also the issue of legal claims being made for unsafe grounds. Over the past decade this stands at over $20,000,000.
