WHAT MAKES PROPATH SUITABLE FOR A GOLF COURSE APPLICATION?

ProPath transforms uneven pathways into smooth walkways that are less hazardous and more pleasing to the eye.

HOW WILL HEAVY FOOT TRAFFIC AND SPIKED GOLF SHOES AFFECT PROPATH?

ProPath is a resilient, non-skid, surface that is virtually indestructible. The specially formulated and tested resin provides a strong bond to the rubber to resist spikes. ProPath creates a comfortable, durable surface, and will decrease noise of foot traffic.

HOW IS RUBAROC SURFACING INSTALLED?

Certified, trained installers apply Rubaroc . There are usually two installers and one mixer on site depending on the size of the installation. The rubber granules arrive in bags and the resin in buckets. It is then mixed and trowelled on site to the specifications of the client.

WILL A PROPATH INSTALLATION DISRUPT THE EXISTING LANDSCAPE AND SURROUNDING AREAS?

ProPath is professionally installed directly over the existing surface.  Surface blemishes are easily filled and eliminated without jackhammers or other bothersome equipment.

HOW SOON CAN PROPATH BE UTILIZED AFTER INSTALLATION?

ProPath is usable after a 24 hour drying period, in most conditions.

HOW THICK IS THIS PRODUCT APPLIED TO CONCRETE? WILL IT STICK TO CONCRETE THAT HAD SEALER APPLIED?

Rubaroc is applied at a quarter inch thick. It will stick to most types of sealer such as epoxy and acrylic because our primer coat will make it re-activate and bond to the material.

WHAT KINDS OF SUBSTRATE DOES PROPATH ADHERE TO?

ProPath adheres to wood, concrete, tarmac, asphalt, aluminum, and steel and can also be installed over steps and stairs.

IS THE RUBBER SURFACING SLIPPERY WHEN WET?

Rubaroc is non-slip even when wet, just the same as the theory behind the rubber bath mat.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE WATER THAT DRAINS THROUGH?

The water filters through to the sub-base and whatever direction it is sloped, the water will drain that way.

DOES RUBAROC GET HOT IN THE HEAT?

It is cooler than concrete and tarmac in the heat of summer because the pores trap moisture and create airflow that helps retain its low surface temperature. Because of the nature of rubber it does not absorb heat or cold like cement or rock products do.

HOW WILL WINTER AFFECT RUBAROC SURFACING?

Rubaroc systems have been proven to cope with the harshest environment including the scorching deserts of Arizona and the harsh winters of Canada.

WILL RUBAROC DELAMINATE IN THE FREEZE/THAW CYCLE?

Rubaroc rubber safety surfacing systems have been designed and thoroughly tested to remain stable in all weather conditions.

WHAT SUB-BASE DOES RUBAROC COVER?

Rubaroc can be installed on most solid substrates such as concrete, tarmac, wood, aluminum and steel. It can also be installed on compacted crushed stone for creating Rubaroc swimming pool decks.

CAN RUBAROC BE USED BOTH INDOORS AND OUTDOORS?

Rubaroc rubber safety surfacing is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

HOW DO I CLEAN RUBAROC SURFACING?

Rubber safety surfaces require regular cleaning. Pressure washing is the most commonly used procedure for cleaning rubber surfaces. Sometimes mild soap and water sprayed with the garden hose is all that is necessary. For stubborn stains, Rubaroc offers a product called RubaClean of which you can ask your distributor or installer for cleaning instructions.

HOW DOES RUBAROC GET CLEANED WHEN APPLIED INDOORS?

This depends on the system. If it is our sealed system for food prep and organic materials areas you can use any type of conventional mop to clean the surface. With our porous surface for entry ways and locker rooms etc a steam cleaner is recommended.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE RUBBER SURFACE NEEDS REPAIR?

Because Rubaroc is a rubber-based material, cutting out the damaged area and re-pouring the safety rubber and resin mixture will make repairs to your surface easy, un-noticeable and aesthetically pleasing. A certified rubber safety surface installer usually performs this function. Repairs are un-noticeable with Rubaroc and the new material blends in with the original surface.

WHAT IS THE WARRANTY PERIOD?

Rubaroc Dealers offer a limited warranty on the product and installation, is up to them to specify the amount of time the installation/product is warranted till.

CAN YOU INSTALL IT YOURSELF?

Rubaroc is not a DIY product as it is fairly systematic. However, if you decide to become an Authorized Rubaroc Dealer, we have extremely comprehensive training on the installation of the product.
