Rubber surfacing for agility 

To potential customers and those waiting for orders:

Due to the COVID-19 virus, extra precautions are being taken here at the workplace. I am in a building with 26 units of varied work practices. Rubber on the Run will be closed until it's safe for businesses to return. 

The Governor of MI ordered the closing of all non-essential businesses until May 28.
I am coming into work occasionally since I work on my own (with the help of 2 dogs, of course!) and there is
no public access here. If things go well, I will begin working on orders again May 28. 

I will post updates here as things change over time. Please check back regularly for updated news.

Stay aware and healthy-

What we offer:

obstacles, and more!

rubberized panels

The same thin rubber formulas developed by Rubber on the Run for the ready made skins is directly applied to a 3mm aluminum composite panel. For use with any seesaw or dogwalk framework 12" wide, or aframes 36" wide x 9'. Screws are included, painted to match the color of the rubber. Many extra benefits included with this surfacing system!


The proper way to rubberize agility equipment

     Combining the two ingredients used-rubber granules and binder- is very basic. Whether it's installing running tracks, kids playgrounds, pool surrounds, or rubberizing the surface of agility obstacles, the technique is the same. According to industry standards, the binder is used per weight of the rubber granules, mixed thoroughly, spread, smoothed, and left to cure.  As the company that brought a permanent cushioned rubber surface (terming the word "skins" as the thinner layer) for obstacles to the sport of agility ten years ago, Rubber on the Run continues to be in the forefront of highest quality and best prices.

     We use color impregnated virgin rubber imported from the UK by American Recycling Center. It is a TPV rubber (high quality virgin polymer), not an EPDM rubber that is sulphur cured or a recycled rubber that is painted. The binders from American Recycling are formulas custom made by Dow Chemical- the best quality binder available. When shopping for a rubber surface for agility equipment (aframe, dogwalk, seesaw, tabletop), know the quality of the materials a company uses. Then find out how a company makes their surfacing- industry standards, or their own variation? With normal care, a rubber surface like Rubber on the Run manufactures will last AT LEAST 10 years. There is a big difference of surfaces out there- know what one you're getting!

pre-made rubber skins

We make the skins for you, ready to glue on your agility obstacle. The contact zones are attached to the color section, so each skin is a complete piece. This rubber skin can be applied on wood, aluminum, and Fiberglas surfaces using the proper adhesive.  Gluing instructions are included.
