Wet Pour surfacing for children’s playgrounds is slip-resistant and non-abrasive making it ideal for younger children too. It is porous and free draining so puddles do not form providing a safe all-weather surface. In winter a very light dressing of salt can be applied in frosty conditions but any residue must be removed on a daily basis to avoid surface staining.
Bright colourful graphics can be created within the Wet Pour rubber surfacing to provide an attractive theme which will add considerable play value and interest to the playground. Games can also be added such as snakes and ladders, hopscotch, labyrinths and alphabet snakes.
Wet Pour rubber surfacing system is designed to be laid onto the following bases –
- MOT Type 1 stone laid to a minimum compacted thickness of 75mm
- Open-textured bitmac or no-fines concrete or incorporating drainage.
- Existing tarmac or concrete, subject to being in good condition
- All bases will require a perimeter edging of either 50mm x 150mm pre cast concrete path edgings or pressure treated timber with a minimum thickness of 50mm.
Wet Pour rubber safety surfacing is recycled bonded rubber, mixed on site using special equipment and laid to exacting standards as required under EN1177. The base layer of SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber) is laid at various thicknesses to obtain the critical fall height required. A top layer is recycled Black EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Di Monomer) is then applied to the base rubber to form a wearing course as standard where no colour is specified. Virgin rubber can be supplied if requested.
All of our professional teams are CSCS (construction skills certification scheme) card holders with many years’ experience installing resin bound systems.
