Wet Pour

Wetpour is a rubber flooring surface, most commonly used in nursery and school playgrounds, alongside parks and recreational areas. Often referred to as ‘rubber tarmac’ or ‘soft tarmac’, the surface is made up of two layers including a base shock pad and a coloured top which significantly reduces the risk of injury, and also provides a safe area of play for activities all year round.

What is a Wetpour Surface?

As specialist installers of rubber safety surfacing in the UK, we can offer a wide range of wetpour services to schools, nurseries, public parks and play areas to ensure that any children using the facility are fully protected against injuries.

One of the main wetpour services we carry out is the full installation of rubber safety flooring to playgrounds in a variety of bright colours and designs. All of the rubber surfaces that we install have been specially tested to BS EN 1177 standards for safety and Critical Fall Height ratings to use with various playground equipment including swings and climbing frames.

Wetpour surfacing is becoming increasingly popular for schools and nurseries where young people will be playing. The surface can be installed in a number of different depths to meet certain requirements. We can also install play graphics on the areas to create fun, educational games for the children to play on.

When the shock pad installation is complete, the next step of the wet pour specification is to install the wearing course. This is commonly 1-4mm EPDM rubber that we mix with the polyurethane resin and pour onto the shock pad.

Case Study

At a school in Norfolk we were asked to provide a safety surface at this pre-school because young children were going to be using this facility. They wanted a surface which was eye-catching but also safe; this is why they decided to go for blue EPDM rubber. The video below shows the installation of our surfacing:
