Safety Surfaces for Playgrounds

These play area safety surfaces consists of two elements, the first is a 100% recycled SBR ( Styrene Butadiene Rubber ), as a base on children’s play areas with a top coat or wearing coarse of EPDM rubber crumb. This can be installed outside in school playgrounds, as well as being used indoors as an artificial surface.

Wetpour Safety Surfaces

The depth of both the base coarse rubber (SBR) and the top coat of EPDM can be altered to meet the critical fall height (CFH) of the children’s play equipment installed to outdoor play surfaces as well as an indoor artificial surface. The granules of the rubber safety surfaces are held together by a resin to give a resin bonded surfacing. The flooring is ideal for school play areas with or without school playground equipment. The wetpour rubber should be laid onto a porous base as the wetpour itself is porous and allows for water drainage from the children’s play surface.

The wetpour soft play area is hard wearing and should last for years but if over the years it becomes damaged there are wet pour repair kits that are available. These are mainly used to cover a small area of the safety surfacing, these are also made from the same EPDM that has been installed previously to the children’s play area, the wet pour is mixed with the resin to give the same resin bound surface as the original wet pour as the school playground. Children’s play surfaces as well as Nursery play areas can come with all types of outdoor play equipment but the soft play surfacing is ideal for areas with or without children’s play equipment.

Alternative Play Area Surfaces

There are other types of surfaces that can be used in school playgrounds and nursery play areas, such as synthetic grass, rubber mulch, rubber bark, mats and matting. All have their uses, but the wet pour / safety surface is probably the most popular. With our graphics play ground designs are easy to incorporate in soft play areas, the graphics are laser cut from sheets of EPDM so that they are consistent to photos in our graphics catalogue. These are laid onto the 100% recycled SBR and the top coat of wet pour is laid around them to give a perfect finish to the playing area wet pour surface.

After years of use the cheapest way to regenerate the wet pour safety surfacing would be for an overlay / recap to the area in a top coat soft pour surface this can be in colour EPDM or Black EPDM. To brighten up the area the use of wet pour graphics can be used on the children’s play area giving extra years of life to the children to enjoy outdoor play equipment or just the wet pour play area safely.

There are all types of Play equipment that can be used for the children’s playground, benches can be put around the play areas for the leisure of the children, slides and swings but it should always be remembered that the critical fall height ( CFH ) must be correct around all the playground equipment in the soft play areas. Safety is paramount and we think that all wetpour soft surfacing should be correctly laid at the correct depth in all children’s play areas and nursery play areas.
