Wetpour Installation in Helensburgh, Argyll and Bute

Soft Surfaces have many years experience installing wetpour safety surfaces across the UK. We can install various different colours and depths depending on the play equipment and sub base.

Wet Pour Playground Surfacing

The video below shows the installation of a wet pour playground surface installation in Argyll and Bute in Scotland.

Please see video transcript below:


00:06 Hi guys, it’s Dan from Soft Surfaces here, and today this video is a colour wetpour installation at HMNB Faslane.
So the first thing we do is actually mark off the old ground for the installation. So as you can see those white lines there represent what we’re going to be installing. There it is around the slide for example.


00:23 Next, the SBR base is actually installed over the existing tarmacadam surface, so keep your surface there and we actually install the base which is ready for the wetpour to be applied onto it. So as you can see from the photos here, that’s then applied giving out a different texture over the tarmac and then like I said, ready for the color wetpour to be installed.
Next up, the wearing course is actually then applied to the surface.


00:43  So you can see here that obviously the color is down. It’s really helping to transform the look of the facility, and finally the completed project now. You’ve obviously got the wetpour fully installed. It looks fantastic on the surface. Really great for kids to be playing on, what’s keeping them safe and helping them with their educational and recreational needs, have play time too.
So thanks a lot for watching guys, and I’ll see you guys later.

Argyll and Bute

Argyll and Bute is both one of 32 unitary authority council areas and a lieutenancy area in Scotland. The administrative centre for the council area is in Lochgilphead. Argyll and Bute covers the second largest administrative area of any Scottish council. The council area adjoins those of Highland, Perth and Kinross, Stirling and West Dunbartonshire. Its border runs through Loch Lomond.


The present council area was created in 1996, when it was carved out of the Strathclyde region, which was a two-tier local government region of 19 districts, created in 1975. Argyll and Bute merged the existing Argyll and Bute district and one ward of the Dumbarton district. The Dumbarton ward, called ‘Helensburgh and Lomond’, included the burgh of Helensburgh and consisted of an area to the west of Loch Lomond, north of the Firth of Clyde and mostly east of Loch Long.


The council area can also be described by reference to divisions of the counties which were abolished in 1975. The council area includes most of the county of Argyll (Argyll minus the Morvern area, north of Mull, which became part of the Highland region in 1975), part of the county of Bute (the Isle of Bute) and part of the county of Dunbartonshire (the Helensburgh and Lomond ward).
