Wet Pour Installation & Maintenance
When it comes to maintaining your play area safety surfacing, all this would require is regular sweeping to keep the area looking clear and clean and maintain the porous nature of the surface.
If you maintain your play area surface well, it can last for up to 10-15 years!
With all of this considered, it’s not hard to see why Wet Pour is one of the most dynamic outdoor play areas surfaces in surrey!
Our Wet Pour safety surfacing is tested to meet the BS EN 1177 safety standards for play safety and Critical Fall Height (CFH) ratings.
Bonded Rubber Mulch Playground Surfacing in Surrey
Bonded Rubber Playground Mulch is a playground surfacing similar to wetpour playground surfacing.
However, Rubber Mulch resembles Tree Bark to give your play areas a nice, warm natural look!
It is made out of recycled rubber shred and is bonded together with a polyurethane resin.
This means the surface is not only safe but more environmentally friendly!
Our Bonded Rubber Mulch safety surfacing is tested to meet the BS EN 1177 safety standards for play safety and Critical Fall Height (CFH) ratings.
How Is It Installed?
Before our installers can lay the Rubber Mulch they would first lay a Geotextile membrane.
Once the membrane is down we would mix the Rubber Mulch with a polyurethane resin and, similarly to Wet Pour, it would be poured onto the membrane and left to set fully before it can be used.
With Bonded Rubber Mulch Being a poured surface, it can also be laid around play equipment such as Climbing Frames & Swings!
Colours & Designs
If you want your play surface to have a highly natural aesthetic while ensuring your play area is as safe as possible, then Rubber Mulch is your choice.
Here are a few examples of the colourations you can have:
- Earth Brown
- Acorn Brown
- Forest Green

Artificial Grass Safety Surfacing in Surrey
Artificial Grass, also known as Play Grass, is natural-looking synthetic grass.
This type of surface is often preferred to real grass and other artificial alternatives due to its durability, low maintenance, fantastic drainage and amazing looks!
It is a surface that is very well suited to outdoor play areas, especially in the UK, with the everchanging weather, you can have to amazing appearance of a grass lawn, with none of the hassles of trying to maintain it during the high heat and pouring rain.
How is it installed?
If you’re looking to have this playground surfacing in Surrey, then you will want to know how it is installed, whether it is installed beneath playground equipment or just in your garden!
When we would come to your location to lay the playground surfacing, we would first lay a Geotextile Membrane, to prevent any weed growth from underneath the surface.
Then, if you have chosen to have this option or you have a CFH (Critical Fall Height) due to any play equipment in your playground, we would install a shock pad layer.
This makes the surface more forgiving with impacts.
Finally, we would install the Artificial Grass Surfacing, if you require it to be installed beneath playground equipment.
We would make sure it conforms to any fixing or stands in the play area, so your new playground surfacing looks amazing!
Specification & Maintenance
When it comes to using Artificial grass as a safety surfacing in surrey, we can offer multiple different options with regard to the thickness of the surface!
Here is a list of the thicknesses of Artificial Grass we offer:
- & 40mm
If you want to know which thickness of this playground surface would be best for your play area, then you know where to find us!
With regard to maintaining this surface, we would advise a regular visual check of the playground flooring and removing any debris and litter from the playground.
Tarmac Playground Flooring in Surrey
Tarmac, or Tarmacadam, is used for a wide variety of playground surfacing in surrey and all over the rest of the UK. This is because it is one of the most reliable, durable and low-maintenance surfaces there is!
This type of surface is often preferred when it comes to large play areas with a small amount of play equipment or areas that are also used for more sporting activities.
How is it installed?
First, if the area is unlevel, the area will be excavated and levelled; after that, a Geotextile Membrane will be laid to prevent weed growth.
The foundations are then installed to make a sub-base for the Tarmac; Tar and stones are mixed and poured over the surface and left to set!
Safety & Maintenance
keeping your little ones safe while having fun on the playground is the top priority; when it comes to Tarmac playground surfacing, we recommend using this surface in a play area with low height or no play equipment and not where there are Swings & Climbing Frames.
This is because Tarmac is a hard playground flooring, and falling from a significant height could cause injuries.
It is relatively simple if you want to keep your play area surfacing in tip-top condition with a Tarmac surface!
All it would require would be a regular visual check of the surface and removing any debris and dirt in the area.
We would also recommend having an annual professional cleaning done to keep your area looking amazing, which we offer!

If you think your current playground surface could use a facelift, this is the perfect product.

How Is It Installed?

- Once the paint has been mixed, it will be applied to the surface using a squeegee to ensure it is evenly distributed.
- The paint is then finished with a roller to provide a textured & slip-resistant surface.
- the paint is then left to dry and once it has, you can enjoy your amazing new surface.
Maintaining Your Playground Surface
All that would be required to keep your surface in the best condition would be to make sure to keep the area clean and clear of any debris!
Loose Rubber Mulch
Loose Rubber Mulch is a very similar surface to Bark Mulch, in appearance and practicality!
The major difference between the two is that Loose Rubber Mulch is, obviously, Rubber. So while it may not be as environmentally friendly as Bark Mulch, it is recycled because it is made from old shredded tyres.
Colours & Design
Unlike Bark Mulch, which comes in all the same colour, or many different colours mixed into one, Rubber Mulch colour can be chosen to suit your specific needs & wants.
While all of the colours we offer with this product are made to look natural, there is still a wide variety of options.
Picking out a design for your playground surfacing in surrey can be difficult; the good thing is that this surface is a loose one, which means if you would like to reshape or redesign your area, it is only the case of spreading the mulch out a different way or picking up and moving it to a different place.
Safety & Maintenance
Regarding safety, as the surface is made out of rubber, it will be softer than real Bark Mulch, and there would be less of a possibility of it breaking apart and creating sharp edges, not to mention splinters.
Maintenance-wise, the surface would require regular upkeep, such as using a rake to spread the surface evenly should it gather in certain places more than others and clearing any rubbish/debris.
One of the best elements of this surface is that because it is made from recycled rubber, it won’t degrade or decompose, which means it can last for as long as it is kept in good condition!
While this type of surfacing is similar to Wet Pour and Bonded Rubber Mulch, being a solid rubber surfacing, Rubber Tiles are often used for more rigid shaped areas like rectangular and square shaped areas.
How is it installed?
After you have done all the preparation work, like making sure the sub-base is level and the area is clear, you can begin laying your rubber tiles!
You will find laying the rubber tiles is a lot like a very easy jigsaw; all it is is a case of laying the rubber ramps around the sides of the surface of your rubber tiles will be raised, then laying them one by one and fitting them together.
Safety & Maintenance
Making sure your new surfacing in Surrey stays in good shape for as long as possible is a top priority!
For cleaning and maintenance, the method is quite simple; we would advise brushing and mopping the surface to keep it clean and looking fresh.
We would also advise carrying out the occasional visual inspection of the surface to ensure there are no cracks, chips or unevenness in the surface.
If any of the former exist, the damaged tiles would need replacing.
Safety is a big concern for everyone, and that is why our tiles are built to make sure your children stay safe while they are having fun; they are built to absorb impact and provide a safer environment for them to play in.
