Video Transcript

Hi guys it’s Dan here, and today we’re going to be showing you a School Playground Design and Install in Manchester.

So received a call from this client enquiring about having a large outdoor safety surface for their play area. They wanted to ensure they could put their own spin on the surface itself, with the ability to specify different colours and graphics for the flooring. We explained what we could offer them, and were quickly on site getting to work.

So the flooring option we ended up agreeing with the client to install was wetpour surfacing, which is the surface we most regularly install for playgrounds here at Soft Surfaces. Wetpour is made up of a spongy rubber material, and because of this it absorbs falls fantastically and meets the critical fall height standards needed for play areas.

Secondly, EPDM wetpour is perfect for those wanting an outdoor play area, as it’s rubber credentials mean that this surface option is actually porous. This makes it excellent for our rainy months here in the UK, as it’s much less prone to flooding than many other surface types.

Finally, with wetpour, those having it fitted also have the luxury of being able to choose practically any colour they want for their flooring to be fitted in, and can even choose to fit bespoke graphics to the surfaces such as games for the kids, shapes, logos and more!

We’ve been installing this surface type nationwide for over 20 years now, so please feel free to get in touch regardless of the job size!

You can see now that the final job is now complete, and looks excellent in the green colour they specified with the array of graphics scattered throughout. The client were absolutely buzzing with their new surface.
