Spongy Safer Pour Surfacing for Playgrounds

The spongy safer pour soft surface usually found in play areas is termed differently from person to person, for example someone may call it ‘rubber play area flooring’ whereas someone else my know it as ‘rubber tarmac for children’s playgrounds’. Within the industry this surface is known as ‘Wet-Pour’ safer surfacing, this offers an ideal playground surface and a safe environment for children to play on at schools and nurseries or at public play areas.

Spongy Safer Pour Construction

The construction of a spongy safer pour playgrounds surface involves mixing rubber granules with a strong adhesive resin and laying it in situ. Safer pour rubber playground surfacing is laid as a two tier system compromising of a safer pour base layer made out of 100% recycled SBR and a safer pour wearing course which is made out of rubber EPDM. The thickness of the base layer varies in size dependent on the required Critical Fall Height (CFH) with the thickness of the wearing course nearly always staying the same at a depth of 15mm, it is this wearing course that determines the colour of the surface and in turn the price.

The perfect sub-base for the safer pour rubber surface to be laid upon is macadam as it is an open textured, porous surface making it SUDS compatible. This means water is allowed to drain correctly through the system which decreases the risk of flooding and water damage.
