This safety playground surface is available in a wide range of colours, including yellow, green, red epdm and much more.
What is a Wetpour Surface?
Wet pour surfacing is an impact absorbing rubber crumb safety surface. The rubber granules are mixed with a polyurethane resin and laid in the desired colour.
The installation of rubber safety flooring to playgrounds is available in a variety of bright colours.
All our rubber surfaces are tested to BS EN 1177 standards to meet safety and Critical Fall Height ratings. to use with various playground equipment including swings and climbing frames.
Wetpour surfacing is becoming increasingly popular for schools and nurseries. The surface is installed in many different depths to meet certain requirements.
We can also install play graphics on the areas to create fun, educational games for the children to play on. When the shock pad is down, the next step is to install the wearing course. This is 1-4mm EPDM rubber that we mix with the polyurethane resin and pour onto the shock pad.
