As specialist installers of rubber safety surfacing in the UK, we can offer a wide range of wetpour services to schools, nurseries, public parks and play areas to ensure that any children using the facility are fully protected against injuries.

One of the main wetpour services we carry out is the full installation of rubber safety flooring to playgrounds in a variety of bright colours and designs. All of the rubber surfaces that we install have been specially tested to BS EN 1177 standards for safety and Critical Fall Height ratings to use with various playground equipment including swings and climbing frames.


Wetpour is becoming increasingly popular for schools and nurseries where young people will be playing. The surface can be installed in a number of 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. 

What is a Wetpour Surface?

As experts in the playground surfacing industry, we are able to install wetpour surfacing for schools, nurseries, play parks and various other areas in the United Kingdom.  This type of flooring is great for use underneath play equipment since it can be installed at different depths to meet safety requirements. We can work out the Critical Fall Height of the play apparatus and install the required depth to ensure children are not at risk in the event they fall off the play area equipment. 

The surface can also be installed in a number of colours to stand out to children and create a fun environment to play in. This soft surface can also be used for golf pathways and gardens. If you have any questions on this type of surface, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team.

EPDM rubber flooring is the most common product we supply for play surfaces. Wetpour may also be referred to as soft tarmacadam. This surface is far safer when compared with macadam because it’s much softer and spongier underfoot which means falls will not result in serious injuries.

This means that schools, nurseries as well as play areas countrywide are making use of this excellent product. We offer an array of products and services relating to wet pour, which means you can receive everything you will need without needing to go out to different companies. The full supply and installation of these facilities is one of our most popular services.

Wet Pour Flooring Specs

We can alter the designs and specifications of the surface to meet your individual preferences and requirements. If you have a small budget, we are able to alter the spec to meet your needs – as an example, you may choose to install black wetpour rather than colour, or you may decide on a thinner depth providing you have no play equipment.

One thing that you will need to think about when considering the wet pour specification to have installed is the depth needed to ensure the surfacing is safe for young children. If you have high play equipment within the area, you will generally need a thicker depth of EPDM rubber installed to meet the correct Critical Fall Height. Our team can discuss this in more detail if necessary and we can offer more information on the CFH and how this is measured.

What is the Price of Wetpour?

There are a number of different factors which can alter the wet pour costs. Obviously one of the biggest factors which can cause costs to vary is the size of the facility. Although it will be more expensive to cover a larger area in wetpour, the cost per square metre will be lower due to the economies of scale.

The colour of the surfacing will also cause the costs to change. If you need wetpour with a thicker depth due to the CFH, this can also cause the price to increase. Obviously, we’ll need to use more material and it will take longer to install.

The existing surface can also impact the costs, depending on what preparation work it needs. The more groundwork we need to do, the more costly the installation is likely to be. We will aim to offer you the best prices and get you the greatest value for money. Our team are experts in the industry and aim to provide top quality installations at affordable prices.

How is Wet Pour Installed?

We offer wet pour construction across the United Kingdom for playgrounds, golf walkways and more. The EPDM rubber surfacing comes as a 2 tier system, the very first layer being an SBR impact mat. The shock-pad offers cushioning to prevent injuries in case a child trips or falls. This, therefore, makes the facility much safer and reduces the risk of injury. The other coating will be the wetpour crumb wearing course which goes on top of the base.

These surfaces are obtainable in a variety of shades to make sure you acquire the best design intended for you. These types of surfaces can come with vibrant graphics and shapes which add educational games. The overall look and feel of your facility is completely your choice, ensuring you receive the surface that you want.

We can install wetpour in a number of areas including schools, nurseries, public parks, gardens and more. As experts in the industry with plenty of experience, we make certain that we complete our installations to the best possible standard to ensure the longevity of the surfacing.

We will also make certain that the surface is safe for young people to play on. Our team are more than happy to alter any specifications to meet your individual requests, so please don’t hesitate to mention any specific requirements prior to the construction.


Many nurseries and kindergartens will have this type of impact absorbing rubber surface installed to create a safe outdoor area. There are also plenty of colour choices and graphics which we could include as part of a vibrant and eye-catching design.

If you have any questions about these products or you’d like more information on the costs, please contact us today. Our specialists would be happy to speak with you about what you’re looking for and provide you with a quote for the work.

Nursery Rubber Safety Surface Playground


This video shows the installation of a wetpour playground surface in Lancashire. The play area had a lot of climbing equipment which needed a safety surface to protect kids whilst they were playing. We installed the wetpour EPDM surface in a multicoloured design with graphics which were engaging for the children. The final result was a functional and attractive rubber safety surface which children of all ages now enjoy.


Shrublands Pre-School at Wroughton Infant School (Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, Wetpour) – we were asked to provide a safety surface at this pre-school because young children were going to be using this facility. They wanted a surface which was eye-catching but also safe, this is why they decided to go for blue EPDM rubber. The video below, shows the installation of our surfacing:
