Wet Pour Surface Preparation

A number of factors need to be considered during the wetpour construction planning, most sports and play surfaces require a well draining sub base and it is therefore key to determine how and what your specific site requirements are. Wet pour safety surfacing is a porous system and should be laid on either an existing or newly constructed free draining sub base.

The surfacing of the wetpour construction is installed in a two tier system, starting with an SBR rubber base course which provides the impact absorption and can be installed in a range of depths. The depth of rubber which is installed will depend on the Critical Fall Height requirements of any equipment in the playground. The wearing course layer is applied in either black or coloured EPDM rubber crumb which is mixed together with a polyurethane binder and screeded onto the playground surface.
