Wet Pour Surface Preparation
A variety of colours and graphic designs can be installed within the wetpour surfacing to create a bespoke play area surface which is unique to the particular school, nursery or public recreational area.
We aim to keep the costs of the installation as low as possible. However since we only make use of premium materials there may be cheaper contractors out there, although they might not be able to offer the same quality installations as we can offer.
You’ll need to consider a number of factors 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 we need to lay it onto a free draining sub base.
The surfacing of the wetpour construction consists of a two tier system. This begins with an SBR rubber base course which provides the impact absorption and can come 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 comes in either black or colour EPDM rubber crumb. We’ll mix this together with a polyurethane binder and screed it onto the playground surface.

Wetpour Groundworks Sub Base
We have various wetpour groundworks sub base specifications for playground safety surfacing to fit most budgets and can provide the full works from ground excavation, sub base installation, supply of equipment to laying the safety surfacing itself. The various groundworks specifications range from a well compacted MOT Type 1 sub base with timber edges to an open textured porous binder course of macadam with Pre Cast Concrete (PCC) edges, which would be our preferred sub base where budgets permit.
We can help you through the whole process of designing your wet pour construction project. Our team will ensure you get the perfect playground surface which will suits your requirements.
We can develop a full specification and scope of works including the wetpour groundworks sub base and rubber surfacing installation. You can also choose colourful rubber graphics to create a fun and stimulating environment for kids to play in. Once the wet pour construction process is complete, we can also offer maintenance services as well as additional equipment such as repair kits and liquid de-icer to help look after the playground flooring and keep it in top condition. If you require any of these extra maintenance kits please get in touch with us and we’ll send one over to you.
Wetpour Two Tier System
The flooring is made in a 2 tier system, the 1st layer in the method will be the SRB shock mat. The shockpad was created to protect children while using the facility just in case they will fall making the facility much less hazardous. The next tier will be the wetpour rubber crumb wearing course which we install on top of the shock pad. This top coating could be specified being a great deal of various shades to give your area the individuality.
Below you can see one of our recent projects installing this surface for a pre school:
We can also include colourful graphic shapes with the design of this surface. There are loads of options available and these are great for adding fun activities to the area. The style of the facility is totally in your control, ensuring that you get the surfacing you would like.
Installing Wet Pour Surfaces
Wetpour is becoming more and more popular across the United Kingdom. We are experts when it comes to installing wetpour surfaces and we can offer the best installations across the UK. Wetpour is also known as rubber tarmac. This kind of surfacing is much safer than tarmacadam since it’s a whole lot gentler and spongier underfoot this means trips as well as accidents would not bring about a lot of injuries.
This means that universities, nurseries as well as play-areas country wide will be making use of this excellent product. We offer a tremendous selection of unique products and services within the wet pour market, causing us to be a one stop purchase all of your flooring wants. This really is the most in-demand service our company offers is surface fitting.
Critcal Fall Height Requirements
We can install the surfacing in different depths to meet different critical fall height requirements. The CFH varies depending on how high the play equipment is in the area and the existing sub base. Generally the higher the play equipment, the thicker the wetpour needs to be. The CFH varies to make certain that children don’t get hurt if they fall off the play equipment. A similar measurement to consider is the Head Injury Criterion (HIC) which we also apply to equipment. The playground surface HIC is important in keeping children safe outdoors.
