Wet Pour Repair
Rubber safety surfacing is commonly for play areas in nurseries, schools and public parks. This is because it’s a durable and impact absorbing surface type, however sometimes wet pour repair can be necessary. Although it’s a relatively low maintenance surface specification, prolonged heavy use can lead to damage or flooding in some parts of the playground flooring. It’s important to take care of these issues as soon as possible to prevent them from spreading. It also reduces the chance of the area becoming unsafe for the children to use.

We can also supply wet pour repair kits which allow you to fix the damage yourself if the problem is contained to a small area with only minor damage.
The wet pour repair process generally involves cutting around the damaged area and filling it in with a new layer of EPDM surfacing, however we often recommend cutting out a decorative looking shape and filling in the shape with a different colour of rubber mixture. This is because the wetpour surfacing can fade in colour over time and sometimes the new rubber will not match the colour in the existing area so it can look better if it’s filled in with a different coloured design.

This is because the wetpour rubber specification can sometimes be prone to shrinking and expanding, especially with fluctuating hot and cold weather in the UK. When this happens, the rubber surface can start to pull away from the edge around the perimeter. This leaves a crack or crevasse which can be dangerous and cause trip hazards for children. Therefore it’s really important to get this problem fixed.
We can carry out these wetpour perimeter shrinkage repairs by filling in the gap around the edge of the playground area with a new application of EPDM rubber. We’ll often do this in a different colour to create a contrasting border.

This can be dangerous for young children because they might possibly fall when playing on the surfacing.

We supply a specialist wet pour band repair service that fills in the cracks with EPDM rubberised granules.
