Wet Pour Playground Installation

Please see a video below showing a recent wet pour rubber safety surface that we installed in Chelmsford, Essex. This highlights the process of laying from sub base to final wearing course EPDM layer in a fantastic design whilst also incorporating preformed graphics.

Please see video transcript below:

00:07 Hi there. This is Dan from Soft Surfaces here and today we’re going to be showing you a wetpour installation in the Chelmsford, Essex area.

00:14 So the first thing we did for this was actually remove the existing surface, so these photos here show a completely stripped back stone surface, which we actually removed the existing surface from that. Then after that the surface was actually marked, so those markings represent where the wetpour is going to be installed. So, you know, there’s the rough area that’s showing the area size.

00:31 Next up, the SBR base is prepared and installed on the top of the surface, so you can see that here on this video which is probably one of the crucial parts of the installation. Next up, the wearing course is then applied. So, as you can see, the color is starting to come through now, it’s starting to look a lot more like the wetpour playground that we want to install.

00:49 So the final installation is now done. You’ll see from these photos here it looks absolutely fantastic, ready for the kids to play multiple games on. And on this actual particular installation, we used many colors including reds, greens, yellows as you can see, and it really helps the surfaces stand out.

01:06 Thanks a lot for watching, guys and I’ll see you guys later.
