Wet Pour Surfaces

Unlike loose-fill play surfacing which can be difficult to maintain, Wet Pour Surfaces is a quick-draining and cushioned surface that provides a safe environment for children to play. It’s also safety certified (CFH) and is made from recycled materials, reducing the amount of waste going into landfill. It’s also a more sustainable choice than wood chip surfacing, lasting 12 years or more and requiring no annual topping up like the traditional alternative.

Wet-pour surfacing is comprised of two layers – the base layer is made from recycled SBR rubber granulate sourced from old truck tyres, while the top layer is composed of EPDM granules that have been bound together to create an extremely durable and long-lasting product. This makes it ideal for use in areas of the playground that may experience frequent contact and impact from high-speed or high-energy play. It is often coloured and can be arranged in complex designs, making it a great option for schools and community playgrounds.

Exploring the Benefits of Wet Pour Rubber Surfacing

It can be installed onto a tarmac, concrete or newly-installed compacted stone base to provide a durable and versatile surface that is perfect for a variety of uses. This can include multi-use games areas, exercise and fitness areas, pathways or seating spaces in domestic gardens.

Due to the pliable nature of wet-pour, it can be installed to suit various shapes and sizes. It can even be designed with bespoke features that encourage learning, sensory and social play. Wet-pour is also a popular surfacing solution for ADA-compliant accessibility areas.
