WET POUR SAFETY SURFACING

Wet pour is an impact absorbing safety surface that is found in schools, nurseries, and local authority playgrounds.

One of the main attractions of wet pour is that it’s available in a variety of colours and can be installed to almost any design. This is one of the many reasons we can’t provide a standard price per square metre.

Also known as ‘rubber crumb’ surfacing or ‘soft tarmac’, wet pour requires skilled teams to install the surface. That’s why our installation teams are trained to the highest standards and site managers have at least five years’ experience.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WET POUR

Wet pour is usually installed in a two-layer system. The topping layer or ‘wearing course’ of wet pour is formed using EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Modified) rubber crumbs that are bonded together with a polyurethane binder.  The base layer is formed using bound SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber) granules to produce the absorbing qualities of wet pour. This means that the soft play surface can be installed in a variety of depths, according to CFHs (Critical Fall Heights).

Wet pour requires a hard sub-base for us to install on top of, please see our technical information page for detailed specifications. When installed onto a free-draining sub-base, wet pour is porous and is suitable for all-year-round use.

Our wet pour playground flooring has been independently tested by the Centre for Sports Technology in accordance with BS EN 1177:1998 and also comply with all requirements of BS EN 7188:1998.
