Wet pour is an impact-absorbing rubber surface that has transformed modern playgrounds. When installed to the correct depth, it allows children to run, jump and tumble with a lower risk of falling over equipment and injuring themselves.
It is made from recycled bonded rubber crumb mixed with polyurethane binder, poured onto an existing tarmac or MOT type 1 stone base to create a seamless, joint-free and highly durable surface. The surfacing is available in a wide range of colours and patterns to suit any theme or environment.
Playground Perfection: How Wet Pour Rubber Surfacing Enhances Safety and Fun
Rubber wet pour is extremely popular in schools and nurseries as it provides a safe and secure playing environment for children, reducing the risk of injury from falling over play equipment. It can be installed at different depths to meet a range of critical fall heights, making it suitable for both toddlers and older children.
Wet pour can be used in a number of areas other than playgrounds, such as pathways and gardens. However, it is more commonly seen around multi-use game areas and in schools as it can be easily adapted to accommodate various equipment types and can support the use of outdoor classrooms.
Wet pour is hardwearing and long-lasting, so it requires minimal maintenance compared to other surfaces. However, as with all surfacing materials, regular inspections should be carried out to ensure that the wet pour is in good condition and that any repairs are carried out promptly to extend its life.
