Wet Pour Rubber

Wet Pour Rubber is an impact absorbing rubber surface most commonly used in children’s playgrounds. Other applications include swimming pool surrounds, pathways, retail units and many more.

The system can also be used to create sports surfaces, such as running tracks, multi-use games areas (MUGAS), and daily mile tracks. It can be installed directly onto a hard standing sub-base such as: tarmac, concrete or paving slabs or a compacted stone base to a minimum thickness of 100mm.

The surface must have a secure perimeter edge to bond to, PC edging and timber are examples. If laid on top of an existing hard standing base an open edge can be tapered.

The Wet Pour Rubber system has a minimum thickness of 20mm and above when installing onto a hard standing sub base or 40mm and above if installing onto a compacted stone base

A 20mm thick wet pour rubber surface is laid as one course, whereas a system comprising of greater thickness is laid in two courses. The system is bound together using a polyurethane resin and is mixed with the granules onsite, before installing to the required depth. Curing time is required before a surface can be used.

Numerous graphics and designs can be incorporated into the surface to provide colourful patterns. Educational aids and games can be added to the design to provide a vibrant and interactive playground.

The thickness of wet pour rubber determines a tested critical fall height value. This allows for impact absorbency, which may be required around children’s play equipment or areas where there is a risk of falling.





Wet Pour Rubber Cleaning & Maintenance

Simple, regular brushing and removal of debris from the surface is the main requirement of wet pour rubber surfaces. As a safety surface becomes older it may benefit from power washing, algaecide application and disinfectant.

Andy at SSP Canterbury organised works at our Nursery in Dover which included artificial grass and wet pour playground surface, they were totally professional and nothing was too much trouble. The end result was fantastic and has really changed the outside look. I have no hesitation in recommending this company, they are excellent value for money.
