Creatively minimising risk of injury

This porous safety surface absorbs the shock and impact of a fall, therefore minimising the risk of injury. The wide range of colours offers fantastic opportunities for creativity with the application of different shapes and design themes.

“It was really great to sit down with Playcubed. They have lots of ideas, lots of really exciting apparatus that we could incorporate. The best thing is that they’re experienced – they have experience in creating the most amazing environments for pupils. The children love their new playground. They can’t wait to get into school in the morning and come out to play!”

What is Wet Pour Surfacing?

A ‘wet pour’ surface is a blended mix of rubber granules bound together, having been mixed on site and laid on an existing suitable, or specially prepared base to provide a continuous surfacing solution.

Wet Pour is made up of two layers – a base layer of SBR rubber and a top layer of EPDM rubber.

The environmentally friendly base layer consists of recycled rubber and polyurethane binder, forming a tough and durable base.

With the top layer formed from virgin EPDM, which consists of fine grade rubber granules and polyurethane binder. This creates a smooth and seamless play surface.

Because wet pour is porous, it provides the perfect all weather safety surface.

Create shapes and themes

Wet pour is available in a wide range of colours, giving endless opportunity to personalise your surface with bespoke designs. We can also mix colours together to create different blends.

Safety Surfacing

Installed to varying depths to meet the Critical Fall Height (CFH) criteria and BS EN 1177 requirements. Wet pour surfacing is one of the most popular surfacing solutions for play areas.

Wet Pour overlay

Overlaid onto existing hard surfaces, Wet Pour enables you to meet safety standards and brighten up an area more cost effectively.

New installation

We can install Wet Pour surfacing onto a variety of sub bases. Generally a new installation involves laying the SBR base layer and EPDM surface layer onto a well compacted stone sub base or open-grade porous macadam.

Overlay installation

Where the existing sub base is suitable, we install an adhesive primer to create a bond between the new and existing surfaces before wet pour installation.
