Wet Pour Rubber – A Popular Choice For Playgrounds
A wet pour rubber surface is a popular choice for playgrounds as it provides a safe, durable and comfortable surface for children to play on. It is impact absorbing, and helps to reduce the risk of serious injuries from falls.
It also comes in a range of bright colours and can incorporate a variety of designs, giving children the opportunity to create a unique and visually appealing surface. Unlike loose-fill surfacing systems, wet pour rubber surfaces require very little maintenance, meaning they are a cost-effective option for many playgrounds.
Wet pour rubber can be laid over a wide range of hard standing surfaces such as, tarmac, concrete and MOT type 1 stone. It is important to ensure that the surface is dry before the overlay can be applied as if there is any dampness the new surface may not bond with the existing wetpour.
