A popular surface type for playgrounds is wetpour rubber flooring which absorbs impact and can be installed in a range of colours and graphic designs.
Wetpour play surfacing can be installed with graphics to create educational designs and activities which children of all ages can enjoy.
We have many years of experience in installing rubber play area surfaces and would be happy to discuss designs and prices with you to help create the perfect outdoor surface for your school or nursery.
The wet pour EPDM surfacing is the most common of the two playground rubber flooring types and is used as the surface for a large amount of playgrounds across the UK. Wet pour surfacing is made up of rubber-crumb which is mixed together with a binder to create a soft, impact absorbing playground surface which comes in many colours. This surface can be installed on two different types of sub base, including a solid porous sub base and the MOT type 1 stone sub-base. Despite the MOT type 1 being the more common sub-base to use for EPDM surfacing, we prefer to use the solid porous type due to it being smoother and easier to apply. This surfacing will be excellent for all weather use, as wet pour is much more suited to use in the rain than a grass play area would be.
The types of facilities which would use this flooring include nurseries, primary schools, kindergartens and public parks near me. These are areas where children will be running around and playing on different equipment, so it's vital to have a safe surface in case they fall.

The shock pad for it is created entirely from recycled SBR rubber crumb (Styrene Butadiene Rubber), and then mixed together with resin binder. This system must meet the CFH (Critical fall height) and BS EN 1177 criteria which ensure that the children’s safety is a priority, and these requirements must be between 30 and 150mm in thickness depending on the facility in question. This helps to prevent any serious injury that may occur from a fall onto the surfacing, and therefore is a very important part of the surfacing. Other specifications such as bonded rubber mulch flooring can also be used as impact absorbing safety surfacing for children's playgrounds.

The other main type of playarea rubberised surfacing is the bonded rubber mulch. This flooring is fantastic for those with an existing grass play-area that becomes muddy during rainy weather, as this surface is installed over the existing grass area to ensure the flooring is usable all year round. This surfaces type acts as a much cheaper alternative than installing full wet pour EPDM rubber, and also makes the environment a lot safer for children who could potentially fall from the playground equipment and injure themselves.

There is a playground surface which is created from rubber bark chippings which are then bound together using PU polymer to ensure the material is strong and porous, helping for all weather conditions.

This flooring is excellent for those who look for a cost effective playground surfaces that ensures the safety of the children remain a priority whilst being usable all year round due to its porous qualities.
