Wet pour playground surfacing is often called a variety of different names including bouncy safety surfaces. There are also other names such as rubber tarmac, spongy rubber surface, soft pour, soft play surfacing or rubber crumb flooring. The wetpour surfacing is created using a two tier system including the base layer or shock pad layer which is made up of 2-6mm styrene butadiene rubber granules mixed with a polyurethane resin and laid up to an edge on site.
This is the layer that usually varies in depth to meet the Critical Fall Height or Free Fall Height which is governed by the height of any play equipment on the site and normally specified by the company that manufactures the play equipment. The playground surfacing wearing course layer is commonly made up of 1-4mm EPDM rubber crumb that is mixed with a polyurethane resin and laid on site.
The wearing course EPDM is what determines the colour of the surface, wetpour EPDM granules are available in a wide range of colours with graphic designs and playground surface activities. The colours that we use are red, green, blue, orange, purple, teal and many more. The colour EPDM along with depth and size of the area being covered, determines the prices and costs of the job.

Wet pour surfacing requires a wetpour maintenance programme to keep it in prime condition. Maintaining it helps keep it clean and performing to its best consistently and all it takes are a few simple procedures carried out regularly. Leaves, weeds and other vegetation should be not be allowed to sit on this area, this can cause a drain inhibiting skin to form on the facilities surface providing perfect conditions for moss algae and weeds to grow on the surface. This allows moisture and water to be held on the surface preventing it from being and porous and could cause issues like expansion and contraction in freezing and cold conditions.
These problems can easily be prevented and save you a considerable amount of money in maintenance repairs just by regularly maintaining the surface with a brush and copious amounts of water as well as a light jet wash or hose down. Making sure correct footwear is worn on rubber safety floor is also key to maintaining consistent performance of the rubber surface. Sharp footwear such as high heels or football boots could penetrate the wearing course of the surface.
Repairing small blemishes such as stains or chewing gum marks can help prevent more expensive costs like future repairs. In the instance of a stain appearing it is likely that it can be removed with a solution of hot water and detergent such as washing up liquid. Chewing gum and oil marks can sometimes be more difficult to clean and maintain however it is possible that chewing gum can be removed by applying a freezing aerosol and oil stains removed with the application of a methylated spirit, as with the use of any cleaning products. Our team can carry out all of these services for you at a reasonable price.
