A Wet Pour Surfaces is a rubber safety surfacing system that has been manufactured on site and installed over an existing suitable base, or a new tarmac or concrete surface to provide a seamless surfacing free from joints. It is a highly impact-absorbing, safe, and durable product that is available in a variety of attractive colours. It is ideal for outdoor playgrounds and a wide range of other uses such as multi-use games areas (MUGAs), sports facilities, verandas and pathways.
Maintaining Wet Pour Surfaces: Tips for Longevity and Safety
Rubber wet pour surfaces have one of the longest lifespans on the market for a safety surface and are expected to last for up to 20 years in a domestic environment with low levels of usage. It requires very little maintenance compared to other surfaces, however it is recommended that the surface is regularly checked for foreign objects and any damage should be repaired quickly.
A wet pour surface can be installed onto a number of different bases, most commonly on to a dynamic base made from a mixture of crushed stone and graded aggregates or MOT type 1 stone. It can also be laid on to a porous asphalt base which offers good drainage characteristics, or over a concrete or tarmac surface which is less shock-absorbing than a dynamic base. A hybrid system is also available that combines both an engineered stone and rubber base offering extra strength to the surface beneath.
