Rubber Wet Pour – Safety Surfaces

Wet Pour Rubber Safety Surfacing is suitable for all playground installations where impact absorbent surfacing is a requirement, up to the appropriate Maximum Free Fall Height (see chart below). It can be used around complex configurations of playground equipment and ground contours.

Wet Pour surfacing for playgrounds is slip-resistant and non-abrasive to young limbs. It is porous, so puddles, which can create slippery conditions in the winter, do not form.

Colourful graphics can be created within the Wet Pour rubber surfacing to any attractive theme you may choose in order to enhance and add considerable play value to your playground. Games can also be added such as hopscotch, snakes and ladders, alphabet snakes, etc. Download the Surfacing section of our product book for ideas.
