The wet pour play surface is a highly durable rubberised safety surfacing system that can be installed in a wide range of colours and designs. It can be used in a variety of locations, including children’s playgrounds, school grounds, local parks and MUGA’s. It is designed to be long lasting and requires little maintenance, ensuring it provides value for money over a significant period of time.
The wet pour surfacing that is used in the playground industry, also known as poured rubber flooring or soft play, consists of a base layer made up of granules mainly from recycled tyres that are bound together with a polyurethane binder and a wear layer that can be coloured to create a fun, vibrant look that will appeal to kids. It is also designed to absorb impact and has a shock absorbing effect which reduces the risk of injury during use.

It is also a great alternative to other types of playground surfaces like wood chips or PVC tiles as it doesn’t splinter, unlike wood. It is also very durable, with a life expectancy of 10 to 20 years – depending on the quality of the product and level of usage.
Wet pour surfacing is a great option for playgrounds because it allows for the design of colourful, engaging spaces that are attractive to children and will help to spark their imaginations during free play. The endless possibilities in terms of colour, patterns and shapes can help to encourage learning through play which is another important aspect of any playground.
