wet pour playground surface

The wet pour playground surface is an impact absorbing rubber crumb safety surfacing that is popular amongst schools, parks, and commercial facilities. It is durable, easy to maintain, and comes with a range of customization options. Wet pour is a single-layer material that can be laid in any shape and thickness, and it’s ideal for playgrounds because it can absorb impact and reduce injuries from falls. In addition, it is designed to accommodate a variety of play equipment and can be tailored to children’s needs with a range of colors and designs.

Designing a Vibrant and Safe Playground with Wet Pour Surfacing

Wet pour is a mix of rubber EPDM granules with polyurethane binder that’s mixed on-site and poured over the base layer. This layer can be a coarse black layer made from recycled tyres, or a colored layer of finer EPDM granules in a wide selection of permanent colours. It’s important to note that the coloured layer of wet pour will cost up to four times more than the base layer, depending on the manufacturer and color choices.

One of the biggest benefits of a wet pour surface is that it doesn’t require yearly maintenance like loose-fill options, which can cost an average of $3,000 per year. In addition, wet pour can be installed over a range of surfaces, from porous stone to hard tarmac and concrete. It’s also worth noting that a wet pour system can be installed on top of existing asphalt, as long as it has a solid base layer.
