What is it !

Wet Pour rubber safety surfacing is suitable for 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 children. It is porous, so no puddles.

Colourful graphics can be created within the Wet Pour for games or emblems. This is done by designing a stencil and cutting out the top layer to replace it with contrasting colours.  Or pattren tiles can be placed on the base layer and lay top layer wet pour around them.

How it Works !


1) Solid sub base & border is required
2) It is pourous
3) Mix and lay base crumb (10% resin)
4) Mix and lay EPDM top (20% resin)
5) Allow 12 hours for each layer to cure

The required sub bases for wetpour

  1. Concrete or open-textured tarmac
  2. MOT Type 1 stone (50mm or more)

The Standard Wetpour Method
(2 layer process)

The base layer provides the safety cushion effect. It is recycled 2-6mm crumb bonded rubber, mixed on site using special equipment and laid to exacting standards usually 30-50mm with 10% resin.

Base layer per 1 sqm 2-6mm crumb Resin
20mm depth 12.5 kg 1.25 kg
25mm depth 15.63 kg 1.56 kg
30mm depth 18.75 kg 1.88 kg
35mm depth 21.88 kg 2.18 kg
40mm depth 25 kg 2.5 kg

The top EPDM layer. Recommeded to be 20mm is a specifically manufactured polymer of  1-4mm granules designed to be very hard wearing and colourfull.

Top layer per 1 sqm 1-4mm EPDM Resin for coloured Resin for black
15mm depth 12.5 kg 2.5 kg 2.65 kg
20mm depth 16.7 kg 3.33 kg 3.51 kg
25mm depth 20.83 kg 4.17 kg 4.40 kg


Critical Fall Height Requirements


Wet Pour Ground Preparation

Our method is to use 4 x 2 inch lengths of treated timber edging.
We use pegs and screws to secure the timber, slightly sunken into the ground and the finished height measured from the inside.
You will need approx. a ton of either MOT type 1 or crushed stone per 25sqm. Leave 50mm or whatever you plan to fill in the Wet Pour.
Put half of the crushed stone in, level and compact it, check levelness with a spirit level and compact again if need be.
Then add the rest of the stone and level and compact again.

There may be other way to do this, however your groundworks person thinks best. Let us know if you have any further questions.
