Wet Pour Rubber Safety Surfaces are becoming hugely popular in playgrounds, schools, and even our own gardens. Our safety surfaces are laid in accordance to UK fall height regulations. There is a large range of colours and even pre-made designs which we can help you choose from to create an asthetically pleasing, as well as safe surface.
This is a pourous, hard wearing, weather-proof surface. Most commonly installed in a two layer system, with the top layer being the wearing course and a base layer of variable depth to suit fall height regulations.
This durable material can be laid bonded or unbonded. Most common uses for this material are in landscaping, giving a beautiful low maintenance look to flower beds. Also used in playgrounds, just like rubber crumb.
Why choose rubber?
Our rubber materials come from recycled resources like tires and other car parts, and comes in an array of colours for bespoke design patterns. Wet pour rubber is an almost seamless spongy surface which absorbs impacts from trips and falls. It is an ideal surface both outdoors and indoors for schools, nurseries, playgrounds and anywhere else there may be a risk of falling.

How thick should the rubber be?
The depth of material required depends upon what the area will be used for. If the area is used as a run around area with no play equipment, then the depth should be minimum 20mm.
Around play equipment, the depth of rubber depends on the fall zone and the highest platform someone could fall from.
Depth of rubber is calculated using the play equipments Critical Fall Height. The graph to the right shows at what heights the thickness of rubber below it should be.
