soft, safe & impact-absorbing Rubber Crumb & Resin Binders
Wet pour rubber surfaces are bright, safe, impact-absorbing, wheelchair friendly and fully permeable surfacing solutions. This smooth rubber surface is commonly used in and around playgrounds, play areas, parks and other recreational areas to create a protective flooring solution with high critical fall height ratings.
These stunning two-layered rubber surface systems are created by using an SBR sub-base and a coloured EPDM vibrant top surface. The SBR and rubber crumb are separately mixed in a forced action mixer with a specially formulated resin binder. The resulting rubber bound material is then spread over the project area and levelled with a trowel.
Wet pour surfaces feature SBR as a sub-base and EPDM as a decorative top layer.
SBR (styrene butadiene rubber) is a mixed with natural rubber which is typically derived using recycled tyres at the end of their working life.
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber) is a synthetic man-made rubber manufactured to be just like SBR but is coloured ready to be the decorative top surface or used as a unique graphic.
Our versatile rubber crumb surfacing can be used for a wide range of applications including playgrounds, parks, other recreational areas and so much more
Yes, our unique rubber surfacing is perfectly safe which is why it is constantly used as flooring in and around playgrounds and play areas where children play and have fun.
The correct SBR sub-base and ground preparation is incredibly important though, but when our recommended installation instructions are followed, our rubber crumb carries a superb critical fall height rating.
Yes, our wet pour is EN:1177 certified, which as long as the highest point of play equipment has a suitable surface depth below, can absorb the impact from a fall.
Our range has been tested to ensure it fully complies with international standards.
After curing for approximately 24-48 hours, wet pour can be safely walked on, however, the amount of time taken to fully cure is entirely dependent on the outside temperature.
Yes, as long as your sub-base has been correctly built-up below your SBR layer, then rubber crumb will allow rain and surface water to drain naturally away through and to the surface below.
Wet pour is simple to maintain by simply following these preventative and reactive steps:
Yes! Once installed our rubber wet pour surfaces will not be affected by wind, rain, snow and other types of weather. When bound together using a UV stable resin binder used with your chosen rubber crumb, your surface will not fade away in sunlight.
The installation of wet pour rubber using EPDM will in most cases follow the same set of simple instructions which you find below, but the depth of the surface depends on the areas use to ensure users are kept safe.
For example, if you are laying a rubber surface under a playground, the height of the play equipment would then decide exactly how deep your SBR and EPDM surface needs to be to meet critical fall height requirements.
This diagram provides the detail on how much of an SBR base layer and EPDM coloured top layer is required to achieve a specific Critical Fall Height. These Critical Fall Height values have been tested by RAPRA.
