What is Wetpour Surfacing?

Wetpour surfacing, also known as rubber safety surfacing or rubberised playground surfacing, is a type of resilient and impact-absorbing surface commonly used in parks, school playgrounds, nurseries, sports facilities, and other areas where safety is a concern.

It is designed to minimize the risk of injury from falls and provide a comfortable, slip-resistant, and accessible surface for various activities.

We are a leading company in safety surfacing installation in Castlereagh and offer flexible flooring for outdoor applications.

Our wetpour surfacing is made using EPDM rubber granules to create a flexible playground safety surfacing commonly found in outdoor areas and school yards across the nation.

We use the highest quality materials for our playground flooring and install using a two-layer system for maximum safety.

This rubber safety surfacing is ideal for all kinds of outdoor areas, and we install it to meet the required depth of critical fall heights, which is the national safety standards for this kind of work.

We install every surface in two layers, starting with a polyurethane resin base layer per square metre and then a top layer which is made primarily of the rubber crumb surface and comes in a range of colours. These are combined using a polyurethane binder in the sub-base layer to ensure longevity.

Our wet pour surfacing is flexible and durable, making it suitable to use in outdoor areas to protect children. You can find our two-layered system in most school yards, children's playgrounds, and around play equipment to protect young people as they play freely.
