Soft Impact Macadam
Wetpour or soft impact macadam spongy safety flooring is designed to be installed in areas such as playgrounds, parks, play equipment areas and pathways. This is because of its ability to be an impact absorbing, porous safety surface and offer protection against critical fall heights and general bumps with children.
This easi fall soft tarmac or bouncy rubber system is designed to be a 2 part safety system which comprises of a base easifall SBR rubber and a top EPDM rubber, both of which are mixed with a PU polyurethane binder and installed onto the designed and specified area with a trowel to the required safety depth. This wetpour safety easi fall flooring can normally be constructed and maintained in any area size and dimension and most specifications can be tailored to suit the individual client’s needs. Easi fall surfacing is an excellent flooring type to install in schools to ensure that children aren’t able to injure themselves as they will be falling on a soft surface to avoid any damage.
The wetpour surfacing is also completely porous to ensure no damages from flooding or waterlogging. However, if it is not regularly brushed, there is a chance of a build up of dirt on the surface which could provide a range of problems. This is because the dirt can block up the pores of the surface and therefore cause them to become blocked and consequently cause the surface to lose its porosity, causing flooding which can lead to permanent damage. A proactive maintenance strategy is therefore highly advised. This could include a simple brushing session of the surface every so often. However, during the winter it is crucial that this proactive maintenance strategy is followed as ice can have severe effects on the surface.
Best Durable Wetpour Surfacing
Wet pour or easifall poured in place needs to be constructed onto a solid sub base and there are numerous types of these. Bitmac, asphalt, tarmacadam, MOT Type 1 stone and no fines concrete can all be used, and depending on the base, a different minimum thickness can be achieved. For instance, MOT Type 1 stone would only require a minimum thickness of 20mm on tarmac and 40mm minimum thickness for MOT Type 1 stone. If your wetpour service is damaged, we recommend contacting us as soon as possible to schedule a repair as it can be a hazard for anyone using the surface. If children are the primary users of your surface, there should be no excuse not to get in touch as they could injure themselves during play.
