Wet Pour is a very common safety surface that is used in childrens play parks, pathways and play areas as it will provide protection against critical fall height. We have installed soft tarmac in many areas of Cornwall including Bodmin, Truro, Camborne and Redruth. Rubber EPDM rubber crumb wetpour, is a recycled rubber that is mixed/binded with a PU binder and put into the required area.
The Soft Safety Rubber can also be installed and specified into different thickness and installed over different hard sub bases and these will help to protect against higher fall heights. Cornwall is a big county which we are proud to have installed in. Areas such as St Austell, Falmouth, Penzance and Newquay have all had our surfaces installed to a very high quality and have always given good customer feedback.
Wetpour Play Areas
Wetpour is a great surface for play areas in playgrounds and parks. This is because of the better safety enhancements it offers and because of the different choices available to you. The surface can come in a range of different colours, shapes and designs to fit your surface perfectly. By combining these benefits, the school is provided with an excellent external facility where children are engaged with the bright coloured surfaces and if necessary, are given an educational activity to complete. This is because the surfaces can be designed with numbers and letters to allow the children to learn at the same time as socialising with their friends. Therefore, the wetpour provides benefits to both the school and the pupils because the fresh air that the pupils will receive will mean that their attention spans are widened and consequently that the teachers will be able to complete their purpose of teaching the children to a much higher quality.
Maintaining your wetpour is also very important. This is because of the highly beneficial porosity that the wetpour offers when kept clean. To keep your wetpour clean, simply brush along the surface every so often to ensure that no dirt is able to build up throughout the area. The dirt can stick to the wetpour and block the pores, causing cases of flooding and waterlogging. This flooding can further cause permanent damages to the wetpour so proactive maintenance is highly advised.
Wetpour can vary in thickness and meets the BS EN 1177 requirements. It also meets the required CFH (Critical Fall Height) and can be created to your exact required specification. Repairing a wetpour surface can either be very straightforward or very complex. Depending on the severity of the damages to the flooring, we may decide that a full repair is required which would mean that our expert team would need to visit your facility and carry out large-scale repairs themselves. However, if the damages are only minor, there is a chance that a repair kit would be able to fix this to save you money and time. Repair kits consist of binder, primer rubber gloves and wetpour and only require yourself to carry out the repairs. If you are unsure on which repair is required for your facility, contact our team through filling the provided contact form with all of the details of your surface and damages and we will respond as quickly as possible.
