Ideal for Many Uses

Wet Pour Rubber

Wet  pour rubber, also known as playground flooring or safety surfacing, is a mixture of rubber granules and a polyurethane resin (or binder). It forms a continuous surface that is durable and is frequently very attractive.

 Wet pour safety surfacing is suitable for schools, adventure playgrounds, leisure centres, recreation grounds, splash pads, hospitals, surgeries, and care facilities. In fact, it can be used anywhere where a decorative, impact absorbing  and non slip surface is required.

Redlynch have been installing rubber flooring for 25 years, and have a reputation in the industry for our expert knowledge, genuine advice and professional installations.

We source our materials from the most reputable suppliers. We have a loyal work force,  many of whom have been laying wet pour rubber for us since we started – arguably the most experienced operatives in the country.

How Much Does

Wet Pour Cost?

There are many variables which will affect the price of wet pour:

  • Size of area
  • Critical fall height (this determines the depth of the wet pour)
  • Colour
  • Access to the area
  • Pattern work and graphics

As an example, if we say that approximately 100m2 were to be laid, the cost would be between £30 – £90 /m2 + VAT.

These figures exclude any necessary ground preparation works. Again, these costs will vary according to size, access and ground conditions.

Technical information

Rubber Playground Flooring

Wet pour rubber is a flexible two-course safety surface.

The non-slip top layer, known as the wearing course, consists of tough and durable EPDM rubber granules mixed with a polyurethane binder. These clean cut and clean faced granules provide a well bonded surface with a high tensile strength that will prove to be extremely durable.

The base course comprises granulated recycled rubber and polyurethane laid to varying depths dependent on the equipment above. The softer base layer cushions the fall, progressively deforming and lengthening the impact over time and distance. For more information check out our wet pour technical overview.

Wet pour rubber surfaces are great for introducing colour to an area, and a variety of games, patterns and graphics can make them both fun and educational. Check out the choices on our colour options page.
