Wet Pour Safety Surface
Wet pour safety surfaces are probably the most popular type of surface used in kids’ playgrounds. Why? Because it meets Critical Fall Heights standards and is a breeze to install.
Commonly known as ‘rubber tarmac’, it’s made of two distinct layers; the first layer is a shock pad to absorb impacts, while the second coloured layer is made of durable rubber. This is poured on top of the shock pad to whatever thickness you require and can be made in loads of different colours.

It's this versatility that makes it a dream to work with. It instantly transforms a previously dilapidated area into something that kids want to spent time in. And the best part? The rubber is made from recycled materials, so it's kind to the environment as well as the kids.
This safety surfacing can also be easily repaired. Find out about repairs here: https://www.wetpour-surfaces.co.uk/repair/

Rubber Safety Surfacing
Rubber safety surfacing can be used in a wide variety of places and can be installed for a variety of activities;
- In children's playgrounds around slides, swings, monkey bars and climbing frames
- On all-weather pitched for football, basketball, hockey etc.
- Parks and recreational areas
- Residential gardens
- Care homes
As well as being attractive to look at and being incredibly easy to install (it can be installed around existing structures), it places a huge tick in the safety box.
Its shock absorbing qualities make it the perfect surface to install where trips and falls might be a frequent occurrence, which is why it's so popular with schools, sports facilities and the elderly.
Installing a rubber impact-absorbing surface may be one of the best and smartest things you ever invest in for your facility.
Installing safety surfaces should be the number one priority for anyone who looks after a local facility where trips and falls are frequent. Children's playgrounds are a prime example of this, as young bones and muscles are particularly prone to injury through impact damage.
A safe surface such as wet pour rubber, or 'soft tarmac’ as it's sometimes known, is ideal for this scenario because it absorbs impacts and can be laid quickly and cheaply.

The same can be said for multi-sports pitches and courts, as it acts as a shock absorber to minimise injuries and improve grip. With as many applications as this, it's no wonder that impact absorbing surfacing is as popular as it is.
Critical Fall Height
Critical fall height is the maximum height that someone call fall from a piece of equipment. How does this relate to safe surfacing? Well, our safe surfacing adheres to BS EN 1177 standards, which means that our surfaces actively limit the damage that could be done from a potential fall.
This should be an encouraging statistic to anyone thinking of installing our impact absorbing flooring in a nursery or school playground. Keep your kids safe by installing our playground safety surfacing today.

Safety Surfacing for Playgrounds
Safety surfacing for playgrounds is where most people have come into contact (no pun intended!) with wet pour systems. They are bright, colourful and do an incredible job of keeping the kids safe against potentially harmful falls.
Made out of a shock absorbing pad with recycled rubber poured over the top, this two layered system creates a springy cushion that absorbs;
- Impact on the ankles and ligaments from running
- Impact on the body from jumping off climbing frames
- Impacts on bones from trips
- Impacts on bones from falls
It also reduces the chance of scrapes and cuts because there's nothing sharp to fall onto. Playground safety surfacing is available in a myriad of different colours and fun shapes and images can be incorporated into the designs. The most common requests are;
- A splat
- Geometric shapes
- School logos and coats of arms
