SPORT & ATHLETIC TRACKS – WET POUR – OVERVIEW
Wetpour Rubber is a flooring system that is mixed on site with specially developed resins and trowelled by hand or sprayed on, to a specified thickness, creating a seamless surface. This rubber floor feels smooth and soft underfoot and cushions joints and ligaments.
Popular for its aesthetic potential and wear functionality, wetpour rubber can incorporate patterns, corporate logos and colour changes across the floor, allowing complete design freedom.
Wetpour can be laid over existing floors, provided that the current floor has no structural movement. Up to 100m2 can be laid in one day, and is generally ready for foot traffic within 48 hours.
Wetpour rubber surfacing must be applied by professionals due to the installation method and skill level required.
Minimum order per EPDM colour is 10m2.
Colour variations are possible. It is better to view real samples.
SBR & EPDM BENEFITS
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomers (EPDM) is a high density synthetic rubber which is weather resistant and absorbs less solar heat. It is extremely versatile with the ability to better withstand temperatures associated with environmental factors such as UV weathering and water swell.
Styrene-butadiene Rubber (SBR) is produced from black rubber tyres that are stripped of their metal reinforcing and then mechanically shredded into granules. These rubber granules are graded and available in different sizes, that can be coloured and used as an economical and surfacing.
While EPDM offers a wider range of colours and is more weather resistant, SBR is a more economical surfacing option.
WET POUR and IMPACT PROTECTION SLABS offers a combination of SBR and EPDM options to give you the best of both rubber products.
WET POUR and IMPACT PROTECTION SLABS applications can accommodate an installation of SBR as the cushion/base layer and EPDM as the wear/top layer.
We designed the playground, and wanted protective rubber to match the sandpit sand. Playsafe was apply to assist us by mixing three EPDM colours together for the wear layer, and we used recycled rubber mulch for a thicker cushioning underneath. They delivered a great service and product, so our client was as happy with the result as we were.
The purpose of therapeutic garden spaces at the Nelson Mandela Hospital was to provide relief from the stress and emotional trauma of a hospital environment. The landscape design intent was to create welcoming garden spaces for children that will bring joy into their lives and assist in bringing them back to good health. We specifically chose this product as it offered a palette of bright colours that are UV stable. The longevity of the colours is what sets it apart from all other available rubberised floor surfaces.
The success of a floor depends on whether it is fit for purpose and on its appearance. This is the reason why the design (i.e. its lines, contours, colours, shape, texture or material) may become an important factor.
Playsafe playground wet pour EPDM offers the most design freedom, as any design can seamlessly be incorporated into the floor. This flooring ensures that the colours stay vibrant, while the wet pour application is a designers dream and any design and colour combination is possible.
