Wet pour is an anti-slip and impact absorbent playground surface available in a range of colours and artistic designs. To install a new wet pour surface, a hard base is required such as tarmac or concrete. Due to the non porous nature of wet pour, the surface is often installed at a small gradient to enable water run off for efficient drainage.
Wet pour colours include rainbow green, may green, grey, brown, red, dark blue, sky blue, black, earth yellow, orange, purple, turquoise, egg shell, beige and yellow. The colours can be mixed to create unique patterns on the playground surface for children to enjoy.
The present UK standard for impact absorbing playgrounds are BS EN 1177 and BS 7188 which include tests for critical fall height, indentation, slip resistance, durability and flammability.
