Wet-Pour Safety Surfacing
The wet-pour system for a synthetic rubber flooring is used as a shock-absorbent in playgrounds.
It consists of two layers of rubber, the bottom layer acting as the shock absorbent and the top layer as a UV resistance.
Bottom Layer. The base of the floor consists of 100% recycle rubber called SBR and their granules (black) have a size of 2-6 mm. This is the layer that absorbs the fall from the equipment and its thickness is determined by the CFH of the equipment. The layer is bound with polyurethane resin.
Top Layer. The top part is made by EPDM granules. It has a thickness of 10-15mm and is used to protect the bottom layer. It comes in different colours therefore providing the possibility of colourful designs. The layer is bound with polyurethane resin.
The EPDM can also be applied by itself without the use of the base layer. In cases like this, the layer is thicker.
Both layers are free from polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH).
At the end of each installation/project, a test for the CFH is provided for the issue of a certificate of compliance with EN1177 standard by an independent body.
