With age, wet pour surfaces can shrink away from the sides. The process is particularly common in the UK. This is because UK surfaces are put through their paces with a variety of temperatures and weather conditions.

PlaySmart’s team helps maintain the integrity of wet pour surfaces with EPDM edge strips and patches. The higher tensile strength of virgin rubber EPDM remains secure and safe for longer. Additionally, if completed in a contrasting colour, this can bring new life to an area while removing any trip edges.

Our installation team applies the rubber mulch is installed along the edges of a surface and over any gaps in wet pour that have emerged. This covers weaknesses in the surface and prevents water from entering cracks and widening them over time.

  1. We have some wet pour surfacing in our nursery that has shrunk away from the sides. We would like a quote for filling it if possible please. We can photograph and send measurements if that would save a visit.
