What is a wet pour rubber surface?
The Rubberworx Wet Pour system is mixed and poured on site to enable construction into a wide range of custom shapes and thicknesses. This innovative material is a porous, two-component surface covering that allows for free-form designs. It conforms to Australian Safety Standards and offers unique architectural and aesthetic features. The unique surface layer is locked with an elastic polyurethane binder specifically formulated for installation over aggregates such as asphalt, concrete and FCR. The cushioning under-layer is available in a variety of thickness to buffer falls (click to view our Rubberworx Fall Height Chart) and is covered by a durable RPCR or EPDM wearing layer.
Adheres to Australian Standards & Requires minimal maintenance
Durable, Versatile and flexible in design
Continuous surfacing and Extensive colour range
Impact absorbing and Slip-resistant
Where can it be used?
With an extensive list of benefits, the Rubberworx Wet Pour system is an ideal surfacing solution for a wide range of applications. Its impact absorbing and versatile/flexible features has made it the preferred safety surface in playground applications. Hard-Wearing and durable, along with slip-resistant properties, have seen the product being used in equine, sporting and public space applications.
Rubber Surface Installation Process
Site excavation may be required prior to commencing the sub base layer to achieve a finished surface level.
When replacing existing softfall mulch with a Rubberworx surface it is important to excavate down to a firm base ensuring to remove all loose mulch. Typically the softfall mulch will be at a 300mm depth.
The Rubberworx Wet Pour system is applied to concrete or, where restricted by budget or site-specific requirements, cement stabilised FCR sub base. We recommend the following;
- 75mm Concrete 25Mpa
Reinforced with mesh
25mm C Class Rock sub layer
- 100mm B Class FCR
3% Cement Stabilised
It is essential that the sub base been firm and stable to ensure the longevity of the Rubberworx surface.
Impact Attenuation Layer
Certain installations require a dual layer system, incorporating a cushioned layer to achieve a fall height requirement or simply for added comfort underfoot.
Applied in either our RPCR (recycled) or EPDM (synthetic) products, the wearing layer is the resilient top layer with the versatility to create custom shapes and designs.
