Mammoth wet pour playground surface installation

Wet pour play surface installers have laid a mammoth playground surface at Watermead Park, Leicester for Leicester City Council. Not huge, only about 25m² but it really is underneath a Mammoth.

The concrete structure stands in pride of place atop a hill overlooking the lakes created from old gravel workings to the north of the city. Now established as one of Leicester’s premier parks the Council’s Highway Engineers rightly decided that as the concrete mammoth was being climbed and played on by children, this presented the risk of falls. So they called upon the expert services of, their regular play surfacing suppliers, who quickly installed their tested Compliant wet pour surfacing system. successfully tender for Bromley Wet Pour play surfacing has recently been awarded another contract for the London Borough of Bromley to resurface four more of its playgrounds with their Compliant Wet Pour rubber impact absorbing playground surface.

Compliant Wetpour is fully independently tested to the current playground standard BSEN1177 as well as undergoing additional testing for tensile strength and elongation ensuring that the product is as safe and hard wearing as anything available on the UK market.

Compliant Wetpour is available in a range of thicknesses to suit different height equipment and can be finished in either black recycled EPDM rubber or bright coloured EPDM rubber including red, blue, green and yellow.

On two of the Bromley sites are inlaying intricate designs into the wetpour surface using coloured rubber. Widmore Recreation Ground in Bromley has a “space” theme with planets, spaceman and rockets inlaid. Biggin Hill Recreation Ground close to the famous WWII airfield has inlaid Spitfire aeroplanes included as a tribute to its Battle of Britain heritage.

Work on the surfacing started on site at the begining of December 2009.
