Safety Surfacing


EPDM wet pour safety surfacing is a high performance environmentally safe surface that is perfect for children’s play areas. Graded black or coloured EPDM rubber granules are mixed with resins to form a trowel applied wet pour surface that can be laid at a thickness to suit the critical fall heights of that area of play.
“Tumbletops Safety Surfacing” is our own special safety surfacing compound that creates an ideal surface for a safety-conscious play area. Our installation team have the capacity to surface small areas to entire playground sites.
Using polyurethane resin and EPDM rubber granules we are flexible to create a variety of colours and designs.

Colourful childrens outdoor play area

Safety rubber is installed with minimum fuss to the environment and has an extremely fast curing process, which keeps the application time and inconvenience to a minimum. On average, 80% of our surfaces are recycled rubber tyres, making it one of the most ecologically friendly safety flooring options available. Not only does it help clean up the environment, but the rubber’s sound absorbing qualities also help to reduce noise pollution.
Wet pour will add safety to the environment as well enhancing the playing experience with exciting and colourful designs; stimulating children’s minds and adding adventure and fun to your play area.

Our ‘Tumbletops’ wet pour system is tested to BSEN1177 and BS7188 and is covered by a five year guarantee against surface defect. Adhesion of the wetpour surfacing to PCC Kerbing is also covered by a five year guarantee as is the adhesion of wet pour to existing tarmac (including cut and chase edge). This guarantee excludes failure caused as a result of a structural instability in the existing tarmac. In addition, we offer a ten year UV stability guarantee on our wet pour meaning it will not fade against sun rays and a five year guarantee against staining from carbon release. Our surfacing does not contain in its finished state any substance which is known to be toxic or carcinogenic when in contact with skin and that no toxic or carcinogenic substances will be released as a vapour or dust during normal use.


This surface provides the natural feel without any of the maintenance associated with traditional bark. The bonded rubber shredding’s are available in a number of natural colours making it suitable for use in any green field site, or as a way to make an area more natural.
The surface is tested to European Safety Standard EN1177 and is subject to a RPII inspection upon completion of install.

Childrens play park


This high quality graded bark gives an attractive surface, which is well suited to most locations and for use with the majority of equipment.
Play bark surfacing has excellent impact absorbing properties and combines well with many units to give a warm natural appearance.
To meet the requirements of BS EN 1176 and BS EN 1177, all play bark surfaces should be maintained to a depth of 250mm. The use of raised bark areas will aid drainage.


We can install black rubber matrix tiles onto your existing turf, allowing the existing grass to grow through, which can then be mown as usual. As they are tested to EN1177 safety standards this is a cheaper alternative to other safety surfaces available.
This surface will follow any existing undulations on site. For more information on the benefits of safety grass matting, contact our experienced team today.
