Wetpour Repair surfacing is a popular choice for parks, schools and other facilities as it provides an impact absorption surface which can help to minimize injuries when people fall on the surface. This safety surface is made of small rubber granules that are bonded together with a polyurethane resin and then poured over tarmac. It comes in a variety of colours and can also include graphics and shapes which makes it fun for children to play on.
One of the great things about this type of safety flooring is that it is very easy to maintain as it is soft and can be easily repaired if necessary. Regular inspections are important as they can spot problems with the surface early which will help to minimise damage and ensure that the area remains safe for use.
Common Wetpour Issues and How to Fix Them
Some wetpour surfaces may require a topcoat which is a layer of new rubber that is applied to the existing surface. This will help to prolong the lifespan of the flooring and can be done every two years. This is a simple process that can be carried out by a professional who will be able to carry out the work in a short amount of time.
Another common repair that can be carried out on wetpour is a band repair. This is where the edges of the surface shrink away from the edge due to changes in the weather. This can be fixed by cutting around the affected area and then filling the gap with more wetpour which will be mixed with a new batch of rubber granules and binder. A specialist installer will be able to do this quickly and effectively without causing any disruption to the users of the facility.
