Choosing your playground design

Wet pour rubber is the ideal surface for use on a playground and public play areas. Rubber provides excellent safety benefits absorbing impacts of any potential fall, it is trip free and porous allowing water to drain through for all year round usage.

When it comes to choosing a design for your new wet pour playground there are many different options and possibilities.

At DCM Surfaces our Absorb a Fall is available in a range of colours including black, blues, greens, yellow, orange and red and more. We also provide the option to blend colours together using a mixture of different coloured rubber crumb to create a unique design. We source our premium materials from UK and Western Europe only.

Other popular colour mixing options include using a black rubber crumb mixed with a vibrant colour.
