Summer installations with DCM Surfaces

For many schools and nurseries the summer is ideal for development of landscapes, play areas, paths, walkways and car parks.

For DCM Surfaces the summer is a very busy period. DCM have more installation teams than anyone else in the industry. All our installers are full time employed, CSCS card holders and have been DBS checked and approved.

New play surface?

DCM Surfaces specialise in installing play surfaces. Our range of play surfaces include wet pour – a common playground surface using small rubber crumb bound together with an adhesive binder. Wet pour is available in a range of colours and themed designs.

Rubber Mulch is similar to wet pour but uses larger rubber chips. Rubber Mulch replaces traditional wooden bark which can be hard to maintain and can lack impact absorbing protection. Rubber Mulch is a very durable surface ideal in heavily traffic areas and can be used effectively on paths and walkways.

DCM Surfaces also install artificial grass which is ideal for play surfaces. Laid on a suitable base the grass is soft to touch and is easy to maintain compared to traditional grass.

All DCM Surfaces play surfaces are porous, allowing water to drain through.

Sports playgrounds and pitches?

DCM Surfaces offer a range of sports surfaces ideal for schools. We routinely install polymeric surfaces, a hardened rubber flooring ideal for Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs) which can be finished in a variety of colours and line markings added.

We also install artificial grass suitable for sports. Compared with traditional grass the artificial surface requires less maintain and is not subject to weather conditions. Line marking can be added for a range of sport making it ideal for MUGAs. 


Paths, walkways and car park resurfacing?

Maintaining paths, walkways and car parks is essential to ensuring safety in and around school grounds for pupils, staff and visitors.

Our range of decorative gravel surfaces are ideal for paths and walkways. The gravel is bound together with resin so does not move and provides a modern desirable finish. The gravel is porous allowing water to drain through and is very durable withstanding heavy traffic.

Resin Bound gravel can be laid in a variety of colours and designs including school crests and emblems can be incorporated into the surface.
