Wetpour Perimeter Shrinkage Repairs

Wet Pour Shrinkage Around Graphics

As wet pour shrinks then any graphics installed or day joints is a point of weakness of the surface area and will need repairing in its lifetime.

Wet Pour Repair Cracks

Equipment Removal

What Industry Experts Say About Wetpour Repairs

James Dooley – Soft Surfaces

Wetpour shrinkage can occur on any installation.

The weakest points tend to be around the perimeter or between day joints or where two colours meet.

There is no known reason why this happens and can happen to safety surfacing of any colour, any depth and installed on any sub base.

John Golden – The UK Playground Inspectors

Repairs should not be undertaken in the first 12 months of newly installed wet pour surfaces wherever practically possible as this is the period where the majority of shrinking occurs and if done too early after the original installation then the shrinkage is very likely to continue and the repairs need redoing.

David Snell – Soft Surfaces

The wider the area of surfacing the more the wet pour surface is likely to see the effects of shrinkage.

Whilst narrow pathways still shrink the effect is less noticeable.

Compacted stone bases when the wetpour shrinks tend to need the repairs the most.

This is because some of the mot stone is taken with the shrinking wetpour.

This causes the moving stone to rise over the fixed stone causing a lifting effect which can lead to trip points.

There is also a tendency to lift the raised playground surfacing to investigate the issue, this can lead to more stone movement adding to the lifting effect.

Anthony Jones – Manchester Council Park Inspector

The best advice to any facility owner is to repair damaged wetpour areas at the earliest convenience.

The longer you leave the unsafe rubber crumb surface the wider the problem.

It opens legal responsibility complaints or higher costs with the area size increasing that needs damaging.

Phil Jones – Playground Inspection Company

A wetpour repair is usually needed when inspecting parks in the UK.

The shrinkage around the edges can be easily cut back and replaced with new EPDM rubber granules.

We regularly specify remedial works to be done straight away.
