Creative Play Safety Surfacing

As the outdoor play experts we know that playground surfacing can make or break a playground development.


With a wide variety of surfacing types and colour options available here at Creative Play, you can be assured that we will find the ideal safety surfacing to meet your individual play requirements.


However, choosing the right playground safety surfacing can sometimes be a pretty daunting task.


Creative Play’s top three types of safety surfacing are Wetpour, Rubber Mulch and Artificial Grass with each having their own benefits and all provide an impact absorbing surface.


Playground surfacing forms an integral part of any playground development and, depending on the existing site and type of playground equipment to be used, is essential to meet the requirements of BSEN 1176 and 1177.
Great for enhancing a new playground development or rejuvenating an existing play area, our safety surfacing will definitely make a statement in any playground!

Wetpour Safety Surfacing



Wetpour Safety Surfacing is a continuous in-situ laid surface comprising of rubber granules bound together with polyurethane resin. It provides an all-weather playground surface that is smooth and suitable for wheelchair and less mobile users.


Wetpour has been designed to minimise the risks of injury as a result of a fall from play equipment. It is an impact attenuating surface, offering cushioning on impact, resistance to abrasion, slipping and ignition.


Wetpour characteristics ensure that it is not only an excellent choice for playground surfacing but can also give enhanced play value with fun and educational graphics.



We have a large range of colours available, with the additional option to mix colours 50/50 to create a fleck effect.


Designs can also be integrated into the safety surfacing to make even more of a statement in the playground. The possibilities are endless and they are great way to incorporate more play features into any play space – such as vibrant roadways, number snakes or even exciting characters or organisation logos!


If you can’t decide, fear not! Our talented, in-house play advisors and design team can help you decide what would best suit your project.


Rubber Mulch Safety Surfacing



Our Rubber Mulch Safety Surfacing is a durable bonded rubber playground mulch that is made from recycled rubber and designed to resemble woodchip – ideal where a natural appearance is required.


The unique bonded Rubber Mulch formula makes an ideal playground surface as well as being cost effective to install on any ground as it doesn’t require ground works.



Rubber Mulch comes in a range of colours and colour mixes and is fully porous and fast draining, making the surfacing suitable of all weather use.
