  1. Play surface designs with a difference.

    Wetpour Safety Surfacing

    Looking for a great play surface design?

    When designing a playground you might be thinking of safety first, but once you have researched your surface options, design is the next step!

    Arrows and Flowers were the main design theme for two new play surfaces in Nottingham.

    Each play surface is comprised of approximately 200 square meters of wet-pour rubber safety surfacing. Both play areas were designed to incorporate large, brightly coloured graphics of various Arrow and Flower shapes.

    Materials Used

    The materials used in the construction of these play surfaces were from the FlooraBounce Range, consisting of FlooraBase recycled tyre granules, FlooraBright coloured EPDM granules and Dow Voramer™ MR1060 polyurethane binder.

    Join free surface.

    FlooraBright EPDM granules when mixed with Dow Voramer™ polyurethane binder, provides a strong and durable impact-absorbing surface, which can be installed in any shape and size without any joins.

    The EPDM granules are laid as a continuous surface that can be installed right up to existing play equipment to ensure there are no unprotected areas. The correct surface thickness is retained throughout to ensure a providing a low-maintenance surface option.

  3. Exports of FlooraBright EPDM Granules continue to expand

    Swimming Pool SurroundExports of the FlooraBounce range continues to expand with an order from the South of France to surface a swimming pool surround of approximately 700 square meters. The order details were very specific and required a bespoke granule size and colour mix. We commissioned a special production batch of FlooraBright EPDM granules sized at 1.0-2.0mm to help achieve the surface finish specified. The colour choice was also a special blend of Beige and Brown EPDM granules mixed at a 50:50 ratio.  The order was consolidated with Dow Voramer™ polyurethane binder and TPI Finish release agent and exported to Aude, France.

    Following this order and other recent exports we are now in the process of enhancing the Trade Partners International website further with multi-lingual versions – these will be live very soon!

    Also known as rubber mulch, this material is the perfect surface choice for a trim trail course situated in a wooded area. The coloured rubber bark closely resembles the look and feel of natural wood chippings, without the associated problems of degradation and compaction. In this case the Floorabark surface has been bound with polyurethane binder to ensure the right surface depth is retained in the critical fall height areas, but can also be installed lose if preferred. 

    Our Rubber Bark range (FlooraBark) is available in 4 different colours – Redwood, Greenwood, Brownwood & Bluewood, each colour being specifically developed to blend in with the natural landscape. The Trim Trail area above has been installed using a mixture of Redwood, Greenwood and Brownwood.
