Burgess Matting and Surfacing Playground Safety Surfacing Systems

The Wetpour seamless application is the most popular of the Burgess playground systems. It is available in three textures:


This is the most commonly used safety surface which has a non slip, porous surface. The texture is similar to small grains of rice which are polymerically bonded to produce a hardwearing all weather surface.


Small granular chipped rubber pressed together to provide a coarser surface and a slightly more porous surface than the Safebond for draining extra large volumes of surface water.


Small permanent colour synthetic EPDM rubber with the same properties as Flexibond, with a softer feel and more colour options. Can be used for designs within the safebond matting as it is not an economical option for larger areas.
