Wet pour EPDM rubber and SBR rubber mulch safety surfacing is increasingly popular in schools and municipal playgrounds, where it reduces the risk of injury after a fall. Besides its impact reducing properties it can also greatly enhance the aestetics of an area. This is particularly true in the case of the colourful types, especially when appropriate and interesting designs are integrated. It also enhances sporting areas where the required lines and shapes can be directly incorporated into the surface. Even in domestic situations it can be installed to improve safety or simply to liven up a dull area with colour by installing it to form a patio or garden path. It can be antiseptically coated which is particularly useful around swimming pools.
