In addition to being experts in the installation of decorative resin bound systems, we’re also regularly asked to complete safety related projects, including HMS EPDM Decra®Play resin-based safety surfacing for play areas.
EPDM rubber crumb consists of varying levels of base component, topped with a tighter grade of coloured rubber completing the finished effect. The depth of the base is wholly dependent on how high the potential fall risk may be. For example, the EPDM around a climbing frame would be up to 10 x times deeper than the same material installed on a footpath.
All of our play surfaces have been tested and meet the recommendations set out in British and European standards BS7188 and EN1177. In addition, we offer a full spectrum of colours and preformed shapes, numbers, letters and more elaborate installations, which can all be fabricated to meet a bespoke order. To avoid standing water and flooding on the surface, our EPDM surfaces are SUDS compliant with a water and air permeable construction to facilitate the free draining of surface water, keeping play areas clean and dry.
The HMS EPDM surfacing solution offers good value for money, as several hundred metres can be installed in a single shift, also keeping site disruption to a minimum. HMS offer a fully comprehensive in-house installation, enabling customers to procure with confidence from a single source, supported with guarantees for quality of material and workmanship.
Not just used for commercial projects, we are pleased to supply and install to domestic sites such as around swing sets, slides, and other areas where potential fall risk may be of concern. Thanks to its easy application to a well compacted sub-base, it allows ground preparation to be kept to a minimum. The range is available in neutral earth tones as well as the more traditional bright blends, providing a safety solution for a range of requirements and customers.
Lightweight in its construction, our EPDM Decra®Play surfacing is also suitable for roof terraces and other areas where hard landscaping is required but weight is a consideration.
