Rubber Surface Installation Process

The 4 Stage Installation Process

Stage 1 - Excavation

Site excavation may be required prior to commencing the sub base layer to achieve a finished surface level.

When replacing existing softfall mulch with a Rubberworx surface it is important to excavate down to a firm base ensuring to remove all loose mulch. Typically the softfall mulch will be at a 300mm depth.

Stage 2 - Sub Base

The Rubberworx Wet Pour system is applied to concrete or, where restricted by budget or site-specific requirements, cement stabilised FCR sub base. We recommend the following;

  1. 75mm Concrete 25Mpa
    Reinforced with mesh
    25mm C Class Rock sub layer

  2. 100mm B Class FCR
    3% Cement Stabilised

It is essential that the sub base been firm and stable to ensure the longevity of the Rubberworx surface.

Stage 3 - Impact Attenuation Layer (when applicable)

Certain installations require a dual layer system, incorporating a cushioned layer to achieve a fall height requirement or simply for added comfort underfoot.

Stage 4 - Wearing Layer

Applied in either our RPCR (recycled) or EPDM (synthetic) products, the wearing layer is the resilient top layer with the versatility to create custom shapes and designs.
