RTC Safety Surfaces
RTC Safety Surfaces travelled over 200 miles away from their head office to create a fun and engaging wet pour play surface for The Community School of Auchterarder, Perthshire.
Covering a total area size of 417m², the vibrant design consisted of a black roadway with line markings and zebra crossing, chessboard, 1-100 number checkerboard and a crocodile hopscotch.
Onto a prepared sub-base of MOT Type 1 stone, they began the installation by adding a layer of SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber) base. Once this had cured, they applied line markings to the base layer and mapped out the design. Gradually, the top layer of EPDM wet pour was laid within the markings, one colour at a time. Shapes including the road markings and 1-100 numbers on the checkerboard were then carefully hand-cut out by their skilled workforce.
Taking days to complete, their artistically skilled team had installed a wet pour masterpiece.
This project was carried out on behalf of a construction company. However, the headteacher made a special mention about how delighted he was with the installation and how spectacular the area was looking and how it was “going down a treat with staff, children and parents”.
