Pour In Place
Our pour in place rubber system utilizes the highest quality EPDM or TPV coloured rubber granules and a polyurethane resin binder to create a strong and seamless rubber surface. Pour in place rubber is more versatile, comfortable to walk on and more resilient than stamped concrete or flag stone. Whether covering existing surfaces or creating a brand new area, our rubber provides a durable, non-slip surface that won't crack or flake from the freeze and thaw from the Canadian climate. Completely customizable colour and design options allow for your surface to mirror your personality and needs.
CUSTOM COLOURS & DESIGNS
Mix and match colours and add logos, borders or patterns
Porous surface allows water to drain and prevents ice buildup in winter
COMFORT & CUSHIONING
Varied thicknesses create soft surface to minimize injuries
Turn your pool deck and surrounding areas into a brand new, fun and safe space for yourself, kids, pets and friends to enjoy. The semi-porous, non-slip features of pour in place rubber make it the perfect surface to compliment your pool.
PLAYGROUNDS & DAYCARES
Pour in place rubber provides plenty of traction and softness to any playground or daycare play area to allow kids to play safely, even if they fall. Custom colours and thicknesses means any playground can be as colourful as desired and can meet any fall height requirements.
Slip-resistant rubber surfacing around your pool can give you peace of mind so you can focus on creating a fun, safe learning environment for kids to learn how to swim without worrying about them falling on a slippery tile pool deck.
DRIVEWAYS & GARAGES
Cracked garages and uneven, falling apart asphalt driveways are an eyesore and constantly need fixing. Pour in place rubber is the ideal solution as it easily fills cracks and covers the entire surface to give you a brand new garage or driveway safe from further cracking or shifting.
PATIOS & ENTRYWAYS
The entryway is the first thing everyone sees when coming to your house and crumbling concrete or cracking tile are not only unsafe but also unsightly. Pour in place rubber can cover your entryway with a beautiful, seamless surface with custom colour options to perfectly match your home.

INSTALLATION & MATERIALS
All top coat surfaces are installed with the highest quality EPDM or TPV virgin rubber granules, which are coloured all the way through the granule to ensure the product does not fade over time. Virgin, manufactured granules are used to provide the strongest surface possible and maintain that strength for the duration of the products lifespan.
Base layer surfaces are created using SBR recycled tire rubber granules. SBR granules are black and typically utilized for levelling and for providing extra thickness to give the surface a softer, bouncier feel for extra cushioning and safety.
A polyurethane resin adhesive is used to bond all of the rubber granules to each other as well as bond them to the underlying surface. A clear resin is used which remains clear after curing and being exposed to UV. An ambering resin can also be used which turns a yellowish colour for approximately one year before UV exposure returns it to a clear colour, however this is only recommended for dark colour mixtures which use lots of black rubber to minimize visible ambering. Both resin options provide strong and long-lasting bonds between the rubber granules and the underlying surface.
The underlying surface is first cleaned of all dirt and loose debris before being prepped for installation. Once ready, the surface is primed with a mixture of polyurethane resin and a small amount of a thinning agent to allow the resin to cover the surface more easily and prevent bubbling from excess resin. All edges are primed with straight resin for extra strength. Dry rubber granules are then mixed to the colour ratio decided upon by the customer. Once evenly mixed, resin is added to the rubber granules and left to mix thoroughly and all granules are evenly coated with resin. The resin covered rubber mixture is then poured onto the surface and spread using a trowel to a uniform thickness, typically 3/8". When the rubber is evenly spread and level it is "closed", which means using the trowel to apply pressure to smooth the surface and ensure all rubber granules are tightly bonded to each other and the surface beneath. This process is repeated until the entire area is covered in one seamless surface.
The finished product of poured in place rubber is a seamless, tightly bonded surface with a uniform colour mixture that provides excellent drainage and non-slip properties. The new low maintenance surface is easily cleaned with a power-washer and is anti-microbial and anti-fungal. A properly installed pour in place rubber surface has a lifespan of 20 years or more with a small amount of maintenance. Through regular cleaning (a couple times a year), avoiding damaging the surface, and calling us every 6-7 years to re-roll the surface with resin to maintain the integrity of the surface, your pour-in-place surfacing will provide you with 20+ years of enjoyment.
