Porous asphalt for playgrounds


ULTIPLAY POROUS is a porous asphalt for Playgrounds.

Specifically developed for play and recreational areas, ULTIPLAY POROUS is a specialist asphalt with an open, porous structure and excellent drainage characteristics. It eliminates the problem of surface water, improving safety and extending playing time. 

Using the latest porous asphalt technology and a modified binder, ULTIPLAY POROUS provides effective drainage, along with impressive resistance to surface wear. As a result ULTIPLAY POROUS eliminates the problem of both standing water and reduces ice formation in cold weather conditions.

ULTIPLAY POROUS is a fast draining playground surface.

Additional info

Using specially selected aggregates and incorporating a binder modifier, ULTIPLAY POROUS provides achieves a more open structure for improved drainage. Where localised flooding is a particular problem, ULTIPLAY POROUS can be used as part of a complete sustainable drainage system, designed and installed by the Tarmac Contracting division.

Safety first. Continuous surface abrasion can tear aggregate from the standard binders. The resulting loose aggregate can cause safety issues, increasing the risk of slips and falls. The modified binder in ULTIPLAY and ULTIPLAY POROUS allows excellent compaction and helps maintain surface cohesion so that aggregate remains locked in place. ULTIPLAY is available with selected aggregates to meet specific site requirements. This includes fine graded limestone that is less abrasive to the skin in the event of a fall. Where ULTIPLAY POROUS is specified, the open structure also eliminates surface water, thereby improving grip and reducing ice formation in cold weather conditions.

ULTIPLAY POROUS is a low maintenance surface. The seasonal threat from frost and weeds can cause severe damage to conventional asphalt surfaces. The expansion of ice generates sufficient force to turn small faults into hazardous cracks. The durable surface of ULTIPLAY and ULTIPLAY POROUS provides enhanced resistance to these seasonal threats. This helps to maintain a safe and stable surface and minimise the need for maintenance and repairs. As a result, playgrounds last longer and budgets can be spent on new equipment rather than repairs.
