We have just spent 3 weeks working in Victoria installing 3 large rubber soft fall playgrounds for Louds of Melbourne. It was an interesting experience to work with the company that pioneered the wetpour rubber industry in Australia. They were the company that built the 1956 Olympic track in Melbourne and the company itself has been around for over a hundred years. Rob and John are the owners and they looked after us very well.
It was good to see that they only wanted the very best for their clients. Not only do they want the best installers, they also only use the very best EPDM softfall rubber and wetpour materials available. If you are located in Victoria I can thoroughly recommend their professionalism.
Whilst we were there we had the opportunity to work on a large Olympic sized EPDM rubber running track which Louds were building in central Melbourne. We worked there with Graham, an excellent wetpour rubber installer whom I had first met over 5 years ago whilst working on a rubber softfall playground in Gosford. We also met Sony and Tink, two specialists sports surface installers and engineers from Malaysia, who fly all over the world to work on large rubber or synthetic grass projects. These guys had each installed over a million square metres of wetpour rubber. Now that is a serious amount of rubber.
It was a great opportunity teaming up with and learning from some of the best rubber installers in the world, including my good friend Wick, from Wick’s Wetpour Rubber. No matter how long you have been installing softfall synthetic surfaces for, you can always learn more.
Thanks to all involved for another sucessful project.
