What is Rubaroc?
Rubaroc is a durable safety surface, made from granulated rubber (EPDM) that is troweled into place.
This surface is flexible, and stretches and moves with cracked concrete, without separating. Cracks in your pool deck can be covered up, and never re-appear.
Are Different Colours Available?
Yes. UV Pools professionals can mix almost any colour combination to suit your backyard decor. We have all of the primary colours available, and ratio them to create your desired colour.
What Makes Rubaroc a Safety Surface?
Rubaroc is soft to walk upon, and is grippy even when wet. The surrounding area of your pool is safe and slip-resistant when Rubaroc is applied.
How Much Does Rubaroc Cost?
There are variables which affect the cost, however, to coat a standard sized pool deck in Winnipeg will cost around $4,500.
Does Rubaroc Get Hot in the Summer?
Luckily, Rubaroc has a porous surface, allowing it to stay as cool – or cooler – than concrete on hot summer days.
Is Rubaroc Maintenance Free?
Yes. There is no re-sealing or re-applying needed.
How Do I Clean Rubaroc?
To clean, simply sweep, wash down, or pressure wash the Rubaroc surface.
The 3 Main Types of Rubber
EDPM Rubber: Rubaroc virgin EPDM material and resins are made in Germany to strict specifications. EPDM is produced and coloured correctly, and is one of the highest quality and longest lasting rubbers available.
Pre-cycled EPDM Rubber: This rubber is second best, as it is still made from virgin materials however can contain impurities. This rubber may fade faster over time, and the colour range is limited.
SBR – Recycled Car Tires: This rubber material is only good as a base material. There are rubber paving companies in Winnipeg that use this rubber, and dye it to provide colour. It is not a long lasting solution, and smells like car tires in the summer heat.
Why We Use Rubaroc Exclusively
Part of transforming your yard to a backyard oasis is considering the area surrounding your pool.
Concrete is functional, but gets extremely hot in the summer, requiring you to wear sandals to prevent burned feet. It is also prone to cracking, especially during our harsh Winnipeg winters.
Instead, imagine a soft, cool surface that is comfortable to walk on in barefeet, and will withstand any cracking. A surface like this exists – and it’s Rubaroc.
UV Pools is proud to offer Rubaroc, made from a special rubber known as premium grade granulated EPDM, mixed with flexible urethane, which is applied to the existing concrete.
