There are a range of designs available for resin bound aggregate surfaces which can be tailored to suit the requirements of each project.
The installation process of resin bound stone means that it can be easily moulded around curves and different shapes to fit perfectly with your chosen design.
We can install resin bound gravel surfaces to a range of outdoor areas including decorative features such as tree pits and pool surrounds to give a durable and porous finish.
Resin bound aggregate design in is used for many projects both commercially and domestically on driveways for traffic use to pathways for pedestrian use. The stone is mixed onsite with stone aggregate and polyurethane binder so the design can be tailored to suit any size or shape.
The design of resin-bound surfaces is endless with many colours to choose from but majority of the time the design specification will want a natural looking bonded stone finish so there is no loose stones. It's important to look after any outdoor surfacing you have so we also offer resin bound gravel maintenance as one of our services to help keep the flooring clean.
The design of resin-bound flooring is installed onto macadam or a solid porous sub base and is becoming very popular because has little maintenance procedures, but will remain tough, resilient, self-draining and durable. The design element of the flooring will obviously influence the prices, costs and quotes of the project so having several multiple colours isn't advised because will inflate the prices to install but also will create several joints on what could be a seamless system otherwise.

Resin-Bonded gravel and resin-bound stone are specified on many new projects in schools, leisure centres, sports clubs and colleges. This is because the specification lends itself well for decorative pathways, walkways, footpaths and recreational areas. With the aggregate system being porous and permeable then this makes the whole specification SUDS compliant meaning no planning permission is needed for projects like driveways with this spec of flooring.
On new constructions the materials comes under the NBS specification design of Q23 Gravel/ Hoggin/ Woodchip/ Roads/ paving/ overlays under the category 225 Wearing Course: Permeable Surfacing. The depths can vary from 14mm depth (2-5mm sized aggregate), 16mm depth (3-6mm sized aggregate) to 50mm tree pits specification (using a 10mm sized aggregate). The difference in resin-bound surfacing depths is to do with the project design and basically what the surfacing is being utilised for because some areas might be designed for pedestrian use where others could be the specification for heavy use traffic. Each of the resin-bound gravel surfaces we install is a SuDS compliant paving type which means they allow for efficient water drainage in urban areas.
Resin stone surfacing is installed in many gravel aggregates. The porous surface style is created by combining the chosen stone with a specialist resin and using it to create a smooth and appealing surface. This bound paving is crack resistant and needs little servicing. A macadam sub base is well suited for the gravel; due to the fact it is permeable and is Sustainable Urban Drainage System compliant, letting the fluids to pass through without difficulty. This can be used for numerous local places, like drives and swimming pool areas and the surrounding areas. Due to its level textured finish, the resin bound surface is good for use with wheelchairs, additionally, the porous properties help prevent rain water build-up. Regular care is needed to keep the surface in good shape and appearing brand new. If a servicing plan is designed, your surface’s life span will immediately improve, making the floor safe to use. It is vital that you do not wait for the surface to get slippery before beginning the maintenance program because this may make the flooring unsafe. To keep the gravel paving thoroughly clean, we propose consistent care to take away leaves or debris. Cleaning is necessary, so the permeability isn't altered and therefore the surface continues to be SUDS certified. A typical weed killer may be utilised for the surface if moss appear, ensure not to make use of oil based contamination killer as this could cause harm to the flooring.
If you are looking how to clean the stone, we would recommend following these steps:
Contamination and algae growth could be avoidable with a gentle power clean to keep it closest to the original surfacing. Warm water can be utilized with a cleaning soap to clean up the resin-bound flooring surfaces, but very hot fluids ought not to be utilized as this could possibly cause damage. To get rid of snow or ice from your paving, we would suggest working with a rubberized remover or mild bristled brush to minimise any problems on the aggregates. The standards of resin-bound gravel flooring may be fitted to any sort of place shape or size simply because stones and binder are mixed on-site. The pattern is created on a hard surface or strong porous foundation and will certainly remain hard and strong whilst in need of very little routine service.
