Resin bound surfacing is a new system that that you will now see being used more and more in the UK, and the market for this has grown steadily over the last five years.
One of the main reasons for this surfacing to become so popular is its permeability and complying with the SUD’s regulations that came into effect in Oct 2008. These rules were introduced to help prevent localised flooding by restricting people from installing non-permeable surfaces in an area of what was once permeable ground, for example what was once lawn then being covered by concrete block paving, therefore preventing the water from entering the water table and overwhelming highway systems with this huge ‘funnel’ effect into the highways drains.
The Resin Bound system if installed correctly, consists of a strong, long lasting foundation that is fully permeable thus allowing water back into the ground, but offering at the same time an attractive, highly appealing and hard wearing surface without any need for an unsightly linear drainage channel or drainage considerations at the front of the property adjoining the highway. The layer of Resin Bound Stone is 15-18mm laid onto a primed, open grade Tarmac base.
The finish stone is washed and dried and supplied in 25kg bags, which is then mixed with a carefully calculated amount of resin glues and hardeners. All glues Jamescape use are a premium, fully UV resistant non-yellowing system and of the thousands of square metres we have installed, never have our surfaces failed with our supplied glues. The rumours of Resin Bound surfacing cracking and not lasting the test of time are usually told by companies that haven’t invested the time and money into the training to be able install this superb product.
