Bound Gravel is a high-performance SUDS compliant, porous aggregate bound system.
Available in a range of colours and blends, the gravel surface is extremely hard wearing and provides visually stunning finishes. Unlike block paving, bound gravel is slip-resistant, weed resistant, and does not sink under extended use. This makes it the ideal, low-maintenance surface for driveways, pathways and walkways.
Resin Bound Gravel is bound with resin to form a smooth, natural appearance. Coloured gravel can be used to incorporate graphics and designs or to match exterior masonry. After months of testing the BBA have endorsed the system for its high strength, SUDS compliance, and its excellent track record.
BOUND GRAVEL INSTALLATION
Installers arrive on site wearing full PPE and sign in if required. Once equipment has been unloaded, installers measure area, take photos, check dips and report temperature.
The area is then dried with a gas lance and cleared of leaves and debris. Edges are primed twice.
Materials are mixed with a resin-binder and transported by wheelbarrow to the area for laying. The mixture of gravel and resin is levelled to the required thickness, and a screed, roller or hand trowel is used to smooth and lightly compact the surface to gain an even, level finish.
The surface is ready to use the following day.
