Resin Bound Gravel: Ideal Application for Desirable Driveways & Perfect Pathways
A decorative resin bound gravel surfacing system ideal for driveways, car parks, pathways and pool surrounds. Rok-bound or Resin Bound Gravel as it is commonly known is porous, allowing water to percolate through the surface and beyond when a suitable base build-up has been installed making it SuDs compliant. The natural aggregate is mixed with a resin binder and applied to the surface at the required depth.
Often confused with resin bonded gravel our bound gravel is an aggregate which is then blended within a resin prior to being applied to site; of course we offer a full range of aggregates in a range of colours and styles so there is plenty of choice available. Once the bound gravel is pre-mixed with the resin it is then applied to a prepared surface and levelled to achieve a smooth surface finish.
Design elements such as company logos, numbers or lettering can be incorporated into the surface using contrasting stone colours. As with all surfaces being installed we need to ensure that the base layer is suitable prior to application.
We will visit the site for a full inspection prior to any bound gravel surface being laid to ensure the perfect finish is always achieved. Our bound gravel is of extremely high quality which cannot always be guaranteed elsewhere and we have a number of samples which are available on request.
Rok Bond is very popular bound gravel and is typically used for applications such as driveways, car parks and pathways because of its natural appearance and durability. It has the ability to be able to handle vehicles being driven over it and other demanding tasks as well as being able to be applied over existing concrete or macadam providing it’s in suitable order.
Whatever the weather resin bound gravel is a hardworking surface which will continue to look good and it’s porous which means it will let water and other liquid through and this will not damage the surface.
A problem with traditional gravel driveways it that the gravel can wash away or move around however, with resin bound driveways the surface is fixed and so doesn’t move or wash away with any rain or flooding. What is great about bound gravel is that it’s extremely easy to maintain and easy to clean.
If you are looking for a smooth finish with no loose stones then resin bound gravel is the surface for you; if you’re not sure what you’re looking for then why not give us a call and see what we can do for you.
