Rubber-Gravel Mix Overview

Rubber-Gravel Mix (SBRA) is a blend of recycled rubber and natural aggregate with a resin binder to offer a seamless, porous, low maintenance bound surface for pedestrian pathways, cycle tracks, golf courses, patios, courtyards and tree pits.

It can be used as a base underneath products like wet pour, artificial grass or bound gravel, or as a stand-alone surface. Porous and slip resistant, Rubber-Gravel Mix allows for sustainable drainage in cities, towns and countryside.

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 to reduce shockpad shrinkage.

Materials are mixed with a resin-binder and transported by wheelbarrow to the area for laying. The mixture of rubber, aggregate 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 area can be used the following day.

    Millbrook Primary School

    Site Name: Millbrook Primary School
    Location: Wigan
    Surface Type: Rubber-Gravel Mix

    In order to implement the Daily Mile Challenge, Millbrook Primary School required a 540lm x 1.5m all-weather running track which could be installed over the existing sports field in order to be used by pupils and teachers year-round.

    Rubber-Gravel Mix was chosen to create a natural looking, self-cleaning surface which would reduce the impact of any slips, trips or falls.

Rubber-Gravel Mix Case Studies



Q. Will the surface always be porous?
A. As with all new surfacing, maintenance is key. The surface should be swept regularly of leaves to avoid a build-up of debris.

Q. What will happen to SBRA surfacing during times of extreme heat or freezing?
A. As the surfacing has cavitation within the mixture, water will run through the surface and back into the ground. This stops water from pooling on the surface, so causing a freezing problem.

Q. What is the installation temperature of the product?
A. The installation temperature range is 4-27°C.

Q. What effect does weather have on the installation of the product?
A. Should it start to rain during installation, the team would remain on site until conditions changed before continuing with the install. If the product has not yet cured, light rain / showering will not affect the product, as long as it had already been laid.
