What is it?

A resin bound system is one which is both UV stable and fully permeable. Designed to be laid on a load bearing Ecogrid base. The finished surface can be either decorative aggregate, rubber crumb in a variety of shades and textures or a mixture of rubber crumb and stone

Excavation is as little as 120mm for standard vehicle domestic applications meaning that there are a number of inherent advantages:

  • Less excavation therefore less waste to landfill and quicker preparation
  • Less requirement for hard-core
  • Swift installation of the entire base system at 100 metres per man per hour
  • No down time due to inclement weather as the base can be laid in the wet
  • No inconvenience to clients as the grids are immediately load bearing
  • Resin bound surface is cured in less than four hours in normal circumstances

Once the Ecogrid is laid, any shapes or angular cuts can be put in with a standard angle grinder, the grids will cut at walking pace. The Ecogrid system is then edged with a 60mm flexible clip and fix system that is drilled with a 6mm bit and the secure anchors are affixed giving a 20mm edge restraint which then allows an easy guide for the resin bound stone or rubber crumb to be set. Patterns can also be cut in to the surface using the same method.

Where can it be used?

The surfacing can be used for all areas that either require a load bearing, aesthetic and very permeable surface for loadings from a small childrens playground or sports surface to cars of to 7.5 tonnes.

How to?

Once the surface has been excavated and  prepared, the grids are swiftly laid on the screed level, curves are formed with our unique curving piece. A retaining edge strip and secure anchor system is available to form a barrier, impeding the travelling of infill material away from the surface (only necessary if you want to’override’ the grid surface with stone.  It should be noted that the fill material should be sharp angular stone and range from 5-10mm. River bed or rounded stone can be used but this material doses not lock together as well as angular.

Options?

We offer a wide variety of aggregate options and blends thereof in all naturally shaded options.

Accessories?

We supply a firm clip and fix edging system that offers a guide to ensure continuous levels across surfaces as well as the ability to cut patterns and curves to surfaces.

We also have a unique curving piece to ensure continuous curving of grid based surfaces without the need for cutting.
