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
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.
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.
We offer a wide variety of aggregate options and blends thereof in all naturally shaded options.
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.
With a medium profile and an incredible load bearing capacity of 500 tonnes per square meter when filled, EcoGrid EH40 is more than capable of withstanding the pressures of a domestic driveway.
With a loading capacity of up to 800 tonnes per square meter when filled, EcoGrid E50 is a heavy hitter that can handle industrial pressure. Whether you have a parking bay for cargo transport or an aircraft landing strip E50 is the grid for the job.
Firstly we would recommend looking at the PDF resources below. These provide a comprehensive guide for the installation of EcoGrid and adding the gravel surface as well as giving real life examples of EcoGrid being used for this task.
