Resin Drives

Resin Bound

Overview

This type of paving is made from a mixture of shingle, quartz or crushed granite. The elements are pushed through a mix process to ensure that each grain is coated with a clear UV stable polymer resin.


Water Penetrable


However, resin bound surfaces allow water to drain through, acting as a sieve and allowing the water to flow naturally into the water table.



 

Additional Information

A permeable resin bound driveway enables water to drain away to the water table, not allowing surface run-off and ensuring the sustainability to the surrounding planted areas.

Installation times are greatly reduced when compared with block paving and other driveway installations. 

Resin Bound surfaces can be applied in various shapes, large or small areas.

 The aggregate is available in a wide variety of shapes and colours.

Why use a Permeable Surface for my Drive?

There have been recent changes made to planning permission law, and in particular, new legislation has been introduced to reduce the amount of surface run off water and the risk of floods in settlements across the UK.

Beginning in 2008, if a new driveway project or front paved area uses a permeable surfacing system such as resin bound gravel you will not require planning permission.

Resin style paving avoids not only the need for planning permission, but also the need for additional drainage systems.

Resin Bound Driveway

BEFORE

The concrete driveway was looking worn with cracks appearing.

The space to the right of the driveway had also seen better days.

The area was cleaned and prepared for the resin bound surface, including extending to the right of the driveway.

AFTER

The Resin Bound Surface was installed, continuing to the front door and extending to the side of the original driveway, thus having a larger area to park on.
