Looking to upgrade your driveway and be the envy of your neighbours? Maybe your house is up for sale and you’re trying to find the perfect way to create a perfect, long-lasting impression from the front of your home?
Resin Bound surfacing continues to take the landscaping industry by storm and is the fastest growing surfacing application of the past five years.
Kiki Tsoulouhopoulos from Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates tells The Landscaper Magazine why…
A stunning alternative to block paving, macadam concrete or loose gravel, resin bound gravel is viewed by many landscape designers and contractors as an integral feature of landscaping. It is an ideal solution for residential driveways, paths and patios as well as commercial car parks, sports centres and holiday parks. Learn more about it here.
It instantly boosts kerb appeal and its hard-wearing, natural finish combined with a stunning choice of colours creates limitless design opportunities; from geometric patterns to personalised letters; bespoke logos to contrasting colour blocks. There is a colour and design to suit any style and age of property.
As well as its beauty and aesthetic appeal, resin bound also makes an ideal practical choice. It is permeable and able to absorb up to 850 litres of water per m2 per minute.
As a SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System) compliant solution, it does not require planning permission (providing a porous sub-base or suitable soakaway exists) thus making it ideal for new builds and renovations. Resin-bound is also weed resistant, frost resistant and slip-resistant.
When installing a new driveway, the importance of using clean, dried aggregates and high-quality resin cannot be overemphasized. Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates is the UK manufacturer and home of DALTEX – the UK’s No 1 brand for resin bound systems.
DALTEX dried aggregates are sourced from across Europe and the world. They are meticulously dried and screened to produce a high-quality product, which when combined with high-quality DALTEX UVR stable resin delivers a beautifully consistent resin bound finish, suitable for all projects.
The DALTEX UVR Resin Bound System has been awarded certification by the BBA (the British Board of Agrément) – the highest industry standard available.
The new DALTEX Bespoke range of dried aggregates consists of 46 stunning resin bound colour blends. Colours span the spectrum – from stylish greys and silvers to soft and subtle golds and browns to rich, deep reds and greens. Samples and display cases are available.
The company prides itself on its customer service and offers 100% stock availability with thousands of tonnes of finished product ready for nationwide next day delivery.
For newcomers, there is much to consider when specifying or installing resin-bound. To assist with this, Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates runs a specially developed training course from its purpose-built facility in Derbyshire.
