Marketed in some quarters as ‘stone carpet’, bound resin surfacing is created using a forced action mixer to combine durable aggregate with a high performance mixing resin. When overlaid on a tarmac or concrete bed, these resin bound systems Preston developers love form an attractive and functional layer suitable for footpaths, driveways, small car parks, and all kinds of outdoor pedestrianised areas. At MCG we supply resin bound driveways Preston customers can be proud of, and which will reflect well on your business and premises.
The resin bound flooring systems Preston companies use have several advantages over the common alternatives such as block paving, concrete and tarmac. For example, it is the only solution which is inherently slip resistant in wet conditions due to the texture of the aggregate which gives it its strength. It is also weed and frost resistant, thereby eliminating two further common causes of falls on hard surfaces. And unlike concrete or block paving, it can be installed seamlessly over any area, thereby improving not only its aesthetic qualities but also preventing gradual damage due to plant growth or freeze-thaw action.
One of the most significant features of the resin bound flooring Preston premises benefit from is that it is SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System) compliant. Once set, a resin bound surface is permeable, meaning water can easily drain away through the top layer to the base layer below. This means that when applied to a carefully cambered substrate, water will never pool to form puddles, and potential flood risks are alleviated.
One misapprehension about resin bound flooring Preston builders may be under is that it is the same as resin bonded flooring. In fact, resin bonded flooring offer few of the advantages discussed above – please contact us for more information on these contrasting systems.
