Driveway – Cuffley

A property within a development of quality eco-homes in Cuffley, Hertfordshire has extended its green credentials by having SuDS compliant RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing laid to the front driveway and to paths on either side of the ‘high spec’ residence.

 

Ronacrete Approved Contractors ARC Surfacing laid approximately 200 square metres of RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing, using a 6mm Maple Glow aggregate which was chosen from the RonaDeck range of natural aggregate blends, each formulated for strength and appearance. The surfacing will not discolour over time because the specially formulated polyurethane resin does not yellow or darken when exposed to Ultra Violet light.

 

To create a firm foundation for the resin bound paving ARC Surfacing first laid a sound base of asphalt.  After allowing this time to harden they mixed the RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing two-component resin together with the supplied blended kiln-dried aggregate and laid it by trowel at 18mm thick.

 

RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing complies with SuDS regulations which requires that rain water can pass through the aggregate and resin surface into the earth below, allowing it to flow into natural water courses or ground drainage systems. Its porous design ensures water can quickly and easily permeate the surface and allow homeowners to do their part to protect the environment.
