Access for All in Anglesey

RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing has provided a slip-resistant, durable, fast curing surfacing at Cemaes Bay, Anglesey.

RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing has been installed at Cemaes Bay, Anglesey as part of a large development project by the County Council. The £6.9m coastal environmental project aims to develop on-shore and off-shore facilities to maximise economic benefits and impacts from the coastline of Anglesey. As part of the project an ‘access for all beach’ was created, which involved resurfacing the area, improving access to the beach and installing new street furniture. The new beach access is likely to attract many visitors annually but, because of its proximity to the sea will frequently become wet, so it was necessary for any surfacing to be slip-resistant and durable. RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing was specified for the resurfaced areas with a 1-3mm Brittany Bronze aggregate. The area was excavated prior to laying the asphalt base on which the resin bonded surfacing was applied. Ronacrete’s RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing is a hardwearing surfacing system composed of a resin base and natural aggregates that offers excellent slip-resistance tested to BS 8204-6:2008 A1:2010 Appendix B. It can withstand heavy footfall year after year and is used in a variety of projects with high visitor numbers, including the ramps at Wembley Stadium. As the asphalt’s surface was open textured, RonaDeck Resin Bonded Scratch Coat was applied producing a smooth substrate for the surfacing. The two component resin was mixed with a drill and paddle mixer and applied by roller to the substrate. The aggregate was immediately cast into the resin and left to cure for four hours. After removal of loose aggregate, the surfaced area was ready for use. RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing is DDA compliant, a requirement of an ‘access for all beach’ providing a level surface that is slip resistant and wheelchair user friendly. RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing is also suitable for vehicle traffic.
