RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing – a pathway to innovation

Ronacrete has showcased its sustainable, permeable paving system, RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing and its EcoBound range at the BRE Innovation Park in Watford.

The BRE Innovation Park promotes a sustainable and low carbon built environment by housing some of the world’s most sustainable buildings and providing a testing ground for new products and construction systems. Ronacrete replaced the existing path (a basic mix of type one and sand) with a visually striking resin bound pathway using a selection of aggregate blends from the range – Autumn Harvest, Lunar, Terracotta Snow, Maple Harvest and Quartz Parallel. 20mm RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing was installed on to EcoGrid (ground stabalisation system made from 100% recycled plastic) which was then filled with recycled aggregates. This provided a fully permeable SuDS compliant surfacing system. Ronacrete also agreed to replace the surfacing of the outdoor gym area which consisted of bark and a very hard type one aggregate with a UV stable rubber granule surfacing system. A depth of 120mm was excavated and once levelled, a geotextile membrane was rolled out. A 100mm shockpad was then installed on to the membrane. The shockpad is a combination of black rubber granules made from recycled truck tyre carcases mixed with resin and then raked out on to the surface and left to cure over night. Yellow, blue, green and red rubber granules were then used as a wearing surface to provide decoration.
