Resin bound driveways are a permeable driveway solution made from a mixture of natural aggregates in a clear resin.
During installation, every stone particle will be covered in resin before being placed onto a stable base. Once finished, the depth of your new resin bound driveway will vary between 12mm and 24mm.
Propave Surfacing offer a great range of designs with many different colours for you to choose from. (Please ask to see our samples) We only use UV Stable resin in our driveways, so that you can be sure that your new driveway won’t change colour. With a smooth and textured appearance, these driveways are an aesthetically pleasing investment. The mix of polyurethane resin and natural aggregate creates a hard wearing surface.
Resin bound driveways are a fully permeable solution which allows water to freely drain through the surface. This meets the requirements of sustainable urban drainage systems(SuDS) standards, which helps to prevent standing water and largely eliminates surface water runoff.
At Propave Surfacing, we work to the British Standard for this type of construction and the specification can be seen below.
- Dig out the old driveway to 9″-10″ where needed.
- Stone up drive area with MOT Limestone 5″-6″.
- Roll in with heavy roller.
