Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates – THINKING OF SPECIFYING RESIN BOUND?

Resin Bound is the fastest growing surfacing application in the last 5 years. Thanks to its hardwearing and natural finish it makes a stunning alternative to block paving, tarmac, concrete or loose gravel. As a low maintenance, permeable paving solution, it is fully SUDS compliant making it ideal for new build as well as renovation.  Highly versatile, it can be easily applied to slopes and areas with limited access and is ideal for any size of area – from a small patio or winding path to a grand sweeping driveway. It can be used indoors as well as outdoors and the system easily lends itself to unique design features for highlights or the demarcation of individual areas.
