Eco Resin Bound Surfacing has been used in Shoreditch Park to provide a strong base for the docking station for Barclays Cycle Hire bicycles or as they are generally known Boris’s bikes.
Eco Resin Bound Surfacing provides an attractive slip-resistant alternative to traditional paving and the permeability of the SuDs compliant system prevents pooling of surface water, keeping paths puddle free. The resistance of the resin to ultra-violet light ensures that the resin will not yellow or darken and will remain elastic, lengthening the service life of the system which is strong enough to stand light vehicle traffic, heavy footfall and most certainly bicycles.
Eco Resin Bound systems are being applied across London boroughs as councils find out about the benefits of the SuDS compliant resin bound and tree pit systems. The London Borough of Hackney has made extensive use of RonaDeck Eco Tree Pit Systems to protect trees within the borough and tree pit has also been used in neighbouring Islington. One of the largest resin bound surfacing projects took place at Shepherd’s Bush Green in the Borough of Hammersmith where over 7,500 metres have been laid. The Queen’s Walk along the South Bank in the Borough of Southwark was resin bound in time for the Jubilee Pageant part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Gillshill Primary School in Hull has had its playground resurfaced and enhanced with the application of RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing by Route One Highways.
Architect Adrian Richmond of the NPS Group chose three shades of aggregate to create an inviting entrance to the school. Sesame Gold was laid to 20m2, Collux Dark Blue to a further 22 m2 and the largest area covering 82 m2 was surfaced with Honey Jerez Yellow.
The RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing System was supplied as a two-component UV stable polyurethane resin, the two components were mixed with a slow speed drill and paddle before being added to a forced action mixer containing the aggregate blend. Ronacrete Approved Contractor Route One Highways spread the RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing to level and smoothed the surface with a steel float. The finished surface was ready for the feet of many children within four hours.
RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing satisfies SuDS requirements, allowing rainwater to quickly and easily drain through the porous surface, avoiding puddling. Slip testing shows risk of slip to be generally low, obviously an important consideration for a school playground.
