RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing, part of a refurbishment project by Torridge District Council.
The promenade was surfaced by Avalon Surfacing using RonaDeck Resin
Bound Surfacing by Ronacrete, who created two unique aggregate blends
for the project. A golden aggregate blend covering 636 square metres and
a further 668 square metres of a yellow aggregate blend was laid to the
village green footpaths.
were approached by Torridge District Council for samples of aggregate
mixes and costings for the project, Avalon Surfacing turned to Ronacrete
for assistance and were able to respond quickly with suitable colour
suggestions and a favourable pricing structure.
The brief from the council was to give ‘a modern new finish to the
promenade and footpaths to replace the tired grey tarmac that had been
there for many years’
The gold and yellow combination gives a warm glow to the area even to
the area even in the dullest of summer weather a .colourful contrast to
the red pirate ship in the children’s play area!
"Ronacrete responded quickly providing us with samples of unique
colour blends to match the councils requirements and the competiive
pricing ensured we won the contract." - Chris Masters, Avalon Surfacing
The RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing system is supplied as a two component
UV stable polyurethane resin together with a blend of kiln-dried
aggregates for on-site mixing in a forced action mixer. The two resin
components were mixed by Avalon with a drill and paddle before being
added to the coloured aggregate in a high capacity forced action mixer.
As soon as the aggregate was fully coated with resin, the mixed material
was discharged from the mixer and trowel applied at a thickness of 12mm
onto the prepared surface. The finished system was ready for foot
traffic within four hours of being laid.
RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing is a resin and aggregate mix which
creates a hard wearing alternative to traditional paving and comes with a
15 year guarantee when laid by a Ronacrete Approved Contractor such as
Avalon Surfacing. The resin is UV resistant so it will not darken or
‘yellow’ when exposed to sunlight, ensuring that the natural colour of
the aggregate does not alter as the surfacing ages. The surfacing is
also SuDS compliant, as it has a porous structure which prevents surface
ponding of rainwater and will allow water to drain naturally when part
of a SuDS compliant construction.
The aggregate provides slip-resistance, while the elasticity of the
resin creates a ‘give’ to the surface, meaning that holiday makers and
local residents in Westward Ho! can have a safe and comfortable walking
experience which is also pleasing to the eye.
