Best Sub-Base For My Resin Bound Surface?
Every Resin Bound surface has a sub-base. And every sub-base brings its own benefits to the surfacing job. Below are the 4 most effective sub-bases to lay Resin Bound aggregates over:

1. ASPHALT

Asphalt is a popular sub-base for a lot of resin bound surfaces, mostly due to many surfaces already having it laid way before the installation of the resin aggregates. Having Asphalt underneath your resin bound surface creates an attractive and durable surface that allows the free flow of air and water, whilst also remaining easy to clean.

The typical depth of DekorGrip Resin Bound surfacing:            6mm Resin Bound @ 18mm Depth                                         10mm Resin Bound @ 25mm Depth

A 40mm depth of 10mm open graded asphalt surface course, max 150 Pen to BS EN 13108-1:2006

A 100mm depth of 20mm open graded asphalt base course, max 150 Pen to BS EN 13108-1:2006

2. CONCRETE

Similarly to Asphalt, concrete is often already there when the resin bound surfacing is being installed, making it another popular choice for a resin bound sub-base. A concrete sub-base provides a seamless, porous, and flexible roadway, as well as ensuring a high durability for areas with a lot of traffic.

3. ECOGRID

EcoGrid is a sub-base that reinforces the ground, allowing all types of trafficking - from pedestrians to HGVs. Made from recycled materials, EcoGrid provides an attractive, durable, and permeable surface when installed underneath a resin bound surface, and is quick and easy to install.

4. RUBBERAGG

DekorGrip's RubberAgg system is a permeable paving system which uses a blend of decorative aggregates and recycled rubber granules from used tyres. RubberAgg is suitable for use under many types of vehicular, pedestrian, cycle and equestrian traffic, making it ideal for use on pathways and rural trails.
