A great alternative to our rubber floors, Stonex resin flooring is the ideal surfacing for high traffic areas in both domestic and commercial settings, indoors and outside and within both wet and dry environments.

Stonex resin bound gravel is especially popular for use in resin driveways.

What are the advantages of resin bound gravel surfacing?

Firstly, it’s a seamless surface, that has all the aesthetic qualities of a traditional loose aggregate driveway, without the headaches. It is laid on concrete or asphalt.

Secondly, it is extremely ecomomical as a choice for external paving/surfacing, paths, floors and drives. It’s low maintenance, chemical resistant and UV stability, means it needs very little care other than cleaning.

Thirdly, it’s extremely versatile. Externally, it’s great in driveways, replicating the look of loose chipping surfacing, and available in a huge range of colour finishes. Internally, with smaller size coloured aggregate, and a polished finish, it becomes an extremely hard wearing floor surface that is ideally suited to a wide range of situations from kitchens & bathrooms through to commercial showrooms, restaurants and more.

How easy is it to install resin flooring?

While our experienced installation teams are quick & tidy, resin flooring  is a wet poured material which requires skilled and experienced operatives, so the quality fof finish is dependent on the skill & experience of the installers. Thankfully, our in house teams are highly trained & experienced and work with this material every day (This is our speciality – we don’t do block paving or Tarmac drives like other companies).

As with many things, the key to a successful project is in the preparation. 

What are the advantages of resin bound gravel surfacing?

Are Resin bonded driveways the same as resin bound?
No. With bonded systems, liquid resin is applied to the base, then stone aggregate is scattered into the surface , and any excess is brushed off once dry. Consequently bonded surfacing is not water permeable, it’s a much rougher surface, and potentially stones can become loose.

With bound resin surfaces, the stone is completely encapsulated in resin, unlike bonded systems. Once every particle is completely covered, we lay it to a depth of between 12mm -24mm.
