Rubber Pathways and Safe Play Area Surfaces
We produce an environmentally friendly porous paving solution for footpaths, rubber driveways and car parks for the both residential and commercial markets. Fully SUDS compliant,we use a combination of resins to bond rubber to create a sub base.
The voids in the sub base retain water until it can drain naturally back into the water table, preventing flash flooding. We then use an aggregate in a colour of your choice mixed with resin and bond it on to the rubber sub base to prevent cracking and movement.The finished result is a stunning, virtually maintenance free, hard wearing finish.
The UK discards over 48 million tyres each year. These tyres are no longer allowed into landfill sites, and present a major environmental problem. Sudscape helps address this problem by using at least 3 crumbed tyres per square meter in the sub base of our porous paving.
Because it is totally porous, unlike other resin finished paving, it allows rain water to be held within the voids in the rubber base, slowing down water until it can be absorbed back into the water table.
On surfaces like tarmac and concrete, pollutants like brake dust are washed straight in to drains and in turn into our water courses causing harm to wildlife. Sudscape prevents this from happening as the rubber helps filters out pollutants.
American research has shown that when water flows through the rubber sub base and hard standing,there is a reduction of 25% nitrates and further 30% reduction in phosphates.
It is virtually maintenance free needing only the occasional power wash or brushing with stiff broom to maintain a pristine finish.
