RESIN BOUND GRAVEL
Why choosing resin bound gravel?
As a modern and durable alternative to traditional floor coverings, resin bound gravel floor offers many advantages.
On the floor or on the wall, it is very easy to maintain due to its resin base. This product, resistant and durable, is ideal for your development and renovation projects. These advantages make it the material of choice for your terraces, walkways, swimming pool decks, stairs, kitchens, bathrooms, etc.
Resin bound gravel is a good choice for many reasons :
• Wide choice of colours
You can adapt the colour and appearance of your floor to suit your wishes. The marble used for the aggregate makes the flooring decorative and durable.
The polyurethane resin used to gather and protect the mineral aggregate reinforces the flooring. The draining power of the resin bound gravel enables liquids to circulate in the thickness of the material and prevents them from stagnating and forming puddles, making it a non-slippery surface. The material is particularly resistant to impact, weather, frost and UV light in the case of outdoor covering, which significantly increases its lifespan compared to other more “traditional” coverings.
• Ease of maintenance
Stone resin is particularly easy to maintain because of the resin coating. Any surface stains can be removed by cleaning with water (with a hose or a brush). The non-yellowing composition of the resin ensures that the original colour of the aggregate stays the same, even after several years.
Where to lay resin bound gravel?
Resin bound gravel, or marble carpet, can be laid on different types of surfaces.
If you are undertaking a renovation project, you will probably apply your indoor or outdoor resin bound gravel to an existing support. This means that you can lay or have your carpet laid on top of tiles or natural stone. This is an important advantage that can save you valuable time and money by avoiding the need to remove the tiles. However, the old tiles or your concrete slab must be in good enough condition to receive a covering.
During a construction site, the choice of support will depend on the use of the space and its technical constraints. The intervention of a professional may be particularly necessary at this stage to make the right choices.
This material is particularly suitable for outdoor areas. Stone terrace carpeting is suitable for a private terrace or balcony as well as in a professional environment. You can also opt for resin bound gravel to cover your swimming pool deck, but also your driveway, your outside stairs…
It is also very suitable for interior spaces: kitchen, bathroom… Interior resin bound gravel is a modern, refinedand technical type of covering that meets both the needs of resistance and comfort (warm and non-abrasive floor), but also the aesthetic requirements to decorate an important room of your interior.
Professionals such as car dealerships, hotels, restaurants or campsites also particularly appreciate this floor covering for its specific features and its ability to be personalised.
Our different types of resin bound gravel floors
We offer resin bound gravel floors with marble aggregates in different colours, neutral or more vivid, plain or mixed, with the possibility to create a pattern. The mineral aggregate has the advantage of being able to play with shades of marble and quartz. You can thus match your flooring to your interior or exterior decoration. You can also find a suitable floor covering in a professional environment. It is recommended to choose a dark coloured floor covering for an outdoor pathway to hide tyre tracks, but for a terrace or a bathroom floor you can perfectly use colour.
Whether used as indoor or outdoor flooring, marble carpeting adds a touch of originality to your decor.
