Going Green at the Seafront

Eco Resin Bound Approved Contractor Avalon Surfacing has transformed the promenade and village green footpaths at Westward Ho! seafront by laying EcoBound Resin Bound Surfacing, part of a refurbishment project by Torridge District Council.


The promenade was surfaced by Avalon Surfacing using EcoBound Resin Bound Surfacing, 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.


When Avalon Surfacing were approached by Torridge District Council for samples of aggregate mixes and costings for the project, Avalon Surfacing turned to Eco Resin Bound Ltd 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 in the dullest of summer weather. A colourful contrast to the red pirate ship in the children’s play area!


The EcoBound 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.
