Surface Armouring

Standard Surfacing Diagram

Hydraulically bound aggregate layer design build up diagram

350mm soil enhancement with SUREGROUND™ binder surfaced with 100-150mm Type 1 stone. The stone is then bound with further SUREGROUND™ binder and additional plant is employed to create an extremely robust surface. Suitable for projects up to and exceeding two years.



100-150mm of stone is spread onto the curing enhanced layer.
