AddagripTerracoAddagrip, the leading resin surfacing specialists, are delighted to announce their latest development, an innovative, patented paving system providing a decorative and natural-looking rustic surface. Terrabase Rustic is a permeable, resin bound surface that is ideal for pedestrian footpaths and can be installed with minimum disruption.

Terrabase Rustic is unique in that it can be applied directly onto most surfaces and gradients, resulting in a faster and more cost efficient installation. In some cases it can even be installed directly onto the ground, with minimum digging or edging required. Terrabase Rustic’s structured build-up ensures a SuDs compliant surface that allows water to drain through the product, offering strength and durability.

“One of the main benefits of the Terrabase Rustic Resin Bound Surfacing system is that it requires no large machinery to install,” says Roger Critchley, Managing Director of Addagrip, “There is no asphalt sub-base or concrete requirement and edging is part of the product, meaning installation is fast and efficient.”

Terrabase Rustic was selected for the pathway surfacing when Matthew Keightley’s award-winning ‘Hope on the Horizon’ garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014, designed in aid of Help for Heroes, was relocated to Chavasse VC House Recovery Centre, Colchester.

Terrabase Rustic has also been installed at Baldwin Gate Nature Reserve in Staffordshire, replacing 210m2 of existingself-binding gravel pathway with Terrabase Rustic Gold.

Key benefits of Terrabase Rustic:

– Strength and durability – once the Terrabase Rustic has been installed it will provide an integrated and slightly flexible surface to resist cracking

– SuDS compliant porous surface – allowing a free draining surface vertically and during heavier down pours, the rain will also drain away laterally

– Requires no large machinery to install – minimum disruption and fast installation

– No asphalt sub-base or concrete requirement

– Provides a natural looking, seamless finish in a range of four colours.
