‘Twickers’ gives it a try
Twickenham Stadium, the largest rugby union stadium in the United Kingdom, was recently enlarged to seat 82,000 making it the second largest UK stadium, second only to Wembley.
‘Twickers’ is home to Rugby Football Union and therefore a primary venue for rugby union including the 6 Nations Championship. The stadium is considered an icon of English rugby and hosts other major concert events such as The Rolling Stones, Genesis, U2 and Eagles.
Recently the tarmac paving outside the stadium was renewed and paths and walkways were applied on top of the new tarmac.
Ronacrete’s RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing System was applied at a thickness of 15mm by contractors F M Conway Ltd to create decorative, slip-resistant pavements for the sports, music and other fans who use the stadium’s facilities every week.
RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing System was supplied in easy to use packaging comprising a two-component polyurethane resin together with aggregates for easy on-site mixing in a forced action mixer. The two component non-yellowing resin was mixed with a drill and paddle mixer and added to the dry aggregate, mixed and then laid onto the prepared surface.
Four hours until footsteps
Within just four hours the new surface was ready for the feet of the famous and of their many fans.
Importantly it satisfies the SuDS regulations allowing rainwater to quickly and easily drain through the permeable surface, is slip resistant and is quick and easy to lay.
