Porosity of RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing demonstrated on the ITV news.


Following the recent floods throughout Britain, Lawrence McGinty the Science and Medical Editor for ITV news visited the BREInnovationPark today to report on “things that can be done now” to prevent flooding.

He demonstrated the porosity of the SuDS compliant resin bound surfacing (RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing) by pouring a bucket of water onto the surface, where it immediately soaked through the system into the earth.

This is what he had to say.

“… it is amazing stuff, when you pour water on it, as I did, it just, as if by magic… it just soaks through straight away into the ground underneath, not into the drains, not into the rivers and not falling, adding to the flood waters.”

RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing was installed at the BREInnovationPark in September 2013. The permeable paving system was installed over the top of EcoGrid; a 100% recycled plastic grid system, which is filled with loose aggregate ensuring the whole system remains permeable. Installation was carried out by Ronacrete Approved Contractor, PJJ Contractors Ltd.
