Self Binding Gravel & Path Toppings
Self Binding Gravel and Path Toppings are unique products favoured by customers who like the natural effect of gravel but with a firmer finish. Self Binding Gravel is widely used around stately homes, heritage properties and woodland paths due to the relatively hard wearing properties the product benefits from. Typically Self Binding Gravels are 10mm to dust graded. Fines are essential to ensure the product compacts.The product is ideal footpaths, bridleways, cyclepaths and golf courses.
The installation of Self Binding Gravel is the most important aspect of its use. All Self Binding Gravels should be laid on top of a firm sub-base consisting of a granular material such as compacted MOT Type 1 or preferably MOT Type 3 applied at a depth suitable for intended traffic. Self Binding Gravel should be laid to a compacted depth of approximately 50mm incorporating a camber or cross-fall to ensure water disperses quickly. The initial layer of Self Binding Gravel should be compacted using a vibratory roller before a final pass is made with the vibration switched off. For the final pass water should be sprayed directly onto the drum of the roller ensuring water volume is sufficient enough to prevent fines from sticking to the drum. Water rolling is essential to ensure sufficient fines are present on the gravel surface to produce a smooth and well bonded finish. See Our Self Binding Gravel Laying Diagram
