SureSet recommends recessed drain covers for a seamless resin bound surface

Most external surfaces have drains and inspection chambers within them – in some cases, this won’t be an issue because the brief is more about the practical than the pretty.

But if you are looking for an aesthetically pleasing finish SureSet Permeable Paving recommend replacing existing industrial looking covers with removable recessed (or inset) trays.

For a resin bound paving installation SureSet generally use a standard recessed tray, made from polypropylene, aluminium or stainless steel. But there is also the option of a permeable recessed tray that features membranes and a perforated base which allows water to slowly filter through to the drain underneath. Both are suitable for pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

Using a recessed tray gives you the option of creating a seamless appearance to the resin bound surface by infilling the tray with the same SureSet aggregate.

With a choice of more than 60 colours and the option of bespoke blends, SureSet also allows you to create contrast, definition or to install a logo or design within the tray.

Manufactured in the UK from natural aggregate, marble or recycled materials and the highest quality resin, SureSet resin bound paving is cold mixed on site using a process that ensures every particle of stone is completely covered in resin. During the laying process, minute voids are created that mimic natural drainage – making SureSet fully permeable.

Guaranteed for 18 years, SureSet delivers a perfectly smooth, accessible finish, strong enough to withstand vehicles. With just occasional sweeping and periodic power washing a SureSet surface provides many years of high-quality performance.
