BBA certification received for Resin Bound Surfacing range.
Addagrip Terraco Ltd are delighted to have received BBA certification for their Addaset, Addabound and Terrabound Resin Bound surfaces, making them the first and only Resin Bound Surfacing manufacturer to achieve this standard.
BBA certification is widely known throughout the construction industry as a symbol of quality and reassurance. It is a vital ingredient for product manufacturers to help ensure acceptance with specifiers, building control, Local Authorities and insurers. The BBA have worked with Addagrip to achieve the approval of their Resin Bound Surfacing through the BBA’s robust testing and assessment schemes.
Roger Critchley, Managing Director of Addagrip Terraco Ltd, says “With the continuing growth in the use of seamless Resin Bound Surfacing over the last 10 years, we have seen many new suppliers, manufacturers and DIY suppliers enter the marketplace. The BBA accreditation will set a benchmark for quality resin bound products and installations within the industry. The Addagrip Terraco Resin Bound products are a complete resin and aggregate system, installed by an Addagrip approved contractor to ensure that the correct ratio of resin to aggregate is achieved and the product installed according to our specific guidelines.
Gaining the BBA certification has been a long process as we are the first company to invest in what we see as a very significant step forward in the Resin Bound industry. The BBA carried out site visits, inspecting old installations in order to confirm and check their condition after many years use, as well as visiting a live installation to witness the mixing and application process. A further range of independent product testing was also carried out which included permeability testing, as Resin Bound Surfacing is regularly used on SUDS-based schemes.”
Addagrip Terraco Ltd views the BBA certification as a major step forward and one that could be potentially game changing for the Resin Bound industry.
Receiving this accreditation follows a busy year for Addagrip, having worked on many prestigious projects in 2015, including the largest ever Resin Bound Surfacing order to Azerbaijan and providing a bespoke Addabound Resin Bound finish for the UAE Pavilion at the World Expo, Milan. Over 3,000 sqm of Terrabase Rustic was supplied for the new ‘Broad Walk’ project at Kew Gardens, which has created the longest double herbaceous borders in the UK. In addition, over 100,000 sqm of Addagrip’s 1000 System was supplied to treat and protect concrete airfield pavements in the Falkland Islands.
