Gillshill Primary School, Hull
Gillshill Primary School in Hull has had its playground resurfaced and enhanced with the application of RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing by Route One Highways.
Architect Adrian Richmond of the NPS Group chose three shades of aggregate to create an inviting entrance to the school. Sesame Gold was laid to 20m2, Collux Dark Blue to a further 22 m2 and the largest area covering 82 m2 was surfaced with Honey Jerez Yellow.
The RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing System was supplied as a two-component UV stable polyurethane resin, the two components were mixed with a slow speed drill and paddle before being added to a forced action mixer containing the aggregate blend. Ronacrete Approved Contractor Route One Highways spread the RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing to level and smoothed the surface with a steel float. The finished surface was ready for the feet of many children within four hours.
RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing satisfies SuDS requirements, allowing rainwater to quickly and easily drain through the porous surface, avoiding puddling. Slip testing shows risk of slip to be generally low, obviously an important consideration for a school playground.
