Clearmac® Delivers Rapid Solution for Barnet School

By 9th January 2017 April 1st, 2019 No Comments

A new hard-wearing, permeable and SuDS compatible surface has been installed at a school in North London in just one day, thanks to the Clearmac® resin surface dressing system from Gaysha.

Delivered by hard landscaping specialist, Focus Paving, the project followed a major refurbishment and extension scheme at Queen Elizabeth Boys’ School in Barnet, which was founded in 1573.

The school’s Heard Building has been transformed into a new home for the school’s English department and a new landscaped area was required to complete the scheme.

The surface dressing needed to be completed during the weekend while the school was closed to students and the Clearmac® system provided the ideal rapid install, low maintenance and high quality aesthetic solution.

Gaysha installed 135m2 of 6mm Clearmac® resin bound paving in red granite blend. The cold-applied surface combines graded aggregates with a clear polyurethane resin binder that allows the aggregate colour to show through. The result is a weather and UV resistant surface which does not require regular maintenance and is free from trip hazards.

Comments Mick from Focus Paving: “We needed a product that could be applied quickly, while offering an extended surface life, a robust surface and a high-quality appearance, aligned to the prestige of the school and the construction project.

“Clearmac® from Gaysha offered the ideal response and will offer a long-term, low maintenance solution, free from trip hazards and ideally suited to the heavy footfall of a school environment.”
