Recycled rubber chippings for a roof terrace
A decorative material that would improve the aesthetic of the area
Long-lasting and lightweight material
Material that wouldn’t hold moisture
Good insulating material
A material that had a cushion effect if someone tripped or fell.
The finished area meets all of the clients’ criteria and has transformed the area. The resultant surface is soft to walk on and dries quickly after rain. Being a lightweight product it adds little to the load-bearing capacity of the roof.
The chippings can be hosed down or brushed, meaning they require minimal maintenance. A more permanent solution is also available in the form of resin bonded rubber mulch, chippings or crumb, this is achieved by mixing the recycled rubber material with a polyurethane resin binder and is laid similarly to laying a screed.
