The DALTEX UVR Resin Bound System has been awarded certification by the BBA (the British Board of Agrément) – the highest industry standard available for the resin bound industry.
About the BBA
WHAT IS THE BBA?
BBA certification is widely recognised throughout the construction industry as a symbol of quality and reassurance. It’s a mark of quality, safety and reliability and indicates the product’s fitness-for-purpose, providing peace of mind to building control, government departments, local authorities, architects, specifiers, industry insurers and resin bound contractors and landscapers.
WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE A BBA APPROVED RESIN BOUND SYSTEM
The DALTEX UVR System is a resin bound surfacing system with enhanced UVR resistance for use in domestic driveways, patios, paths, pedestrian areas and lightly trafficked car parks.
The BBA accreditation confirms that the DALTEX UVR System is manufactured and supplied to meet the exacting standards required for strength and stability, durability, permeability and skid resistance.
In order to achieve BBA certification, the DALTEX UVR System has had to undergo stringent testing and pass the necessary standards for:
1. Strength and Stability
Are the systems able to deal with the loads associated with vehicular and pedestrian traffic expected from their intended use?
The assessment has included a rigorous set of mechanical tests to mimic load and volume associated with higher traffic areas.
2. Surface Characteristics
How has the surface been designed to deal with slip and skid resistance?
The assessment considered initial and retained slip and skid resistance by taking into account how abrasion from trafficking will affect this key factor over time.
3. Rainwater Damage
Can the surface eliminate surface water?
Dealing with surface water is an increasing issue around dwellings. Systems can be designed to reduce or eliminate surface ponding.
How long will it last?
Any trafficked system will be subject to varying degrees of foot and vehicular traffic over its expected service life. In order for the systems to perform and be considered fit for their intended use, they must be installed, used and maintained as set out in the BBA Certificate and according to Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates installation instructions (as described in the Derbyshire Speciailist Aggregates Training Manual and Resin Bound Training Course.
