Free DALTEX Online Resin Bound Installation Training

Thursday 25 February 2021 17:20

As the fastest growing surfacing solution of the last 5 years, Resin Bound is a major sales opportunity well worth considering.

Homeowners across the UK are increasingly asking contractors, landscapers, builders and architects for Resin Bound driveways, paths and patios. The commercial sector has also seen growing demand for Resin Bound projects of all types including car parks, shopping centres, concourses, schools, parks, hospitals and more. 

As more and more contractors and landscapers consider Resin Bound a must have service and an integral feature of landscaping, it is important that standards for Resin Bound installation are maintained.

As the manufacturer of DALTEX, the no.1 brand in Resin Bound, Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates is committed to promoting the highest standards of Resin Bound installation and ensuring DALTEX products are used correctly according to manufacturer and BBA guidelines.

Pre-Covid, we offered a one day resin bound training course from our head office in Derbyshire but the pandemic has temporarily suspended any on-site training. However requests for advice, guidance and training on resin bound continue.

In response to this demand, we have launched “An Introduction to Resin Bound”, a comprehensive online Resin Bound training course, to ensure you have all the information you need to start installing beautiful resin driveways to BBA approved standards and can add Resin Bound to your list of services.

To support the industry in these challenging times, we have taken the decision to waive all online training fees and the DALTEX online resin bound training course is free.

Practical Resin Bound training is available

Rather like a driving test, our online Resin Bound training course is divided into two parts.

This free online Resin Bound training course covers the theory and essential information required to start installing Resin Bound driveways to BBA approved standards.  However, hands-on practical experience is also available.

Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates offer Part 2 - a practical, hands-on follow-up to the online theory where you can learn more about mixing and trowelling techniques and try them out. This optional follow-up half-day Resin Bound training includes a site visit to the home of DALTEX at our purpose-built training facility in Derbyshire and costs £49.00 per person (excluding VAT).

PLEASE NOTE: Practical training is currently on hold due to COVID, however if you are interested, please contact us today and we will be in touch as soon as dates become available.
