Install resin bound to BBA accredited standards

The DALTEX UVR Resin Bound System has been certified by the BBA (British Board of Agrément). This is the highest industry standard available for resin bound installation.

How to become a DALTEX UVR System Qualified Installer

Here are the steps you need to follow if you wish to install resin bound to the highest industry standards as a DALTEX UVR System Qualified Installer.

1.   Attend our training day

The first step to becoming qualified is to attend a dedicated training day. This is a half day training course where you will learn the correct methodology and administration procedures that must be followed in order to become a DALTEX Qualified Installer. 

By attending this training day, you will receive a free hygrometer and thermometer (which are vitally important), in addition to a free DALTEX sample case worth £20.

2. You must have completed 6 resin bound installations

In order to apply to become a DALTEX UVR System Qualified Installer, you must also have completed 6 resin bound installations.

3. Pass a resin bound installation site audit

Having successfully completed the training day, you will then be required to pass a site audit. This audit is to check that all the highest standards of resin bound installation are being met, in addition to the use of right dried aggregates and resin.

The resin bound system will need to be supplied to the site and mixed exactly as described in the DALTEX UVR installation guidelines and BBA certificate instructions. The resin and aggregate must also comply with DALTEX approved mix design – any mixes that do not comply will not qualify for approval. 

There will also be some paperwork that you must complete relating to each project. This is a day sheet that must be completed for every day of the project – a copy must also be submitted to Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates within one week of project completion.

Important: Please note that the certification is awarded subject to a contractor agreeing to the codes and standards set out in training and continuing to meet the required installation standards. Your certification may be removed for non-compliance.
