When it comes to aesthetic preferences there is no right or wrong when it comes to paving or pathways, and with the advent of modern materials and technology, the list of products that we can use, and buy is staggering.

The use of recycled materials is on the rise in products that we use every day and within our industry, the thought of using recycled materials has permeated everywhere and is now being used successfully on a large scale.

One such product that we have produced is a mixed recycled range called FlexiSet. Made from 50% recycled rubber and 50% natural aggregate FlexiSet gives you all the environmental benefits of the SureSet brand with its 21-year guarantee.

With any product you want choices, and with FlexiSet you have eight blends plus the option of bespoke blends to choose from. Made from recycled shredded bus and lorry tires, the base material is always going to be shades of black, but when added with a blended mix of natural aggregates, it adds a whole new colour dimension, allowing you to match your paving, etc to any buildings or outhouses you have on-site.

FlexiSet can be used in any pedestrian space and is ideal for:

 

  • Golf Courses                      Rustic Pathways
  • Woodland/Nature trails
  • Bridleways
  • Coastal paths
  • Pedestrian areas
  • Canal and Cycle tracks
  • Equestrian centres
  • Drainage channels
  • Roof gardens
  • Tree pits
  • Jogging paths
  • Boat decks
  • Cemetery footpaths
  • Noise Reduction areas

 

 

Because FlesiSet is such a versatile low maintenance resin-bound system it can be used for many public outside areas. Visualise smooth pathways running through the sweeping countryside, or powering along a coastal path on your bike you need something hard-wearing, low maintenance and permeable.

This 50% recycled material is UV stable can be comfortably used by prams, pushchairs, wheelchairs and other bipedal systems.

FlexiSet can be used in conjunction with SureCell, our own base system, concrete, asphalt or laid on a well compacted granular base.
