SureCell® (a sub-base)

SureCell is our own sub-base system but is often used as a stand-alone paving product for

  • Driveways
  • Pathways
  • Car parks
  • Cycleways
  • Tree Surrounds
  • Gardens and patios
  • Paving extensions

When not used as a paving product SureCell is used as a sub-base for tree surrounds, driveways, shed and summer houses or even an extension to existing paving.

Use for self-install or part of our full installation service?

You can opt to buy SureCell TradePacks to self install, each pack covers 36m², and for convenience, you can request the option to buy the loose stone infill which will all be delivered to location.

SureCell is also known as a ground reinforcement system and is generally used as part of our installation service, it’s a cellular grid structure that is made from recycled plastic and makes a perfect sub-base. It is an interlocking system that is laid directly on a compacted stone and in-filled with loose gravel.


In addition, a top layer of SureSet resin bound paving will provide a fully permeable, SuDS compliant surface when installed on top of the SureCell base.

We have various applications that you can Download our SureCell Base specification for.

SureCell sub-base is:

  • Faster, cheaper and easier to install than most traditional systems
  • Installed by our expert Team
  • Super-strong and high load bearing
  • Fully permeable, efficiently filtering water back into the natural water table
  • Covered by our 21 year guarantee
  • Fully compliant with SuDS.

Technical information

SureCell has a compressive strength of 400t/m².  When considering this for use on any groundworks, seek local specialist advice, as the sub-base requirements will differ for each project.

Made from recycled plastic, an inert and stable product, with an expected lifespan of over 50 years.

Environmental information

CIRIA, the leading body in SuDS research, states that a permeable surface can remove 60-95% of suspended solids and 70-90% of hydrocarbons.   Building up rather than digging down eliminates potential damage to trees and plants.

Minimising the need for heavy machinery reduces pollution, the carbon footprint and minimises on-site disruption from dust, erosion and runoff.   Capturing surface runoff and naturally returning it to the water table eliminates the need for traditional and often expensive drainage systems.
