What is Flexitrail Surfacing?

Posted on 25 May 2023

More and more people are investing in Flexitrail. A highly innovative form of paving. Flexitrail can enhance the standard of your driveway whilst adding value to your property. At Resin Mixed Stone, we are proud to be amongst the most prominent suppliers of Flexitrail surfacing in South Yorkshire. 

Read on to find out what is Flexitrail surfacing and why it’s such a great investment for your home. 

Why has Flexitrail surfacing become so popular?

Manufactured from a unique combination of durable recycled tyres (SBRA), resin and stone, Flexitrail surfacing has become increasingly popular amongst home and business owners over the years. One of the reasons for this is its excellent porosity. Flexitrail surfacing has a porosity of 80,000 litres of water per m2 per hour. This allows rainwater to drain more easily through to the soil beneath. Preventing surface flooding. 

Another reason why so many people choose to install Flexitrail surfacing is that it is almost maintenance-free. This means that it’s easier to care for than many other surfacing options. Ensuring there’s less work to do to keep your driveway looking its best.

Efficient on heavy clay soils Fleixtrail Surfacing

Flexitrail can be directly installed onto type 3 aggregate and straight onto a membrane in some circumstances. We can create your Flexitrail surface on-site via a cold, one-part process that can be trafficked within just 16 hours. One step that we do ask you to take is to talk to a ground engineering specialist before you book your installation. This will ensure Flexitrail is a suitable match for your environment. If there is heavy clay in your existing ground, you may require membrane beneath type 3.

Cuts your impact on the environment

Another advantage that Flexitrail offers is that it uses an average of 3 tyres for each square metre that is laid down. This enables you to cut your impact on the environment and avoid the use of harmful materials. Flexitrail was first developed for environments with trees under protection orders and enables 90-degree flexibility with no compromises on strength or weight loading. 

The adaptable finished surface helps you to eliminate the risk of root intrusion and any cracking that could occur as a result. Another benefit of Flexitrail is that it can also be laid down in public spaces where it can cut the likelihood of trips and falls whilst delivering a pleasant walking surface. The surfacing is noted for its shock absorbent qualities and reduces the chances of pedestrian and cyclist falls.

I am thrilled with my new resin driveway. Excellent service from Resin Mixed Stone. Thorough preparatory work resulting in a fabulous finish.The stone colour I chose matches my house stone and brightens my whole driveway up. I would definitely recommend this company.
Very professional, excellent result, resin driveway job completed earlier than expected and very neatly. Our drive has been transformed! Thankyou.
Many thanks to Richard and his team who did a fantastic work when resurfacing our drive and front of bay window with resin stone.
Resin Mixed Stone put down a resin driveway for my mother in October last year. The service and workmanship was excellent and the drive has been totally transformed from its previous old concrete look. My wife and I were so impressed that we used Resin Mixed Stone to wide our existing driveway and then cover the existing tarmac surface with a resin coat. The service and workmanship was again excellent and the new drive looks superb. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone who is considering a resin surface.
From start to finish the whole service and end product has been and is fantastic. Plenty of options to choose from with samples and practical advice to make that easier. Quote was clear and care taken to measure accurately. The team that completed the work were very professional and hard-working. The finished driveway has transformed the front of our property. Would highly recommend the team. Thank-you to all the Resin Mixed Stone team.
"We are extremely pleased with the quality of the work and the outcome - a lovely driveway. Richard Lomas was very helpful at all stages and his staff were careful throughout. The preparation of the site before laying the resin was also impressive. I give this company a 5 stars recommendation."
