Resin Bound Patio for outside, what is that?
A Resin Bound Patio that has been installed outside consists of dried small stones or granules that are bonded with an adapted binder or synthetic resin. This mixture is then spread over the paved surface. After about 4 hours, it can be walked on easily outside (at 20° degrees).
You can create a Resin Bound Patio with all kinds of stones, such as Terraced. This is a water-permeable system of bonded aggregates for outdoor and is ideal for driveways, garden paths, surfacing around pools and trees, etc.
Concretely, Terraced consists of 3 types of systems:
- Terraced Strong is ideal for outdoor Resin Bound Patios such as garden paths, around trees, etc., which are not used to be driven over by vehicles. Terraced Solid must be used for this.
- Solid is mainly used for Resin Bound Patio where a heavier load is expected such as parking lots, driveways, etc.
- Terraced Splendid is a water-permeable finishing layer that is used on Resin Bound Gravel Patio where yellowing should not occur. Just think of terraces, balconies, around swimming pools, etc.

Durable & long life
An outdoor Resin Bound Patio is a hardwearing and durable pavement. The lifespan of it is approximately 30 years. In addition, a water-permeable Resin Bound Gravel Patio is a more sustainable, nature-friendly, and environmentally conscious solution than standard pavements such as tiles, clinker, concrete, etc.
Very easy to maintain: weed-resistant and freeze-thaw resistant
An outdoor Resin Bound Patio does not require much maintenance. You can easily clean it is with a high-pressure cleaner. Moreover, it is done with the growth of moss or weeds on the pavement around your house. With a Terraced Resin Bound Gravel Patio, weeds cannot grow from below, making it a good weed-resistant solution.
A Resin Bound Gravel Patio is also very resistant to high and low temperatures. Because it is freeze and thaw resistant, it will survive a harsh winter unscathed and you don’t have to worry about slippery spots.
When you choose a Terraced Resin Bound Patio, you always enjoy a water-permeable system. This has the advantage that rainwater is collected and buffered on-site and will slowly drain into the soil. As a result, no puddles remain on your outside and you prevent flooding during heavy rainfall.

- Garden paths
- Around swimming pools
- Around trees
In addition, a Resin Bound Patio can be installed on top of different surfaces as long as it is stable enough. If a water-permeable outdoor Resin Bound Gravel Patio is chosen, the substrate must of course also be water-permeable.
