Asphalt Driveways Using NatraTex Coloured Surfacing
Choosing the right type of asphalt driveways for a property development is the sort of hard landscaping decision which unifies a project. NatraTex Cotswold and NatraTex Colour paving are the perfect choice for providing an alternative to traditional resin bound surfaces. The visual tonality of the aggregate in this specialist surfacing compliments the materials used in building construction. They become part of the environment in which they sit instead of separate entities. The clear synthetic binder allows the warmth of the natural aggregates to work in harmony with the architecture of the built environment.
A Proven Record in Asphalt Driveways
Asphalt driveways, footpaths and approach roads create an important impression whether they’re part of a residential or commercial setting. A high quality and durable decorative driveway which gives a smooth approach by car and is also pleasant for pedestrians to walk on creates a positive impact. It reflects the quality of the homes for sale, or forms part of the initial brand experience of a company before anyone has set foot through the front door. You never get a second chance to make a good first impression, as the saying goes, so why would you take a chance with an inferior form of coloured surfacing?
Pimperne Primary School in Dorset used NatraTex Cotswold on access routes for vehicles and pedestrians. As part of a new development in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the school’s asphalt driveways and hard landscaping had to meet stringent standards. NatraTex was selected over other options for its quality and sympathetic colour scheme in relation to the important setting.
In Quedgley, Gloucestershire a recent housing development was given a lift when NatraTex was used for the street surfacing and asphalt driveways of the homes. This type of surfacing technology differentiates the site from the traditional black asphalt used on the main highway. The Cotswold stone aggregate unified the streets and footpaths around the development and complimented the brickwork on the houses.
Why do Architects and Developers Choose NatraTex for Asphalt Driveways
There are many reasons why architects, designers and planners choose NatraTex for asphalt driveways. It ticks all the boxes for quality, ease of installation, and aesthetic appeal. You can see plenty of examples of the fantastic results on retail parks, schools, and recreational areas in our portfolio.
From a technical perspective, it can be laid like a conventional asphalt to varying depths which are suitable for pedestrians, cyclists, light vehicle use, or more heavily trafficked areas such as car parks or public highways. The colours available enable landscape architects to use it for large open spaces, or as demarcation between routes and zones. This controls and directs different types of traffic. It is a highly adaptable solution for coloured driveways and decorative paving which has been used in locations as diverse as Radyr Train Station in South Wales and Cheltenham Racecourse.
