Royal Town Receives Red Carpet Treatment from Ultrascape’s Mortar Paving System

Ultrascape’s BS 7533 compliant Mortar Paving System is being used to improve the look and feel of many of Caernarfon town’s main streets.

Caernarfon, granted the status of Royal Borough by Queen Elizabeth II in 1963,  is part of Gwynedd Council’s ambitious regeneration plans to enhance the County’s visitor appeal. The £2.4 million project aims make it easier for people to get in and around the town. The scheme involves enhancements to several streets which includes the installation of high quality paving and lighting.

The work is being carried out by Civil Engineers Dawnus Construction who are delivering comprehensive improvements to the town’s landscape. The project is scheduled for completion in March 2012.

Ultrascape’s Pro-Bed HS Fine Bedding Concrete in Bulk, Pro-Prime Slurry Primer and Flowpoint ECO Rapid Setting Grout are being used to lay the 4,000m² of concrete paving slabs and natural slate to meet the rigors of BS 7533.

Ultrascape Pro Bed HS fine bedding concrete is being supplied in 30 tonne bulk silos. Perfect for large scale pedestrianisation schemes where high volumes of bedding concrete are required at the touch of a button. It provides a bedding base that conforms to the strict requirements of BS 7533.

Ultrascape Pro-Prime Slurry Primer is specifically formulated to provide an exceptional bond of greater than 2N/mm² between all types of stone. It only requires the simple addition of water before it can be applied to the stone elements.

Ultrascape Flowpoint ECO, a rapid setting flowable grout, is formulated for early trafficking and can be poured over paved areas and simply washed away with no risk of staining. It contains recycled glass thus reducing the use of virgin aggregate and can be opened to foot traffic after only one hour due to its setting properties.

Dawnus Construction chose Ultrascape’s materials because of their excellent track record; having used them previously on several projects. The BS 7533 compliant system provides a high quality, durable finish which is so important for an investment such as this.
