Suitable for pedestrian and low vehicular traffic, whilst still keeping the system decorative, functional, seamless and slightly flexible (and also low maintenance).

Description

LimeTreePit Natural UV is a 40 mm, natural aggregate surface surround for planted trees. Surrounds the tree in a permeable construction, which allows for water to feed the tree whilst keeping the tree pit free from rubbish and hazardous items. The structure allows rainwater to pass through, being Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS)-compliant.

Available in a variety of colours, due to the inclusion of a high-performance, UV-stable resin for the aggregate surface system.

Edgings created from brick, stone, timber or steel should be installed to retain and protect the system, and prolong its lifespan.

Resin and aggregate:

Ultraviolet (UV)-resistant resin; will not yellow on exposure to UV light. The resin is formulated using aliphatic HDI, which will not deteriorate nor become brittle when exposed to UV light, when tested to BS EN ISO 16474-3 method A.

The performance and appearance of the finished surface is dependent on the aggregate used (see LimeGate Solutions LimeTreePit mix blend swatch sheet for colour options). The aggregate blends have been designed to achieve strength, resilience, porosity and decoration.

Features and benefits:

  • UV-stable; will not discolour nor degrade.
  • Tested to slip-resistant BS 8204-6.
  • SuDS-compliant permeable paving: 850 L/m²/minute.
  • Natural and recycled aggregate available.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Installation depth of 40–50 mm.
  • All aggregates selected to reduce the chances of rust appearing.
  • Optimized ratio of resin to aggregate mix blends, in line with industry standards.
  • Foot traffic after 14–15 hours at 20°C.

Application:

Suitable for pedestrian and low vehicular traffic, whilst still keeping the system decorative, functional, seamless and slightly flexible (and also low maintenance).
