NatraTex Cotswold® is the flagship product of the range. It combines the key ingredients from the company's other hard landscaping products to form a durable, fully-bonded, buff coloured natural aggregate wearing course.  It is an asphalt surface course, with the characteristics of a conventional macadam; installed at the same depth and same sub layers (base and binder course).

Benefits

  • Based on tried and tested asphalt technology to offer a high-performance, hardwearing surface.
  • Offers a fully compacted finish compared to real gravel.
  • Virtually maintenance-free once applied.
  • Seamless finish is resistant to deterioration, such as cracks or potholes.
  • Prevents the likelihood of trips and falls.
  • Clear binder makes it environmentally sympathetic and durable.
  • Fast and simple to apply.
  • Complies with BS 4987 and BS 594.

Applications

  • NatraTex® has been used for roads and paths both in the public and domestic sectors. 
  • Suitable for new construction, overlays or regeneration projects.
  • Can be used to reflect the character of heritage buildings or complement modern schemes.

Manufacture

A specially formulated clear binder is used to bond natural aggregates, producing a durable, fully-bonded yet natural looking surface. This allows architects and designers to blend the hard landscaping with the immediate architecture and surroundings.
