Stonebound resin bound porous surfacing provided stunning new pathways for the Museum of Barnstaple & North Devon as part of an upgrade to showcase Barnstaple’s historic 1892 steam fire engine.
North Devon Council were looking to create a new decorative but durable paved area for the outside of the museum to give visitors access to the steam fire engine on display. The surface needed to be porous, sympathetic to the historic surroundings and robust enough to take the weight of the steam fire engine so it could be moved out for open air displays.
The council appointed Addagrip approved contractor I-Dream Solutions to install 70m2 of our Stonebound Resin Bound system in a Castle Grey blend to create a seamless porous surface with good slip resistance for this popular West Country visitor attraction.
I-Dream Solutions excavated the area and installed edging kerbs to complement the grey resin bound surface. An M.O.T. sub-base was installed, followed by an open graded asphalt and finished with the Castle Grey blend at 18mm depth. The newly landscaped area was completed with planters and a small trellis.
With the new robust access in place the steam fire engine can also be moved from inside the museum to be displayed on the square as part of outside exhibitions throughout the year.
The installation was completed in August 2020.
