Resiblock and Huddersfield University have recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of successful sealing works of Resiblock ’22’.
Back in the Spring of 2014, as part of the design and construction of a £21.5-million Learning and Leisure Centre, nearly 1000m² of Clay Block Paving was installed at the University’s main campus. With the university now able to handle 24,000 students per year, concerns were raised over the possibility of sand erosion caused by the trafficking of pedestrians.
Following trials, Resiblock beat off competition thanks to the simple yet durable one coat application of Resiblock ’22’. In the five years since the first application of Resiblock ’22’, the clay block paving at Huddersfield University remains strong and stable, with the sand joints fully intact.
Resiblock Provide Rialto Homes with Quay Sealing Solution
Rialto Homes & Resiblock Stand the Test of Time
Resiblock and Rialto Homes are celebrating the 15th anniversary of the successful sealing of the Hewetts Quay site in Barking.
Barking and Dagenham Council had anticipated that any flooding from the local River Roding would lead to removal of jointing sand and the potential for destabilisation of the bedding sand. With the use of Clay Blocks at Hewetts Quay this risk was further heightened.
Resiblock liaised with both Rialto Homes and Barking and Dagenham Council and Resiblock ‘22’ was installed in the Spring of 2004. In the 15 years since, Resiblock ‘22’ has withstood all minor flooding that has occurred in the area, whilst also protecting against trafficking in the area.
London Bridge is Safe and Sound with Resiblock
As part of Network Rails £6bn Thameslink Programme the redevelopment of London Bridge Station started in 2013. With new paving installed, it was anticipated by Network Rail and main contractors Lorclon Ltd, that cleaning regimes would serve to remove the jointing sand leading to de-stabilisation of the paving and causing hazards such as tripping accidents.
The success of Resiblock Resiecco at The 02 Arena and Sir Matt Busby Way at Manchester United Football Club, where similar problems associated with the paving where major concerns, played a key role in the selection process of the sealer.
Resiblock Technicians attended and advised on application and spread rate of Resiblock Resiecco and the one coat application allowed the station to remain open during installation.

Resiblock Made to Order for Maidstone Public Realm
Resiblock, and their Commercial product Resiblock ‘22’ A.F, has been specified and now utilised at the Maidstone Public Realm project.
Following trials of Sealers/Sealants on Charcon Andover Washed blocks by Maidstone Borough Council and contractors Henderson and Taylor, Resiblock ‘22’ A.F was specified due its protection against food and drink stains, and darkened appearance.
The success of Resiblock ‘22’ A.F at Bedford Square in Tavistock, and at Guildhall Shopping Centre in Exeter played a key part in Resiblock’s recommendation of Resiblock ‘22’ A.F, as both sites experienced similar level of footfall traffic that is expected in the Maidstone project.
