With Block Paving beginning to fail, and two major roundabouts now considered a risk to road users, Preston City Council turned to the expertise of Resiblock to find a sealing solution to ensure the longevity and safety of the councils’ roads.
The presence of weed growth between the mortar jointing had caused the destabilisation of the pavers which were falling into the road, but with refurbished paving installed with new jointing, Resiblock were able to specify the use of Resiblock Resiecco to ensure long-term stabilisation and protection.
The global success of Resiblock Resiecco showed Preston City Council that this was a product to trust and has now ultimately been utilised.
Resiblock Resiecco has been utilised in Winchester City Centre to provide sealing solutions as part of the ‘Winchester Vision’.
Following re-paving works and subsequent cleaning work to the City Square and High Street within the city centre, it was determined by Winchester City Council that a sealer was required to ensure long-term protection of paving.
Resiblock recommended the Resiecco product, known for its success at The 02 Arena and Manchester United Football Club, due to its ability to protect the mix of Granite Block Paving and Granite Flags, stabilise the sand joints and ensure no colour change to the visual aesthetic of the paving, which was of particular importance to the client.
Resiblock have provided the ‘ultra’ protection for the Gunwharf Quay Shopping Centre through their Resiblock Ultra Matt sealer.
Following initial sealing works in 2018, Resiblock have now provided the sealing solutions for the entirety of the 800m² plaza. Resiblock Ultra Matt is the top of the range commercial product from Resiblock and has previously been used at sites such as Disneyland Hong Kong.
Resiblock Ultra Matt combines sand stabilisation, stain protection and colour enhancement which enables the product to deal with the needs of almost any client.
Resiblock, and their patented proprietary self-binding jointing sand Resiblock Resifix Commercial, have wowed following installation in Canary Wharf’s newest district Wood Wharf.
Wood Wharf was designed to provide a new residential led, mixed use, waterside community in the heartland of London’s financial district. With high levels of both footfall and vehicular traffic expected, the challenge of keeping the paving stabilised arose.
Resiblock were able to rely on the success of Main Street, Gibraltar to demonstrate the effectiveness and long-term success of Resiblock Resifix Commercial in a mixed-use environment. This, and subsequent testing, secured Resiblock Resifix Commercial as the choice of sand stabiliser for the first phase of the Wood Wharf site.
Resiblock have batted away the competition to become the sealer of choice for Waltham Cross, New Town Square.
The project sees the transformation of the vehicular turning areas, south of the Eleanor Cross monument, into a high quality, family friendly town square.
Through rigorous testing, Resiblock were able to show the superiority of Resiblock Ultra Matt in comparison to a number of alternatives, by providing higher levels of both stain protection and sand stabilisation.
Resiblock’s previous success at Bedford Square in Tavistock and Havelock Square in Swindon, further showed that Resiblock was the best sealer of choice for this Town Square transformation.
As part of plans to solve Oxfordshire’s housing woes, Resiblock have combined with Croudace Homes and South Oxfordshire District Council to provide sealing solutions for ‘Willowbrook Park’, Didcot.
Under the ‘Willowbrook Park’ plans, Resiblock ’22’ has been utilised to seal and stabilise Concrete Block paving that formed the pathway and roadways to a key landscaped area on Mersey Way.
These works further seal Resiblock’s reputation in the Didcot area, following the successful installation of Resiblock ’22’ at the Bloor Homes site of ‘The Greenway’ in 2017.
Resiblock Sealers make Waves with
South Tyneside Council
Resiblock & South Tyneside have once again combined to provide quality sealing solutions in South Shields.
Following successful sealing works of Resiblock ’22’ A.F in Ocean Road, South Tyneside realised that nothing could come close to “The Worlds Favourite Paving Sealer” Resiblock, when sealing works were specified for Sea Road in South Shields.
The seafront location comprised of both Concrete Block Paving and Concrete Slabs and therefore Resiblock ’22’ A.F was the perfect product due to its ability to seal and stabilise a variety of pavers, as shown in the Ocean Road sealing works.
Cheadle is provided with a Corridor of Certainty with Resiblock Treatment
Resiblock have combined with Rosgal Ltd to provide sealing solutions for Stockport Councils Cheadle Corridor Scheme.
Resiblock were specified by Stockport Council, and following consultations with Rosgal, Resiblock Resiecco has now been manufactured for site, which has seen both new paving and an extension to paved cycle lanes installed.
Resiblock Resiecco will provide both joint stabilisation and long-term paver protection to both the Concrete Block Paving and Concrete Slabs that have been laid. This marks the second installation of Resiblock Resiecco for Stockport Council following successful sealing works at Bridgefield Street in 2017.
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.
