    Resin bound surface for Savanna Splash swimming pool

    Contractor True Grip Ltd

    Terrabound 3mm Terracotta 

    Addagrip approved contractor True Grip Ltd were asked to carry out an unusually challenging installation that saw the team working in water!

    The existing rubber crumb surfacing at the Savanna Splash swimming pool at the African themed Safari Hotel, Chessington World of Adventures was failing and the client was looking for an alternative surfacing system that would be suitable for a pool area.  

    Terrabound Resin Bound surfacing is a porous system that is decorative, hard wearing and comfortable underfoot.  With BBA certification, the product has been tested for chlorine resistance and meets Slip Resistance requirements, making it perfect for pool surround projects.

    A 3mm Terracotta aggregate blend was selected to replace the existing red rubber crumb and True Grip carried out the installation in one day to ensure minimum disruption for guests.

    However, the biggest challenge was that the only access to the application area was via the pool which meant that the team had to wade through water to reach it but nevertheless, the installation went swimmingly!  

    The project was completed in June 2016.
