FAQs

Will My Surface Match My Sample Exactly?

Trailflex uses natural stone sourced in the UK. While we will endeavour to match the colour of your sample exactly, our stone may vary. In some circumstances, stone colour may vary from mix to mix, this is a common occurrence and variances in the surface will settle over time due to the natural weathering process.

Will Trailflex have standing water on the surface?

No, Trailflex can process 50,000 litres of rain water, per meter per hour ensuring puddles never form on the surface.

As the surface contains recycled car tyres,Will it feel bouncy or spongy to walk or drive on?

No. We use stone mixed with our specialist tyre rubber and although flexible to 90 degrees Trailflex provides a solid surface to walk or drive on.

What maintainance is required?

Very little. Brushing occasionally with a stiff broom will be enough to keep the surface looking pristine.

How soon can I use my new driveway?

Within 16 hours

What ground preparation is required for Trailflex?

Trailflex is installed on to a preprepared base of 200mm of type 3 aggregate for driveways. Please seek advice for other applications such as patios and pathways

Can I drive tracked vehicles on Trailflex?

No. The rubber tracks can cause damage to the surface.

Will weeds grow on the surface?

The flexibility of the surface allows small particles of dirt to agitate through the surface as it is used, because of this weeds have no growth medium in which to establish themselves..

Will Trailflex eventually Clog?

No. The flexibility of the surface allows small particles of grit etc. to agitate through the surface ensuring that it will not clog.We also provide a 10 year no clog guarantee.

What happens if water freezes within the surface.

The flexibility of the Trailflex surface allows water to freeze and thaw without causing damage to the surface

Are slot drains or any other type of additional surface required?

No. Trailflex can process 50,000 litres of rain water, per meter, per hour

I have a heavy clay soil, will Trailflex still work?

Yes. We can offer specifications to deal with heavy clay soils.

Do I need to seek planning permission?

No. Trailflex is fully Suds compliant. With every square mm soaking up rain water, the whole area is effectively a soak away.

Legislation

SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage solution) is new legislation brought into action alongside the water management act 2010. SUDS is a legal requirement in planning to prevent surface water run off and the severe environmental impacts it causes.

Recycling

In addition to SUDS compliance Trailflex safely utilises 3 tyres on average for every square meter laid, reducing environmental impact by exploiting otherwise unusable and potential harmful materials.

Environment

Rapid water run off from hard paving has severe environmental impacts. These include downstream flooding, the transfer of pollutants into watercourses and depletion of ground water levels.

Solution

Trailflex’s unique solution overcomes these problems by allowing drainage infiltration on site. This is the preferred water dispersal option of the Environment Agency and the focus of the SUDS legislation.
