When thinking about a new resin surface, it’s often hard to imagine which finish will best complement the outside space, both in colour and the type of aggregate used.

The best starting point is to decide if you require a porous or non-porous surface and what the surface is going to be used for. Next, ask whether the resin surface will be laid around trees; will it be use by those in wheelchairs or people pushing buggies? Is it a surface for vehicles and is it on a slope?

In addition to displaying our aggregate range in the HMS Leicestershire showroom, we also provide material samples which can be placed on the existing surface to help you make this all important decision. By bringing to life what the finished surface will look like, you can be sure you are making the right choice.

HMS has a huge selection of washed and dried aggregates for resin bound and resin bonded surfaces, ready-made into manageable samples. We have over 30 blends available within our standard range, all of which can be ordered free of charge.

With colours ranging from reds, golds, silvers, greys and whites in our natural aggregate finishes, to marbles, crushed glass, recycled rubber and even seashells in our specialist blends category, we’re confident we have something to suit everyone. We also create bespoke mixes if you have specific requirements and offer a free of charge colour matching service.

Ordering material samples from HMS could not be easier. Just go to the contact form on our website, give us a call, or visit our showroom. We are open from 9 – 5 Monday to Friday or by appointment at the weekend.
