Summerstone Fines has been used to great effect in many residential and commercial projects including Wireless Hill in Ardross and the Supreme Court Gardens in the city.
Summerstone fines needs to be compacted into the ground at a compacted depth of 50mm for foot traffic and 100mm for light vehicle traffic. It is highly recommended that a compacted sub-base of crushed limestone or blue metal road base in is installed at a similar depth prior to applying the Summerstone fines surface. It is not recommended to apply directly on to soft sand. Be aware that the fines will compact around 20% meaning that you’ll need to order an extra 20% to reach your finished height. 6 – 7 good passes with a plate compactor will give you the best result.
