CEDEC Footpath Gravel - Red
The first of our CEDEC footpath gravels to be developed for Canary Wharf in 1990, this is an attractive mixture of grey and pink granites.
Specially developed by CED to use on footpaths where a
natural appearance is desired, but expected pedestrian footfall or
traffic will be too heavy for grass. CEDEC® Footpath Gravels form a firm
but porous structure that retains moisture while allowing any excess to
CEDEC®'s combination of different graded aggregates
create a firm, packed surface with approx. 25% compaction, which is
still porous and retains moisture due to its reduced clay content. Made
from granite or quartzite, CEDEC® is tree-friendly and does not affect
the soil's pH balance.
After compaction‚ coverage of CEDEC® footpath gravel‚ is
approximately 10m² per tonne at 50mm thick‚ compaction being about 25%.
So to compact to 50mm an initial non-compacted layer of 65mm is
