SuperCEDEC Treepit 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.
While our CEDEC® range has been a popular product since the 1990's,
we found that there were some situations in areas of particularly high
usage when it was not an ideal product to use. As a result, we developed
SuperCEDEC®. This product has the same natural appearance and
permeability as CEDEC®, but has a firmer compaction and slightly looser
crumb on the surface.
Both CECEC® and SuperCEDEC® footpath gravels are made from granite
and quartzite materials, which will not affect the pH value of the
surrounding soil and cause damage to growing trees. The permeable nature
of SuperCEDEC® combined with its more stable structure make SuperCEDEC®
ideally suited for use in urban tree-pits and footpaths.
Like CEDEC®, in order to function effectively SuperCEDEC® needs to be
used and rained upon. However, it will also function under cover if
After compaction, coverage of SuperCEDEC®, either in tree pits or as a
footpath gravel, is approximately 10m² per tonne at 50mm thick,
compaction being about 25%. So, in order to compact to 50mm, an initial
non-compacted layer of 65mm is required.
