SuperCEDEC Treepit Gravel - Silver
A silvery-grey granite with a fantastic neutral shade, CEDEC Silver allows for a more contemporary aesthetic, and is often a popular choice for city and urban paths.
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.
