Grand Designs Live Show

Long Rake Spar were delighted to be exhibiting with Addagrip at Grand Designs Live at the NEC in Birmingham from the 8th to 11th October.

The 4 days we spent at the show were fantastic and very eventful as it saw a record number of people attend.

We brought with us some of our leading decorative aggregates, including our Rainbow Cobbles, Onyx Gravel, and numerous products from our Grantex range that are put into resin bonded and resin bound systems.

With flooding affecting many commercial buildings and residential homes in recent years, water management and flood prevention have become increasingly important to customers when deciding on surfacing. Resin Bound surfaces like some of those showcased on our stand at Grand Designs are SuDS compliant and allow rapid drainage of water in order to prevent surface saturation.

Both fine and larger grades of aggregates from our Grantex range can be used in bound systems, enabling contractors to offer a surface that is of similar value for money as traditional non-permeable paving and has the added benefit of offering distinct colouring and choice for customers. Similarly, our range can be used in any bonded system to create a more rustic textured finish that’s hard wearing and low maintenance.

We thought the show was a great success, members of our expert sales team were kept busy answering lots of questions and assisting contractors, merchants, landscapers and specifiers with general enquiries.

We are looking forward to attending again next year and would like to say thank you to everyone who popped in to say hello.
