The firm has been working with the United Kingdom National Codification Bureau (UKNCB) to gain four Nato Stock Numbers (NSN) for the material.

This is a key development as Nato Stock Numbers (NSN) are issued after rigorous analysis and mean that products can be listed for purchase across any Nato country. This allows businesses to achieve trading relationships, in particular with the military, and other major infrastructure organisations.

The Durapath product is now being used by the Royal School of Military Engineers for a project to deploy a rapid build road surface.

The product is made from 100% recycled plastic, offers efficient drainage and can be used for motorway cnstruction sites and heavy-use car parks and factory settings.

It comes in two colours (sand and black) in 1m2 sheets and 59m2 pallets.

With its high-strength material and clipping system, Durapath can be used in heavy traffic areas with both wheeled and tracked vehicles.    

According to the firm, this is a durable product that provides a permanent ground solution, and replaces the need for traditional and costly hard-standing products. Durapath’s design conforms to the Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems Laws (SUDS) and allows water to permeate through the ground, while being strong enough to take the heaviest of day-to-day loads.
