Charred Cobble ramp at Coed Cymru pavilion – 2015

Material: Scorched Larch cobbles 75mm x 90mm x 70mm thick from Wentwood Timber Centre www.wentwoodtimbercentre.co.uk Bonded onto Larch substrate with bitumen and screws.

This is a continuation of the work looking at improved slip resistance of cobbles in collaboration with TRADA www.trada.co.uk. The disabled access ramp is permanently positioned at the Coed Cymru pavilion, Royal Welsh show ground and will be assessed over the next couple of years. A summary of the test results by TRADA on improved slip resistance through charring can be seen on the Research page.
