Education and Leisure

ULTICOLOUR is an increasingly popular choice for education and leisure environments. Our coloured asphalts are suitable for a wide range of applications from playgrounds and multi use games areas to footpaths and parking areas.

Brighter Colours

ULTICOLOUR asphalts use a clear polymer modified binder and colour matched aggregates to produce brighter coloured asphalts. It also incorporates high quality colour matched aggregates to produce deeper colours that resist surface wear.

Distinctive Appearance

ULTICOLOUR is available in a range of colours that complement modern architectural designs and add to the visual appeal for clients and students.

Fast Installation

ULTICOLOUR can be laid quickly over large areas using standard paving equipment, just like a conventional asphalt. This means that work can be completed within a short timeframe and sites reopened on schedule.

Safe, Low Maintenance Surface

The smooth, even, monolithic surface of ULTICOLOUR avoids the trip hazard and remedial maintenance that can be experienced from movement in block paving. As a result, ULTICOLOUR offers the ideal choice for both coloured playground surfaces and coloured sports surfaces.

Accredited Contractors

ULTICOLOUR is only available for installation by accredited contractors who have full access to our expert training, advice and technical support. This ensures that the client receives an excellent finish every time.
