Transform your outdoor space with Oltco Ltd
Breathe life into your space with a resin-bound driveway, patio or path.
As the UK’s leading resin-bound driveway specialist, Oltco is dedicated to providing outstanding service from consultation to completion and beyond. With innovative resin solutions across the UK, the team is particularly proud of its connection to the south west having worked across Cornwall to transform driveways, patios, pathways, balconies and pool surrounds for both domestic and commercial projects. Just one of its many installations included the creation of pathways at the Eden Project, one of the Duchy’s most famous attractions for both tourists and locals alike. To help support the number of visitors that come to the beautiful biomes each year, the team needed to create pathways that could withstand high foot traffic while being eco-friendly; this would also reflect the mission of both the Eden Project and Oltco as environmentally driven organisations that put sustainability at its core.
Oltco started work here in 2020 and has since used the equivalent of 1.7 million recycled straws on the pathways installed at the Eden Project. This is, however, just a drop in the ocean when you look at Oltco’s larger impact. In June 2023 Oltco hit the equivalent of 500 million recycled straws in its Recycle Bound projects across the UK and Channel Islands. Developed to be even stronger than other resin solutions, Recycle Bound has a higher tensile strength with the ability to hold more weight. It also happens to be the strongest system Oltco has ever tested, with a 20-year guarantee and 15-year guarantee on resin-bound solutions.
As well as the Eden Project, Oltco has completed installations at various other visitor attractions such as Bodmin Jail, RHS Garden Harlow Carr, the location of the G7 summit, Carbis Bay, Blackpool Sealife Centre, Donkey Sanctuary and a multitude of National Trust locations. Whether you are after a commercial, residential or hospitality project, Oltco has the experience and expertise to guide you through your resin refresh as we embrace the changes that come with 2024.
Did you know?
Oltco’s Recycle Bound has a 250°C melting point, which means that even if the UK has another heatwave, the plastic will not melt in the same way as alternatives like tarmac!
