Red Granite Cresta™

Cloburn red granite Cresta is a strong durable surface, ideal for running tracks, tennis courts and outdoor playing pitches

In Scotland, outdoor playing pitches used to be surfaced using burnt colliery waste which was known as “blaes”. However, this was a soft material that quickly deteriorated into mud.

By sharp contrast, red granite Cresta™ is produced from granite which means its strong and durable requiring virtually no maintenance. It’s actually a 3mm down product with an added binder which produces a permeable surface that maintains the correct level of friction. Typically, when used for tennis courts, the result is that the ball slows down and a higher bounce is produced similar to the clay courts of the French Open. This is because there is more grab and when the ball lands there is a greater amount of friction produced which pushes against the ball’s horizontal path. In order to maintain the superb Cresta surface it is usually necessary to carry out occasional rolling.

Cloburn red granite Cresta is also perfect for running tracks and football pitches as it feels light under foot and has an appealing surface texture. In addition, the Cresta surface is commonly used for walkways and pathways as it offers a visually attractive alternative to other forms of gravel and stone chippings.
