Heidelberg Materials’ Duralayer-Path® is designed to replace conventional two-layer construction for footway and cycleway applications.

Duralayer-Path® is a close textured single layer application which is suited to use on footways and cycleways where a low textured and deformation resistant one-layer treatment is required. With its close textured finish, Duralayer-Path® offers lower rolling resistance for improved ride quality.

It utilises locally available aggregates to reduce the impact of carbon, whilst providing a low surface texture and low air voids. This results in material that doesn’t segregate like traditional binder course materials, therefore protecting lower layers from water ingress.

Duralayer-Path® is available in 6mm, 10mm and 14mm sizes and is laid using conventional paving equipment in line with BS 594987.


As per Duralayer-Path® but also provides enhanced fuel resistance.

Layer thickness

Details of constituent quality and layer thickness shown below:

  • 6mm nominal size 30 – 60mm
  • 10mm nominal size 40 – 80mm
  • 14mm nominal size 50 – 100mm


The main advantages of Duralayer-Path® when used as a maintenance treatment, either as inlay or overlay or as a surface course for new construction, are:

  • Time saving single layer application
  • Designed to be easy to compact
  • Controlled low void content, preventing water ingress and assisting durability
  • Improved fatigue and deformation resistance
  • Sustainable product available in era140 and REA versions
  • Our Duralayer-Path®+ product has enhanced fuel resisting properties
