UltraScape has been manufacturing and providing the industry with high quality, specialist paving installation materials for over 25 years. Their expert materials are proven to work alongside all stone manufacturers with guaranteed, excellent results every time.
Over the last 25 years, UltraScape have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. They have built longstanding relationships with architects, specifiers and contractors, and have listened to the changing needs of the industry to develop and suite of proven and trusted paving installation materials.
As a trusted UK manufacturer, UltraScape have always prided themselves on providing the industry with quality paving materials. With this in mind, each of the products that make up UltraScape’s BS 7533 Mortar Paving System has been put through rigorous independent testing by an UKAS accredited laboratory to assess their performance capabilities and to ensure they give the best performance possible in real time situations.
What’s more, UltraScape’s Mortar Paving System is proven to work perfectly with all stone manufacturers, allowing you to use their premium installation materials with the paving stone of your choice. By choosing UltraScape, you are not restricted to a sole supplier of both stone and installation materials, but are given the freedom to use your first choice of paving with full confidence that UltraScape will perform no matter which stone manufacturer use you – choose UltraScape for complete comfort in compatibility.
Building the right foundation for your paving is critical to success. UltraScape’s bedding mortars will provide the ultimate laying course for all types of paving. UltraScape perma-bed is a permeable bedding mortar specially designed with permeability in mind. Formulated to drain away any water migrating into the pavement via cracks or damaged areas, perma-bed reduces water related pavement failures as rainwater will drain away rather than sit on top of the stone.
What’s more, the free passage of water through the cured product ensures that correctly laid paving will not suffer from reflective staining emanating from the underside of the paving elements.
If you are looking to achieve an ‘Excellent’ CEEQUAL award, or are due to have a BREEAM assessment, then UltraScape eco-bed is the bedding mortar for you. UltraScape eco-bed is proven to provide the performance you would expect from a BS 7533 bedding mortar but also contains 20% recycled material, significantly reducing the consumption of virgin aggregates.
Priming is an important part of any paving installation but is something that is often overlooked. Neglecting to include a primer such as UltraScape pro-prime slurry primer, can have disastrous consequences for your project and as a result, the reputation of your business.
UltraScape pro-prime is a slurry primer manufactured to meet the demanding requirements of BS 7533. Suitable for use with all paving manufacturers and types, including stone and porcelain pavers, UltraScape pro-prime is simple to use and is proven to increase adhesion, preventing failure and prolonging the life of your project.
Selecting the correct bedding mortar and primer to install your paving is paramount to success but the finishing is also crucial. When making such an integral design decision, it is vital that you don’t compromise the aesthetics with poor jointing.
UltraScape have jointing options suitable for all designs and tastes. Their range of flowable grouts and brush in sand will make light work of any installation – the hardest decision you will make is choosing between the beautiful colour options available.
Available in three varieties – Original, ECO and Smooth, and two stunning colours – Natural Grey and Charcoal – UltraScape flowpoint rapid set flowable grout, provides a decorative, natural-effect finish every time.
UltraScape flowpoint is easy to mix and apply, and once grouted, can be walked over in just 1 hour, minimising disruption and allowing you to move on to another part of the project quickly.
Completing the UltraScape jointing range is premjoint – the next generation in decorative, brush-in jointing solutions. Using popular natural paving stones as inspiration, premjoint is available in three attractive colours – Natural Cashmere, Storm Grey and Cosmic Black. Furthermore, premjoint eliminates the need for hand pointing, can be used in all weathers, is frost resistant, and once applied, can be walked over in just 24-48 hours.

Newcastle Cathedral, UCLAN University, Friars Walk in Newport, Piccadilly Place, Grand Central Station, MediaCity, Bullring Shopping Centre, Coal Drops in Kings Cross, Paradise Birmingham and Marble Arch are just some of the most recent projects benefiting from UltraScape’s knowledge and expert installation materials.
