Ramia Tree Surround
Developed to mark out and protect tree plantations in paved areas, the Escofet Ramla Tree Surround provides a practical solution, encouraging efficient surface water management.
The architects Pere Cabrera and Jaume Artigues designed the tree surround for the Raval stream bed in Barcelona as a natural stone product for the area. They wanted to minimise tree surround maintenance, as well as providing a water clearance solution for a climate where extensive rains are a frequent occurrence.
Consisting of 2 pieces of reinforced cast stone in granite grey laid at pavement level, the ramp at either end syphons water into the base area, and facilitates easy cleaning and maintenance. The stone is available in 2 finishes; acid-etched and waterproofed, or in its natural concrete state.
- Reinforced cast stone in granite grey
- Choice of 2 natural finishes
- Ramp design aids movement of rainwater
- Facilitates easy maintenance and cleaning
- Embedded at paving level
Ethical Risk Index
This Radar diagram illustrates the level of ethical risk associated with a specific stone. Ethical risk is plotted against the 10 ten measures of the ERI, with each value drawn from reports produced by independent ethical auditors, engaged by Marshalls to provide non-biased and honest reporting into levels of risk in that supply chain.
Each of the 10 measure is designed to recognise different and discrete sources of ethical risk. This produces a bespoke, fit for purpose framework designed specifically for the requirements of the stone industry. The radar diagram itself also compares the Marshalls supply chain to the wider industry in that stone, giving users a working comparison of Marshalls supply chain to the industry average, in the opinion of the auditor.
