Top-quality MOT type 1 aggregate

MOT Type 1 is typically made from limestone, crushed concrete and granite. As a crushed granite sub-base, it ensures a flat and compact surface with excellent load-bearing capacity. The varying particle sizes interlock and distribute weight evenly to prevent settlement.

Type 1 hardcore is approved by the Ministry of Transport. It provides a stable and durable sub-base for high-traffic road surfaces and pavement construction and can be used to create a hardcore base for patios, driveways and artificial grass.

Whilst there are several reasons why more and more people are choosing MOT Type 1 in Liverpool, one of the main ones is that it is a recycled aggregate. This means that it’s generally cheaper to manufacture than raw materials. And, when locally sourced, can save you money on transportation costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

MOT Type 1 is a crushed aggregate, made from recovered materials that range in size from 40mm to dust. Sometimes referred to as subbase, MOT Type 1 granules interlock when compacted, adding strength and allowing for solid structures like roads, patios, driveways, car parks etc., to be constructed safely over the top.

Absolutely – MOT Type 1 is permeable, which allows for adequate drainage in construction and landscaping projects. Once compacted the MOT Type 1 is structurally strong, but tiny gaps in the aggregate remain, that water can use to drain – albeit slowly.
