Here at Grundy & Co Excavations Ltd, we provide an extensive range of recycled aggregates for the construction trade – one of these being MOT type 1.
What is MOT type 1 hardcore?
Type 1 hardcore is an approved granular sub base material, comprised primarily of crushed concrete, which typically forms the sublayer for roads, pavements and driveways. It meets the requirement of the department of transport specification for highway works in terms of its strength, size and composition for use as a compact sub base.
What is it used for?
Thanks to its hardwearing properties, the MOT type 1 sub base provides a load bearing stable layer, and a flat even surface, ready for a top coating of asphalt, concrete shingle or block paving.
Whilst it is essentially a hard material, it must be compacted before the upper layers are added, otherwise, gaps will compromise its supportive quality. Fortunately, our type 1 sub base will compact down well and is the perfect product to create a solid foundation to start off your construction project – whether it be creating a hardcore base for laying a patio, driveway or artificial grass.
