A Closer Look at MOT Type 1

The Ministry of Transport (MOT) standardises 3 types of aggregate for use in the creation of sub-bases. These are MOT Types 1, 2 and 3. All 3 of these aggregates are suitable for sub-bases, but they also have varying properties. The manufacturing process for these aggregates involves breaking down materials like granite, concrete and limestone into irregular pieces.

The finished product must comply with clause 803 of the Department of Transport Specification for Highway Works.

As an aggregate supplier and grab lorry hire company, JSC Grab Hire delivers MOT Type 1 to roadwork contractors and construction companies in Sevenoaks and throughout Kent. We can also combine your aggregate or topsoil delivery with a muck away service for the ultimate convenience.

How is MOT Type 1 Used?

MOT Type 1 has an impressive load-bearing capacity. It also compacts easily. For these reasons, it has a wide range of uses, including:

  • Roads & Motorways

    Because MOT Type 1 can withstand significant loads, it’s used extensively by roadwork contractors. Pouring asphalt or tarmac on a sub-base of MOT Type 1 creates a surface strong enough to handle continuous, heavy traffic. JSC Grab Hire uses this aggregate in our Wack & Pack reinstatement service.

  • Public Pavements

    MOT Type 1 is the perfect material for paving contractors in Sevenoaks and the surrounding areas. Other aggregates expand and contract as temperatures fluctuate. This leads to cracks in the surface. The spaces between the irregular stone pieces in MOT Type 1 allows for expansion and contraction, but without causing surface cracks.

  • Property Development

    While our grab lorry vehicles provide muck away services for demolished buildings, they also help in the construction of new properties. As grab hire specialists, we help to remove excavated earth in the early stages. As aggregate suppliers, we provide an aggregate and topsoil delivery too. This includes MOT Type 1 for installing foundations for house extensions and new builds.

  • Driveways & Patios

    Our company also provides MOT Type 1 for use on domestic projects. If needed, we can also perform a muck away service to remove the ripped-up old materials too. MOT Type 1 makes a great, SUDS-compliant sub-base for these hard landscaping features.

As a leading aggregate supplier in Sevenoaks, we supply many more aggregates than MOT Type 1. For a more detailed breakdown, please visit the Aggregates page on the menu of this website. There, you will also find dedicated pages for our muck away, topsoil delivery and grab hire services.
