What Does MOT Type 1 Aggregates Mean?

The name that binds these types of aggregates together refers to the Ministry Of Transport (MOT). All aggregates sold as Type 1 MOT are approved to be used in the construction of highways and pavements as well as for private use. As an aggregate, Type 1 MOT compacts well and provides a solid base for many types of construction projects. Although not required for private groundworks, the MOT approval signifies that Type 1 aggregates have the properties required to provide a safe and reliable sub base layer for your building project.

As well as being suitable for standard building projects such as patios or driveways, Type 1 MOT is also perfect for trench filling, backfilling and over-site fills.
