Sourcing and supplying these aggregates keeps our fleet of lorries busy. But which of our 40+ aggregate types are most commonly requested?

Type 1 Limestone

As a quarried material that has not been used before, it is classed as a primary aggregate. Limestone can be supplied in very vast quantities, making it ideal for projects that require large volumes of sub base aggregate. Type 1 limestone meets the Department of Transport’s Specification for Highway Works, clause 803 (SHW 803). It is considered the benchmark for quality and the most frequently used sub base aggregate beneath highways and construction projects of any size.

20mm Ballast

Toon Materials’ all in ballast is a primary sea dredged aggregate, a blend of 0/4mm sharp sand and <20mm gravel. It is readily available which makes it a cost-effective option for making concrete and as a general drainage fill for construction and sports projects.

6F5 Crushed Concrete

6F5 crushed concrete is a recycled general fill aggregate. It is an ‘as crushed’ product that is most commonly used for capping, laid over terram to raise and level natural ground ready for a Type 1 sub base. We also supply Type 1 crushed concrete, which is graded to the Department of Transport’s Specification for Highway Works.
