What Is MOT Type 1 Sub Base? 

MOT Type 1 refers to a specific classification of aggregate material meticulously engineered to meet rigorous specifications. Typically composed of crushed rock, such as limestone or granite, MOT Type 1 boasts exceptional load-bearing capabilities and compaction characteristics, making it an ideal candidate for sub-base applications.

The term "MOT" originates from the Ministry of Transport, the UK governmental body historically responsible for setting construction standards.

Ultimately, the primary function of MOT Type 1 Sub Base lies in its role as a foundational layer in construction projects. Acting as a stable platform, it distributes load forces evenly, mitigates ground movement, and enhances structural integrity.

Please note the supplied product may arrive in shades of grey to brown.

It should also be noted that the product contains moisture, which means that the weight stated on each bag varies from shipment to shipment, however, the product quality always remains the same.

Weight may vary by +/- 5%. 


Where Is MOT Sub Base Type 1 Used? 

  • Road surfaces
  • Pavements
  • Driveways and paths
  • Car parks
  • Patio base
  • Garden paths
  • Trench fills
  • Over-site fills


MOT Type 1 Sub Base Benefits

  • Use on gardens, patios and driveways
  • Comes in bulk bag of 800kg+
  • For both commercial and domestic use
  • Approved by The Ministry of Transport
  • Meets the requirement of the Department of Transport Specification for highway works
  • Excellent load-bearing properties 


MOT Performance Characteristics

  • Load-Bearing Capacity: Engineered to withstand substantial compressive forces, MOT Type 1 Sub Base serves as a robust substrate capable of supporting heavy loads without succumbing to deformation or structural compromise.
  • Compaction Efficiency: Exhibiting excellent compaction characteristics, this material facilitates uniform densification upon application of mechanical compaction methods, ensuring superior stability and resistance to settlement.
  • Permeability and Drainage: The judiciously graded particle size distribution of MOT Type 1 Sub Base fosters optimal permeability, enabling efficient drainage of surface water and mitigating the risk of hydrostatic pressure buildup.
  • Frost Resistance: Endowed with inherent frost-resistant properties, this material remains resilient in sub-zero temperatures, safeguarding against frost-heave-induced damage and preserving structural integrity in cold-climate regions.


MOT Bag Weight

The weight of each bag varies hugely. There is moisture in each shipment, which can seriously impact the weight and volume stated.

If you've ordered bulk bags of MOT before you'll know that one bag might be a lot heavier than another, especially if you depend on manual labour. Contact our team for more information, more specifications and, as ever, efficient service


MOT 1 Sub Base Appearance

MOT Type 1 is a quality product made from naturally occurring materials such as limestone and granite. 

No matter what material your MOT is made from, you can expect great product value. When it comes to strong sub bases, both stones can do the job perfectly.

Once compacted, this product is extremely hardwearing. In most cases, customers will not be able to see the large-size aggregates or even a texture view once the product has been compressed. 

Please note that the product supplied comes from a natural source and may vary in colour. 


How Much Does a Bulk Bag of Type 1 Cover?

In general, a bulk bag of MOT will cover approximately 8m2 at a depth laid of 50mm.
