Product Description

Take the weight off applying sub-bases by leaving the weight up to MOT Type 1. MOT Type 1 is a hardwearing crushed aggregate material that functions as a sub-base for a wide range of construction needs including building bases, driveways, and paving foundations. 

In essence, MOT Type 1 serves as a load-bearing base layer, offering a smooth surface upon which to apply asphalt, concrete, shingle or block paving. 

No matter what the ground conditions are, MOT can fill the gaps and provide a long-lasting basis for tarmac, concrete, or any other construction materials. It should 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. 


MOT Type 1 Sub Base Applications

Construction companies and homeowners from all over the UK rely on the versatility and excellent load-bearing properties of MOT. 

Each bulk bag has been approved for use as a firm sub-base, meaning if you have any paving foundations planned, you'll almost certainly be getting your hands on a bag.

Sub bases are used in almost every kind of construction project; they sit below a flat surface such as a driveway or pavement to provide structural support.

When MOT is mixed with other building bases, the resulting mixture has a strong internal structure. To attest to this, MOT Type 1 is approved by The Ministry of Transport for use as a sub-base in the following:

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


MOT Type 1 Hardcore Composition

MOT Type 1 bulk bags contain crushed aggregate materials such as limestone or granite. With a good mix of crushed solid and fine materials in each mixture, the large aggregates and fine ones range anywhere from 0-40mm in size. 


What Does MOT Type 1 Mean?

MOT stands for Ministry of Transport. Both the large and small stones inside the mixture meet the standards set out by the Ministry for a compact sub-base.


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 grey 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. 

MOT is a great mix for people who need strong bases; it is not designed for decorative purposes.

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


Type 1 Hardcore Benefits Coverage

If you want to lay good quality aggregates in a hassle-free way, look no further. MOT is known for being easy to install.

It is perfect for people who want bulk-delivered products; in our bulk delivery service we offer 850kg+ bags - they aren't small bags, by any means.

Once the bulk bag is in place, you can simply cut it down the centre and allow the big and small aggregate materials to flood out. 

Level the ground, install weed membranes and artificial grass on top, and the process is complete.

We're here to help you check off your project list. For more bulk building materials, check out here.


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.
