Tarmacadam Surface Specification

Macadam surfaces are popular for schools, sports clubs, playgrounds and households. This is because they are cost effective and require low maintenance. Each tarmacadam surface specification varies, some organisations ask for tarmacadam to be installed for pathways and walking areas but some facilities also want them to be installed for sport courts and leisure pitches. Tarmac surfacing for domestic use has a range of benefits. It’s very easy and cheap to maintain, it is long lasting and durable and can be used in all weather conditions. The tarmacadam specification used for domestic driveway use is porous, as it allows rain water to pass through without the surfacing flooding. This porosity and the benefits make tarmac surfaces ideal for driveways and urban areas.

Tarmac Sports Court Specification

Tarmac sports court specification designs are also very durable and make them great for all-weather outdoor sports use. This makes excellent qualities for sports pitches because the UK has a lot of rain and can cause games to be called off, if facilities have these type of surfaces they are able to continue the sport games without being rained off. Tarmacadam has great performance characteristics for MUGAs, basketball, tennis and netball but football is commonly performed on them as well. The cost of installing tarmacadam is dependent on the type of specification you have chosen, area size, location and existing ground conditions. Contact us today by filling in our enquiry form and we’ll be able to send over some product sheets and talk about costs for tarmacadam surfaces in more detail.

Macadam Surfacing Designs

To have tarmacadam surfaces installed, a stone sub base must be rolled onto the surfacing, there must be small gaps in the stone to make the ground porous. The sub base chosen depends on what the surface will be used for. Macadam stone is mixed with tar and poured onto a stone sub base. Macadam surfacing designs can be unique and customized to meet your specification and your chosen surface that you want. The UK has started becoming increasingly popular for coloured tarmac surfaces to be installed, this is because there are a wide range of colours available and it can make dull areas brighten up.

Colouring Tarmac Surfaces

The process of colouring tarmac surfaces is quick and simple to do; it may be completed in a short amount of time. Macadam surfacing designs can make a facility or organisation quickly renovate and revitalise their existing dark surfacing and it is a cheaper option. As well as having coloured tarmac installed, existing macadam surfaces may be re-coloured either to their original colour or new colours. This can make an old worn out surface look new and fresh and in a simple process. Playgrounds and schools have had thermoplastic macadam designs installed onto their surfaces, this could be for education reasons and because they also add fun activities for children to play. These types of designs are quick and easy ways to refurbish macadam surfaces and improve the look of your facilities surface.
