Granite is a prestige material, used in projects to produce impressions of elegance and quality. The rock most often quarried as a "dimension stone" (a natural rock material that has been cut into blocks or slabs of specific length, width and thickness). Granite is hard enough to resist most abrasion, strong enough to bear significant weight, inert enough to resist weathering and it accepts a brilliant polish. These characteristics make it a very desirable and useful dimension stone.
What is Construction Aggregate?
Aggregate stone, also known as "construction aggregate" is a categorisation of coarse partical material which is commonly used for commercial based projects such as the usage of sand and gravel. We use aggregate for a selection of our construction projects as listed below. For more information, visit our commercial section for more details.
Aggregates are the most mined form of material in the world and are a component of composite materials such as asphalt and concrete. Aggregate is used as a reinforcement to add strength to the composite material. This is a result of the conductivity value of the high hydraulics compared to most soils. Aggregates are most commonly used for drainage applications for example, in drains, septic drain fiels, retaining walls and road side edges.
Where Can Aggregate Be Used?
The aggregate stone can be used for various different applications in residential spaces and public or commercial landscapes.
