Red Rock Aggregates

Red rock is available in several sizes grades or can be produced to specification on request.

Red rock exhibits good properties for a wide range of applications from simple loose metal driveways and garden surrounds to concrete systems, hot mix systems, roading and footpath systems.

For concrete applications, Red Rock is light, strong and produces durable hard concrete. Durability rating is 8 on the MOH's scale and Red Rock is resistant to chemical activity.

Red Rock aggregates have been successfully applied in the roading industry with applications including roundabouts, motorway edging, traffic islands and cycleways.

Red Rock aggregates are sampled and batch tested on a regular basis and source property measures are taken annually.
