As part of Rugby Polo Club’s driveway upgrade, Aggregate Industries was specified to supply over 1,500 tonnes of asphalt.
Feedback revealed that the driveway was causing damage to expensive horseboxes due to the uneven and cracked surface. Therefore, the club decided to re-surface the driveway with a more resistant material.
With durability and high resistance crucial, Aggregate Industries was specified to supply 280 tonnes of 10ml SuperFlex surface course material. SuperFlex was recommended by Aggregate Industries for its cracked-resistant properties and low texture depth.
Philip Baker, owner of the Rugby Polo Club said: “The damage to the original driveway had been caused by the sheer volume of heavy horseboxes and trailers using it over the years, so it was essential that we found something that could survive such demands in the future.”
Luke Thomas, Territory Sales Manager for Asphalt West Midlands at Aggregate Industries, said: “SuperFlex asphalt is particularly suitable for heavily trafficked low speed roads. This, together with its durability and high resistance, made it the perfect choice for Rugby Polo Club’s driveway.”
The next phase of the club’s investment will see the resurfacing of the carpark with SuperFlex.
