Service yards are very susceptible to damage from salt, frost and wheel movements. The top 10-25mm spalls away leaving an uneven surface for foot and forklift traffic. After carrying out surveys, we repaired two Asda yards , each yard approx 1000sq/m. The degree and extent of damage determines, along with falls on the site, the depth of concrete to be removed (usually between 30-40mm). Once planed the open graded asphalt is installed using specialist industrial products.
When the open graded asphalt (OGA) has cooled to 30 degrees, the micro silica and super plasticised grout is poured and permeates to the full depth of the OGA. Finally the area is finished very neatly with a squeegee. Full traffic can be allowed after 24 hours. Work on each yard was completed in four days.
