Sand Processing Facility

Produced by - Adfil

Project Name:   Sand Processing Facility

Location: Devon, United Kingdom

Application: Hardstand

Aggregate Industries required the installation of a hard wearing external concrete pavement for a sand processing and stockpiling facility at Hillhead Quarry. The original reinforced concrete specification included two layers of steel mesh (A393) reinforcement to accommodate mobile plant operations. A macro synthetic fibre alternative was requested to ease installation, reduce project cost and ensure service life was assured.


  • Reduced construction time & significant cost savings
  • No reduced service life due to a chemical inert reinforcement
  • H&S hazards associated with steel mesh fixing are eliminated
  • Embedded CO2 reduced with 56%
