Asphalt Paving Services by Mor-Sports Group

What we attach numerous names to; asphalt, asphalt paving, bitumen, tarmacadam, macadam, is simply a combination of a bitumen/asphalt binder mixed with aggregates of differing sizes to a range of mixes which is used by us to produce Asphalt pavements, sports bases, paving, roads and pathways.

The old myth of "boys from the black stuff" could not be further from the truth. The process of laying an asphalt pavement is a highly skilled specialist operation with many pitfalls if not carried out by expert contractors such as Mor-Sports.

We are a proven paving contractor that has been involved in paving projects around the world!

With over 25 years in the construction industry, we can provide asphalt paving to suit your needs whether for a sports facility or your pathway, pavement, parking lot or driveway, providing a cost effective, affordable, "to specification" service for all clients whether residential or commercial.

Sports Surface Pavement / Bases

Pavements for sports surfaces fall into two distinct categories - "Porous or Non-Porous" and Mor-Sports can provide both to a proven, tested standard.

Either system can be used for:
  • Tennis
  • Basketball
  • Netball
  • Multi games
  • Playgrounds
  • Play areas

Mor-Sports can help you decide which is the most suitable asphalt base for your project, and also build the base to the chosen specification.

Porous Asphalt Tennis Court Base

Porous materials are usually selected for situations where an "all weather", free draining surface is required.

Our porous court construction method begins with building foundation or base layers. These provide support for the layers of porous asphalt and also allow water to drain away from the surface of the court.

The "clean" stone foundation layers or sub base provide drainage, allowing water to drain through.

The asphalt layers consist of aggregate, typically limestone, bound together with bitumen. Larger grades of aggregate are used for the base course and finer or smaller grades of aggregate are used for the wearing course.

Installation method

Porous asphalt courts are typically laid by hand, where hot asphalt is placed between steel bars, screeded and then rolled to compact the aggregate.

For greater accuracy of the finished surface, Mor-Sports use a specialist technique where dual-plane, laser levels are utilised when setting out the steel bars.

Another installation method can be used If there is a sufficiently site acces or a stable sub base or formation level is in place. Here, laser-automated machines can be employed to lay the asphalt.

For both methods, the asphalt must be rolled immediately to compact the aggregate before the bitumen cools.

For courts, which use porous asphalt as the playing surface the courts can be painted or sprayed with color.

Non-Porous Asphalt surfaces

These type of asphalt tennis courts bases are sometimes described as "dense asphalt" and may vary greatly in specification dependent upon the location in the world. They are commonly used as a base for the acrylic surfacing system.

Mor-Sports has experience of asphalt pavements in both the southern and northern hemisphere.

Both differ greatly due to the climatic conditions and Mor-Sports has a detailed understanding of the requirements for both environments.

Typically, a UK base needs to be robust to cope with, and withstand the extremes of the frost thaw cycle.

To ensure that the asphalt base built for hard courts can cope with the two extremes, we build to the tfollowing proven specification:

  • A sub-base of road stone is installed over the prepared sub-grade to a compacted minimum depth of 8" (200mm). The fill material is placed in layers and is compacted with a powered steel wheel roller. At this point it is crucial that an accurate surface tolerance is achieved.
  • To ensure this, Mor-Sports carry out this procedure using a laser controlled grading machine.
  • Then two layers of asphalt/macadam are then laid.
  • The Base Course is laid onto the prepared sub-base. This layer shall typically have large stone aggregate sizes and is compacted to an approximate thickness of just under 2" (50mm). This is laid to a specific surface tolerance set by ourselves.
  • A final layer of asphalt called the Wearing Course is then laid. This smaller aggregate size is laid to a minimum compacted layer thickness of 1" (25mm).
  • This final layer is laid to an extremely accurate tolerance. Our expert and experienced installers are one of the few companies who can provide you with an asphalt pavement to this challenging specification. A detailed base specification is available upon request.

Compare this specification to a typical Florida USA base. Typically, the Floridian base needs to be less robust as it does not have to bear the extremes of the frost thaw cycle.

Regardless, we ensure that the asphalt base built for hard courts in Florida are built to the following proven specification:

  • A sub-base of road stone is installed over the prepared sub-grade to a compacted minimum depth of between 4" - 6". The fill material is placed in layers and is compacted with a powered steel wheel roller. It is crucial that an accurate surface tolerance is achieved.
  • Mor-Sports carry out this procedure using a laser controlled grading machine.
  • One layer of asphalt/macadam is then laid.
  • A layer of asphalt called the Wearing Course is then laid. This smaller aggregate size is laid to a minimum compacted layer thickness of 1" (25mm).
  • This final layer is laid to an extremely accurate tolerance. Our expert and experienced installers are one of the few companies who can provide you with an asphalt pavement to this challenging specification. A detailed base specification is available upon request.
