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.

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:
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.
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.
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:
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:
