The ultimate porous asphalt for driveways and small parking areas

Combining excellent drainage with long term durability, ULTIDRIVE POROUS is designed for use on driveways and small parking areas. It helps?to eliminate the problem of surface water and can also help meet local?planning requirements.

The ULTIDRIVE POROUS asphalt range is incorporated into porous asphalt designed pavements. The asphalt pavement provides a surface water runoff to infiltrate across its entire porous asphalt surface into the granular layers. ULTIFLOW is our range of aggregates for use in SuDS.

ULTIDRIVE POROUS surface coarse asphalts are manufactured with advanced binder technology that when used in conjunction with the specially designed ULTIDRIVE POROUS binder, provides effective drainage and maintains long term durability.

ULTIDRIVE POROUS contractors are supported with a laying guide.

Coloured porous asphalt options are available in our Ulticolour range.

Ultidrive Porous - Large parking area

Tarmac Contracting were appointed as surfacing contractor for this project to build the new 4000m2 staff car park at this brewery in Monmouthshire. The new ULTIDRIVE POROUS surface provided a safe, all-weather parking area which would avoid surface water. It also met the client’s sustainability requirements by helping to manage rainwater at source and control its release into the surrounding environment.
