Granite Curling Stones
Not only is there Celtic rivalry on the Rugby pitch as Specialist Aggregates discover when investigating the origin of curling stones. The traditional source of curling stones and indeed the source of the stones used in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics is the “Blue Hone” granite from the island of Ailsa Craig in the Firth of Clyde. However, in more recent times a granite from North Wales has found favour particularly in North America and Canada.

Dear Specialist Aggregates - can you tell us anything about Barra Shell?
The shells are no longer worked on Barra in the Outer Hebrides, however, Specialist Aggregates can offer a similar cleaned shell alternative for the repair and renovation of original Barra Shell rendering.

Why is granite so durable?
Dear Spaggs,

Why is granite so durable?
Our resident geologist says that the durability of granite comes down to its mineralogical structure, which can only be effectively seen when magnified.

No wonder granites are the preferred option for railway track ballast,and for high-end architectural use.

Lytag® provides an effective solution to the ancient problem of soil compaction.

The study of soil is a complex subject, however, the principles of compaction with regard to horticulture are relatively straight forward. A well tended soil will be friable with gaps between the particles which allow for the migration of water, nutrients and the passage of oxygen vital for healthy plant growth.

Plants can survive coppicing or even defoliation by a roaming dinosaur, but once a soil becomes compacted pore spaces are lost, roots find it difficult to penetrate, rainwater runs off rather than soaks in and the absence of oxygen leads to anaerobic conditions leading to poor root development.

Leca® LWA provides an effective solution to under floor refurbishment. brbr Problems have arisen in late 1940's and 50's housing, where a shortage of imported wood to facilitate the suspended type floors that had been in vogue pre-war. were overcome by building up the under-floor with mining waste and to cap it off with what was often a poorly specified and uncontrolled concrete.

The only effective solution is to remove the old sub-floor and to replace with a non sulfate bearing hardcore: for example Leca® LWA insulation fill and top off with modern quality controlled concrete.
