The UK is facing an ongoing challenge, with local authorities up and down the country reporting failing road structures and ironworks. Manhole covers, road gullies and duct covers, if not bedded properly, can become damaged, leading to uneven roads or pavements, as well as failing pipework beneath the ground.
It is therefore crucial to ensure that ironwork reinstatement is carried out properly, to prevent against future failings. Ironwork installation is usually carried out as part of temporary roadworks, and so carrying out the work efficiently and correctly is crucial.
Thankfully, UltraCrete’s Ironwork Reinstatement System has been used on the UK’s road network for over four decades, and has been independently approved since 2005. Our products for installing ironwork have been performance-tested and are PAS and HAPAS-certified; the ironwork reinstatement system consists of bedding mortars, backfill flowable concrete, cold and hot-lay asphalts and thermoplastic overbanding.
Our constant efforts to upgrade and streamline the ironwork installation and reinstatement processes have led to the creation of UltraCrete’s Mortar Buoy, an innovative, inflatable installation aid which allows an efficient and seamless finish to the bedding around the chamber.
