Introduction: When planning the construction of new industrial facilities, one crucial aspect that often requires careful consideration is the choice of paving material for roadways and parking areas. Tarmac, also known as asphalt, is pivotal in providing durable and reliable surfaces for industrial settings. In this blog post, Warrington Resin Solutions will explore tarmac’s significant role in newly built industrial facilities and its benefits.


The Characteristics of Tarmac

Tarmac is a popular choice for industrial facilities due to its unique properties:

  • Durability: Tarmac is renowned for its robustness and longevity. It can withstand heavy vehicle traffic, including trucks and industrial equipment, without significant wear and tear.
  • Quick Installation: Tarmac installation is often faster than that of other paving materials. This allows for quicker construction and reduces project downtime.
  • Smooth Surface: Tarmac provides a smooth and even surface, which is crucial for industrial facilities. It ensures safe and efficient transportation of goods and materials within the facility.
  • Excellent Load-Bearing Capacity: Tarmac is engineered to handle heavy loads without deformation, making it suitable for areas with constant heavy machinery and equipment use.
  • Low Maintenance: Tarmac requires minimal maintenance compared to other materials. Regular cleaning and occasional sealing can prolong its lifespan.
  • Customisation: Tarmac can be customised to suit the specific needs of the industrial facility, including variations in thickness and surface treatments.


Key Applications of Tarmac in Industrial Facilities

  • Roads and Driveways: Tarmac is commonly used to construct internal roads, driveways, and access routes within industrial facilities. Its smooth surface ensures smooth traffic flow.
  • Parking Areas: Tarmac provides an ideal surface for parking lots and areas where vehicles are parked for extended periods. Its durability can withstand the weight of parked vehicles.
  • Loading Bays: Loading and unloading areas require a strong and stable surface. Tarmac offers the necessary load-bearing capacity for these critical zones.
  • Walkways and Pedestrian Paths: For the safety and convenience of employees and visitors, tarmac can be used to create well-defined and easily navigable pedestrian pathways.
  • Runways and Aprons: Regarding airports and aviation-related facilities within industrial complexes, tarmac is the preferred choice for runways and aprons due to its ability to withstand aircraft loads.


Benefits of Tarmac in Industrial Facilities

  • Safety: The smooth and even tarmac surface reduces the risk of accidents caused by uneven or damaged pavement.
  • Cost-Effective: Tarmac offers excellent value for money, as its initial installation cost is often lower than alternative materials, and its longevity minimises ongoing maintenance expenses.
  • Efficiency: A well-paved tarmac surface ensures the efficient movement of vehicles and equipment within the facility, enhancing productivity.
  • Durability: Tarmac’s ability to withstand heavy traffic and harsh weather conditions means fewer disruptions and repairs over time.


Conclusion: Tarmac is a versatile and durable paving material crucial in constructing newly built industrial facilities. Its characteristics make it an ideal choice for these facilities’ roads, parking areas, loading bays, and other surfaces.
