Daltons Sub Base Metal

Grade: 0-7mm. Daltons Sub Base Metal (PAP7) is the ideal solution for any situation where a firm sub base is required. For use under pavers, cobbles, slabs, drainage pipes, water tanks or anywhere a hard sub base is required.

  • Easily spread and easily compacted
  • If laying pavers, a thin layer (5-10mm) of Daltons Washed Sand (No.1) will make it easy to bed the pavers and prevent breakage.
