Hardstands are crucial for protecting valuable assets like vehicles and machinery from damage caused by cracked surfaces, stone chips, sand, or dirt which they may suffer from if left out in open areas with a difficult terrain. They eliminate the risk of vehicles getting bogged down and are ideal for areas where heavy vehicles, machinery, plant, and storage containers are parked for significant periods. They can also be used in areas where vehicle and plant traffic are constant, such as industrial yards, boatyards, storage yards, container storage, car sales yards, and vehicle depots.

Among the various materials used for hardstand construction, hot mix asphalt stands out for its high durability. The mixture of aggregate and bitumen is laid over a compacted base material and can be shaped to any required area.
