Rock is one of the most useful construction aggregates around, for so many different reasons. It is an important component of most concrete products, it helps prevent erosion and facilitate drainage, and it is also a great building material to help create a seasoned and rustic look for homes and backyards.
When it comes to rock products, our team at Arkansas Aggregates has been offering one-stop shopping to contractors since 2005, and we are proud to be the southeast’s leading supplier! Our products are all mined at our Little Rock quarry from a major outcropping of Nepheline Syenite, which is the predominant mineral for the region, and is similar to granite. Each year, we mine and ship over two million tons of rock products, and no order is too big, or too small. Here are some of our most popular products:
Fill Gravel-Whether you need concrete stone, ArDOT Class 7 base, or 57 or 67 stone, we can fill orders of any size, and ship them to you right away by truck, rail, or barge. And we can also custom grind gravel to your specifications if you need a nonstandard gradation. Ballast-Railroad ballast is an important part of keeping tracks safe. The stones lock together to anchor railroad ties in place, while allowing enough flexibility to shift under the weight of a fully loaded train. Ballast stones also play an important part in keeping tracks from accumulating water or vegetation.
Rip Rap Stone-Properties adjacent to shorelines or hillsides are particularly vulnerable to erosion, which is why it is important to protect them with rip rap stones. The stones average 10”-18” in diameter, and protect the soil underneath from washing away during the frequent heavy rainfall that is so common in the southeastern United States.
