Demorock® crushed concrete is suitable for use at a wide range of earthworks sites, such as road and roadway construction, parking lots, storage fields and railway yards. If needed, you can have Demorock® crushed concrete produced by Purkupiha that meets quality and environmental technology requirements delivered directly to your construction site.

Demorock® aggregate is crushed concrete intended for earthworks that is produced from the concrete obtained from the demolition of buildings. Deconstruction and the proper crushing technique ensure that no unsuitable materials are mixed up with the concrete.

Demorock® aggregate is available as Demorock® 0/90 and Demorock® 0/45 products. The products are CE marked in accordance with the harmonised product standard SFS-EN 13242.

Demorock® aggregate is suitable for earthworks with regard to its construction and environmental technology characteristics. This is ensured through quality control of the production of crushed concrete. To support quality control, the company has prepared an internal quality management manual that covers the entire production chain of crushed concrete.

Annually, we produce around 120,000 tonnes of usable Demorock® crushed concrete at our demolition sites nationwide. The production, quality control and sales of Demorock® crushed concrete are part of our ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 quality and environmentally certified operating system.

Crushed concrete is suitable for numerous construction projects
