A total concrete flooring service including reinforcement fixing, pump and placement and Using the latest laser screeding technology in concrete laying we can pour, level and finish larger areas in less time than conventional methods at a higher tolerance and cost effective construction.
We specialise in industrial, agricultural floors, yards, slurry lagoons,silage clamps,car parks.Silo / tank bases, roads and service yards,grain stores.
What We Offer
All constructed and finished to any specification and to the highest standard.
As our operatives are all in house standards and training is kept to the highest level, it’s our name and we do not sub contract works like other flooring companies.
We will design or assist for any requirements.
TYPES OF FINISH
POWER FLOATED CONCRETE
Power floated floors are hard wearing and require no further finishes, however, resins, polishing and screeds can all be applied to the surface. Why Order Power Floated Concrete with us? We consider the finished use of the floor and can design the structural floors to meet your requirements.
Before the concrete can be power floated it has to be left to harden, so a concrete installed in the morning cannot usually be power floated until late afternoon dependent on the mix and outside conditions. Power-floating produces a flat smooth dense finish. Min depths are 75mm bonded, 100mm un-bonded for foot traffic and designed between 150mm – 350mm dependant on loadings for trafficked areas. Drying times for foot traffic are 24 hours, the concrete dries at approximately 1mm per day and should not be force dried. These type of floors can be reinforced with Mesh, plastic or steel fibres, dependant on use and loadings.
BRUSHED FINISHED CONCRETE
Brushed Concrete is typically used as a wearing surface on external yards producing high slip resistance and allowing the water to drain to the falls created. Brushed finishes are suitable for areas trafficked either by vehicular or foot traffic and are also suitable for many types of mechanical handling plant. This type of finish is usually seen to service yards or large industrial parks, and is usually installed with a trowelled margin to the perimeter of the slab.
A brushed finish is obtained by pulling a brush over the surface of the fresh concrete, after the surface has been levelled and allowed to harden slightly. The type of finish obtained will depend upon the coarseness of the brush bristles and the length and shape of the tufts. Brushed finishes are suitable for areas trafficked either by vehicular or foot traffic and are also suitable for many types of mechanical handling plant.
Minimum depths are dependant on the weights and loadings being applied to the surface, however due to freeze thaw on external applications, the depth is typically 200mm. Drying times are 24 hours for foot traffic and 96 hours for light traffic dependant on mix designs used. We only recommend mesh or bar reinforcement in theses applications due to the risk of fibres at the surface oxidizing and blowing the surface.
HAND TROWELLED FINISH
Easi-float concrete results in a hard wearing finished surface, suitable for computer floors, Carpet floors or tiled areas. Concrete is laid and levelled either via pump or discharged of the back of the wagon, and when the concrete has been levelled by tamp, the concrete is hand floated with an Easi-float to give a smooth finish. Whilst this finish is not as smooth as power floated, its is still suitable for carpet, screed or tiles.
Min depths are 75mm bonded, 100mm un-bonded for foot traffic and designed between 150mm – 350mm dependant on loadings for trafficked areas. Drying times for foot traffic are 24 hours, the concrete dries at approximately 1mm per day and should not be force dried. These type of floors can be reinforced with Mesh, plastic or steel fibres, dependant on use and loadings.
Dappled concrete can be laid in large areas quickly. The concrete used is very fluid so the surface finish is flatter then most concrete installations.
A fluid concrete is installed using laser levels or guide rails to achieve the correct level, then a metal bar is lowered and raised through the concrete at right angles to drive out the air leaving a smooth surface. The minimum depth for a dappled concrete is 75mm bonded and 100mm un-bonded, this must be reinforced with a steel mesh or fibres dependent on the application.
Drying times are 1 day per mm as a guide. The surface is suitable for tiles, raised access floors and polished concrete without requiring further applications. Normally used in foot traffic areas. Typical applications offices, schools, shops base slabs for modular buildings such as flat pack houses.
Tamped Concrete is a none slip really course finish, suitable for maximum grip for traffic, this is a cost effective concrete laying solution generally used in steep hard to traffic areas.
A tamped finish is produced by raising and lowering a beam to compact the surface of the concrete creating a rough surface. Minimum depths are dependant on the design and use of the slab, typically 200mm.
The concrete can take foot traffic after 24 hours. We only recommend Mesh or bar reinforcement as steel fibres are not for external installations.
