Browse our frequently asked questions to find out about concrete slump, how to lay the concrete and how to place an order. If you've got any more questions, please get in touch with us.

Do I need to know what material I require?

No, not necessarily. Your builder or building inspector will advise in cases of poor ground conditions otherwise our sales/technical department will be able to suggest suitable concrete for your particular application. Guidance is also available on request form our sales office.

What is a concrete slump?

The concrete slump refers to the material's consistency – how wet it is. Consistency is classified from S1 (0-40mm) through to S4 (160-220mm). The higher the value, the easier the material will be to work with.

What size are the delivery trucks?

The size of the delivery mixer will depend on a number of factors including the quantity ordered, access to the site and site conditions. Guidance can be given by the sales office.

How do I lay the concrete?

For guidance on best practice in laying and curing concrete, please refer to the Ready-Mixed Concrete DIY Usage Guide available on request form our sales office. As a general rule, it is advised that concrete is placed within two hours of batching at the plant.

How can I place an order?

Orders can be taken over the telephone by our Sales Department, by fax, in person at any of our depots, or in writing.

How much concrete will I need?

For quantities required, the material calculator is available for guidance, alternatively our sales/technical department will be able to help.

How will I get the concrete from the truck?

This is very important. You will need to consider where in relation to the road, the concrete is to be placed. The truck mixers are fitted with chutes which extend 7-8ft from the centre of the truck. If the chutes are of insufficient length, you may need to wheelbarrow the concrete or hire a specialist concrete pump. As a guide, 1m3 of concrete equates to approximately 25 wheelbarrows. When considering man power it’s also worth noting that 1m3 weighs approximately 2.4Tonnes.

What will the price include?

The price given will be based on full, delivered loads including VAT. Consideration should be given to extra costs which may be incurred including part-load charges and waiting time where trucks are held on site in excess of 30 minutes.
