You can not see into the concrete mixer drum but our drivers will be happy to run a small amount of concrete down the lorry shoot so you can have a quick look at the consistency. Please be mindful this is only possible if you are offloading the truck as a 'straight tip' into an area or you place a wheelbarrow under the shoot to catch the test concrete. Read our how-to on the day of delivery for more information.
It's simple, 'SLUMP' means the consistency of the concrete mix before it sets. Consistency ranges from dry to wet concrete. The lower the slump number the drier the concrete. We supply concrete in four slump classes: S1, S2, S3, S4. Dry concrete mix = S1 and a fluid wet mix = S4. You will need to select the correct slump to ensure easy placement of your concrete depending on where and how the concrete is being placed and for what purpose. Check out our blog on slumps for more information.
