Frequently Asked Questions
  • How long before the concrete goes off?

    The chemical reaction that takes place within a concrete mix begins as soon as the cement and water are mixed together. This means that dependant on the travel time from our concrete plant to your delivery location, usually you will have between 1 – 2 hours once the concrete arrives on your job to place, level, compact and finish the mix. Higher strength mixes will generally give a little less working time than lower grades. Please ensure you have enough people to complete your project on time. We do offer high performance products which gain early high strengths, when faster strength gains are required. If you’re unsure about any of this information please refer to our How to guides or contact us.

  • How much does a cubic metre of concrete weigh?

    One cubic metre of concrete weighs around 2.4 tonnes. That equates to about 25-30 wheelbarrow loads per 1m3!

  • I'm using wheelbarrows to move the concrete during delivery - how long will it take?

    We do not suggest the use of wheelbarrows to offload the concrete. There are approximately (depending on the size of the barrows) 25-30 wheelbarrow loads to 1m3 of concrete (1m3 being the equivalent of 2.4 tonnes) and you only have 60 minutes to offload the concrete before you start to incur additional waiting time charges. It is far less labour intensive, and usually more cost effective to hire a concrete pump. For further info, please refer to our How to guides 

  • How do I get the concrete from the truck to the hole? (prepared area for concrete installation) ?

    You would need to assess your site to see if it is possible for our trucks to pull up and discharge directly to the hole. Our Truck Dimensions page should help you with this. Where this is not possible (for example you require the concrete to the rear of the property) you may need to hire a concrete pump to place the concrete. This is always advised where possible over wheelbarrowing the concrete as it is much faster, cleaner and less labour intensive. Please see our How to guides for further advice. 

  • What do I do if I need to cancel my order?

    If you need to cancel your order please get in contact with us as soon as possible. We require a minimum of 24 hours notice when cancelling a delivery. Cancellations with less then 24 hours notice will be subject to a cancellation fee. If you have any questions regarding cancellations, please feel free to contact us.

  • What are the hazards of wet concrete?

    Exposure to wet concrete can result in skin irritation or even first, second- or third-degree chemical burns. It is important to always wear full PPE. If your skin comes into contact with wet concrete wash with water immediately and seek medical advice. Read our H&S guidance for further support.

  • What precautions should I take when handling concrete?

    • Wear the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
    • Use the right tools to meet the needs of the job
    • Employ the correct techniques when laying
    • Have a washing station nearby
    • Wear additional PPE
    • Exercise caution around mixing equipment ensuring space available
    • Communicate with your team about the safety measures expected
    • Always stay aware of your surroundings and others

Watch our Health and Safety video

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

Wearing the right clothing to handle concrete is highly important and essential for your safety. You may be refused on site without the correct PPE with you. Minimum levels of correct PPE should be worn by everyone involved in the laying of the concrete delivery.

MINIMUM PPE:

  • Waterproof boots
  • Trousers
  • Gloves
  • Long sleeve top
  • Safety glasses

 

All should be worn to prevent any splashes getting on to the skin, face or eyes.

DO NOT WEAR SHORTS, SHORT SLEEVED TOPS OR OPEN SHOES LIKE FLIP FLOPS
