Mix On-Site Concrete That’s Perfect For Your Pour
Success for construction projects, large or small, often comes down to getting the concrete mix right. This can be impacted by the weather, the experience of your concrete suppler, and the freshness of the concrete you’re using. Volumetric concrete mixers remove the guesswork and minimise waste. If you like the sound of that, read on; the Custom Concrete team offers 5 benefits of Volumetric Concrete.
What is Volumetric Concrete?
This type of concrete is normally mixed on-site in volumetric concrete mixers. These are specialist trucks which transport the raw materials required to make concrete to your site. Once in place, the truck becomes a mobile batching plant as your pre-ordered concrete mix is prepared fresh for pouring exactly where you need it.
5 Benefits of Volumetric Concrete
Custom Concrete is an established volumetric concrete supplier; our clients are clear about the benefits that they experience when using site mixed concrete. We have selected the ones that we hear about most often:
- On-Site Control of Concrete Mix
- Scheduled Pouring You Can Rely On
- Sustainable Concrete Mixing
- Available For Any Size of Job
- Precision Ordering
1. On-Site Control of Concrete Mix
With a volumetric mixer, you’re in control of the pour. There is no waiting around for a ready-mixed delivery that may be delayed on the way. If the weather conditions require adjustments to the mix, they can be made there and then. And should you need slightly more or less concrete that you originally estimated, the volume can be tweaked. Volumetric concrete offers adaptability where site conditions require it.
2. Scheduled Pouring You Can Rely On
Once you have submitted your order and scheduled your delivery, you can rely on Custom Concrete to arrive on time with the raw ingredients for your pour. There is no danger of delays affecting the quality of your concrete, as is the case with ready-made concrete. A volumetric mixer produces the mix you want, where you want it, ready for you to pour on schedule.
3. Sustainable Concrete Mixing
Custom Concrete uses CEM-II eco-cement which minimises the carbon footprint of traditional cement production. Our mobile batching plant keeps delivery journeys down to a minimum as we are able to offer mixed batches to clients, and our pre-ordering system, using the Custom Concrete Calculator eliminates waste. We also use less water when washing down volumetric mixers than the amount required for agitator trucks.
4. Available For Any Size of Job
Custom Concrete delivers volumetric concrete to large construction sites, and residential DIY locations. We don’t add a surcharge for small deliveries; the size of the job makes no difference to us as we are only transporting the raw ingredients. Our trucks are 10 metres long, 2.5 metres wide and 4 metres high. If we are delivering to a residential address, we will check access in advance or recommend concrete pump hire where access is restricted.
5. Precision Ordering
Our clients at Custom Concrete appreciate the fact that they are able to order the exact amount of concrete required for the job. This eradicates waste, makes ordering more cost effective, and ensures that there is no concrete to dispose of once the pour is complete. If you have any queries around volume when ordering, our knowledgeable customer service team will be able to help.
