Ready Mixed Concrete
L&S Concrete is an integral part of L&S Waste Management Limited. We provide ready mixed concrete and floor screed using our fleet of volumetric mobile batching plants. The use of volumetric batching and continuous mixing is well proven and has many advantages over traditional drum type mixers that rely on static batching plants.
Once arriving on site, the ingredients are continuously metered and proportioned through calibrated controls volumetrically into the auger. This in turn homogeneously combines the ingredients to produce concrete.
The method allows the operator to mix any amount of fresh concrete on site, to any mix design with no waste. The mix design can also be changed instantly to produce different types of concrete from the same load.
The following information is extracted from BS 8500, and will assist when specifying the precise concrete for any particular application. Select your application from the left hand column and match it with the suitable concrete type on the right. If you require assistance please contact us by email or telephone our customer service centre.
