External Concrete Floors
For many years TechnicConcrete Floors Ltd have recognised that external concrete paving has received little guidance in how to construct quality concrete hard standings
Far too often it has become common practise to allow the ground worker to construct the external paving on a piecemeal basis to suit the programme of the ground worker.
It is only when the client becomes aware that his investment is failing due to poor detailing, lack of concrete knowledge or inability to achieve designed falls that the so called savings made from not employing a concrete flooring specialist fades into insignificance.
TechnicConcrete Floors Ltd has four golden rules for achieving a quality durable concrete hard standing:
The slab is only as good as the ground it is laid upon
External paving should only be laid on a well rolled and consolidated hardcore sub-base. Free from soft spots and heaving and rutting.
Quality of Concrete
Concrete should be well graded and particular attention taken to cement type and content kg/m3 as well as water/cement ratio. Due to the exposure to numerous freeze/thaw cycle’s provision for either air entrainment or the use of poly fibres should be allowed for to satisfy durability.
It is essential to create falls that enable surface rainwater to disperse quickly to pre- designed gullies and drainage channels. This is particularly important in freezing temperatures to prevent ice forming upon the slab. It is essential that an agreed bay layout be issued taking into account drainage points, docking heights, door access points and high point areas.
Textured Finish and Curing
Whilst requiring to be both hard wearing and durable external concrete paving finish must offer some skid resistance to both pedestrian and vehicular movement particularly in wet conditions. Whilst a uniform brush finish can be aesthetically pleasing it is the irregularity of the texture of the surface that offers much more technical benefit
As with all insitu cast concrete curing is essential to prevent moisture loss. TechnicConcrete Floors Ltd carry out a curing regime utilising spray on acrylic curing membrane to combat the effects of plastic shrinkage reducing potential early drying out of the slab and assisting in reducing the incidence of surface dusting.
