X-Roc SlabPatch Flowable is a single component, fast setting, fluid micro concrete manufactured from selected cements, aggregates and additives and has extremely high durability.
X-Roc MicroCrete is a single component, shrinkage compensated, fluid micro concrete manufactured from selected cements, aggregates and additives. It can be used at a wide range of work abilities. When used as a fluid micro concrete it is self-compacting. It has exceptional resistance to carbonation, chloride ingress, sulfate attack and freeze thaw attack.
Karin Johns, Freelance Journalist, investigates the effectiveness of pre-cast interlocking concrete block retaining walls in reducing highway traffic noise, as well as the urgency of reducing noise pollution – unwanted human-created sound that disrupts the environment – in South Africa. How concrete acoustic barriers work According to British Precast, trade body for the United Kingdom precast […]
Hebel is a lightweight autoclaved aerated concrete which is completely cured, inert and stable form of calcium silicate hydrate. It is a structural material, approximately one quarter the weight of conventional concrete, composed of minute cells which give the material light weight and high thermal insulation properties. It is available as blocks and pre-cast reinforced units, i.e. floors, roofs, walls and lintels...
The Concrete Manufacturers Association (CMA) is the primary representative of the precast concrete industry. Precast concrete is a building material which slots very comfortably into the modern world of fast track and modular construction, in many instances leading the way with innovative technologies and applications. The CMA’s promotional activities target architects, engineers, developers, contractors and property owners and the pooled knowledge and expertise of its members fosters an environment which encourages the development of innovative, environmentally and community-friendly products. The Association’s prime focus is on ensuring that its members’ products are applied correctly and that the product manufactured by the members is of good quality and compliance to the relevant product specifications.
Concrete Canvas is part of a class of construction materials called Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats (GCCMs). It is a flexible, concrete impregnated fabric that harden on hydration to form a thin, durable, waterproof and fire-resistant concrete layer. It is used in channel lining, slope protection, bund lining, remediation of existing concrete structures, and culvert lining.
Concrete masonry has wide applications in modern industrial, commercial, educational and residential buildings. The main types of masonry walls dealt with in these guidelines are: single leaf walls using solid units, single leaf walls using hollow units and cavity walls. The details shown in this publication are intended merely as a guide. Each construction situation is unique and there are many factors to be considered before a detail is finalised – far too many for inclusion here. The purpose of good detailing is to assist in achieving sound construction and a buildable structure that will perform well in service. The following factors must be taken into account when detailing for concrete masonry structures...
A manhole is defined as a “small covered opening, giving access beneath”. In Engineering terms “beneath” is normally a vertical shaft giving access to a buried pipeline or other underground structure. This publication deals with manholes constructed using precast concrete sections.
