- While these two terms are often used interchangeably, concrete and cement are actually quite different. Firstly, cement is an ingredient in concrete, while concrete is a mixture of aggregates (such as gravel and stone), cement, and water.
- A notable property of concrete is that it gets stronger as the water and cement harden and bind to the aggregates, which is an ongoing process that continues for years.
MPAs, or Megapascals, are the units used to measure the strength and resistance to stress of concrete.
To measure the cubic capacity of anything, you need to measure three of its dimensions, namely: length, breadth, and height. These 3 numbers should then be multiplied by each other to determine the cubic volume of readymix concrete you will need (LENGTH X BREADTH X HEIGHT = M3).
The general/universal formula is LENGTH x WIDTH x DEPTH. You are more that welcome to phone the office for assistance.
Our service provides you with 45 minutes to offload readymix concrete from the truck. After that, we will charge an additional R500.00 (excl VAT) per 30 minutes.
While standard concrete mix can be used for swimming pools, we offer a mix called A POOLMIX which, as its name suggests, is exclusively designed for constructing swimming pools.
It is dryer and stickier (giving it what we call a ‘peanut butter consistency’) and is ideal for vertical walls in pools.
We do, and they come from external companies that we use on the daily.
We offer 24m, 32m, 36m, and 42m BOOM pumps, as well as STATIC pumps for hire.
