Why Use a Concrete Pump?
Why pump? Why not go down the traditional route and pour? Because quite simply, pumping is far more economical. It is also far faster and more versatile than the old-fashioned pouring methods.
Modern concrete pumps are highly engineered to ensure the safety of those operating them. They offer a reliable, smooth application of concrete in all manner of areas.
When it comes to small or difficult to access areas, pumping concrete makes sense. The old methods of mixing concrete on site involved transporting it via wheelbarrows and buckets. It was not only laborious and back breaking but also costly and dangerous.
Concrete pumps come in a range of different specifications and can reach areas which may be too high or too tight for people to get to in a safe manner. The days of builders walking across scaffolding whilst holding heavy buckets are thankfully over.
With hydraulic arms and remote controlled mechanisms, the concrete may be applied exactly where it is needed. No matter how high, how low or how small the space is we can reach it. And it may be applied with the minimum of mess or waste.
Concrete also spoils quickly. It can harden or thicken when it is being moved by hand. Concrete pumps ensure that this does not occur meaning that there is far less waste in terms of both money and in terms of time.
Small projects such as single rooms or swimming pools are perfect for the use of concrete pumps.
Concrete pumping is also the best solution for large scale projects such as tower blocks or large industrial buildings.
Large or small jobs can be dealt with equally effectively by employing concrete pumping applications.
