Typical applications

Further details

C2 – C6 / Foamed Concrete

  • Filling unwanted voids & disused structures
  • Structural stabilization
  • Trench fill
  • Insulating fill
Foam concrete is a versatile building material that is relatively inexpensive. Levelling and compaction is not required which significantly reduces labour requirement. Due to the nature of foam concrete it remains in a workable state for up to 3hrs and can often be surfaced within 24hrs, which make it a popular choice for utilities contractors for trench reinstatement.

C10 / Gen 1

  • Mass concrete fill
  • Drainage works
  • Pad foundations
  • Blinding
Extremely versatile mix used throughout the construction industry for general housing applications. It can be used for pad foundations and non-structural mass concrete in non-aggressive ground conditions.

C15 / Gen 2

  • Kerbing
  • House floors with no reinforcement
  • Foundations for small walls and conservatories, shed & greenhouse
C15 concrete is suitable for house floors with no embedded metals (steel reinforcement). It also provides the ideal material for flooring when no permanent finish or floor covering will be installed, such as carpet or floor tiles.

C20 / Gen 3

  • Foundations for large walls, garages & single storey extensions
  • Shed bases
  • Greenhouse bases
  • Internal floor slabs
C20 concrete is commonly used for light weight domestic applications and foundations, such as driveways and garages.

C25

  • Double storey extensions
  • Floors
  • Footings
C25 is a standardised mix concrete that is widely versatile and used in numerous commercial and domestic projects.

C30 / PAV1

  • External slabs
  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Garages
  • Pavements
Often used with reinforced steel, the minimum cement content in C30 concrete helps to lessen the risk of the steel being attacked by chlorides, thus minimising any chance of corrosion.

PAV 1 mixes have an air entrainment additive to create standard sized air bubbles in concrete. This helps to protect the surface from freeze thaw cycles, making it especially useful for outdoor paving.

RC35 / PAV2

  • Heavy duty use
  • External slabs
  • External paving
  • Agricultural light storage areas
C35 concrete is a heavy duty use concrete for use with embedded reinforcement. It offers high quality similar to C30, but is much more substantial making it suitable for commercial and industrial use. Common applications include raft foundations, piling and external slabbing and paving that will be subject to the constant loading and scraping imposed by industrial vehicles and machinery.

PAV2 mixes have an air entrainment additive to create standard sized air bubbles in concrete. This helps to protect the surface from freeze-thaw cycles, making it especially useful for outdoor paving.

RC40 / RC45 / RC50

  • Structural beams
  • Agriculture yards
  • External paving for commercial vehicles
A strong commercial grade concrete mix, most commonly used in the construction of reinforced structural support beams, footings and foundations, road works and in agricultural use.

Floor Screeds

  • Domestic flooring
  • Commercial flooring
Screed is a thinner layer of concrete material, which is a higher quality for a smoother finish with smaller aggregates. It is laid directly onto a base to obtain a more defined level, support the final floor covering or to provide a wearing surface.

Other mix designs can be supplied on request.

    Being the first time I’ve ever needed concrete on this scale I was a tad unsure. But the lady I spoke to when making the booking was really helpful and gave good advice, she immediately emailed me my quote and really didn’t push the sale. I phone a couple of other places, price seemed about the same so as she was so friendly I called back. I got a text and email the day before confirming the delivery slot. Then on the delivery morning I got a text with a more accurate time. The driver Gavin was a lovely bloke, really helpful and put no pressure on us to barrow the concrete quicker. He even sprayed the pavement and cleaned up after us. I used slightly less than I ordered and the invoice was reduced correspondingly. I’ve got a larger order to fill in a few months, I’ll deffo be using them again. Thanks

    A great, friendly and helpful company to use. They are competitive on price and really willing to work along with customers needs and help to make jobs run smoothly. Most definitely the only concrete firm that i will use from now on. As a bonus the drivers are so professional but easy going too and will always make sure that they listen to your concerns and offer great advice and make it as easy on you as possible. Many thanks McHugh Concrete.
