SUB BASE LEVELLING

SUB BASE LEVELLING

Level Best Concrete Flooring’s Bobcat laser grader can now prepare and level the sub base prior to the casting of an internal concrete floor slab or external concrete hardstanding. The sub base is the finely graded aggregate material located between the subgrade and the concrete floor slab.

The sub base is often the main load-bearing layer, playing a critical part in the construction process, providing a stable working platform for the concrete slab to be cast on. A level sub base enhances the long-term performance of the concrete slab, allowing the concrete to shrink more evenly without restraint, reducing the chance of shrinkage cracking occurring during curing and the lifetime of the slab. Levelling the sub base properly – using a Bobcat laser grader – is just as important as the setting up, casting and finishing of the concrete floor slab.

The traditional sub base grading method (using a mini excavator alongside a two-person team operating laser equipment) could take up to three times longer. The Bobcat laser grader can grade up to 2,000m² of sub base per day, which would have taken the traditional method three days. The bobcat laser grader offers a massive reduction in manpower, as it only requires one-person to setup the laser grader and operate the bobcat. Instead of the traditional method which would require a three-person team to achieve the same result. Due to the compact and manoeuvrable nature of the Bobcat, it can grade right into the corners of buildings, which would have had to be finished off by hand in the traditional method.

The Bobcat sub base leveller can achieve tolerances of +/- 5mm when used in conjunction with the laser grader and operated by our experienced operatives. The precision and accuracy in ensuring the slab is graded to the minimum tolerance will result in large cost savings when the concrete is cast, as the amount of concrete will be significantly reduced due to the precise level.

If you would like to know further details on the sub base levelling or are involved in a project where you would like to achieve a tolerance of +/- 5mm through our sub base levelling Bobcat laser grader, then please feel free to call us on 01405 819199 or email us at enquiries@levelbestconcreteflooring.co.uk

LASER CONTROLLED STONE TRIMMING BY LEVEL BEST CONCRETE FLOORING IN LARGE WAREHOUSES

Level Best Concrete Flooring has completed the Laser controlled sub base levelling of both internal and external concrete floor slabs on this 14,000m2 project in Tamworth, Staffordshire. The imported type 1 material was laid of depths up to 80mm in one pass by the laser controlled Bobcat machine.

WAREHOUSE CONCRETE FLOOR SLABS IN RIPON, NORTH YORKSHIRE

The laser controlled sub base levelling took a total of two days to complete and a perimeter thickening was required to allow for the insulation detail. Column surrounds were installed to minimise shrinkage cracking, steel permanent joints were installed as “day joints” with a galvanised joint at the internal/external access door location.

JOINTLESS STEEL FIBRE REINFORCED FLOOR SLAB IN WATH UPON DEARNE, SOUTH YORKSHIRE

Level Best Concrete Flooring, the Goole-based industrial concrete flooring contractor, has designed and installed a steel fibre reinforced concrete floor on an industrial estate near Barnsley in South Yorkshire. The concrete floor slab was designed 225mm in depth and reinforced with 30kg per cubic metre of Dramix steel fibres. A dry-shake topping was applied to the surface of the concrete using the new topping spreader at a dosage of 4kg/m2 to suppress the steel fibres at the surface and to increase the abrasion resistance of the floor.

what our customers say

“Level Best’s polishing system (FRS) has come up very well, especially when you consider the state the floor was in when the previous tenant vacated the unit.”

“The client was very impressed. They had never seen concrete floor slab polishing carried out at an industrial unit before and didn’t know to expect. They will certainly be specifying polishing on their next industrial project and want Level Best Concrete Flooring to carry out their revolutionary Floor Renovation System.”

“Level Best Concrete Flooring carried out the renovation to the existing warehouse concrete floor slab for us on an industrial estate in Stafford. The quality standards were exceeded and their eye for detail was outstanding as well as the project being completed within time and within budget. I wouldn’t hesitate in either recommending Level Best or using them again.”
