Hanson’s easy-to-use digital concrete maturity solution helps save time, money and carbon
HANSON are offering their customers a wireless concrete maturity system that helps save time and money, as well as allowing carbon emissions to be reduced.
SmartRock is a digital system that uses wireless sensors embedded within the concrete to monitor temperature and strength gain every 15 minutes for up to 60 days.
The information is available in real time via a smartphone app, giving customers the confidence to remove formwork earlier, speeding up construction on site.
Moreover, combining the system with Hanson’s EcoCrete low-carbon concrete can cut the carbon emissions associated with a construction project by up to 85% through the use of higher cement replacement levels.
Hanson Concrete technical director Daniel Clayton said: ‘SmartRock has been used in over 10,000 construction projects worldwide and is really gathering pace in the UK.
‘Its use removes the uncertainty of site concrete test cubes and the time spent waiting for results, delivering the data in real time direct to a mobile device.
‘SmartRock is quick and easy to set up and we provide full technical advice and support, including concrete mix design, calibrating the sensors and delivering them to site.’
