Innovative concrete services

Concrete Batching Services
Lafarge boasts one of the most sophisticated batching systems available to the industry. All materials are weighed off. All our batching records are kept for 5 years. To ensure that all material is weighed off correctly all our scales are externally calibrated every 6 months by a SANAS accredited testing facility.
All the concrete mix designs are designed in our regional offices. The plant staff do not have the access to change the mix design recipes. Prior to dispatch all concrete loads are visually inspected to ensure that the correct slumps are met.
