Below is a selection of the range of concrete mixes we supply and suggestions for their optimal use.

Lean Mix - Trench Fill. Volume where no strength is needed.

C7.5 (Formally Called ST1) - A mix used for stabilising underground pipe work or for use as a dry backing when installing roadside kerbing, when erecting posts or for general use where no real strength is required.

C10 (Formally Called Gen1) - Both of these mixes are used as a foundation or footing mix for non-load bearing walls, garden walls up to 900mm high and footing mixes for house construction.

C15 (Formally Called 1.3.6 and ST3) - Footing Mix, for some houses/ bungalows and caravan bases.

C20 (Formally Called ST4, Gen3 and 1.2.4) - This strength is used as a footing mix in house construction where ground is found to be soft or unstable, used mainly as the slab foundation to the floor of houses and bungalows. Bases for caravans and pathways need this strength of concrete, the latter using a 10mm aggregate for a smoother finish.
