Commercial Barrow mix concrete

Barrow mix concrete is also viable for both small and large-scale commercial customers. It is made of predetermined amounts of materials, ensuring consistent quality and strength, and can be used for foundations, walls, slabs, and paving.

Barrow mix concrete can be less expensive than traditional concrete mixing methods, particularly for smaller commercial projects requiring a smaller volume of concrete to sites with limited access. The ready-to-use nature of Barrow mix concrete reduces the need for manual labour, making it an efficient choice for commercial projects.

However, we offer free labour and equipment to transport concrete from the mixer to the job site using wheelbarrows and prepared access. This frees up your employees’ time to do other things while we prepare and move the concrete for you.

Domestic barrow mix concrete


Barrow mix is a practical choice for domestic projects like garden paths, patio foundations, and other landscaping. It is also versatile, with applications ranging from small landscaping projects to larger construction projects.

Barrow mix eliminates the need for a traditional concrete mixer, making it a more time-efficient option for home improvement projects.

Barrow mix is pre-mixed in small batches, making it simple to handle and transport to the job site. Because it is pre-mixed in smaller quantities, it is less expensive for domestic projects than buying ready-mix concrete in large quantities.




Can Barrow Mix Concrete be used for reinforced concrete?

Yes, Barrow Mix Concrete can be used for reinforced concrete, but it requires precise mixing and placing techniques to ensure proper bonding between the concrete and the reinforcement.

What are the recommended curing methods and duration for ensuring optimal strength and durability of concrete?

Using curing compounds, wet burlap, or plastic sheeting to keep the concrete moist and protected from rapid temperature changes is one of the recommended methods for concrete curing. Maintaining a relative humidity of at least 50% and avoiding direct sun or wind exposure. Allow at least 7 days for the concrete surface to harden enough to prevent surface damage from placement activities.
