Trench Foundation Concrete
Trench fill foundations are a type of shallow foundation that avoids bricklaying below ground by almost completely filling the trench with concrete. The concrete is poured to within 150mm of the surface ground level.
The sides of the trench are as important in supporting the load as the bottom so this concrete must only be used in stable ground where the trench sides are firm and capable of bearing the load
- A trench-fill concrete which gives excellent quality and hardwearing results
- Easily pumped or placed direct from the truck
- Reduced labour and equipment cost in comparison to brick laying and when poured direct from the truck
- Significant time saving and increased placement speed
For increased strength and improved crack resistance we can offer Reinforced Concrete. Refer to the technical download sheet or contact our team for more information.
Our RMX Trench concrete can incorporate a proportion of GGBS, a cement replacement material that generates a much lower level of embodied CO2 emissions than ordinary RMX Trench cement, minimising environmental impact.
