Grange can also provide a concrete testing service from its laboratory at Kirkburn.
We offer testing of cubes delivered to the Kirkburn site at a cost of £50 per set. If you are purchasing concrete from us specifically we can arrange testing of that concrete subject to available technical resources on the day of supply for similar price, if you would like to take advantage of this service please contact us in good time so that any necessary arrangements can be made in advance.
The concrete testing service provides confirmation of Density in Kg/m3 and Compressive Strength in N/mm2 . Where testing of Grange supplied concrete is carried out we also provide information on slump, concrete temperature etc.
The laboratory is fully equipped to test raw materials and concrete. Here you can see a few pictures of the laboratory and its equipment including automatic cube crusher for testing concrete compressive strength, laboratory sieves and balances for testing aggregates etc.
