As well as its superior drainage capabilities, no-fines concrete offers a wide range of benefits for construction work. Here are some advantages of porous concrete for our customers.
Affordable: As the concrete mix contains a low volume of aggregates, it is very affordable – an added bonus for builders who need a permeable solution.
Long lasting: Due to the low drying shrinkage rates of porous concrete, it has a long lifespan – during which it should stay perfectly in shape and free from cracks.
Low density: In a typical concrete mix, aggregates make up the bulk of the weight. In no-fines concrete, the removal of fine aggregates means that the density is reduced significantly. This results in lighter loads and reduced requirements for foundations.
Thermal insulation: The permeability of no-fines concrete also enhances its insulation capabilities. For this reason, it is a popular option for use in external walls of homes and commercial spaces, as it helps to ensure that the property is energy-efficient.
