CONCRETE FOR EXTERNAL YARD
Choosing the right stuff
Most concrete floors for external yards are installed in long strip bays of around 5 – 6 metres in width. We install stutters to separate each bay with bays being poured in ‘hit and miss’ sections. Steel reinforcement and joint details can be installed prior to pouring or prepared and dropped into the wet concrete during pouring.
Types of Lay
Depending on the layout and budget of a project, concrete may be poured by pump or from the back of the mixer truck. Once poured it is then hand laid using the shutters as level guidance. A laser receiver and even screed rails can be used for tight falls or fall changes. Most yards are laid to SR3, (More information on Floor Tolerance Classes).
External yard concrete flooring is normally brush finished with trowelled margins. The best finish comes when the concrete is powerfloated before brushing operations but this can add costs, and so is budget dependent. A good brush finish will give a lasting textured finish, giving slip resistance and durability. In the ‘olden’ days, yards would be ‘tamped’ finished but this is inconsistent and quality control is almost impossible. A ‘Tamped’ finish offers no more benefit than brushed finish and the method is now frowned upon.
