When completing construction or renovation projects, having the right tools is essential. As a contractor, you require a wide range of tools to carry out your work effectively and efficiently. That is why, at Tiger Supplies, we offer a wide range of Concrete Testing Products that will ensure the quality and structural integrity of concrete.

The benefits of concrete testing products include:

  •  Ensuring quality control in the production of concrete.

 By testing the concrete mix for properties such as water-cement ratio, workability, and air content, construction companies can ensure that the concrete meets the required specifications.

  • Making sure that the concrete used in construction projects is safe for use.

Testing can reveal any defects in concrete, such as cracks or weak spots, which could compromise the safety of the concrete structure.

  • Identifying potential problems with the concrete early on.

Concrete testing products can help construction companies avoid costly repairs and delays later on. Testing can also help optimise the concrete mix, leading to more efficient use of materials and cost savings.

How to slump test concrete consistency and why it’s important

The concrete slump test is required to measure consistency of fresh concrete before it sets. This test is paramount to check the workability of freshly made concrete, and therefore the ease with which concrete flows.

Concrete Testing can be used as an indicator of an improperly mixed batch of concrete. Slump testing is particularly popular due to the simplicity of the test and apparatus. The slump test is used to ensure uniformity for different loads/batches of concrete under field conditions.

Concrete workability is distinguished by the slump measurement of the mixed concrete. Different applications require different concrete consistencies which are shown in the below table.

Class Slump range (mm) Target slump (mm)

S1 10 - 40 20

S2 50 - 90 70

S3 100 - 150 130

S4 160 - 210 180

S5 210 - n/a 220

S1 - Stiff, can give immediate support to kerbs or drainage works

S2 - Normal workability

S3 - Mid-range workability. Optimum for placing, compaction and finishing

S4 - Trench fill workability

S5 - Very workable, but where the slump test is not a suitable measure of workability

Our range of Concrete Testing equipment includes products that conform to European Standards, such as Mortar Tubs and Concrete Test Cube Moulds.

Our Mortar Tubs are used to mix and store mortar, concrete, or other materials during construction projects. They are typically made of heavy-duty plastic and are designed to be durable and easy to move around. 

Our Universal Mortar Tub is designed to be rigid under heavy loads and has a 250 litre-capacity. It has been manufactured with slots in the base for forklift tines to be inserted.

You can also take advantage of our Concrete Test Cube Moulds, which can determine the compressive strength of concrete. Our Concrete Test Cube Moulds are made from cast iron that is capable of withstanding heavy usage without distortion. It has a weight of 10kg and conforms to BS 1881:Part 108,  EN 12390-1 and ISO 1920.

We also recommend our Concrete Slump Cone for testing the consistency and self-compaction properties of concrete under gravity. This product is manufactured from plated steel and conforms to BS1881 as well.
