Technical Focus: Non-shrink grout

2018-06-19 14:33:03 emmad

This comes in a bagged powder form and water is mixed on site to generate the liquid.

The purpose of the material is to completely surround the baseplate and bolts of the steel frame once the structure has been erected and levelled. The material hardens to form a solid ‘packing’ in and around the base-fixing.

The sand box shuttering for the frame bolts are created by hand before the grouting is poured into the mound and allowed to set.
