Concrete Product Guide

SMC can supply a wide range of concretes to projects of all types and sizes through our fleet of small vehicles. We have access to many innovative mixes such as self-placing, fibre-reinforced, pattern-imprinted, coloured, foamed, and high strength mixes.

Each mix is specifically designed to do the job you want it to do, whether it be a simple footing, or a highly trafficked area with minimum shutdown. So if you are unsure of what you need, please contact us, and we will advise you on what concrete you need to complete you project. All products are quality assured through membership of the Quality Scheme for Readymixed Concrete.

We have listed a few general mixes which cover many applications, but if your project is not listed here, or if you are unsure of your needs please contact your local Readymixdirect supplier.
