Lytag® precast concrete reduces weight by around 25%
Lytag® provides the same level of structural integrity as natural aggregate concrete so it can be used in exactly the same way. Both for large structural units and lintels, beams, kerbs and flagstones, etc.
Advantages: Less concrete used; dead load of structure reduced; less foundations needed.
Benefits: With weight savings of up to 40% then potential haulage savings of 40% are also possible; Less trucks also means less CO2e.
Lytag® provides the same level of structural integrity as natural aggregate concrete so it can be used in exactly the same way.
Advantages: Meets all British & European standards at a fraction of the weight.
Benefits: Same performance as natural aggregate concrete; reduced costs; greater design flexibility.
More Lytag® concrete precast units than natural aggregate ones can be transported per vehicle. This reduces haulage costs and environmental impact.
Advantages: Quicker delivery; logistics costs per unit dramatically reduced.
Benefits: Overall haulage savings; less pollution.
Lytag®’s lighter weight makes larger precast units possible than with natural aggregate concrete.
Advantages: More design options; lower casting costs; fewer joints; quicker construction; fewer trips and lower haulage costs.
Benefits: Better designs with lower costs.
Lytag® precast units are quicker and safer to lay compared with natural aggregate concrete units. They reduce the potential for the strains and accidents that precast units such as flagstones can cause.
Advantages: More efficient installation complying with manual handling regulations.
Benefits: Reduced potential injuries; time and labour costs.
Lytag® produces lighter precast units than natural aggregate concrete.
Advantages: Smaller cranes can be used on site allowing greater flexibility and faster installation.
Benefits: Reduced overall crane charges; increased efficiency at site.
