Wacker Plates and Compaction in Glasgow

For wacker plate and compactor hire in Glasgow visit Best at hire, your National tool hire centre.

Good quality concrete needs to be placed carefully on a solid subbase, thoroughly compacted, and well-cured – otherwise it could end up weak.

We offer compactor hire and vibration plates/vibrating plate hire for trade and domestic customers who need to compact the ground itself (i.e. the subgrade); compact the subbase onto which concrete is poured, often made up of a layer of fine stones; and then finally compact the concrete itself to remove air bubbles.

For expert advice and some guidance about the best equipment to hire, call us on 0141 310 3220.

Prepare a stable subgrade and subbase

The first consideration when working with concrete is to prepare a solid foundation by (1) properly compacting the subgrade (the soil underneath the subbase) and (2) compacting the subbase itself. Sometimes your compacted subgrade can double as a subbase, but if the concrete will endure heavy use or bear heavy weights then another material such as fine grade stones should be used on top of the subgrade.

Vibration plates are usually used to compact these foundations before pouring on the concrete. Vibrating plate hire and wacker plate hire means you can gain access to professional equipment without investing in your own expensive machines. We have compactors suitable for gravel and sand, hard-to-access areas, light domestic tasks, and heavy duty jobs.

Once the concrete has been poured it also needs to be compacted to remove the bulk of the air bubbles that naturally form. This makes sure the concrete is strong and durable.

Great choice, competitive rates & nationwide depots

Hire a vibration plate online or call us for guidance about the best items for your concrete job. We can offer trade accounts if you wish, and we also offer delivery across the UK. Alternatively, simply pick up your concrete compactor hire equipment from our Glasgow depot, from an alternative location in Scotland, or from any other Best at hire locations right across the UK.
