Wacker Plates and Compaction Hire Bristol

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

When you are working with concrete you will often need vibration plates or a concrete compactor in order to prepare a solid foundation. We offer compactor hire and vibrating plates hire for trade and domestic customers, enabling you to create a stable subbase for your concrete.

We also supply related tools for working with cement and concrete, such as cement mixer hire and concrete mixer hire, so just get in touch on 0117 261 1220 to hire all the necessary equipment to complete a professional job.

The Role of Concrete Compactors

When you pour concrete, bear in mind that the final result will only be as strong as your subgrade. The subgrade is the soil that lies underneath your subbase. So it is critical that you make sure your subgrade it properly compacted and entirely stable before you add your subbase (onto which the final concrete will be poured).

Once you have used the vibration plates to compact the soil / subgrade, you can either use this as yours subbase, or add another material as the subbase – often fine stones are used, particularly if the final concrete is going to be bearing a lot of weight.

Remember that finer-grade stone will compact much better than cheaper, open-grade stone. Most jobs require a 4-8 inch thick subbase, preferably compacted with a plate compactor to achieve the best results.

Plate Compactor Hire

Our vibrating plate or wacker plate hire offers machines that are ideal for use in narrow or hard-to-access areas, compacting gravel, sand, or even bedding in paving stones. Alongside lightweight options we have heavy duty professional vibration plates that are ideal for heavy contractor use; medium compaction plates for most hardcore, sand or gravel compaction; and other heavy duty models for complex, professional jobs.
