Wacker Plates and Compaction in Hull

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

Quality concrete is concrete that has been carefully placed, properly compacted and thoroughly cured. Without good compaction and curing you can end up with weak concrete that is less durable. This is because freshly-placed concrete contains tiny bubbles of air, which must be expelled to achieve strong concrete. Vibration - or compaction - is the process that achieves this by releasing trapped air and packing the aggregate particles together – increasing the density and ultimate strength of the concrete, while at the same time boosting the bond with reinforcement.

We have compactor hire and vibration plates / vibrating plates hire to help you firstly compact the ground itself (the subgrade); then compact the subbase (onto which concrete is poured); and finally to compact the concrete itself by removing air bubbles. For expert guidance on the right equipment to hire, call us now on 01482 963 220.

Prepare a stable subgrade and subbase

It is very important to create a solid foundation for concrete by properly compacting the subgrade (i.e. the soil beneath your subbase) and the subbase itself (which is sometimes just the compacted soil, or alternatively another material such as fine grade stones).
Use vibration plates to do this before pouring the concrete into the form. Our vibrating plate hire and wacker plate hire gives you access to machines that are ideal for use in narrow or hard-to-access areas, or for compacting gravel and sand, alongside heavy duty professional options ideal for heavy contractor use.

Concrete compactor

Once poured, the concrete itself needs to be compacted to remove the majority of air bubbles to ensure a strong and long-lasting structure. Choose from our range of concrete compactor hire equipment to achieve a professional finish.

Hire concrete compactors online or call our friendly team of experts for guidance about the best equipment for your specific job. We cater for both domestic and trade customers, and can offer trade accounts if you wish. You can pick up your concrete compactor hire items from your Hull depot, from another location in Yorkshire, or from any of our other hire locations across the country. We can also offer delivery throughout the UK, with many vibration plates available the next day.

Our branch is located at Hedon Road, Hull, HU9 1RA
