There are many causes of concrete cancer such as lack of coverage around the reinforcing steel. Magnesite topping exposed to moisture. Poorly designed waterproofing details. As the embedded steel corrodes it expands in volume and causes spalling of the surrounding concrete, often referred to as concrete cancer. Effective concrete repairs will extend the life span of the damaged structure.

The jaws on the Postmaster are hydraulically operated and can accept different size posts. If you have more than one machine that you want to use the Postmaster with, it is simple to interchange the Postmaster between machines by the use of a different mounting bracket/hitch for greater flexibility than others on the market.

Expansion joints may need to be created from defects such as thermal expansion and contraction, brick growth, foundation movement. There are various methods for the creation of expansion/movement/control joints. All involve cutting through the face of the masonry with the use of cutting saws, grinders or even chain saws with diamond teeth. We carry all the specialist cutting equipment.
We commonly use a 60mm diameter shaft screw pile but they also come in 76mm and 89mm for the purposes of restricted access situations.
There can be different size and configuration of helices on the lead sections and with our calibrated dial gauge, working with different ground conditions and a required load capacity is made easy. With our portable handheld screw pile equipment we are able to gain access through as little space as a door way if required.
