Value Added Solutions

Ronez has available a wide portfolio of value added solutions for an array different applications, all tailored to meet specific requirements.

Discovery

Introducing Ronez Discovery, an eye-catching coloured ready-mixed concrete to provide your construction project with a bold look that combines aesthetic appeal with the long lasting durability of traditional paving or structural concrete.

Ronez Discovery greatly enhances the architectural and visual appeal of concrete, affording a much greater range of design opportunities. The distinctice colour range is achieved by combining cement, coarse aggregate, sand and a coloured pigment, whilst the batching plant uses specific dedicated mix designs and materials to ensure a consistent colour is attained.

Ronez Discovery can be used with water resistant and fibre reinforced mixes.

A robust and hardwearing solution that offers a permanent colour, Ronez Discovery can be supplied to comply with any specification or grade and combines all the inherent flexibility of insitu concrete with a highly attractive and decorative finish.

Ronez Discovery offers a cost effective solution to painted floors and an alternative to decorative surface coatings reducing construction costs and time.

Flow

Ronez Flow is a range of highly specialised self compacting concrete formulations, each presenting significant advantages over the equivalent traditional concrete.

Designed to provide a high fluid consistency and minimal energy consumption in use. Ronez Flow is based on carefully selected and controlled binders and admixtures in conjunction with aggregates selected in accordance with the proposed end use.

Ronez Flow offers contractors and specifiers a high performance, secure fast track solution to many of the more challenging aspects of construction. Ronez Flow is available in four categories...

  • Ronez Flow A - An architectural grade for very high quality finishes.
  • Ronez Flow H - Intended for internal flooring and screeding applications and other horizontal slabs.
  • Ronez Flow V - A general purpose grade intended for use in framed and general construction.
  • Ronez Flow F - For use in all foundation applications where access is restricted.

Ronez Flow, when correctly specified and placed, will deliver...

  • High quality finishes. Ronez Flow is capable of delivering the finest surface finish and detail in areas of difficult access, complex formwork or very heavily reinforced sections. The mix design concept applied to products in this range ensures each product is robust under all normal site conditions.
  • Reduced or eliminated remedial work.
  • Reduced labour requirements. Labour friendly concrete, the simplicity of placing together with the elimination of compaction and in many instances only very minor finishing effort will ensure a project achieves savings in terms of time and cost.
  • Ronez Flow is easier to place and finish than conventional concrete and is available in standard strengths up to 40 N/mm2. Higher grades are possible and our products can be supplied in a range of colours.
  • Improved output in precast environments.
  • Reduced impact on the environment. Noise impact of the construction operation is greatly reduced, concrete pumps run more quietly and the need for all forms of vibration is eliminated. The use of power floating is also eliminated.
  • Reduces placing and finishing time. The enhanced rate of placing that can be achieved using Ronez Flow allows the scheduling of larger pours or a reduction in working hours required. The elimination of late working or overtime costs can significantly benefit the environment through these actions.
  • The potential to eliminate late working and finishing is a significant reduction in the environmental impact of construction.
  • Ronez Flow preparation allows the contractor to 'place and finish' concrete without the normal delay between placing and finishing operations. Volumes of 350m3 to 450m2 are readily achievable within a normal 10 hour shift.
  • When used as a screed, Ronez Flow can offer superior performance over traditional sand cement and flowing screed mixes.
  • Elimination of 'vibration white finger' risk.
  • Ronez Flow can be tailored to the particular challenges of your contract.
  • Ronez Flow H is compatible with flowing screed when used in association with underfloor heating systems.

Ronez Flow may be utilised in all forms of construction in residential, transport, office and administrative buildings as well as the repair and refurbishment of hotels, schools and hospitals.

ICF Crete

Ronez have developed sustainable ready-mixed concrete mixes for Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) applications.

Widely used in the USA, Canada and Continental Europe, ICF is relatively new in the UK. The building technique involves a series of hollow expanded polystyrene blocks into which ICF Crete is poured. The system combines the inherent strength of concrete with the excellent thermal insulation properties of polystyrene to produce cost-effective and durable structures. In addition, ICF systems provide some of the inherent benefits of concrete construction, namely, sound insulation, air tightness, fire resistance, long-term performance and robustness.

  • ICF formwork with ICF Crete provides a sustainable walling element with green guide ratings of A+ and A dependent on walling thickness and internal and external finishes
  • Recycled or secondary aggregates can be introduced to the ICF Crete mixes specific to client requirements and availability
  • Enables quick build and watertight shells
  • ICF systems are highly air tight which improves comfort and less heat loss compared with leaky walls thermally bridged
  • Wall U-values down to 0.10W/m2 °K and bellow are achievable
  • Acoustic performance easily exceeds the requirements of building regulations offering peace and quiet in multi dwelling construction
  • Structural integrity for better resistance to forces of nature compared with framed walls
  • Reduces HVAC operating costs by 30% - 70%
  • No vertical heat loss through ICF party walls
  • Construction methods are easy to learn with manufacturers offering installation training courses / or site supervision
  • ICF structures offer more comfortable, quiet, and energy-efficient environment than those built with traditional construction methods
  • Designing and building with ICF's can help your construction project attain Ecohomes excellent, and high levels in the Code for Sustainable homes and other BREEAM schemes

ICF creates a monolithic concrete wall that is many times stronger than that of a timber frame construction.
