Essential Winter Protection – Antel Frost Blanket

Posted on by

Professional construction workers know how important it is to protect concrete from poor weather conditions such as rain and frost.

That’s why Frost blankets and Hessian are an essential requirement on sites this winter.

Frost Blanket

Antel Frost Blanket is used to prevent freshly poured concrete slabs from being damaged by freezing temperatures – which could see harm caused to the structure as the material solidifies – this item is 6 mm thick and designed to withstand extreme cold temperatures.

 

Hessian

Antel Hessian is also used extensively for protecting freshly laid brick and block work.

 

Effective protection allows the concrete to gain strength at a normal rate and prevents the concrete from early-age damage by freezing of the mixing water.

 

Make sure your site is protected this winter.
