Experience with Gunite

With over 30 years of solid experience behind us, we have handled small-scale projects for individual customers, as well as large-scale ones for civil engineering companies. We provide customized solutions based on the specific needs of our customers. Gunite is popularly called sprayed concrete/dry shortcreet. 

Since it isn’t restricted to be applied on a framework, it helps save time and cost. This is used in combination with piling and soil anchors, as a lateral support in projects where deep excavations are done.Gunite contractors also use mesh and sprayed concrete in areas where there is a lot of soil erosion. We maintain very high quality standards in our work and ensure that our customers are 100{91324c1a17a482470e002e5bc10436ccce25a03a4900432d167b22d21772f50c} satisfied with the solutions we provide. 

Range of Applications

As mentioned earlier, gunite is an extremely versatile material and is used in a wide range of applications including: 

  • Gunite Swimming Pools– This becomes the perfect solution in larger pools as a uniform homogenous shell is required in these.
  • Lateral Supports- These are typically used in excavation in which the inner walls require additional support. Our contractors use this material to prevent the excavated area from collapsing right into the soil.
  • Embankment Stabilisation– We add a concrete layer above the soil in areas where soil erosion has to be prevented. This helps prevent the water run-off from washing away all the soil. In addition, we use it to bind loose rocks together; it prevents these rocks from falling down an embankment near highways and roads.
  • Sacrificial Linings– This is in the form of a pre-designed and pre-bagged mix that helps prevent any damage to concrete structures like tanks, silos and bins.
  • Restricted Access- There are times when accessibility is a big problem in projects where concrete application is required. In these cases, gunite becomes the ideal choice as it is sprayed concrete.
  • Pre-cast Walling/Fencing– If any precast walling needs to be strengthened, applying gunite helps reinforce ribbon walling or solid walling.
  • Underground Tanks- We have handled a large number of underground water reservoir installation projects and have built holding tanks using sprayed concrete
  • Irregular Surfaces- We use guinite to coat irregular wall surfaces etc in cases where it isn’t practical to erect formwork; this process saves a lot of money and time.
