SHOTCRETE INSTALLATION AND REPAIR SERVICES

What Is Shotcrete?
Shotcrete (also known as gunite) is a concrete mixture that we spray onto tunnels, slopes, overlays, and concrete to cover any cracks that might be present. Applying shotcrete to a structure keeps loose material from falling and holds a structure together, which can promote safety and strengthen a surface.

WHY REPAIR YOUR STRUCTURE WITH SHOTCRETE?
Benefits of Using Shotcrete
- Shotcrete is a cost-effective way to fill holes and safeguard your rail system, highway slopes, etc.
- The setup is fast and straightforward (when you choose the right shotcrete company).
- It’s long-lasting and strong enough to stand up against fire, mildew, mold, and insects.
Shotcrete Installation Process
LRL Construction’s shotcrete is applied via our company’s independently designed delivery system through high-pressure hoses. Our system is versatile and effective.
Our shotcrete is reinforced concrete conveyed through a hose and pneumatically projected at high velocity onto a surface. It undergoes placement and compaction at the same time due to the force with which it is projected from the nozzle. Shotcrete works with any type or shape of surface, including vertical or overhead areas. For hard-access projects, we utilize dry process shotcrete.
One thing to know is that the installation process varies based on the application. For tunnels, we typically prepare the surface by scaling loose material, washing it down, and creating bulk bags, which can be stored on flat cars.
Next, we load a batch plant with the bulk bags, which are premixed with the required concrete, accelerators, and steel and palmer fibers. We can mix and pump on one unit, spray, and wait for the product to cure. This allows for a quicker, more efficient shotcrete installation.

WHAT WE DO
Types of Shotcrete Repairs
We offer many types of shotcrete repairs, including:
We scale to apply shotcrete and to support weathering and lamination with natural rock tunnels.
If the rock quality is not strong enough to support shotcrete and bolts, we can reline with something stronger.
We can remove rotted timber and replace the line with your preferred product. We also have the capability to do structural liners.
CONCRETE REPAIR AND REHABILITATION SERVICES WITH SHOTCRETE
Why Choose LRL Construction?
Another thing that sets us apart from other shotcrete installation and repair companies is our self-contained installation process. In other words, if we’re applying concrete on a railroad tunnel, our installation process is contained to flat cars (or rail cars). We set up our tools and materials on these rail cars and configure the unit to stay mobile on the rail, saving time and accelerating the speed of your installation.
Also, since we can place shotcrete with our rail setup faster, we can get the job done within a work window. That means that if the rail line is busy and can’t get an extended work window, we might be able to finish the job within two hours in between trains with our advanced, mobilized equipment.
