Scarifiers are walk-behind devices that are used on concrete surfaces. They come in a variety of sizes but use the same basic principle to operate. Here at Concept Flooring Technology, we offer the hire of high-quality flooring machines to clients around mainland UK.
Read on to find out more about why you should hire a floor scarifier.
This involves tungsten-tipped cutters that pound down into the concrete surface, breaking the top layer down. They are most suitable for reducing the height of a concrete slab, adhesive or to provide a textured finish to a floor. They do not grind concrete.
The tungsten tip flail drum can also be replaced for certain jobs such as for one that would be more suitable for car park line removal. They’re a useful tool to use due to them being lightweight and effective at quick removal.
Like most other types of plant hire, flooring machinery hire usually comes down to one main factor. Cost. Typically, it is a lot more cost-effective to hire a piece of flooring machinery for the period of time you need to use it, rather than buying the machinery outright. This is because machinery is often very expensive, while the cost of renting can be considerably cheaper.
The one instance where it isn’t cost-effective is if you’re constantly using the machinery, and the rental money might eventually eclipse the original buying price. However, if you are only renting the flooring machinery for a single purpose, or not very regularly, hiring is much cheaper.
Hiring equipment also means you will be getting high-quality machinery every time. You don’t have to worry about maintaining your own equipment, or your model becoming obsolete as better machines are developed.
If you’re looking to hire a floor scarifier, work with Concept Flooring Technology. We are a reliable and trusted company, working to bring the best grinder and polisher hire to clients across mainland UK. We have a selection of scarifiers, including the Airtec RT2000 and the Airtec RT250.
The Airtec RT250 is perfect if you’re looking for a medium-duty scarifier, ideal for when you need to roughen and scarify surfaces, as well as when removing coatings and preparation work. The RT2000 on the other hand is more of a general-purpose floor machine. It has a lightweight body and is most suited to the removal of rubber, adhesive and other coatings.
As with most flooring machines, you’ll also need adequate dust control to ensure your safety and to keep the environment clean. You can see our range of dust extractors here.
