Screed is a thin material that is placed on top of a concrete subfloor. It typically consists of cement and sharp sand, but coarser aggregates may be added to create a thicker layer. Screed is usually covered with a more decorative finish, but in some environments is left bare.
Whether you’re looking to get rid of and replace a worn screed layer or lay a new floor in its entirety, you need reliable machinery that will remove the screed with ease. Concept Flooring Technology stocks a selection of floor grinders and scabblers for the task.
A scabbler is a piece of machinery used for reducing stone or concrete to prepare a surface or provide a decorative texture to concrete. The Airtec RT2000 Scabbler is used for removing coatings, rubber and adhesive in small areas. It is a lightweight, general-purpose floor scabbler that is best suited for small jobs where only basic surface preparation and removal of screed are required.
If you have a medium-sized area that you need screed removed from, you may prefer the Airtec RT250 Scabbler. It is an aggressive machine well-suited for larger areas. The tungsten tip flail drum can be built differently if you require the machine for particular jobs.
Preparation grinders are used to prepare a surface, typically for refurbishment and repair. If you need horizontal surface preparation for small to medium areas, the Blastrac BGS250 Grinder is a good option. It is a lightweight, easy-to-use device that will get the job done quickly and efficiently.
For medium-large areas with aggressive, rapid screed removal, choose the SPE DFG250 Grinder. This grinder has rear wheels mounted on a pivoting axle, allowing it to be used with ease as the weight and balance can be altered. Each of our grinders takes a variety of different diamond grinding blades depending on the surface you need grinding.
