We pride ourselves on being the only professional sprayed concrete company in Africa.

This is due to our time & financial commitment to training our staff on industry best practice. Any John Smith can buy a wrecked gunnite machine and call themselves a gunite applicator. However as with most things there is a right and wrong way to achieve a quality product.

This starts with training. Our founder is the only certified shotcrete craftsman and inspector in Africa. This certification involved travelling to the USA and spending a month on a variety of shotcrete sites working with recognised and certified industry experts. Additional time was then spent in lectures and at the end of this 7 separate examinations with an 80% pass rate where required. These included practical and theory. Theory includes cold and hot weather shotcreting, materials, admixtures, placement techniques, industry bad practice, equipment, safety and many other subjects. The practical involved the spraying of panels in the vertical and overhead position. The panels where then cored and the quality, density and encapsulation of rebar was judged by the American Shotcrete Association. As shotcrete is concrete all examinations and testing are overseen by the American Concrete Institute who then issue the certification.

This knowledge and training is then passed onto our own staff by specific training in overhead, vertical and bench shooting methods by our MD on sites and at dedicated training days at our yard.

Our equipment is then also a factor in why we are ahead of the rest. One of our wet-shotcrete kits can cost more than 10 x what a local gunite set-up costs. Why would we invest so much money in one when we could have ten. Quality is the answer. We have 7 Wet shotcrete rigs and 7 dry shotcrete set-ups. All manufactured by REED Shotcrete equipment on Chino, California.


We offer both wet & dry shotcrete (gunite), selecting the process that lends it self best to site conditions. We work closely in conjunction with our material supply partners and can offer you a custom mix design with strengths from everyday 25mpa through to ultra-high strength 80mpa concrete. Our standard mix design consistently achieves compressive test results of over 40mpa.

We only use best of breed REED equipment on our sites.

Their dry shotcrete (gunite) equipment provides a very even flow of material which aids hydration at the nozzle and results in a uniform quality concrete – perfect for smaller contracts and concrete repair.

REED wet-shotcrete pumps are designed for harsh, low slump materials which enable usto avoid the use of accelerating chemicals that can affect long term strengths in concrete. With pressure ratings from 81bar to 145bar we have a range of shotcrete pumps suitable for high volume shotcrete application, structural shotcrete and refractory spec mixes.

Shotcrete can be used in almost any concrete project and typically results in significant savings of time and money. Get in touch and let’s see how we can work together.
