About Our Concrete
Precast concrete is the most commonly used building material in the world and by manufacturing in a carefully controlled factory environment our precast concrete is not affected by variable site conditions or the elements. With this in mind, it is a safe, reliable, long lasting and cost effective product and the construction industry benefits from all these features for all types of building projects. Our products are designed and supplied to exact build fit and specification, which allows the build process to move forward efficiently and without delay. The individual components allow immediate site and finishing access following installation providing a solid footing - meaning no delays for follow-on trades.

Milbank concrete is always perfectly mixed and offers superior strength and durability to traditional wet concrete. It is quicker than in-situ mould construction and pouring and can be made into any shape.  It is fireproof and is tough and durable with excellent exposure properties.  It is wholly resistant to insect, pests, vermin attacks, fungus and mildew. It is completely recyclable and all precast units can be re-used in their entirety at the end of their life. If you need to know more, just drop us an email, we are always happy to help.

Products

Hollowcore Floors
Milbank Hollowcore floors are prestressed concrete units with tubular voids extending the full length of the slab creating an efficient lightweight unit.  This makes the slab much lighter than other floor slabs of equal thickness or strength.  Reduced weight lowers transportation costs and saves on the cost of the material.  They are typically used in the construction of upper floors in apartments/flats, commercial buildings and larger houses.  Milbank hollowcore floors are available in 150mm, 200mm and 250mm deep units.

Beam & Block Flooring
There are many benefits to using a beam & block flooring system, the biggest of which being it is fast, cheap and simple to install with no special skills required. Our concrete beams come in 155mm and 225mm deep prestressed options and are available in lengths of 1-6m in 50mm increments. By varying the concrete beam centres during construction this kind of concrete flooring offers a quick and economical solution for a wide range of problems both at ground and upper floor levels. Milbank carry a permanent stock of over 25,000m of concrete beams in varying lengths but can quickly manufacture concrete beams to order.

Warmfloor Pro - Insulated Flooring
WarmFloor Pro from Milbank Concrete Products represents a compelling alternative to the present market-leader. A cost-effective way to rapidly lay a thermally-insulated concrete ground floor, with lower construction costs at the outset and improved energy savings. As a high-quality alternative to a standard beam-and-block floor, WarmFloor Pro ticks all the boxes. WarmFloor Pro insulated concrete flooring (ICF) works by combining rigid insulation modules (EPS blocks) manufactured from lightweight closed-cell expanded polystyrene which is then laid in between our pre-stressed concrete beams (either 155mm or 225mm deep) and finished with an EPS top sheet, membrane and concrete screed.

Bespoke Precast Concrete Products
Milbank manufactures a wide variety of bespoke precast concrete components, up to 15 tonnes, in our modern purpose built factories. We work together with clients from industries including Commercial and Residential Construction, Rail, Health, Energy, Environmental and Public Sector to name but a few. Whatever industry you work in, we’re confident that we can provide the bespoke precast concrete products you need today.

MILBANK GOES GREEN WITH NEW BIOMASS BOILER

Milbank Concrete Products is pleased to announce it has recently completed installation and commissioning of a 1 Mw biomass boiler system at their site in Earls Colne, Essex.

In February the company installed a new hot water heating system for the moulds in the Main Pre-stressed factory. Previously the moulds were heated via electric transformers which heated the stressed strand and wire that runs through the product. The new system involves heating water to around 80 degrees centigrade via a Biomass wood pellet burner, the water is then routed to each mould via electronically controlled valves and pumps. Each mould has three circuits of the underfloor heating pipe inside them, which is encasd in concrete and insulation to retain the heat for longer. The 6 new moulds have been designed in a way that all the floor products can be cast in any permutation to ensure that it keeps in pace with the demands of the customers. The existing remaining 7 Hollowcore beds will be linked up to the same system later in the year after they the surface of the moulds have been re-furbished.

Apart from significant cost savings compared to electricity and a vastly improved heating output, there will be significant environmental emission savings. Carbon emissions related to electricity usage for heating the moulds can be around 2,000kgs per year. Virgin wood pellet from sustainable sources for burner fuel is claimed to be carbon neutral, the carbon absorbed from the environment during the growth of a tree is equal to the carbon released during the burning of the tree.
"Although the electric method to cure our products was good in it’s day, over the years we had many issues with insufficient heat and yet still had expensive electric costs. With the new biomass boiler it will not only significantly reduce our heating costs, but it will be far more productive in getting the right amount of heat to the right part of the product along with the added bonus of being kinder to our enviroment” said Andy Mayne, Managing Director.

Milbank Concrete Products believes that this investment is a positive contribution to the community and is an extension of their common goal of improving the environment.
