Using SmartRock to Modernize Australia’s Construction Industry
Attention all Australian contractors—you can now purchase Giatec's SmartRock concrete maturity sensors across all states and territories of Australia from our new distribution partner, BERRA Construction Products, and their network of trusted distributors.
We have chosen to partner with BERRA because of their decades of expertise in all areas of construction, their commitment to quality, and their passion for providing the latest concrete solutions.
About BERRA Construction Products
BERRA is an innovative solutions provider that delivers emerging technologies to the Australian construction industry. They work with world leaders in construction materials, equipment, and IoT solutions for the concrete, construction, infrastructure, engineering, and mining industries.
BERRA's goal is to make construction projects more efficient, in terms of both money and time, without compromising quality. Working with a network of trusted distribution leaders, BERRA provides access to their systems in all states and territories of Australia.
Approximately one year ago, BERRA started exploring various maturity systems in order to reduce liability of concrete strength failures, especially in cold-weather climates.
Out of all maturity systems on the market, they were most attracted to Giatec's smart sensors with wireless capabilities, which send concrete temperature and strength results directly to contractors' smartphones. This real-time monitoring of concrete properties gives contractors the ability to accurately optimize construction scheduling.
By far, it's the most accurate method of testing early-age strength of concrete. We love the way this technology can enable the industry to work smarter. It's a better way of doing what we've always done—for safety, cost, project timelines and overall project efficiencies.

Benefits of Wireless Maturity Monitoring
Monitoring concrete temperature and strength is critical to optimizing various processes including formwork removal, post tensioning, heat curing, and opening roads to traffic. Wireless maturity sensors like SmartRock make this easier than ever. Compared to traditional cylinder break testing, the maturity method (ASTM C1074) provides countless advantages, including:
By delivering real-time concrete strength data directly to the contractor's Android or iOS device, wireless maturity sensors can optimize post-tensioning, stripping formwork, and jumping form, thereby cutting weeks off project schedules.
By eliminating break tests, concrete maturity sensors increase efficiency and reduce costs associated with labor, equipment, and destructive testing.
Improved Accuracy of Results
Continuous logging of concrete temperature and strength ensures more reliable results and reduces liability for contractors.
Companies like BERRA are modernizing the construction industry by using SmartRock sensors to bring efficiency, accuracy, and safety to critical construction processes. It's time you do too.
