Giatec’s SmartRock Plus Solution Enters the International Market

Giatec, world leader in concrete testing technologies, has announced that their SmartRock® Plus solution for ready-mix concrete producers is now available internationally.

As a value-added solution offered by high-quality ready-mix producers, SmartRock Plus enables contractors to see concrete temperature and strength data in real-time using Giatec’s SmartRock wireless sensors, allowing producers to “know their concrete” beyond the pour.

As the first truly wireless sensor introduced to the market in 2015, SmartRock is the leading concrete maturity sensor for accurate monitoring of concrete curing and hardening. Unlike time-consuming and error-prone break tests, or cumbersome wired sensors, Giatec’s patented maturity sensor uses a highly accurate ASTM-approved testing method.  This has translated into faster, safer, and more economical concrete construction.

SmartRock Plus continues to expand , more recently with the inclusion of Burnco, Cadman (A Lehigh Hanson company), and BARD Materials. With the addition of international producer, Swerock in Sweden, this program is continuing to roll out rapidly on a national basis.

“We are thrilled that the SmartRock Plus solution has grown exponentially,” says Sarah McGuire, Senior Director of Enterprise Sales. “We are seeing great success among our partners and contractors as they adopt this technology, and we’re looking forward to continuing to scale in 2020.”
