Our specialist and in-house surface preparation division utilises the very latest floor grinding equipment on projects across the UK and Ireland.

Floor grinders (also referred to as concrete floor grinders or concrete grinders) are used by our specialised surface preparation division.

What is Scabbling used for?

Floor grinders (also referred to as concrete floor grinders or concrete grinders) are used by our specialist surface preparation division. We use a range of scabbling equipment on surface preparation in projects across the UK and Ireland.

Scabblers are used for general preparation and also for removing 3-20mm off a concrete floor slab relatively quickly as this cannot be achieved by vacuum blasting or triple head grinding.

Scabblers use compressed air to hammer piston-mounted bits into the concrete surface. They tend to roughen the concrete surface more than grinding or scarifying

For many industrial and commercial flooring projects, scabbling and professional surface preparation are vital to ensure project success. For this reason, it is important to utilise a specialist contractor who is able to ensure your floor is prepared correctly.

Why AFS?

We provide the complete surface preparation service across the UK and Ireland. As a specialist flooring contractor, we understand the importance of professional surface preparation and so we utilise our own in-house surface preparation division with access to all the latest preparation equipment on all our projects.

We realise that some clients and projects only require surface preparation, so our specialised scabbling surface preparation service is available for hire on projects right across Ireland and the UK.

If you have a surface preparation requirement for projects in Dublin, to Cork to Belfast, London or Glasgow, our scabbling service is available to help your next project.
