The roller compacted concrete technology

For instance, LH Engineering is an expert ROLLTEC? technology operator, a solution for road surfaces based on rolled concrete. In Poland, concrete mixing plants are easy to place near the construction site, which facilitates the use of Roller Compacted Concrete technology. The life cycle of Roller Compacted Concrete is between 30 and 50 years. This technology combines road pavement durability with low costs and easy construction. Moreover, it ensures higher road safety, contributing to 30% fewer road accidents when compared to standard asphalt roads.
