The LATICRETE SUPERCAP System ensures safer jobsites for contractors and workers by dramatically reducing harmful silica dust, eliminating manual loading and lifting, and minimizing trip/slip hazards.
The system is a time-saving, cost-effective method for finishing new concrete or capping existing slabs which combines industry-leading, patented pump truck technology with our engineered self-leveling cements to deliver perfectly flat, dry floors. With its onboard generator and water system, the pump truck blends self-leveling material at street level, safely pumping the SUPERCAP product up to 50 stories high at a rate of 30,000 pounds per hour.
By storing and processing all raw materials at street level, the LATICRETE SUPERCAP system offers tangible safety advantages, including:
• Meets – and beats - OSHA Silica Dust Regulations – The traditional approach to self-leveling requires the manual loading of 50lb bags of material to each floor of the work site, where they are broken and mixed with water, inevitably releasing harmful dust inside the building. The LATICRETE SUPERCAP pump truck blends the cement formula at street level inside a silo which incorporates a negative air handling vacuum system. The truck’s high-output pumps send the finished product directly to the site, and no unmixed material ever enters the building. This allows the LATICRETE SUPERCAP System to comply with both current and proposed OSHA regulations.
• Reduces Chances for Injury – With the LATICRETE SUPERCAP System raw materials are delivered to the site in 2,300 lb. “supersacks” and lifted into the pump truck with an onboard crane. There is no manual loading, lifting or breaking of smaller bags, which greatly reduces the chance for injury.
• Minimizes Trip Hazards – The traditional approach to self-levelling requires electrically-powered mixers which typically use tie-in cables and extension cords throughout the work area, a major trip hazard. The LATICRETE SUPERCAP System’s patented pump truck uses an on-board generator to power the mixing and pumping system outside the building, away from the work area.
• Decreases Slipping Hazards – With its on-board water system and mixing occurring at street level, the LATICRETE SUPERCAP System doesn’t require extra hoses or water in the work area. This eliminates a major cause of slipping and injury on the jobsite.
“By eliminating risks on the jobsite with smarter technology like the LATICRETE SUPERCAP System, everyone can work safer”, said LATICRETE SUPERCAP Managing Director John Sacco. “LATICRETE SUPERCAP is proud to contribute to healthier and safer jobsites and we are eager to bring “The Next Generation Slab” to all regions of the country.”
