Slab lifting & re-leveling

We relevel concrete slabs and lift them to datum levels using our pioneering geopolymer injection process.

Fast Injection Method – No Operational Closure

Using a geopolymer solution is far quicker than any other method of reinstating a slab. If needed, Geobear teams can be on your site within days to relevel the concrete slab and perimeter walls if required.

There is no requirement to remove anything from the site, all machinery, loaded racks stay in their place. We inject material beneath the slab to compress existing sub-base, fill voids and lift the existing slab back into place.

In the vast majority of cases, the slab has not failed, the sub-base will have been compromised, this means the slab drops and needs to be releveled. Other options such can be unnecessary and take weeks or months amounting to enormous disruption to operations. Avoid any loss of income by using Geobear.

Our engineers will verify all geopolymer injection works to ensure the solution is accurate and permanent.

Manufacture and storage

A sunken slab can be a major issue for an operating business. It may result in having to fence off areas, while equipment such as automated forklifts may not work correctly. In the worst case, the sunken areas can become a real health and safety risk for employees.

Common issues are machine vibration and failure due to rocking or loose slabs – we resolve this. Misalignment of automated racking machinery due to uneven floors – we resolve this. Dangerous uneven slabs affecting forklifts and other vehicles – we resolve this.

Roads

Concrete road slabs sinking on a motorway is common across the UK & Ireland. We provide a fast lifting solution that mitigates water ingress and raises slabs to ensure a level journey for traffic – we work ahead of surfacing contractors in a collaborated way. Our teams work overnight to deliver repairs, ensuring minimal impact on road users, the method means slabs are trafficable in minutes.

Homes

Homeowners regularly experience a sinking or sunken floor in their homes. The solution we provide is a fast, non-disruptive repair with no major digging necessary; homeowners can even stay in their property whilst repairs take place. Any property can be prone to a sinking slab, small discreet injections by Geoacross the affected area solve this with the minimum of fuss.

Solution

The Geobear re-leveling process provides a fast, accurate and cost-effective remedial solution for subsidence or settlement stabilisation and, where possible, re-levels sunken concrete slabs.

We use a special geo-polymer resin that is designed to re-level your surface in a quick and non-disruptive manner. The resin is injected into the ground through small holes and expands below ground to lift the sunken floor. It follows the path of least resistance until all space is filled and the soil is suitable compacted enough to bear the load of the structure above and begin raising it up.

Due to the fast setting time of the geo-polymer material, re-leveling offers distinct advantages over other remediation methods. Geobear re-leveling is faster and less disruptive than piling or underpinning. Piling and underpinning require invasive excavation using heavy machinery that’s loud and disruptive to the site occupants. In most cases that Geobear deals with, customers can continue their normal operations during remediation works and the area being treated can be recommissioned for use within minutes of the works being completed.

This makes it perfect for sites that see a lot of use and for businesses that need the site to continue functioning. We pride ourselves on our convenient service that aims to fix your problem with as little disruption to you as possible. Our team is trained to work with clients, to configure the most convenient schedule for them – for example, we’ll often work at night when the site doesn’t need to be in use.
