The treatment of your recent concrete
The Rainu’Diamant process is recommended for slippery concrete surfaces that are less than a year old. The use of diamond blades prevents the concrete from chipping the surface. On recently laid concrete, Rainu’Diamant ensures a clean cut and sharp shaped grooves.
- Perfect for flat, recently laid concrete
- Creates a clean and precise cut
- Grooved floors are easier to clean
- Quick and easy worksite preparation
- Fully compatible with new suction automatic scrapers
Diamond blades operating at 2500 RPM, cut grooves 4 to 5 mm deep by 12 mm wide grooves into the concrete surface. These grooves are spaced 27 mm apart.
A self-propelled machine is used to ensure a consistent finish. The machine’s weight is spread across 6 stub axles.
Your questions onon Rainu’
When is the best time for Rainu’Diamant?
Rainu’Diamant is recommended for new or recently laid concrete surfaces. It is particularly well-suited to buildings which produce liquid manure and are equipped with automatic scrapers or suction robots. Rainu’Diamant uses diamond blades, guaranteeing a clean cut for your grooves. Rainu’Diamant can also be used on older, previously ungrooved concrete.
What does the Rainu’Diamant process involve?
We ask clients to prepare their concrete areas prior to our technician arriving. If the concrete is new, we will ask you to ensure it is clear of any obstacles that could get in the way of the machine.
For buildings which are in use, thorough scraping will suffice if the corridor is wet. There must be no dry or sticky residue on the surface of the concrete. Please make sure that you wet the concrete the night before if there is any dry muck on the surface, particularly during the summer. Ideally, corridors should be cleaned using a pressure washer.
When they arrive at the site, our technician will require access to a water tap. They will be equipped with connectors and pipes for hooking their machine up to the water supply.
Once the job is finished, it is recommended that you dispose of any concrete residue to prevent it from clogging the grooves as it dries. You may wish to use a rotary sweeper, a water bowser or a bale of hay mounted on a forklift/tractor.
You will be given more details when you speak to our sales department.
Will I need to take my animals out?
Ideally you would take your animals out. However, we work both in summer and winter in buildings, with or without livestock present. The machine is very noisy, but the sound produced is constant. Your animals will not be disturbed, even if they are close to the machine while it is running. For things to run more smoothly, it is best to work corridor by corridor if there are animals in the building. With milking robots, our technician will plan the job with you in advance to make sure that your robots are out of action for as little time as possible.
How long will the Rainu’Diamant process take?
We work using high-performance machines capable of grooving between 60 and 80 m2 an hour. Our technician will factor in your constraints to limit the amount of disturbance caused during the job.
How much does Rainu’Diamant cost on average?
Rainu’Diamant involves the use of diamond blades, making it more expensive than standard grooving. However, it is still a competitively priced solution to the problem of slippery floors – the cost is often less than that of losing one or two cows.
