McGrath Quarries are one of the top suppliers of Certified Grolime in the West of Ireland. We supply our Grolime on a Delivery only Basis or Delivery and Spread Capacity. Our Grolime is tested by the Dept. Of Agriculture who in turn provide us with a license to sell the product. Grolime is vital for good grassland. It boosts the performance of slurry and chemical fertilizers while also correcting soil acidity. Grolime can be used at any time of the year and is safe to apply. It is non-toxic, non-hazardous and is also suitable for organic growing. Grolime is produced when quarried Limestone is crushed to a fine consistency. Reasons to use McGrath’s Grolime 1. Grolime corrects soil acidity. Since a large proportion of Irish soils are naturally acidic, planned lime application is essential for optimum growing conditions. 2. Grolime supplies calcium, and in some cases magnesium, important for healthy bone development in livestock for the production of milk, and helping to reduce the incidence of grass tetany. 3. Grolime, by regulating soil pH, improves the availability of other plant nutrients and important trace elements. 4. Grolime improves the quality of grass swards, raising soil pH, so good grasses such as ryegrass and clover can thrive. 5. Grolime, applied to acid soils, breaks down organic matter, releasing nitrogen to plants and assisting soil crumb formation. 6. Grolime is vital for top yields of cereal and beet, since pH levels for these crops are especially critical. 7. Grolime requirements can be pin pointed by fast and accurate tests for maximum benefit and efficiency. 8. Grolime is a natural, non-polluting soil conditioner, produced in Ireland to strict specifications which guarantee a consistent high quality product.
Hollowcore flooring comes in 1200mm wide sections. Our slabs are pre-stressed. There is steel strand at the bottom of the slab which is stretched and held in place until it forms a bond with the concrete in the slab. Once this occurs the strands are released. The tension in the strands pulls the slab together, causing the slab to act upwards creating a slight camber (bow). This strengthens the slab against the downward service loads which act on the floor once it is in place. The slabs come in a range of depths; 150mm 175mm 200mm 225mm 250mm

The technical knowledge gained from manufacturing pre-stressed flooring has been adapted and used in the design and production of our Pre-stressed Concrete Lintels.

Flo Screed is a self-levelling cement based mix, designed to be used in the interior of buildings where a subsequent floor finish is required. The Flo Screed is delivered to site in a readymix truck where it is then transferred to a specialised pump. The screed is then pumped to all areas of the house where it is levelled off to give a high quality smooth finish. A curing agent is then applied to speed up the curing process
