|Quality Control Policy Statement|
|At Gainey's Concrete Products, Inc., the single most important factor in quality control is management's committment to produce quality products. Management implements a quality control program that monitors quality and reports on conformance with requirements.|
|Concrete Slump Test
A slump test is performed for each 150 cubic yards of concrete, or once per day, whichever comes first. Slump tests are performed in accordance with ASTM C143.
|*Gainey's Concrete Products is a Quality CERTIFIED PLANT by the National Precast Concrete Association|
Our Quality Control Inspector inspects each form (once set is complete) for proper blockout location, cage position, pallet height, and presence of form oil.
After products are stripped from the forms, they are inspected for conformance with the design. Post-pour inspection records are kept on file for a minimum of three years.
