Letaba Lab is a SANS 17025:2005 accredited laboratory that carries out material testing in all Civil Engineering related fields. These include all the relevant tests related to, amongst others, asphalt, aggregate, concrete, water, soils, and gravels.
We have vast experience in the establishing and running of site laboratories in South Africa, and elsewhere in Africa. We have operated site laboratories in Angola, DRC, Eritrea, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe in the past, and are eager to explore the rest of our continent.
Letaba Lab offers a wide range of concrete testing on fresh and existing concrete. The tests on fresh concrete include, but are not limited to, the concrete slump tests, making and curing of concrete cubes and the compressive strength of concrete cubes. We also offer a concrete mix design service.
On existing concrete we offer a number of destructive and non-destructive tests. We offer a concrete coring service which can be utilized for testing or for the installation of services. We also use the latest scanning equipment and software to offer a Ferro scanning service that determines what steel reinforcing was used in existing concrete.
