Used by construction workers to smooth and level surfaces made from soil, gravel and tarmac, compaction plates are a crucial addition to many domestic and industrial sites. Whether you’re laying a concrete slab or building a trench, this handy piece of machinery is vital to ensure an even, level foundation. Useful for projects taking place in tight, narrow spaces, plate compactors are a valuable asset to any construction site, no matter how big or small.
How to Use a Vibrating Plate Compactor
Before you start the engine on your compactor plate, it’s important to ensure that you are wearing all the relevant PPE. This includes safety glasses, gloves, earplugs and industry-approved steel-cap boots. Once the machine is on, make sure you have a tight, firm grip on the handle. It may feel like the machine is floating over the top of the surface, but don’t worry, if you’re using the tool correctly, the compactor plate will be hard at work. Compress the area back and forth, gradually creating an even, level surface. View our efficient compactor plate hire options below.
