Altrad Belle Construction
Altrad Belle is the brand behind the quintessential orange cement mixers seen on construction sites up and down the country. They have been making portable cement mixers since the 1950s, when Belle’s founder designed his first portable site mixer.
Belle Construction Equipment has a reputation for quality which comes from its stringent testing and quality control at its base in the Peak District in Derbyshire. The company is also proactive in addressing Hand Arm Vibration (HAV) and have developed compaction and cutting equipment to reduce the vibrations whilst maintaining high performance.
Red Band have been working with Altrad Belle for several years and can also supply genuine Belle parts when needed.
When it comes to wheelbarrows, Belle are the leaders of the pack and their Warrior is the strongest builder’s barrow we have ever seen. It is designed for heavy-duty work and built to outlast cheaper alternatives. Belle also own the Bragagnolo brand, associated with the yellow ‘Gardenia’ scaffold hoist barrow.
Belle Cement Mixers
If you see an orange-coloured portable mixer on a construction site in the UK, it’s very likely to be made by Altrad Belle. The Minimix, Maximix and Premier XT mixers are tried and tested by construction companies and individuals and are famous for their performance and reliability.
Belle Plate Compactors
Also known as whacker plates, the compaction plates by Altrad Belle are made to an extremely high standard, including exceeding the HAUC ‘Streetworks’ specifications for the reinstatement of footpaths.
Belle Floor Saws
Microtrenching is the process of cutting a channel in the road surface in order to accommodate cabling. This is traditionally done by doing two cuts in the surface, however Altrad Belle developed the Duo 350X which makes simultaneous parallel cuts. This means you can get through the same job in half the time, as you are only making one pass along the trench. Coupled with a micro-trenching rammer, also made by Belle, it decreases the time spent on the project, and further reduces the risk of discomfort and injury from vibration.
