Weighing and inspection of construction materials


The construction sector, heavily depends on the building materials industry. The production of these materials involves the mining, quarrying and processing of raw materials on an enormous scale, producing for example gravel, sand and bitumen for road construction or aggregate, cement and additives for concrete production.

Our range of industrial weighing and inspection equipment has everything needed to check incoming goods, stored materials for weight content and foreign bodies as well as weighing and checking materials and products before they are delivered to customers.  Industrial scales, load cells and checkweigher cover every application efficiently and reliably. In the case of bulky construction materials, Patricole’s wide range is the most efficient to weigh an entire delivery truck before and after loading.

Marking and coding construction parts


Flexible marking solutions for the construction industry can be implemented using Patricole’s range of coding systems, both automated and manual. The coders print on materials of all kinds without direct contact and can be adapted to specific requirements of the construction industry thanks to a wide array of functions. The JET3up PRO for example, features the IP65 protection class, making it ideal for dusty production environments.

Typical marking include

  • Company logos
  • Variable characters and text
  • Barcodes
  • Continuous numbers
  • Meter marking
  • Batch numbers/lot numbers
  • Graphics
  • CE marking
  • Quality logos/quality marking/quality seals


Typical materials include;

  • Plasterboard/drywall
  • Concrete
  • Ceramic
  • Stone
  • Brick/roof tiles/clinker
  • Goods in bags
  • Aluminum spacers (windows)
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Plastics
  • Wood

Reliable transit packaging solutions for the construction industry


The construction industry is characterized by different relevant applications, depending on the material to package that is tiles, bricks, cement blocks, pavers etc. Heavy loads of construction materials and products need a strong packaging partner who can supply the right strapping and wrapping solutions. Patricole can offer you a full box of secondary packaging systems to secure and protect your palletized loads;

  • PET straps
  • PP straps
  • Power stretch film
  • Plastic strapping tools

The use of the right dimension and quality of the Poliflex PP and Tensium PET plastic strap will ensure that you have high shock absorption in dynamic loads during transportation and handling, as well as the retained tension needed to sustain the safety factor of your package. Patricole’s offering also includes hand tools (link to strapping tool) and (link to strapping tool)) either for PP and PET.

Electrifying the construction industry


If we are to remove electricity from this present world, we will go straight back to stone age! And rightly so, because every aspect of human life and industry revolves around electricity, and this includes the construction industry. Part of the construction process involves the use of electrical machines like;

  • Concrete mixers.
  • Ramming machines.
  • Air compressors for jackhammers.
  • Electric motor driven conveyor belts for transporting building materials like bricks incase of multi-storey building construction.

At the appropriate stages of construction, the buildings will need electrical wiring, and the construction sites may also need lighting in cases of night shift work…all this calls for electrifying the construction site, which is what Patricole is there for. We supply electrical equipment which includes but not limited to;

  • Wiring and site lighting cables.
  • Earth-mates for site lightning conductors.
  • Wiring conduits, trunkings and accesories like sockets, switches, wall screws, fisher-plugs and sadle clips.
  • Light bulbs for the lighting systems.
  • DB’s and the relevant circuit breakers.

We also supply spares for the onsite electrical machines.
