SmartRock, the first truly wireless concrete sensor, is helping top construction companies eliminate concrete testing delays and take back control of their schedules in over 9,000 projects across 80 countries.

SmartHub automatically collects concrete data recorded by wireless SmartRock sensors and uploads it to the Giatec 360 cloud via LTE connection where it is synced to mobile devices with the SmartRock app.

The Giatec 360 platform sends smart notifications to users’ mobile devices, letting them know when their concrete has reached specified temperature or strength thresholds. Together with SmartRock and SmartHub, Giatec has built an ecosystem that ensures faster, safer, and more economical concrete construction.
