These panels are attractive and durable; durable meaning they are not only strong but also built to last for years on end. Concrete is cost-effective in most construction situations, and fencing is no different. Weak panels can result in the entire fence blowing over during bad storms. The answer is to strengthen your panels and fence posts. They are less likely to topple over due to bad weather or even vandalism when compared to ordinary timber posts.
It is best to put panels between slotted fence posts. This increases the fence's reliability, because timber simply doesn't last as long as concrete. Another advantage to consider is the elimination of nails and screws. Therefore, if the panel should become damaged and a replacement panel can easily be installed. You wouldn't even need any special knowledge to perform this procedure.
Logic aside, sometimes you just have to follow your heart and choose the more aesthetically beautiful option. Precast concrete fences come in some excellent designs. Some of these fence panels actually look like stone, or even brick, and come in a variety of colors.
There are many reasons to install concrete panels in a business or residential area. For example, law requires that a fence be installed around high-voltage equipment. You would also need fence panels for railway lines, heavy machinery, explosive factories, industrial centers, airfields, military areas, prisons, zoos and farms with large animals. Even some swimming pool owners are now building fences for their resident's safety. As time goes on, expect many more companies and residential areas to invest in their personal safety. Wood or timber doesn't inspire much confidence. Concrete on the other hand is proven to be reliable.
Why not consider buying concrete fence panels to increase the safety and style of your establishment? Concrete guarantees that your fence will stay put for years to come! Contact a construction company experienced with fencing to learn more.
"I have a vision that eventually this product [precast concrete fences] could be for do-it-yourselfers if it was manufactured in lightweight concrete," states the CEO of a leading precast fence producer. This vision is now a reality with the introduction of lightweight concrete fence panels.
Cellular lightweight concrete (CLC) is produced by taking a mixture of cement, sand and water and combining it with a foam made through the action of compressed air and a chemical foaming agent. The foam leaves a multitude of tiny non-interconnected air pockets within the concrete mix. One can control the density of the final cast concrete shape by controlling the amount of foam introduced in the mix.
Fence panels made by this technique typically have half the density of regular precast panels available on the market. Some panel styles weigh as little as 39 lb.For maximum strength, the posts used in conjunction with the panels are made from regular high strength concrete. These concrete fence systems are designed to meet wind speed ratings of 110 mph or more.
The lightweight panels make it possible for two people to install a 6' tall concrete fence without the need for heavy equipment. Installation in confined or sensitive landscaped spaces is easy to accomplish. The lighter panels mean more product can be hauled on trucks resulting in less freight cost, less energy cost and less pollution.
