Concrete Wall Panels

precast panelsConcrete wall panels are used for many applications, and are an affordable option for both residential and commercial properties.  Boundary walls are a good security option, but that does not mean we need to put up with lopsided, unsightly or badly designed walls.

Boundary walls should be an extension of the architecture of your buildings.  It should add value and aesthetic appeal.  Good boundary walls do add value to your property, besides being a deterrent to unwelcome people wanting to access your property.

For security reasons, a boundary wall should not be built to eye level.   That would just encourage people to look over the wall, and is easy to scale.  If you want security then a high wall with razor wire is a good option.brick iron

When you have a precast concrete wall and wish to paint it, it is a good option to take into account how close the wall is to the building.  If the wall is close, then white is not an option to use, as the sun reflects off white and would make the house or building even hotter.   Neutral or slightly darker colours are a better option.

Boundary walls can be made more eye-appealing by planting shrubs or flowers that will give it a good aesthetic appeal.  Do not plant big trees close to boundary walls, as that would provide a good option for anyone wanting to gain access to your property.

It is always better to get a professional to design and install your walling, as the result would be of a high standard and last for many years.

Aluminium vs Steel

steel gateThere are differences between the two materials you need to know about before you make your choice for a gate.

Steel is inclined to rust, whereas Aluminiuim does not

Aluminium is not corrosive but steel and even galvanised steel is, so it is prone to rust in some areas.

All joints in a steel gate may be welded but each joint is painted with a cold galvanising paint that breaks down over time.

Rust is aggravated due to bad weather conditions like rain or ice.  It does speed up the process, thus decreasing the gate's product life.  

When this happens, you are left with an eyesore at your property entrance.bent aluminum gate

Even though hot dip galvanising would eliminate the need to apply cold galvanising, large gates are not handled well by the process and could be slightly warped.

Although painting steel gates is often recommended, the fact that the gate is constantly moving can cause chips which open the steel structire to rust.

Aluminium on the other hand, is protected by a thin layer of its natural corrosion properties, aluminium oxide which is a natural, rust resistant shield, thus aluminium gates remain aesthetically pleasing for years.

Steel on the other hand is a wise choice for added security, as aluminium is easily bent whereas steel is not.

If security is your priority then steel security gates would probably be your best option.
