What is Precast Concrete Walling?

Concrete concrete wallingSo what is the point and benefits of precast concrete walls?

1- Quick Curing Time

As the precast concrete fencing is constructed off site, they are cured before they are installed. This allows the fence to be set immediately upon installation, which will keep the fence from developing cracks or water damage if it rains or weather temperatures rise or fall quickly. Poured concrete has to be poured when temperatures are at between 5 and 32 degrees, and allowed to cure for at least a week. This makes it difficult to find the right time to pour the concrete in some locations, and then allow it to cure without damage.

2 - Cleaner Method

Precast concrete fencing is formed in molds made to specifications of the fencing measurements. This is done off site in a factory setting which helps to keep the mess to a minimum as opposed to poured concrete which is mixed on site.

3 - Appearance

Another advantage of precast walling is that it is carefully measured, and each piece made individually to look professional and very uniform in appearance. Another note on appearance, is that you have options as far as textures and colors. It can be textured or painted, allowing you to match the fence to your homes exterior.

4 - Durability

Precast concrete is made in a temperate setting and allowed to properly cure before installation. It is very durable. When poured concrete is set on site, there is the chance that it will not cure properly, thus the possibility of it having issues later on.

5 - Quick Installation

Once the measurements are taken, the forms are poured and cured off site, then they are brought on site to erect the fence. This goes quickly which allows you to get your project done faster.

What type of maintenance is required?

precast concrete fenceIf you install a precast concrete wall or fence, virtually no maintenance is necessary. You can, however, paint it if you wish to change the colour, but, as colour is added during the manufacture process, it is not necessary to paint, unless, as stated, you wish to have a colour change.

You will never have to pay for painting, oiling , resealing or rust removal, etc. You will only need to wash the wall periodically should it get dirty. This is a simple task, using your garden hose.

As individual components can be replaced should they get damaged, repairing the walls is equalling uncomplicated, and inexpensive, as you do not have to do repairs to the entire structure.

warped wooden fenceDue to the fact that the casting and curing is done before the walls are erected, the structure will be solid and long lasting, and will be able to withstand the harshest climate. The structure is also not prone to rust, mould, insects or rot.

What Are Anti-Climb Spikes?

rotating anti climb spikesAnti-climb spikes are widely used on top of walls and fencing and act as a deterrent to a would-be intruder.   They come in single spike, double spike and rotary razor.   There is also a blade spike often used on the top rails of palisade fencing.

Perimeter walls are the first line of defence when it comes to protecting our homes.  Fences should be at least 2.1m high, to deter a would-be intruder from trying to climb over your perimeter fencing.warning sign

Any product that is on top of your wall if it is high, becomes much more effective as it becomes virtually impossible to tamper with it.

Do not have wide pillars or any foothold that will help an intruder climb over.

An excellent product to fit to the top of the wall would be wall spikes as they are heavily ribbed for strength and extremely dangerous to climb over.  Make sure the anchors used to fit the razor spikes are very difficult to remove, they should expand inside the wall for added benefit.

Do not plant trees or bushes close to your perimeter, as they afford burglars an excellent hiding place.  Any bushes should be small and neatly trimmed to prevent anyone from hiding behind them.

A wall that has razor spikes is a good way to keep your family safe and secure.
