Precast Concrete Walls

Precast Concrete Walls Are An Efficient Alternative To Masonry and Wood

examples of precast concrete retaining walls

Traditional materials such as wood, vinyl, wrought iron, brick or concrete block are prone to deterioration due to ground movement, weather, environment, temperature, and insects. However, a precast concrete wall endures with very little maintenance.

The Benefits of Precast Concrete Walls

  • Extremely durable and stable
  • Low maintenance
  • Easy to color and customize
  • Moderately priced building material
  • Not affected by insects
  • Available universally
  • Can be formed into many designs
  • Capable of being engineered for most any application

Precast Concrete walls have been steadily growing in popularity for many years, but recent developments in concrete forming techniques have increased their efficiency and aesthetics.

Precast Concrete Fencing—The Ultimate Solution

Precast industrial and commercial concrete fencing is installed by either setting the support columns (or posts) into or on top of caisson footings and then installing the concrete panels into column voids by stacking them one upon another.

Several Methods Of Attaching The Columns To
The Caisson Footings Include:

Precast concrete or steel columns are embedded into the caisson footings extending up to the height of the wall and then the panels are stacked into the column grooves to the wall height.

Grouted cell connection whereby a column with a center void is placed over a caisson footing with protruding rebar, and once the columns are set in place and shored/braced, concrete/grouting is then poured into the void to secure the column to the foundation. On shorter walls, the panels are usually set prior to grouting the voids in the columns. On taller walls the columns are usually grouted and allowed to cure before setting the panels.

Mechanical connection whereby the column has mechanical fasteners fabricated into the column which attach to embedded fasteners cast into the caisson footings.
StoneTree® Patented Design, whereby a structural rigid support is embedded into the caisson footing extending up to support the Combo-Cast™ column/panel fence wall section.

Installing Precast Concrete Walls

There are many factors that affect the cost of installing an industrial or commercial concrete fence, such as: size of the wall, water drainage, soil conditions, architectural finish, etc.

Decorative Concrete Wall Options

AFTEC’s concrete wall systems incorporate advanced technology in the production of concrete form liners to produce the same texture and design on both vertical faces of the fence wall. This method allows highly defined textures and details to be duplicated on the concrete surfaces with exceptional realism, whether it’s ledge stone, dry stack stone, block, slate, ashlar stone, stucco, sand finish, split face block and architectural designs. The finished panels are colored with a stain sealer.
