Characteristics and description of the concrete fence
Concrete fences are manufactured by the shotcrete technology with the addition of industrial reinforcement and the use of certified raw materials in the concrete, therefore concrete fences have such good properties, strength, hardness, weather, frost, water resistance, etc.
How to handle concrete fences
When handling and transporting a concrete fence the following rules must be adhered to in order to avoid damage to the concrete fence. Fence parts must be stored, carried and transported only in a vertical position. When storing and transporting, it is necessary to have a solid base under the slab and it must be secured against movement. When carrying, grasp the slab by the sides, not the decorative ends, and keep the slab in a vertical position at all times.
How to assemble concrete fences
- Stake out and measure the route of the concrete fence and layout the placement of the concrete fence posts, taking into account the variety of terrain. The centres of the holes are at 205 cm. Further, stake out the direction and the route using stakes, using a string to secure the height of the fence.
- Dig excavations for setting the posts according to their dimensions, both width and length of the post. The post is set to the depth according to the chosen fence height. Then settle and secure the posts in a perpendicular position and backfill them with soil if circumstances permit. Otherwise we recommend concreting them.
- Slide in the bottom sections (a 2m long spirit level or other 2m long material can be used to replace the slab for ease), make any post alignment and then slide in the other fence sections. If necessary, sealing foam can be used to level and secure the slabs against movement. (Or cement adhesive commonly available in building supplies stores)
