Precast concrete products are both functional and decorative. They can be shaped and molded into an endless array of sizes and configurations. Precast concrete can also be produced in virtually any color and a wide variety of finishes (acid-etched, sandblasted, smooth-as-cast, exposed-aggregate) to achieve the desired appearance for building and site applications.
Although precast concrete is quite heavy, nearly all other competing materials require machinery for handling and installation as well. Speed of installation is more dependent on excavation than product handling and placement. Unlike other materials such as fiberglass, precast concrete does not require the use of special rigging (such as fabric slings) to avoid structural damage.
Precast concrete products can provide a service life in excess of 100 years, and where severe conditions preclude service there are options available to further extend the life of the precast concrete product. Precast concrete also resists most substances. While no material is completely immune to attack from aggressive chemical agents, our precast products can often be designed to resist corrosion in specific applications.
