Unique Design Features

Precast concrete ensures a quality and durable product because it is cast in a controlled environment. International Fence uses a unique wet-cast concreting system, providing a maintenance free, dense weather and salt resisting surface. Wet cast concrete allows for a variety of colours and finishes, including sand blasted, exposed aggregate, acid washed and bush hammered, providing the owner with the ability to adapt the fence to the individual project needs.

The precast panels are mounted to steel posts and anchored with a caisson foundation, uniquely designed for every project to accommodate the type and condition of the soils at each site. The following design features are standard:

  • Reflective on both sides
  • Length of panel has been designed to minimize site disturbances
  • Galvanized steel posts
  • Epoxy coated reinforcing steel

Other optional features include:

  • Various heights and configurations are available to suit the needs of the project
  • Retaining wall panels are available where elevations may vary
  • Access doors and fire hose openings are available where required
  • Precast column covers that are placed between concrete panels, concealing the supporting steel posts

The Vertarib Series is uniquely designed to achieve an effective, visually attractive and economical product. The concrete perimeter rib allows for the provision of the concrete cover to the reinforcing steel, while the recessed center ensures a lighter, more manageable handling weight. Further, the textured surface will disperse the sound waves as they strike the wall, increasing the effectiveness of the fence as a sound barrier and reflector.

The Palladian Series has the same reflective properties as the Vertarib Series, although aesthetically it is much different. The Palladian Series concrete panels are broom finished and formed with false masonry joints in order to have the appearance of block masonry.
