Famous Walls throughout History

Walls have been part of just about every culture throughout history, and with good reason. For centuries, people everywhere have seen the need to defend their communities, cities or entire countries from unwanted intruders. Walls have also been used historically to draw clear lines between opposing peoples. We also know that walls can be used symbolically as a means of memorializing or remember important people and events. Here, the wall experts at Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls review some of the most famous walls in history.

What Is a Rampart, Anyway?

If you’ve ever wondered what a rampart actually is, you’re not alone. This is not a term we use in everyday conversation anymore, unless maybe you’re at a baseball game singing, “O’er the ramparts we watch’d…” However, there was a time when ramparts were a common thing, and guess what they were made of? That’s right- stone, and eventually, concrete! So the experts at Permacast Precast Concrete Fences & Walls are here to help you discern exactly what a rampart is and was, and one could be useful to you today.

So What Else Is Precast Concrete Good For…?

As we already know, precast concrete is an efficient, cost-effective way to create multiple building elements. Since the materials are made in a factory or casting yard, many variables like weather, time, and space can be controlled. This means more accuracy and less guess-work when it comes to a building project. However, have you considered other ways precast concrete can be used to further a project and create quality components quickly? At Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls, we see the possibilities and want to help you see them, too.
