As you’ve probably learned by now, there is a multitude of different types of walls around the world. Walls are used for many different purposes, most notably for security purposes, defense of a building or structure, or to protect a particular area from severe weather like flooding. However, another potential threat to personal or corporate property that we don’t talk about as much is that of wildlife. As an ancient means of warding off wandering animals, the French designed a concept called the Ha-ha Wall, which the English adopted quickly and still employ today. Here, the experts at Permacast Concrete Fencing & Walls will show you what these clever structures are and how you might find a use for them in your upcoming projects.
When talking about the future of concrete, it’s important to first make mention of its enduring past. Concrete has a 70+ year history that has served civilization well. But it has not been without its flaws. We’ve learned how to accommodate them, work around them, prepare for them…we even mix concrete with additives to combat the few flaws concrete is known to have. But now we’re finding that there are new ways to eliminate some of those flaws altogether, making the creation of concrete more efficient and reducing long-term costs. At Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls, we’re excited about these developments and we think you will be too. You’re going to want to check this out.
In the world of construction, making concrete slabs fit correctly the first time can be a frustrating task. Pouring concrete is a messy process that is often subjected to the surrounding environmental conditions, including weather and the surrounding area. However, when products are pre-designed in-house, the outcome is far more predictable and the amount of waste becomes negligible, creating a more efficient production process all the way around. At Permacast Precast Concrete, we attribute our efficiency and low expense to our adjustable molds, which allow us to create the perfect slab of concrete the first, every time.
