Feb 12

They are produced by an improved method of vibration casting.

The variety of surface texture of these materials is constantly increasing, expanding the range with each passing day. Therefore, we can build a beautiful and unique fence for centuries. In addition, it does not require lining or annual painting.

Features concrete fences

The scheme of the use of various block elements

  • Fences made of decorative concrete blocks will surely benefit from a combination with other materials. - it will perfectly decorate and significantly expand the service of such fences.
  • These blocks are produced in various shapes, textures and colors that mimic all natural building materials. : stone, brick, wood. But concrete doesn't suffer from weathering like those specified originals, it's stronger and easier to install, and it's priced much lower.
  • By adding high-quality dyes to the concrete mix, elements of all colors are obtained. . In addition, we can repeatedly repaint the fence at will.


Types of prefabricated elements having dimensions for the design of fences

Any concrete block fence has significant advantages.

  • Its insulating properties are excellent: the blocks inside the voids retain heat.
  • The number of joints is minimal, which speeds up the process of building a fence.

A fence of lightweight aggregate blocks can imitate any natural material.

  • A large assortment of prefabricated lightweight concrete and aggregate fence elements ensures the exclusivity of the fence, the possibility of any decorative combinations.

  • Ribbon foundation of solid materials - a reliable basis for such a capital fence. It will easily support the weight of massive wrought iron gates, spans and pillars.
  • Bearing and aesthetic functions play support columns.
  • We also observe the outer unit of the house, the whole site in combination with decorative staves, pillars, the foundation of this fence.

Precast post

  • A concrete block fence, like any stone fence, is installed on a strip foundation and we connect the separate blocks with masonry mortar, as shown in the video.
  • Clay and glass building materials can decorate the top of a concrete fence or its supports.

Laying of foundations

  1. We mark the foundation with pegs and a rope and sketch its outline with chalk.
  2. Let's dig a trench along the contour.
  3. Make a solution of cement and sand (1:5) to fill the foundation.
  4. Fill the solution in a trench, drive it in and level the surface. After a day, the foundation will harden.

Trick! Reinforcement rods vertically embedded in the foundation trench, which fall inside the hollow blocks of the first row, must be poured with concrete in order to strengthen the structure.

Construction of the fence

The elements, as in the designer, we put on top of each other.

  1. We make the same masonry mortar.
  2. We will distribute it on the foundation and on it, pressing or tapping with a mallet, lay the first row of blocks, then all subsequent ones. The thickness of the joints between the prefabricated parts of 1 cm, remove excess mortar with a trowel, and the joints are fixed by jointing.
  3. We will make a tile for garden paths. The design instructions advise using tiles proportional to the blocks so that they do not hang over the fence, which visually lowers the fence.

Trick! It is better to glue the fence from the usual concrete building blocks with a layer of 1 cm, and after an hour level with a lath and smooth with a plaster line.

Designers successfully use a  wooden picket fence on top or simply overlapping concrete pillars.

Trick! Pine and spruce rocks are more durable and hold paint better; therefore, they are preferable for the upper levels of concrete fences.

  • Decorative lightweight aggregate plates imitating natural textures and ordinary buildings can be combined in different ways.
  • Monolithic brackets firmly hold beautiful vibro-molded panels on several rows of basement blocks that are not afraid of moisture or mechanical damage.
  • Luxurious imitation of ancient columns, wild stones, log cabins on concrete blocks will make our fence unique, always new and spectacular, and exceptionally durable.

Modern concrete fences will reliably protect our site and guarantee us absolute calm and aesthetic pleasure for several decades with little time and effort for its construction and maintenance.
