Verti-Crete shows pre-cast concrete

American company Verti-Crete has made its debut at the Big 5 this year. The company is offering pre-cast vertical concrete fencing, and is confident that the show is an ideal platform to boost business.

"This is the week where it's all going to happen for us," said Dave Balls of Verti-Crete.

Verti-Crete provides pre-cast panel and post systems, which involves vertical concrete pouring into different designs creating a masonry appearance.

Balls added that the company's products are more durable than wood or vinyl fencing, are quicker to install and are more affordable compared to stone masonry.

The moulds are made from polyurethane, which means they are designed to last through hundreds of pours.

The posts are installed over footings with rebar anchors; once the footings are set, the hollow-core posts are set over the rebar to rest on each concrete base.

Verti-Crete posts can be stained to complement the theme of the property they are based around, and a team of three people can colour-finish up to 305m per day.

Half the amount of labour is required compared to the traditional horizontal steel bed method, and can produce up to 90m2 in a 3m x 4m area.
