Precast concrete is produced by casting concrete in a reusable mould or form, and is widely popular throughout NZ’s construction industry – allowing design versatility and minimal maintenance.
A variety of surface finishes are available to suit your precast needs:
Formliners, polishing, chemically treating, painting or other special coatings are available as surface treatments for appearance, environmental or durability of precast cement products.
Precast factories are experienced at handling a range of concretes. They’re able to ensure that necessary compaction, finishing and curing is achieved. Manufactured under controlled conditions in a special purpose facility, precast concrete is highly customised for each client.
Precast concrete products can withstand the most extreme weather conditions and will hold up for many decades of constant usage. This makes precast the perfect solution for agricultural structures.
Precast concrete products are commonly used in water troughs, feed troughs, culverts, effluent bunkers, feed pads and walls, stock stops, under passes and Y panels.
It’s common to employ precast concrete building components in architectural and structural capacities at the same time.
Precast concrete building components are commonly used in structural applications including foundations, beams, floors, walls and architectural applications including cladding.
Prestressing is a technique used to:
This technique is used to make concrete beams, columns, single and double tees, wall panels, and hollow core slabs.
Water management structures are designed for underground installation and specifically engineered for their environment. These precast concrete products include septic tanks, cesspits, pipes, manholes and rainwater tanks.
Many of them are modular in design and are available in a number of configurations. The structures are all connected and constructed with watertight integrity, so the contents discharge only through the proper outlet.
Precast concrete transportation products are used in the construction, safety and site protection of our road and railway transportation systems. They include railway sleepers, bridge super tees, segmental bridge units, tunnel segments, sound walls and barriers.
All our cement products are are suitable fit for precast concrete solutions. Find out what’s the most appropriate for your project:
