Precast concrete has some advantages over that of poured in place concrete, and we’ll go over them here. Precast concrete consists of concrete (a mixture of cement, water, aggregates and admixtures) that is cast into a specific shape at a location other than its eventual location. The concrete is placed into a form, typically wood or steel, and cured before being stripped from the form, usually the following day. These components are then transported to the construction site for erection into place. Precast concrete can be plant-cast or site-cast, but is usually done in a factory for increased quality control.
Precast concrete components are reinforced with either conventional reinforcing bars, strands with high tensile strength, or a combination of both. Use of these methods helps control cracking to specified limits allowed by building codes. Precast components are used in various applications and projects of all types.
CONCRETE SLABS, SPLASH BLOCKS & BENCHES
Keep your AC Unit or Heater Running Optimally on a Precast Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs and pads are the predominant support structure of air conditioner units and heat pumps across the country. Why? Because they work. They keep your expensive AC units or heat pumps from sitting on shifting slate or (even worse), the dirt, which shortens the life of the unit by years! What makes concrete slabs so great is they are so durable. Concrete is made of cement mixed with water and other aggregate materials such as gravel, and sand, and other chemicals that are bonded together in such a way that creates one of the best building materials in the world. Not only that, concrete is hailed as the most popular building material due to its durability, workability and affordability. Indeed, concrete is priced at a reasonable rate for all the advantages that it gives. For the standard concrete slab that is used for pool pumps and filters, hot water heater bases, walkways and more, the cost would just be about $3 per square foot.
Splash blocks can be used to manage the drainage of rain water away from your home or building. Our splash blocks come in three lengths: 24", 30", and 36".
