Superior Concrete

2015 – News Release Archive

Superior Concrete Products, a North-Texas-based manufacturer of precast concrete fence and barrier products, was selected by a Southlake homeowner to replace a wood fence that had seen better days. Richard Asprey and his wife Michaela were surprised when they realized their pricey wood fence was deteriorating and needed to be replaced with just over a decade of service. Replacing a fence every decade or so seemed like throwing away good money, so the homeowner started researching alternative fence materials. Spotting an attractive concrete fence in their neighborhood, the Aspreys reached out to the manufacturer, Todd Sternfeld the CEO and founder of Superior Concrete Products, to learn more about his products and services.

“While traditional fences look good when installed, the Texas heat, ground movement and weather deteriorates them quickly. It only takes a few years before home or business owners must start an endless cycle of patch and repair as rotting lumber, rust or cracking mortar erode the integrity of conventional fence materials. With precast concrete, you have all of the advantages of old-style fencing without any of the headaches,” said Sternfeld.

“Superior Concrete Products has been producing fences in a variety of sizes, finishes and colors for more than 29 years. The key advantage of precast concrete is that it is strong, and you can duplicate the look and feel of wood, brick, stucco, or stone, while manufacturing a product that is pleasing to the eye. For homeowners who are tired of spending their spare cash and weekends making repairs, a custom fence made of precast concrete will be the last fence you purchase for your property. I guarantee it,” he added.

After speaking with Sternfeld, the Aspreys selected a stately 8-foot-tall Superior Ledgestone™ fence and column system in White Portland precast concrete. “I’m from England, and it was surprising to learn how quickly the Texas climate and those brutally hot summers damaged our wood fence,” said homeowner Richard Asprey. “I like my home and wanted a permanent fence solution that offered privacy. And, the fence needed to be attractive, compliment the exterior of my home and yard, while being maintenance free. I couldn’t be more pleased with my new precast concrete ledgestone fence. The install went smoothly and the crew left my yard in shape for the new landscaping that was planted the following week.”

“Everything looks beautiful! And, now that the fence is installed, I like it so much that I’ve decided to order two additional fences for other properties that I own. The concrete looks like stacked ledgestone, but without the expense and mortar problems. Better yet, I will never have to pay for another repair or replace the fence – ever,” Asprey said.

Specializing in the manufacturing of precast fence and barrier products for home and business owners since 1986, Superior Concrete Products makes fences of various designs that are as good-looking as they are strong, and easy to construct. Composed of a proprietary post and panel system, Superior Concrete Products’ fences are designed to flex during adverse weather conditions and ground movement without failing – effectively withstanding hurricane-force winds and earthquakes. Impervious to damage from insects, rot and rust, all of the company’s fences can be customized by height, color and finish to compliment any décor.

For security-minded customers, the company has developed another new product enhancement – Superior Ballistics, a proprietary membrane that makes the company’s strong fences even more powerful. Targeting customers that need a high level of security, Superior Ballistics can be manufactured into Superior Ledgestone or any of the company’s other solid fence panels. Once the barrier is embedded, the fence becomes durable enough to withstand the impact of high-caliber ammunition. Most importantly, a ballistics-reinforced fence is virtually identical to all of the company’s other fence products.

In addition to fences, Superior Concrete Products offers a variety of other products and services. The company manufactures concrete columns, Recon™ retaining walls and precast buildings.

The company even installs security gates and systems that work with SCP fence products. “Good fences make for good neighbors, and all of our products are designed to be affordable, attractive and guaranteed to last a lifetime, which keeps you and your neighbors happy,” Sternfeld added.

Superior Concrete Products, a North-Texas-based manufacturer of precast concrete fence and barrier products, is launching a revolutionary new product – the Superior Board-on-Board™ concrete fence. A pioneering leader in the precast concrete fence industry, Todd Sternfeld, owner and CEO, is introducing another industry-first – a product that duplicates the grain and appearance of popular cedar board-on-board wood fencing.

“Early in my career, I realized the frustration my customers felt as they struggled to maintain, repair and replace fences that deteriorated after a few years of service. The search for a better fence led me to precast concrete. During the past 29 years, the Superior Concrete Products team has created a number of concrete fences in a variety of sizes, finishes and colors. And, our latest product innovation is the board-on-board precast concrete fence, which was cast directly from rough-hewn cedar fence planks,” said Sternfeld. “This fence looks and feels much like wood, and is unparalleled for its beauty, strength, and ability to outlast any other decorative barrier product in the market today.”

One of the first installations of this ground-breaking new product is in North Texas. A homeowner who was tired of ongoing maintenance issues with his wood fence was looking for a permanent fence solution.

“Wood fences may look good while they are new, but no one tells you how much time to takes hammering nails and inserting screws to maintain the appearance of the fence over time,” said William Hennington. “Spending so much time on fence repairs is no way to spend a weekend, so I started researching alternative materials for the privacy fence surrounding my new home. I discovered a different kind of fence material – concrete. Since the Superior Concrete Products corporate office was close by, I stopped in to look at product samples and meet the company’s owner – Todd Sternfeld. The look and design of the product combined with the attentive service I received from the Superior Concrete Products team convinced me that purchasing a board-on-board concrete fence was a good investment for my new home.”

“Now that it is installed, I absolutely adore my new fence! It looks exactly like a cedar board-on-board fence, and the fence is so solid and strong that I have no doubt it will last a lifetime. Better yet, it requires no maintenance. To test the reaction of my friends I invited a few over to look at my new concrete fence. They couldn’t believe it wasn’t real wood. Some were so stunned they had to actually touch the fence to be convinced that it is made of concrete instead of cedar,” Hennington continued.

Since 1986, Superior Concrete Products has specialized in developing fence and barrier products for home and business owners that are as good-looking as they are strong, and easy to construct. Composed of a proprietary post and panel system, Superior Concrete fences are impervious to rot, insects and rust. In addition, they are also designed to flex during adverse weather conditions and ground movement without failing – effectively withstanding hurricane-force winds and earthquakes.

Available in a range of sizes, finishes and colors, Superior Concrete Products currently manufactures precast fences that duplicate the look of brick, stacked stone, and stucco. In addition to Superior Board-on-Board, the company also makes split rail fencing and other concrete products in a wood finish. And, as with all Super Concrete Products fences, each one can be customized to compliment any décor.

In addition to Superior Board-on-Board, the company has also developed another new product enhancement – Superior Ballistics, a proprietary membrane that makes the company’s strong fences even more powerful. Targeting customers that need a high level of security, Superior Ballistics can be manufactured into the board-on-board fence or any of the company’s other solid fence panels. Once the barrier is embedded, the fence becomes durable enough to withstand the impact of high-caliber ammunition. Most importantly, a ballistics-reinforced fence is virtually identical to all of the company’s other fence products.

Superior Concrete Products offers a variety of other products and services in addition to concrete fences. The company manufactures concrete columns, marina blocks, Recon™ retaining walls and

precast buildings. Superior Concrete Products even installs security gates and systems in conjunction with their fence products. “We believe in providing superior products and superior service, and we design all of our products to be affordable, attractive and guaranteed to last a lifetime,” Sternfeld added.

Todd Sternfeld, CEO and owner of Superior Concrete Products (SCP), a North-Texas- based manufacturer of precast concrete fence and barrier products, has a soft heart. When
his 18-year- old daughter Sydney mentioned the idea of starting an educational program at Diamond Ranch Academy to help homeless pets and small animals, Sternfeld promised to build a shelter and provide the precast concrete materials for the project.

“Diamond Ranch Academy has a wonderful program that pairs students with horses and other large animals,” said Sydney Sternfeld. “And, while I enjoy working with the barnyard animals, my own dog, a big yellow Labrador Retriever named Lucky, inspired me to serve others by caring for homeless pets. Starting this new educational program will give more students an opportunity to learn how to work with rescued pets and other small animals that had been living on the city streets.”

Animals play an important role in the lives of the students at Diamond Ranch Academy. Many animals are naturally empathic – especially horses, and the school’s equine therapy has been especially popular among the students. Over the years other barnyard animals such as sheep, goats and pigs have been added to the program, giving students the opportunity to learn to care for and interact with the animals in a meaningful way. The academy’s animals help students develop trust, respect and other relationship skills.

“Sydney loves animals, and when I learned that she took the initiative to meet with Rob and Sherri Dias, the owners of Diamond Ranch Academy, requesting support for an educational program for rescued dogs, cats, rabbits and other small pets, I was determined to help,” said Sternfeld. “The school staff liked the idea and created a new educational program in her honor, calling it Sydney’s Shelter. Donating the building and fence was the least I could do for an organization that does so much good work to help our young people.”

This animal facility is no small building. Plans call for a 2,400-square- foot climate-controlled facility complete with a porch that runs the length of the building. The inside of the building will feature designated eating and sleeping areas for the animals, in addition to rooms where students can groom and train the pets. A fenced enclosure is also planned so that the dogs and larger pets can play safely outside with the students.

“Sydney’s Shelter is funded primarily through donations,” said Toni Ritchey, founder of Empower Me Up, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that empowers youth and funds unique educational experiences and innovative programs for Diamond Ranch Academy and other schools. “The academy is donating the land, foundation and labor, while Superior Concrete Products is giving thousands of dollars in materials to build the structure and enclosure. All we need to complete the project is to put a roof on the building and finish the interior of the structure. When it comes to helping young people, our donors are generous, and our goal is to fund Sydney’s Shelter, a unique and innovative teaching facility for these teens, without incurring any additional expense to the academy.”

The exterior of the animal facility will be made of durable, reinforced precast concrete panels that duplicate the rich look of deep wood-grain texture. Constructed of Superior Concrete Products’ proprietary post and panel system, the shelter will be attractive, strong, and easy to build. Engineered to withstand wind conditions, shifting terrains and extreme temperatures, the company’s fence panels are strong enough to sustain the ravages of a hurricane and an earthquake.

In addition to donating the building, SCP is also giving a Superior Concrete Rail™ fence to provide an enclosure for the land surrounding the building. Designed to compliment the surroundings in which it is installed, the sturdy three-rail fence looks like expensive wood, yet eliminates the quick deterioration and aging of other fence products. Better yet, the fence – like all of Superior’s products – is impervious to damage caused by termites and other wood-eating insects. And, Superior Rail is a heavy-duty system that outlasts traditional wood, wire or metal fencing, and prevents the costly maintenance and replacement issues.

“We are delighted to introduce Sydney’s Shelter into the Diamond Ranch Academy curriculum,” said Kade Mathews, clinical director of Diamond Ranch Academy. “Our youth benefit from Real-Life Transition Programs that teach various pet care and training techniques. At Diamond Ranch we provide a nurturing environment that inspires our students to develop a lifelong love for learning and a positive plan for a future career path. And the new shelter so generously donated by Superior Concrete Products and through the support of others is a gift that will continue to benefit the school and our students for years to come.” For information on donating to the Sydney’s Shelter pet program at Diamond Ranch Academy, please go to http://www.empowermeup.org/current-projects.html.



Company to Manufacture and Build a Superior Concrete Fence;
Launches Superior Ballistics Product Innovation

Superior Concrete Products, a North-Texas-based manufacturer of precast concrete fence and barrier products, plans to exhibit at the World of Concrete Tradeshow in Las Vegas on Feb. 2-6, 2015. This is the 30th time the company has participated in the international tradeshow which features companies from around the globe that dominate the commercial concrete and masonry construction industry.

A pioneering leader in the precast concrete fence industry, Todd Sternfeld, owner and CEO along with his management team, will demonstrate how Superior Concrete Products (SCP) manufacturers and builds a Superior Fence. In addition, SCP will launch Superior Ballistics, an exclusive product enhancement that strengthens and reinforces the company’s fence panels, making them impervious to close-range rifle fire.

“At Superior Concrete Products, we make fences for home and businesses owners that are as attractive as they are strong, and easy to construct,” said Sternfeld. “Composed of a proprietary post and panel system, our fences are designed to flex during adverse weather and ground movement without failing – effectively withstanding hurricane-force winds and earthquakes. And, we’ve developed Superior Ballistics — a new product that makes our strong fence even more powerful for our security-minded customers that need a barrier durable enough to withstand the impact of high-caliber ammunition.”

“Aside from the strength and attractiveness of SCP’s precast concrete fence panels, our fences are also designed to be a quick and simple install. In fact, a three-man crew can easily complete the construction of a fence for the average homeowner in only 2 to 4 days,” Sternfeld added.

To showcase Superior Ballistics and the company’s other fence and barrier products, Superior Concrete Products will host two booths during the World of Concrete Tradeshow this year. The larger booth, located in the Outdoor Silver Lot — booth #O31644, will feature molding and construction equipment that will be used to build a full-size replica of a Superior Concrete fence during the show. The live demonstration will be ongoing daily, as the staff demonstrates each step in Superior Concrete’s manufacturing process. Event participants are invited to ask questions and observe as the SCP team demonstrates the versatility, strength and attractiveness of the Superior Fence.

In North Hall booth #N951, the Superior Concrete Products sales team will be on hand to discuss the full line of SCP fencing and other products, while Todd Sternfeld will field questions on Superior Ballistics and other related topics. Todd will highlight the need for a ballistics security fence that can be desirable by industrial users such as utility companies and other security-oriented customers as they seek to protect electrical substations, equipment installations, and critical personnel.
