  2. Decorative reinforced precast concrete modular component systems.
  3. Screening and sound walls include posts, panels and caps. Split rail fences include posts and rails.
  4. Precast concrete shall have a minimum compression strength of 5,000 psi @ 28 days.
  5. Fiberglas and steel reinforced components. All reinforcing steel shall conform to ASTM – A615, Grade 60. All ties and stirrups shall conform to the requirements of ASTM -A 615, Grade 40.
  6. Systems manufactured in integrally colored earth tones. Custom, white and premium colors are available.
