SPECIFICATIONS AND INSTALLATION

Superior Concrete Products is  NPCA certified

Since 1986, Superior Concrete Products, Inc. has manufactured and installed SUPERIOR-LEDGESTONE, SUPERIOR-COBBLESTONE, SUPERIOR-WOOD PLUS, SUPERIOR-BRICK, SUPERIOR-FENCE and SUPERIOR-RAIL wall systems from offices in Arlington, Texas. These precast concrete systems are produced using patented molding equipment and proprietary manufacturing techniques. They are specified as fences of choice by a growing number of architects, residential and commercial builders, contractors, municipal and state governments, and others in the construction industry.

Design Engineering

Superior Concrete provides design engineering services for every job. The color, strength, texture and size of wall system components can be custom designed to project specifications prior to manufacture. Soil testing and evaluation, fence design and architectural consulting are available services. Finishing treatments, including combining a Superior wall system with wrought iron, masonry columns, and gates of choice, can be incorporated.

Installation

Installation of Superior Concrete wall systems is quick and clean. Superior will handle all aspects of the installation process. Posts are set into piers drilled five feet apart. The posts are aligned, leveled and anchored in concrete footings, similar to other types of fence posts. Precast panels are inserted into and down the posts' tracks. The bottom panel keys into and is supported by the footing around each post. Additional panels interlock and stack in one foot increments. Panel caps complete the installation. Post caps are included with SUPERIOR-BRICK, SUPERIOR-COBBLESTONE and SUPERIOR-LEDGESTONE.
