What is Precast Concrete?
Unlike regular concrete products that are poured onsite, precast concrete is a type of concrete product that is produced using advanced manufacturing techniques and moulds in a controlled factory environment. Precast concrete products are available in a range of different sizes, shapes, and finishes and can be created using specified, architectural finishes like stains or polishes. All precast concrete products are poured, vibrated, and cured in the factory before being transported to the jobsite and placed in position with the help of a mobile crane.
Why Use Precast Concrete?
The precast concrete construction process is manufactured in a controlled factory setting, which means that the quality of the concrete products can easily be controlled and monitored throughout the entire casting process. Mixing, placing, and curing precast concrete in a factory also eliminates weather as a factor that could negatively impact the strength and durability of the finished product. Since precast concrete products are made with reusable moulds, it is easy to make exact copies of the same precast products for a more uniform end result to your project.
All precast concrete products also offer an accelerated curing time, which can greatly increase the strength of the products, as well as reduce the amount of time between the casting process and installation. Barriers and blocks can be installed immediately once on site because there is no need to wait for the concrete to gain strength, making the installation process much faster and smoother.
