In the first phase of the production of our ledgestone concrete fence, we mix the concrete , this goes according to a very well defined and calculated formula where we mix cement, aggregates, chemicals colorant and fiberglass to obtain the perfect concrete for our products.
The different sections of the concrete fence are poured in molds each of a specific form and type. Some molds are poured manually while some require heavier equipment like a fork lift. Metal rebar is positioned in each mold before the concrete is poured for additional strength.
After the pouring of the concrete into the different molds, we then vibrate the molds at a high frequency in order to remove all air bubbles and make the concrete as solid and compact as possible. The initial curing and drying takes place in the molds.
After the initial curing period of about 12 hours, the products are removed form the molds and put on storage pallets to dry in open air for a period of 28 days. During this drying period the strength of the concrete products will go up to about 5000psi.
The different parts of the Ledgestone wall are now ready to be transported and installed at the customers location. The fence can be positioned directly in the ground or on top of a retaining wall usually made of store. The top part of the wall is closed and sealed with a cap.
