Concrete Palisades: Everything You Need to Know

Concrete palisades are an alternative option to walls and other forms of palisade fencing. They are typically precast; therefore, allowing for quick and accurate installation. Precast concrete palisades are a fantastic option for securing the perimeter of industrial properties. This fencing option is typically seen around governmental properties, municipalities, cemeteries, construction companies, and more.

In this article, we will discuss why concrete palisades are such a popular and effective fencing option.


Benefits Of Concrete Palisades

There are many benefits that make concrete palisades the preferred fencing option for industrial properties. Some of the most noticeable benefits include:

  • Durability: Concrete palisade fencing is very strong and robust. It will therefore last for years to come. It is also weather resistant and will not rust, swell, or crack as is experienced with other materials such as wood or steel.
  • Safety: As this material is extremely strong it will be very difficult for intruders to break through the fence. It is also difficult to climb a palisade fence as the gap between the “poles” is just wide enough to offer sufficient grip to a foot for climbing. Concrete is also not a material that has resell value in the same way that metal does. Therefore, burglars will not try to steal the concrete and resell it.
  • Visibility: A concrete palisade also offers visibility to what is occurring past one's perimeter, allowing staff and security to notice any strange behaviour from passersby. They are also able to react preemptively, and can therefore take action before intruders can act. This will also act as a deterrent.
  • Low Maintenance: As concrete is strong and weather-resistant it does not require constant upkeep. It does not require one to sand off any rust or repaint and refinish the material. Therefore, once the fence has been installed it can be left for years to come.
  • Cost-Effective: Concrete palisades are affordable to install and as they do not require maintenance they will save you money in the long run. They also have a longer lifespan than other fencing options ensuring that you do not have to replace the palisade every few years.


Types Of Concrete Palisade Walls Available

At East Rand Walling there are a variety of commercial palisade fencing options that one can choose from. Each is suitable to specific environments and offers certain benefits depending on the level and type of security you require in your area.

  • Standard Concrete Palisade: A standard concrete palisade fence comes in four different heights consisting of 1.2m, 1.4m, 2.4m and 3m. The posts will typically be 600mm longer than the height of the fence to ensure that it is planted deeply and provides a sturdy foundation. The concrete itself has a strength of 20/24 MPa, guaranteeing that your concrete palisade is of a high standard.
  • Razor Wire Concrete Palisade: If you desire, there is an option where one can fit a concrete palisade with razor wire. This provides an extra layer of protection as the razor wire is placed atop the palisade to make it even harder for intruders to scale the fence and enter the property.
  • Concrete Palisade with Extended Posts: One can request a concrete palisade with extended posts. This makes it possible for one to fix electric fencing at the top of the palisade fence, ensuring that intruders are shocked and one is alerted if someone tries to scale the palisade fencing.


Precast Concrete Fencing Prices

As concrete palisades are precast, they are not as expensive as other fencing options but still provide one with the desired strength and longevity. The price of precast concrete fencing does depend on the height of the fence as well as the distance to be covered, and whether or not any special requests have been made.  When searching for a precast concrete manufacturer it is important to take the quality into account. If the quality is subpar it will not have the desired effect.
