Find Precasters or Suppliers that provide products, equipment and services to make precast concrete.
The average person is likely unaware of the presence of the hidden systems that make life what it is today: civilized. Sanitary and storm sewers, box culverts, catch basins, pump/lift stations, septic tanks, exterior grease interceptors, water storage tanks, wet wells, electrical and communication vaults, and many other products all play a pivotal role in maintaining a clean, healthy, productive environment for the inhabitants of the civilized world.
Without these systems, life would be much different. Much of the credit can be given to the main components of these systems, which typically consist of precast concrete. There are literally hundreds of precast concrete products produced today.
To see how important precast concrete truly is, check out our “Little Book of Concrete.”
To assist you in your search, products have been grouped into twelve product categories:
Precast concrete products can withstand the most extreme weather conditions and will hold up for many decades of constant usage. Products include bunker silos, cattle feed bunks, cattle guards, agricultural fencing, H-bunks, J-bunks, livestock slats, livestock watering troughs and etc.
Precast concrete building components and site amenities are used architecturally as cladding, trim products, accessories and in structural applications such as foundations, beams, floors, walls and other structural components.
Respectful preservation of remains – whether in underground vaults or above-ground in mausoleums – calls for quality watertight structures that withstand the tests of time and the forces of nature.
Storage of hazardous material, whether short term or long term, is an increasingly important environmental issue, calling for containers that not only seal in the materials, but are strong enough to stand up to natural disasters or terrorist attacks.
Floating docks, underwater infrastructure, decking, railings and a host of amenities are among the uses of precast along the waterfront. When designed with heavy weight in mind, precast products counteract the buoyant forces of water significantly better than most materials.
Available in a rainbow of colors, shapes, sizes and textures, modular paving products create beautiful spaces inside and out – in homes, commercial buildings and public spaces. These versatile precast concrete pieces can be designed to mimic brick, stone or wood.
Prestressing is a technique of introducing stresses of a predetermined magnitude into a structural member to improve its behavior. This technique is usually found in concrete beams, spandrels, columns, single and double tees, wall panels, segmental bridge units, bulb-tee girders, I-beam girders and etc.
Precast concrete manufacturers located throughout North America produce a wide range of engineered earth retaining systems designed to provide a straightforward and cost-effective solution for your next project. Products include: commercial retaining walls, residential retaining walls, sea walls, mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) panels, modular block systems, segmental retaining walls and etc.
Stormwater management products are structures designed for underground installation that have been specifically engineered for the treatment and removal of pollutants from stormwater runoff. These precast concrete products include vaults, catch basins and manholes.
Precast concrete transportation products are used in the construction, safety and site protection of our road, airport and railroad transportation systems. Products include: box culverts, 3-sided culverts, bridge systems, railroad crossings, railroad ties, short-span bridges, sound walls/barriers, traffic barriers, tunnel segments and other transportation products.
Perfect for communications, electrical, gas or steam systems, precast concrete utility structures protect the vital connections and controls for utility distribution. Precast concrete is nontoxic and environmentally safe. Products include: hand holes, hollowcore products, light pole bases, meter boxes, panel vaults, pull boxes, telecommunications structures, transformer pads, transformer vaults, trenches, utility buildings, utility vaults, utility poles, controlled environment vaults (CEVs) and other utility structures.
Precast water and wastewater products hold or contain water, oil or other liquids for the purpose of further processing into non-contaminating liquids and soil products. Products include: aeration systems, distribution boxes, dosing tanks, dry wells, grease interceptors, leaching pits, sand-oil/oil-water interceptors, septic tanks, water/sewage storage tanks, wetwells, fire cisterns, and other water and wastewater products.
