Living near the city or highways is very convenient, especially in a growing city such as Orlando. Precast concrete is an aesthetically pleasing and affordable way to reduce noise.
In fact, precast concrete walls have quickly become the leading choice for highway barriers. This advanced technology has led the way to realistic natural rock with quality details, seamless finish on both the front and back, including around columns.
With a variety of warm colors and textures to choose from, the quality and durable precast concrete walls don’t need refinishing and stay beautiful for decades.
Adjoining properties can also enjoy the benefits with the double sided design feature.
“Precast concrete highway barriers are the go-to product for vehicular and construction worker safety, in addition to building security. Precast concrete barriers have the unique ability to not only realign stray vehicles but also reduce their speed. Upon impact, precast concrete barriers partially lift the stray vehicle off the pavement, which decreases the lateral resistance force between tires and pavement. Precast barriers can be installed in permanent or temporary applications.” according to the National Precast Concrete Association.
