Concrete gravel boards

Wet-cast steel-reinforced gravel boards are an essential component in modern fencing systems, offering both practical and aesthetic benefits. These boards are manufactured using a wet-cast process, which involves pouring a high-quality concrete mix into moulds and vibrating to remove air bubbles, allowing it to cure under controlled conditions. The addition of steel reinforcement rods within the concrete significantly enhances the strength and durability of the gravel boards.

Concrete gravel boards, plain, recessed, brick-faced, and rock-faced.

Benefits and Uses

Protection Against Moisture and Rot
One of the primary functions of wet-cast steel-reinforced gravel boards is to protect timber fence panels from moisture and rot. By elevating the fence panels off the ground, these boards prevent direct contact with soil and water, thereby extending the lifespan of the fencing.

Enhanced Stability and Support
The steel reinforcement within the concrete provides additional stability and support, ensuring that the fence remains upright and secure even in adverse weather conditions. This makes them particularly suitable for areas prone to heavy winds or rainfall.

Low Maintenance
These gravel boards require minimal maintenance compared to their wooden counterparts. They do not rot, warp, or become infested with pests, making them a long-lasting solution for fencing needs.

Aesthetic Appeal
Available in various designs and finishes, wet-cast steel-reinforced gravel boards can complement the overall look of your fencing. Whether you prefer a simple, plain design or a more decorative pattern, there are options to suit different aesthetic preferences

 Installation and Use

1. Preparation: Before installing the gravel boards, ensure that the ground is level and free from debris. This will provide a stable base for the boards.

2. Positioning: Place the gravel boards at the base of the fence line. They should be positioned horizontally between the fence posts.

3. Fixing: Secure the gravel boards to the fence posts using appropriate brackets or clips. The steel reinforcement within the boards ensures that they can be firmly fixed without the risk of cracking.

4. Alignment: Make sure the gravel boards are aligned correctly to provide a uniform base for the fence panels. This alignment is crucial for both the structural integrity and the appearance of the fence.

5. Installing Fence Panels: Once the gravel boards are in place, the timber fence panels can be installed on top. The panels should rest securely on the gravel boards, ensuring they are elevated above the ground.

Applications

Residential Fencing: Ideal for garden boundaries and privacy fences, offering both protection and aesthetic value.
Commercial Properties: Suitable for securing commercial premises with a durable and low-maintenance fencing solution.
Public Spaces: Used in parks, schools, and other public areas where robust and long-lasting fencing is required.
