Abstract:
After considerable investment in research and development, Verti-Crete developed an innovative mold-and-form system for precasting multiple walls in a vertical gang form. The result is a molded stone pattern on both sides of the wall and a production system that turns out more walls in less time and at a lower cost than traditional methods. Ideally suited to surround individual homes or businesses or to create an attractive entrance for parks, communities, and neighborhood associations, the panels can be scaled to meet a variety of project sizes and are engineered to meet the building codes of almost any area.
