StoneTree® Precast Fence System Comparison

Comparison Between StoneTree® From AFTEC
& Traditional Precast Fencing Systems

Discover StoneTree® From AFTEC Fence System’s Advantage Over Traditional Precast Fence Walls

 StoneTree® Concrete Fence Systems logo 
Product TypeStoneTree® From AFTECTraditional Large Panel System
WallOnly ONE forming system needed – panel and column cast togetherTwo different forming systems required to cast columns and panels separately
Wall Columns18″ square5” up to 20” Square columns
TexturesHighly defined and very realistic replicas of various types of stoneLess defined and not as much design variety
Length of Wall Sections15 Feet long/4.5 Meters and requires less footings (40 Footings for a 600 foot/183 meter fenceline)10 to 12 feet long including the column and panel – require more footings (50 to 60 footings for a 600 foot/183 meter fenceline)
Column CapsCaps are made with an inset on the underside allowing caps to fit over the top of the column – no grout requiredCaps used with the traditional systems generally have a flat underside and rest on top of the column requiring grout for proper appearance.
Footing TypeThick steel I-beam embedded into a pier-type rigid concrete footing to support the wall sectionsUse grouted cell connection with rebar protruding up from footing into column – requires each column to be grouted in place to support wall system
Installation – SpeedOnce footings are constructed, walls are capable of being installed in half
the time as traditional wall systems
After the footings are constructed, each panel and each column are set individually, taking twice as long
Installation – SafetyNo shoring or bracing, each wall immediately secured and self aligned when it is installed surrounding the structural supportWalls must be shored and braced to prevent from falling over until the column grouting process is completed, components require re-adjustment as installed
Removing or Replacing SectionsEach section can be removed without damaging the footing – creating an opening of 15 feet/4.5 Meters for access – advantageous for sites with sensitive equipmentOnly the panel section can be removed as the column is connected by a grouted cell connection to the footing. This only provides an opening of 11ft/3.35M for access.
Damage ReplacementFaster and easier replacement due to rigid footing design with support beam –
the section is lifted out and a new one dropped in with little additional work
Requires the entire column, panel and footing to be removed and each piece needs to be completely reinstalled
