Why is precast perfect for underground or buried infrastructure?
Our world is full of concrete, but we often don’t think about how amazing its many uses are. When it comes to precast concrete, it can be used in all sorts of ways above ground in structures (retaining walls, for example) and in other architecture. However, one of the best uses it has is for underground purposes.
The infrastructure and strength that are required underneath us are significant, and precast concrete is up to the challenge. High-quality underground precast concrete products, manufactured in controlled environments, are the perfect fit for buried infrastructure, concrete structures, and more.
Sewer systems, subway systems, underground utility vaults, catch basins, manholes, tunnels, and stormwater runoff drains all utilize precast concrete. In our busy modern lifestyles, we rely on these things to keep things running smoothly around us.
When precast concrete is used, the engineers designing large underground systems like these have control over the quality, shape, and size of each piece. They can work with production to ensure it is efficiently made and used exactly as specified to ensure it can live up to its reputation for maximum durability.
Of course, there is the easy installation and cost-effectiveness, since we produce precast concrete forms at our facility and then deliver them to the job site ready for installation.
Precast concrete is built to last for decades, boasting an average lifespan of 50 years to 100 years. Not to mention, it is fire and rodent resistant and is crafted to ensure water tightness, making it resistant to floods.
In addition, it can be manufactured to come in virtually any color and finish. So whatever a project requires underground, it can likely be accommodated.
If you are planning a storm water system, basin, or another project underground that requires concrete, precast concrete is a necessity. Not sure what you need specifically — or how much?
