Precast concrete elements with the elegance of a natural stone wall. During the production process the precast concrete walls are clad with natural stone, eliminating the need for in-situ cladding or brickwork. The installation process is immensely accelerated; highly favourable for a construction project.
There is a wide range of possible applications: retaining walls, slope reinforcement, free-standing noise barrier, wind blockers and privacy screens. The aesthetics of pure natural stone walls combined with the stability of a precast concrete wall, provide a cost effective and very stable final product.
Almost any frost-resistant natural stone can be used for the Starwalls. The criteria is that the material must be resistant to corrosion from salts used for de-icing, and adverse weather conditions. The natural stones are mainly obtained from local quarries and can be shaped using any desired stonemasonry process. During the formwork process, stones are firmly fixed and enclosed by the concrete. Subsequent grouting of joints ensures a natural appearance. Each side of the wall can be covered, but it is advisable to only cover visible areas to save resources and minimise costs. The natural stone not only ensures an aesthetic integration into the existing landscape, but also protects the structure from environmental factors.
CONCRETE SURFACE DESIGN
Starwalls can be constructed without stone cladding. The bare concrete walls are then available in different textures and finishes.
– One or two-sided surface finishing
– Natural stone from regional quarries
– Customised mosaics and inlays are possible
– Exposed concrete finished in a matrix pattern or a coloured glaze
