Verti-Crete – Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are the various heights available for Verti-Crete walls?
A: Hawk Precast manufactures walls in various heights from 4′ to 10′ tall as a standard. There are situations that require taller walls and they can be looked at and addressed on a case by case basis to determine if the Verti-Crete wall system is a viable option. Hawk Construction installed a 20’ sound wall next to railroad tracks in Sachse, TX in 2014.
Q: Do the panels come in various lengths?
A: No, all Verti-Crete panels are 12’ long. However, the panels are often cut to the appropriate length to fit the layout of the particular project.
Q: Are there any restrictions or requirements for the soil conditions?
A: This varies from site to site. If you have a soils report, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a site plan. Stamped engineered drawings are provided when needed.
Q: Can I only purchase material and install this myself?
A: Yes. Hawk Precast sells the material only as an option.
Q: Is there texture or a pattern on both sides?
A: Yes, all of our patterns are all textured on both sides.
Q: What is the distance or spacing between each pier?
A: The pier spacing is typically 13′ 1″ to 13′ 2″ center to center, column to column.
Q: How are the walls installed?
A: After the footings are set, the hollow core posts or columns are placed over the rebar to rest firmly on each concrete pier cap. The Verti-Crete precast concrete fence panels are then set into place to fit securely within the notches that are cast into the columns. After each section is square, plumb, and level, each column is then filled with concrete to secure the connection between the columns and the footing.
