The ACP precast concrete recycling bunker wall system is a fast track construction method for storage and separation of recycling materials and composting waste products.
The precast concrete bunker wall system is designed to provide rapid construction of single or multi bunker walls in new or existing buildings. Precast concrete is the ideal solution for those looking for Modern Methods of Construction. The extreme robust nature of prestressed concrete wall panels makes these units resistant to damage from constant out-loading and easy to clean between batches.
Walls formed with vertical prestressed panels are ideal for the construction of bunker division walls giving a perfect 90º wall to floor joint. This eliminates potential damage points between the loading shovel and the precast concrete wall commonly associated with traditional "L" and "T" section wall panels. Durability reduces the risk of contamination of the stored material with wall fragments. This system is also ideal for the rapid cleaning of individual bunkers between compost batches.
The precast wall panels are available in three standard thicknesses to suit anticipated loadings and impacts. Units are manufactured in high grade 60N/mm prestressed concrete.
The horizontal precast concrete wall units are available in a range of heights, the most commonly used being 1m, 1.2m and 1.5m. The required height of the wall can usually be achieved by using a combination of sizes together. Panel joints are sealed with high performance polyurethane mastic compound giving long life weatherproof joints. This also provides a smooth easy clean surface eliminating potential dust traps.
Vertical cantilever precast concrete wall panels are available in heights up to 4m depending on the anticipated loadings.
The installation service is part of the complete design and building precast package. Installation of the concrete panels is quick and simple and is usually carried out using a telehandler in place of more expensive cranage. This cuts installation costs and brings added flexibility to the progress of work on site.
