ACP precast concrete security wall system is a fast track construction method for security walling to warehouse and retail environments.
Prestressed concrete panels span between building columns to produce foundation free walls
Alternatively the precast units may be used vertically to produce independent security walls or compartments within clear spans of buildings independent of the main building structure.
The concrete panels can be configured to suit wall height requirements. Precast concrete floor and roof sections can be combined to provide a complete precast security system.
The precast concrete security wall system is designed to provide rapid construction for containment walls in many types of building. Precast concrete is the ideal solution for those looking for Modern Methods of Construction of secure buildings. The extremely robust nature of prestressed concrete wall panels make these units resistant to attack.
Made to Measure - The wall panels are manufactured in controlled environment factory conditions from engineering grade concrete and delivered to site made to measure. They can then be quickly erected to provide high quality precast concrete security walls. The precast solution eliminates wet trades and gives rapid site security. Installation progress for the precast concrete panel system is almost independent of weather conditions.
High Strength - The prestressed concrete panels offer excellent resistance to vehicular impact and physical attack within a relatively slim cross section. The smooth internal finish is suitable for painting with little or no preparation. The density and durability of the precast concrete panels gives long maintenance free service for the walls.
Relocatable - Precast concrete horizontal panels can be dismantled and relocated to provide alterations to sub divisions and to facilitate extension to the structure.
Dado walls to the perimeter of warehousing and retail stores can be combined with full height concrete security walls for highly vulnerable areas. External wall units can also be designed to impede "ram raid" attack.
Precast roof panels can also be incorporated to provide a secure vault resistant to sustained attack.
Site security can be provided by the use of free standing precast security walling in place of traditional fencing materials. Incorporation of cast fixing sockets enables security wire and lighting to be easily fitted to the walls. Prestressed horizontal and vertical wall panel systems are equally suited this application.
The precast concrete wall panels are available in three standard thicknesses. Units are manufactured in high-grade 60N/mm concrete. The panels are available in many heights the most commonly used are 0.6m, 0.7m, 1.0m, 1.2m, and 1.5m. The units have secure interlocking tongue and groove joints enabling walls to be built up with different precast wall units.
As an alternative, ACP offer the R35 System wall panels. These are large format concrete wall panels up to 3.0m high x 10m long in a single section. This system speeds installation and gives the ultimate flexability in choise of wall heights and spans.
The installation service is part of the complete design and build precast package. Installation of the concrete panels is quick and simple and is usually carried out using a telehandler in place to more expensive cranage. This reduces installation costs and brings added flexibility to the progress on work on site.
Alternatively help and advice for safe handling and installation of precast units can be supplied as documentation or as a supervisory site visit.
