The result is an unusually lightweight concrete fence. In fact, each 6 x 9-foot panel weighs just 270 pounds as compared to a solid concrete panel of equal size that weighs 2,500 pounds. Highly technical testing results show that these panels can support over one and a half tons of water placed on their free spanning face, or the equivalent of a 140 mph wind load.
The outer shell is made of high-performance fiber reinforced concrete, which gives you a strong, durable fence. and by combining the reinforced concrete with the structural foam core, you get a fence system that is much easier to install. A three man crew can install 300 to 600 linear feet per day, by hand, compared to a much larger crew that must rely on the use of cranes and heavy construction equipment to install a solid concrete fence.
RhinoRock Concrete Fence panels are much more affordable than you would think. Each panel is produced through a unique manufacturing process that creates a fence panel that is 90% lighter than a traditional concrete fence. Lower weight means lower production, installation, and shipping costs, and of course makes it easier to install. The cost of a RhinoRock Concrete Fence panel is considerably less than the traditional solid heavyweight panels, making it a great choice for those looking for a stone fence on a budget. After all, concrete fencing is the only way to get the beauty of stone, the weatheribility that contractors demand, and the low price that homeowners want.
All panels ship natural concrete color. Panels are stained on site to create specific color combinations.
RhinoRock now uses a steel post insert that goes into the ground that the column sets are attached to by screws for added stability
