Featured Image

​Hilltop Concrete is proud to work with civil engineers all over Texas to help provide them with options for an attractive precast concrete fence product that will provide an undisputed level of security to their public works enhancement projects! Precast concrete fence applications are abundant and our precast fence systems have been utilized on almost every kind of public works project with success again and again. Hilltop Concrete’s precast concrete fence systems provide the solution they need, from park rail fences to police station security walls, to highway sound barriers. This versatility provides our civil engineering customers with multiple options! As a concrete fence contractor and manufacturer with over 20 years of experience, we understand the special challenges that come with working on publicly funded projects and our team is here to put that experience to work for you.
Strength and security are always a top concern for any civil engineer when working on a public works project. Since our systems are made of concrete, our engineers never have to worry about whether they have a quality-strength product on their project. We manufacture our concrete fence systems to a specified 5,000 PSI at 28 days and each component, including our concrete fence panels, contains rebar to provide additional strength that other fencing options cannot provide. This strength means a concrete fence is the superior fencing option for any public works project because it is made to stand up to the threat of deterioration and is not susceptible to termites and pests, abrasion or chemicals, rot, rust, UV rays, or inclement weather. Alternate fencing materials, such as wood, cannot offer these benefits and will ultimately lead to costly repairs and maintenance that civil engineers fight to prevent in the future.

Speaking of maintenance… Maintenance should never be an afterthought for a civil engineer when working on a public works project. After all, no one wants to allocate precious time and money to the maintenance of their new fence, so why would a civil engineer subject their customers to a fence system that requires a lot of future maintenance when a concrete fence system from Hilltop Concrete can offer them a system that is virtually maintenance-free? Each of our systems generally requires no more than a simple cleaning using a pressure washer to keep it looking as good as the day it was installed. In addition to being the longest-lasting, virtually maintenance-free fencing available, concrete fences are also the most cost-efficient option on the market. This is a significant advantage for our civil engineers when working with their public works customers and we understand the pressures associated with keeping costs down. Because all of our precast concrete fence components are manufactured before they arrive at the site, we are able to provide a turnkey product without having to waste man-hours waiting for concrete to cure onsite. This benefit, coupled with the speed and installation of our concrete fence systems, saves money by keeping material and labor costs to a minimum.

Whether a concrete fence is needed for security purposes, privacy, sound barriers or to provide a decorative impact, Hilltop Concrete offers a variety of designs with realistic textures to create a picturesque addition to any civil engineering and public works project. At Hilltop Concrete, we are proud of our concrete fence systems and the benefits they can provide for all of our customers!
