The outer shell is made of high-performance fiber reinforced concrete, which gives you a strong, durable fence. Highly scientific 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.
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 affordable too. 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.
RhinoRock uses a steel post insert that goes into the ground that the column sets are attached to by screws for added stability
