Solid Fence Benefits
 
Our new pressed concrete solid fence design is structurally stronger and cheaper than traditional brick fences. The key advantage is that the walls which join the piers do not require a foundation. This results in the following savings:
 
  • 30% cheaper than a traditional brick fence
  • 50% less excavation required (meaning 50% less wasted dirt)
  • 50% less concrete foundation required
  • 2x faster to erect
  • Atlas Columns Installation Service - Options
    The Atlas Columns service for solid fence installation allows you the flexibility to complete any stage of fence installation yourself. Alternatively, we can complete the entire process for you. If you do chose to DIY for any stage of fence installation, written instructions can be found on the bottom of this page or in our instructional video. The fence piers and Hebel panels are very heavy so we strongly suggest preparing the foundations to allow us to install them upon delivery. All necessary tools for DIY installation can be hired from us. After you have planned/designed your fence, ensure you obtain the required permit from your council.
    Please contact us for more details and quotes.

    Complete Installation Process
     
    1. Measure and prepare the surface.
    2. Excavate dirt (600x600x600mm) for pier foundation. No wall foundation is required.
    3. Pour the concrete into foundation.
    4. If the piers need to reach higher than the wall, install underlay with required thickness. See Installing Piers for more details.
    5. Fit the pier to the required position. For gate piers, fill with concrete to the top. For other piers fill to approximately 300-400mm.
    6. Apply the glue into the pier slot and fit the panel in the pier slot on pier foundation. Ensure the panel is level.
    7. Install the required number of panels using Hebel glue.
    8. Close (secure) panels with another pier and fill the gaps between panels and pier slots. (using Hebel glue)
     
     
    Installing Piers
     
    1. Once the concrete foundation is dry, drill a hole in the foundation and insert the starter bar. The starter bar is used for pier alignment.
    2. If the pier needs to be higher than the wall (higher than 1800mm), fix 2 tiles 40mm thick on the foundation using mortar. Ensure tiles are horizontally levelled.
    3. Sit the pier on the foundation and ensure it is levelled.
    4. Pour concrete into pier cavity up to 300-400mm high. For a gate pier fill with concrete to the top.
    5. Fit any required pier cap or cement sheet to the top of the pier using mortar.
