Superior Concrete Products, a North-Texas-based manufacturer of precast concrete fence and barrier products, is launching a revolutionary new product – the Superior Board-on-Board™ concrete fence.
A pioneering leader in the precast concrete fence industry, Todd Sternfeld, owner and CEO, is introducing another industry-first – a product that duplicates the grain and appearance of popular cedar board-on-board wood fencing.
“Early in my career, I realized the frustration my customers felt as they struggled to maintain, repair and replace fences that deteriorated after a few years of service. The search for a better fence led me to precast concrete. During the past 29 years, the Superior Concrete Products team has created a number of concrete fences in a variety of sizes, finishes and colors. And, our latest product innovation is the board-on-board precast concrete fence, which was cast directly from rough-hewn cedar fence planks,” said Sternfeld. “This fence looks and feels much like wood, and is unparalleled for its beauty, strength, and ability to outlast any other decorative barrier product in the market today.”
One of the first installations of this ground-breaking new product is in North Texas. A homeowner who was tired of ongoing maintenance issues with his wood fence was looking for a permanent fence solution.
“Wood fences may look good while they are new, but no one tells you how much time to takes hammering nails and inserting screws to maintain the appearance of the fence over time,” said William Hennington. “Spending so much time on fence repairs is no way to spend a weekend, so I started researching alternative materials for the privacy fence surrounding my new home. I discovered a different kind of fence material – concrete. Since the Superior Concrete Products corporate office was close by, I stopped in to look at product samples and meet the company’s owner – Todd Sternfeld. The look and design of the product combined with the attentive service I received from the Superior Concrete Products team convinced me that purchasing a board-on-board concrete fence was a good investment for my new home.”
“Now that it is installed, I absolutely adore my new fence! It looks exactly like a cedar board-on-board fence, and the fence is so solid and strong that I have no doubt it will last a lifetime. Better yet, it requires no maintenance. To test the reaction of my friends I invited a few over to look at my new concrete fence. They couldn’t believe it wasn’t real wood. Some were so stunned they had to actually touch the fence to be convinced that it is made of concrete instead of cedar,” Hennington continued.
Since 1986, Superior Concrete Products has specialized in developing fence and barrier products for home and business owners that are as good-looking as they are strong, and easy to construct. Composed of a proprietary post and panel system, Superior Concrete fences are impervious to rot, insects and rust. In addition, they are also designed to flex during adverse weather conditions and ground movement without failing – effectively withstanding hurricane-force winds and earthquakes.
Available in a range of sizes, finishes and colors, Superior Concrete Products currently manufactures precast fences that duplicate the look of brick, stacked stone, and stucco. In addition to Superior Board-on-Board, the company also makes split rail fencing and other concrete products in a wood finish. And, as with all Super Concrete Products fences, each one can be customized to compliment any décor.
In addition to Superior Board-on-Board, the company has also developed another new product enhancement – Superior Ballistics, a proprietary membrane that makes the company’s strong fences even more powerful. Targeting customers that need a high level of security, Superior Ballistics can be manufactured into the board-on-board fence or any of the company’s other solid fence panels. Once the barrier is embedded, the fence becomes durable enough to withstand the impact of high-caliber ammunition. Most importantly, a ballistics-reinforced fence is virtually identical to all of the company’s other fence products.
