The wet cast architectural precast opens up options to create different finishes.
See in this video, precast concrete column with distressed finish. The wet casting process used with architectural precast concrete and GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete – also known as light weight concrete) allows for variety of finishes on the product.
The column here is in natural grey color. Mesa Precast has 18 standard colors to choose from for column colors. As required, the technology and manufacturing process allows for matching custom colors as well.
See in this video, the process of making a GFRC column. With specialized admixture sprayed and packed with the mold, GFRC column is hollow with ¾” thickness. The glass fibers in the spray mix still gives columns required strength.
Following video shows a GFRC column base being manufactured. The design of GFRC columns is modular creating flexibility to combine different column sizes with column base as well as column capitals.
With custom molds and unique manufacturing technology, Mesa Precast can design and manufacture custom columns of desired size and aesthetic appeal. Choose from the standard 18 colors of Mesa product lines, or talk to use to get the custom color and finish of your choice.
