Cresco Concrete Products Completes Introduction of Innovative Green Building
Cresco Concrete Products now offers a complete line of precast fence systems featuring
lightweight panels and rails. The company also manufactures Liteblok™, a lightweight,
interlocking, dry stacked green building block.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 6, 2009 -- With the launch of its Ranch and Rail concrete fence system, Cresco
Concrete Products, LLC has completed its planned introduction of unique sustainable building products. Cresco
now offers a full line of precast fence options all featuring lightweight panels or rails.
The lightweight fence components are manufactured using a unique proprietary aeration process that fills
concrete with tiny air pockets reducing its weight by almost half. According to Neil Rock, President of Cresco
Concrete Products, "Our fence system can typically be installed with as few as two people eliminating the need
for heavy equipment such as cranes and forklifts. Installation in confined or sensitive landscaped spaces is easily
facilitated. Our lightweight components now make it easy for professionals and the do-it-yourself crowd to erect
concrete fences." Lower freight costs and greater quantities per truckload are now possible. The unique
manufacturing process and reduced material usage also translate into lower prices for consumers.
The US Green Building Council, in an attempt to develop a system of green building standards has developed the
LEED® guidelines. LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a point based system whereby
a structure is awarded points for each part of the building that is environmentally sustainable. Construction
professionals can accumulate points through the specification of Cresco™ Precast Fence Systems.
"Manufactured using recycled concrete as aggregate, our fence systems generate minimal jobsite waste, use less
cement that competing systems, is long lasting, and free of ozone depleting, toxic or hazardous materials," stated
