Artisan Precast Fencing Adds Elegant Touch to Community College Landscape
College of the Canyons combines three precast concrete barrier products to fulfill its fencing
Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) February 11, 2010 -- Artisan Precast, a leader in providing precast fencing systems,
completed installation of barrier fencing at the Canyon Country Education Center near Santa Clarita, California.
One of the unique features of its precast concrete fence system is its versatility to be installed quickly and
efficiently across any terrain. The fencing recently erected at the university which sits on 70 acres in Santa
Clarita’s Mint Canyon, provides a good example; the site topography is highly sloped at a steep grade that posed
challenges for Artisan’s installation team. However, the unmatched flexibility of the product allowed crews to
surmount those difficulties and meet the job’s demands on schedule.
Artisan worked with Joe Souza of Lundgren Management on the Canyon Country project, which was designed to
maximize the canyon’s natural open spaces. The solution chosen for the Education Center integrated precast
concrete barriers with structures already in place—illustrating one of the trademark capabilities of Artisan’s work.
The precast fencing panels are easily constructed at various heights up to 20’, and can form corners and fit next
to existing buildings in the landscape, creating a strikingly attractive line.
WoodCrete® 2-Rail, the company’s maintenance-free alternative to split-rail wood fencing, formed the basis for
the Canyon Country job; 1,864 LF of 3’ high 2-Rail was used. In addition, the system integrated 336 LF of 4’
WoodCrete® 3-Rail and 90 LF of 6’ regular WoodCrete®. All these products resemble the pattern and texture of
wood grain, with mitered fenceposts for the appearance of custom crafting; yet the precast concrete cannot warp,
sag, rot, or be destroyed by termites, and the integral color in the mix eliminates any need for repainting.
Artisan Precast also manufactures its p
