PallisadeAN pigment gives a cheerful look to this palisade fencing at the Ligbron Academy of Technology at Ermelo, Mpumalanga. The 600m-long fence shows to advantage the slimmer, more elegant look of a new version of the well-known Technicrete concrete fencing system. Improved appearance has been achieved without any reduction in its integral strength and security.


PallisadeEach 2m-long palisade panel now has eight palings – instead of the previous nine – and the concrete beam cross-sections of the panel have also been reduced in weight to make the fitting of the palings to the beams easier. Simplifying matters still further, standard-sized bolts available “off-the-shelf” are used to anchor the palings to the beams.
