Urban Stonehenge, Inc. Fencing System

Location:

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Urban Stonehenge, Inc. wanted to produce dual-sided thin wall architectural cast fencing similar to those that surround upscale homes and businesses throughout the southern United States. The goal was to design a cast fencing system for similar applications in Canada, such as infrastructure renewal, commercial development, new housing sub-divisions and home landscaping. However, an alternative solution to steel rebar and steel fibers was needed to withstand Canada’s extreme environmental conditions.

Tuf-Strand SF reinforcing fibers, engineered specifically for thin wall pre-cast applications, were utilized in combination with FRP synthetic rebar to create a structure that followed Ontario Building code.
