T.B. Penick's Wall Systems
Lithocrete Sedimentary Wall Systems
A Lithocrete Sedimentary Wall is constructed in a method that replicates a wall constructed by nature. Sedimentary rocks form layers of sediment accumulation in various depositional environments.
These layers, or strata, are probably the single most characteristic feature of sedimentary rocks. A Lithocrete Sedimentary Wall also has the plurality of discrete layers, with each layer constructed of concrete and a decorative additive. Rocks, seashells, pinecones, and prairie grass are just a few of the items we embed into the walls to bring about their distinctive look and texture of life.
Perfect for beach promenades and rustic courtyards, the Sedimentary Wall System is an ideal way to introduce true originality within a functional wall in a natural surrounding.
T.B. Penick's Penickrete Wall system
The T.B. Penick Penickcrete System is a polymer modified Portland cement based system used to give any wall a decorative finish no matter if it’s preexisting or new construction. Interior or exterior, Penickcrete can be used on any shape or size wall, including cantilevered or battered, and is perfect for hiding imperfections typically found in a cast-in-place wall such as tie holes, voids, honeycombs, and pour lines. It also offers the flexibility of achieving an architecturally aesthetic look without the need to strip the wall’s form prematurely.
What’s more, Penickcrete can either be smooth or it can be used to achieve a Quarry Stone Finish. It can be integrally colored and is also compatible with T.B. Penick’s Concrete Coloration Systems. The Penickcrete system can even be used to simulate a white concrete finish without the high cost associated with integral white cement.
Form Liner Walls
Whether you are creating a River rock, Brick, Limestone, etc., the Form Liner Walls system is highly durable, very cost effective and provides patterns and textures that replicate natural stone. The Form Liner Walls process can be used on pre-cast or cast-in-place systems.
A Shotcrete Wall System saves the cost of using poured-in-place concrete formwork, thus solving traditional forming systems (labor and material expense).
Used for over 75 years, different types of Shotcrete finishes can be obtained - from "as shot" (natural or gun finish), scratched, troweled or smoothed, carved, sedimentary finish, exposed, and reactive coloration. Shotcrete allows for substantial savings in both form costs and construction time. Since it does not require the labor and materials of poured-in-place formwork, there is a significant schedule gain.
