Vist-A-Wall Two-Stage Precast Walls

AIL Two-Stage Precast Walls in high settlement waterfront application. AIL Vist-A-Walls (Two-Stage Precast Wall) construction detail shot.

Advantageous where excessive settlement is expected but precast panels are desired.

Vist-A-Wall Two-Stage Precast Walls provide strong advantages where poor foundations or soft soils and significant settlements are anticipated – but the aesthetics of precast panels are desired.

Prefabricated panels ensure quick delivery and easy attachment.

The wire wall is constructed first and sits until the target settlements are reached. Then, the precast panels are erected on their own leveling pad, spaced off the wall face and attached by a system of adjustable hooks and turnbuckles. The void is then filled with granular material or grout.
