Classic Split-Rail Fences With The Strength of Concrete

Property owners have traditionally relied on rail fencing to protect everything from livestock and horses to valuable equipment. Superior Rail™ builds on that versatility with the superior strength, resistance & value of precast concrete. Superior Rail™ has a rich, natural-looking wood texture without the fast deterioration & aging of real wood from the elements, termites, and other pests. Since it’s made of durable, steel-reinforced precast concrete, you get decades of maintenance-free enjoyment. Whether for a barn, animal enclosure, or boundary, Superior Rail™ adds enduring value to any property. Concrete never looked so good.

FEATURES

  • Double-sided wood texture
  • Little-to-no maintenance
  • Heights from 3’ to 4’ to 5’ (for 2, 3, or 4 rail fences)
  • Engineered & built to spec
  • Posts are set 8’ on-center
  • No heavy equipment required
  • Horizontal alignment
  • Integral color
  • Decades of enduring appeal & beauty

ELEGANCE The eye-catching look of natural wood, with its permanent color, is more elegant than pipe fencing or any traditional materials. Superior Rail™ will be just as attractive decades after the first day it appears on your land.

DURABILITY Superior Rail™ is a unique and reliable precast concrete, steel reinforced, post and rail system. Manufactured with integral color, steel bars in the posts and rails, plus fiber reinforced high strength concrete. It all adds up to a concrete fence that outlasts traditional wood and wire, vinyl plastic, and metal pipe fencing. Our Superior Rail™ fencing is impervious to insects, fire resistant and will keep livestock secure.

VERSATILTY Superior Rail™ provides versatility offering 2-Rail (3 feet high) concrete fence that will border a trail, driveway entrance, or a golf course. It can also divide one section of your land from another. The 3-Rail (4 feet high) fence provides a safe and secure surrounding for horses, cattle and other livestock. The 4-Rail (5 feet high) will provide additional security for horses and cattle, plus additional prominence to larger estates and ranches.

From Our CEO

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and that you are looking forward to the Holidays and New Year.

Now that 2022 is upon us we have a lot to be thankful for at Superior Concrete Products. We continue to have a solid amount of business coming in the door, and a strong backlog. Our sales staff stays busy with bidding new work and coordinating the logistics of new contracts and schedules.

Our construction teams have the challenge of meeting our customer’s demands and balancing their needs with our production capabilities, and of course, Mother Nature’s weather conditions that we face this time of year. This requires more creative ideas and thinking in order to keep our production at a level that will keep us profitable… so kudos to our installation crews!

The manufacturing group is staying focused and continues to work hard at making sure we maintain our standards, improve our processes and the quality of our products. We recently have received our annual audit from NPCA for our plant. Congratulations are in order for Prasanth and his team for assuring great quality control.

On the accounting side of the business, we plan to see improved reporting with new software called ODOO. The ultimate goal is to have timely reporting that will provide management with good information and data to guide us through 2022.

We thank all our customers for their trust in us and support, to select Superior as their screening wall and retaining wall vendor and contractor. A winning combination that continues to pay off for all of our customers. I am optimistic that we will have plenty of opportunities to forge new relationships and align ourselves with new customers. We continue to develop new products and great services that our customers can count on to perform well and meet timelines.

Superior has a proven track record as well as a great group of people. This coupled with great customers, will continue to propel us forward. We will stay positive and focused on customer satisfaction, so that we earn your trust and business.

With our humble thanks!

Todd Sternfeld – CEO
