New Boundary Wall Panel of 2 ft height

Hello Business Partner

As we crack into March we find ourselves better equipped with facing Covid-19. Hope seems to emerge with the vaccination process being rolled out. Our environment continues to rapidly evolve creating a larger need for innovation.

Always innovating and finding ways to increase productivity, KK Manhole and Gratings Co Pvt Ltd has been the home of innovative and quality solutions for the construction industry since 1984.

Introducing our NEW Boundary Wall Panel with Texture on Both Sides!

We have recently added to our prefabricated boundary wall options by providing two feet panels with textured finish on both sides. One face of the panel carries our traditional brick pattern while the second face of the panel has a chequered finish. Also we can incorporate your logo on the wall. Additionally, the pole and panel combination can also be used for constructing low cost single storey housing.

Born out of response from customer demands the KK wall panels are tested not to deteriorate with time and are low maintenance

Boundary wall and Lighting roled into one…

KK's Boundary Wall with Light Fixture..

We are pleased to bring to your attention a unique boundary wall project we have been involved with. Shown is a picture of this wall of 4ft above ground height with provision for installing light fixtures. The columns used in the boundary wall have a mild steel pipe at the top for attaching a light fixture and a plastic conduit running along the length through which electrical wires can be introduced. The column also incorporates an electrical box through which the wire can accessed for future repair and maintenance.

Are prestressed boundary walls strong?

Increasingly, some companies in India have been promoting and selling a prestressed boundary wall solution in India. They claim that they use 3-4 HT strands to prestress the panels. We became suspicious of this claim because common sense would dictate that these thin panels would bend under the prestressing forces. We decided to investigate by procuring prestressed panels and subjecting them to load tests in comparison to our KK RCC boundary wall system.

In order to test the load bearing capacity of the panels we made a simple test in which we simply supported the panel on both ends and applied a static load in the center by placing known weights (in this case 30 kg concrete kerb stones). The prestressed panels failed at a load of 90 kg while our KK RCC panels were able to take 180 kgs till development of a crack. Shown are pictures of these tests.

This test unambiguously demonstrates that the prestress panel is significantly weaker than our KK RCC panel. One would conclude that the prestressing is non-existant.

Some pictures from an on-going boundary wall project near Chandigarh

We are happy to share some recent snaps from a boundary wall project near Chandigarh. On this project we are supplying our 8ft high boundary wall system with 50 mm thick panels. Two panels have been customized with the logo/branding of the client. The boundary wall is being erected aroung a residential development. The total span of the wall is expected to be 1 km.

Precast Boundary wall

Introducing a stronger precast boundary wall

We have added a larger cross-section pole to our precast boundary wall offering for applications which require higher load bearing capacity. The new pole is 200mm x 200 mm in cross-section and comes in heights of 3 meter or 2.4 meters. Along with a suitably designed in-situ foundation the new pole will allow the precast boundary wall to carry earth loads effectively.

On your next boundary wall project, if you have a retaining wall requirement think about specifying the new pole along with our 70 mm thick panels.

New Design of Boundary Wall

We have recently introduced a new design for the boundary wall. This new design consists of a pattern consisting of diagonal lines. You can see a picture below of what the design looks like when put together.

Case Study – Precast Wall for a Residential Development

We are supplying and installing 7 ft high precast concrete boundary wall for a residential project located in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan. The total length of the boundary wall is 1.75 KMs.
The wall is being constructed from 8 ft high poles which are being erected in the ground up to a depth of 2 ft. Between adjacent poles we are inserting 40 mm thick wall slabs to bring the above ground height to 7 ft. The middle panel of the wall has been customized with an engraving of the builders initials.
The total project will be completed in under 5 months.

Case Study: Boundary wall for residential complex

We are supplying boundary wall components for construction of a 10 ft above natural ground level boundary wall. The client required to lift the wall by upto 3 feet above natural ground level so as to leave room for filling of soil at a later stage. To accomplish this, the boundary wall poles are embedded in a PCC footing that is being cast on site.
