Fencing & Access Control

"So- called 'undesirables' are not the problem. It is the measures taken to combat them that is the problem... The best way to handle the problem of undesirebles is to make the place attractive to everyone else." -- William H. Whyte

  • Innovative Adjustable Bison ScrewJack Pedestals
  •   Adjustable Bison ScrewJack Pedestals support pavers, tiles or natural stone for roof and plaza decks. Precise spacer tabs promote deck drainage and the simple screw-to-adjust height setting assures a perfectly straight, perfectly level deck, every time.

    Bisons are made of high density polypropylene and each one will support 1,000 lbs. with a factor of safety (FOS) of 2. Their broad footprint allows them to be placed on the waterproofing without damaging the membrane and they are impervious to freeze-thaw cycles. With a fast turn of the pedestal base to adjust height and simple accessories to compensate for slope, Bison saves on installation labor.

    Downloadable CAD details you can drop directly into your drawings are available at Samples and literature can be ordered directly from our website. We'll even assist with take-offs!

  • Create Elegant Outdoor Spaces with VERSA-LOK
  •    Once upon a time, "backyard improvements" meant pouring a concrete slab patio, stacking some treated landscape timbers and planting planting a few perennials around the perimeter. No longer.
    Today, using VERSA-LOK Retaining Wall Systems, backyard improvements include anything from curvaceous walls and stately columns to tiered gardens and graceful stairways.

    Random-pattern walls such as VERSA-LOK Mosaic, for example, achieve a handcrafted, natural-stone appearance that is at least as durable as and more affordable than natural stone-and it's more flexible. Used in concert with paving stone patios and walkways, VERSA-LOK retaining wall systems make it possible to create just about any kind of living space outdoors.

    Unlike some segmental retaining wall systems, VERSA- LOK has no hollow cores to fill. This makes VERSA-LOK more structurally sound and easily adaptable for maximum design flexibility.

    The hottest trend with landscape architects seeking a more natural appearance is VERSA-LOK Weathered, with its aged, vintage look. It's an ideal solution for historic preservation or renovation projects in which existing stone must be matched-especially if you haven't got a couple hundred years to wait.

    For more information on the many ways VERSA-LOK Retaining Wall Systems can enhance your landscape design, contact VERSA-LOK at 800-770-4525 or www.versa-
