Precast Concrete Columns and Beams

Croom Concrete designs, manufactures and erects a variety of standard Precast Concrete Columns and Beams, that combined with cattle slats, suspended passage ways and precast cubicle beds offers farmers and contractors a total precast solution.

Precast Concrete Columns by Croom Concrete are placed on a prepared floor of the concrete tank. The concrete columns support the beam, which in turn transfers the load of the slats to the walls and floor.  The height of the column can vary from project and the location inside tank.

The concrete columns are rounded to ease the flow of slurry making agitating and emptying faster. Tanks can be emptied from one point making the job faster and safer.

See below for some of the benefits of precast concrete columns by Croom Concrete.
