Superior Ballistics doubles the strength of Superior Concrete Products’ (SCP) solid barrier and fence panels, making them impervious to close-range fire from high-caliber ammunition. It is a product enhancement that strengthens and reinforces fencing for use at electric and gas utility substations, local government facilities and other security-minded public agencies.

The product is made of reinforced precast concrete. It protects vulnerable equipment, infrastructure projects and personnel from sniper bullets.

“With recent attacks on electrical substations in California and Arizona, protecting the nation’s power grid is a top priority for utility executives and government officials,” says Todd Sternfeld, founder and president of Superior Concrete Products. “And, at SCP, we recognized that the time had come to develop a new type of security fencing – one that fit seamlessly into the environment, yet engineered and designed to withstand the force of close-range fire arms without looking like a military bunker.”

The Superior Ballistics membrane hardens the precast concrete panels, making for a heavier, more bullet-resistant fence. Choose from custom finishes that take on the appearance of ledgestone, brick, or the deep wood-grain look of board-on-board or other traditional type of fencing textures.

The company’s ballistics-enhanced panel looks similar to the firm’s line of Superior Brick, Superior Cobblestone, Superior Stucco, or other solid fencing and barrier products.

Prior to launching Superior Ballistics, SCP subjected the new barrier to testing at a U.S.-based independent laboratory. Standing 30 feet from the test sample, an experienced testing technician fired a .308 Winchester caliber round from a high-powered rifle directly into a section of the reinforced Superior Fence panel. While the fence sustained damage, the bullet was unable to punch a hole through the fence — even at close range.

The product provides an affordable and safe option that can help utilities comply with the mandates issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, adds Sternfeld. “Utility companies across the country have chosen Superior Concrete Products to protect and screen electrical transformers because of the product’s strength, affordability and low-maintenance design.” The product can be customized to the exact size, color and texture needed by the customer.

Superior Concrete Products engineers, manufactures and installs precast concrete walls, fences, structures and other barrier systems for utilities, residential developments, golf courses and the farming/ranching industries throughout North America.

EULESS, Texas – Nov. 30, 2015 – Superior Concrete Products, a North-Texas-based manufacturer of precast concrete fence and barrier products, was selected by a Southlake homeowner to replace a wood fence that had seen better days. Richard Asprey and his wife Michaela were surprised when they realized their pricey wood fence was deteriorating and needed to be replaced with just over a decade of service. Replacing a fence every decade or so seemed like throwing away good money, so the homeowner started researching alternative fence materials. Spotting an attractive concrete fence in their neighborhood, the Aspreys reached out to the manufacturer, Todd Sternfeld the CEO and founder of Superior Concrete Products, to learn more about his products and services.

“While traditional fences look good when installed, the Texas heat, ground movement and weather deteriorates them quickly. It only takes a few years before home or business owners must start an endless cycle of patch and repair as rotting lumber, rust or cracking mortar erode the integrity of conventional fence materials. With precast concrete, you have all of the advantages of old-style fencing without any of the headaches,” said Sternfeld.

“Superior Concrete Products has been producing fences in a variety of sizes, finishes and colors for more than 29 years. The key advantage of precast concrete is that it is strong, and you can duplicate the look and feel of wood, brick, stucco, or stone, while manufacturing a product that is pleasing to the eye. For homeowners who are tired of spending their spare cash and weekends making repairs, a custom fence made of precast concrete will be the last fence you purchase for your property. I guarantee it,” he added.

After speaking with Sternfeld, the Aspreys selected a stately 8-foot-tall Superior Ledgestone™ fence and column system in White Portland precast concrete. “I’m from England, and it was surprising to learn how quickly the Texas climate and those brutally hot summers damaged our wood fence,” said homeowner Richard Asprey. “I like my home and wanted a permanent fence solution that offered privacy. And, the fence needed to be attractive, compliment the exterior of my home and yard, while being maintenance free. I couldn’t be more pleased with my new precast concrete ledgestone fence. The install went smoothly and the crew left my yard in shape for the new landscaping that was planted the following week.”

“Everything looks beautiful! And, now that the fence is installed, I like it so much that I’ve decided to order two additional fences for other properties that I own. The concrete looks like stacked ledgestone, but without the expense and mortar problems. Better yet, I will never have to pay for another repair or replace the fence – ever,” Asprey said.

Specializing in the manufacturing of precast fence and barrier products for home and business owners since 1986, Superior Concrete Products makes fences of various designs that are as good-looking as they are strong, and easy to construct. Composed of a proprietary post and panel system, Superior Concrete Products’ fences are designed to flex during adverse weather conditions and ground movement without failing – effectively withstanding hurricane-force winds and earthquakes. Impervious to damage from insects, rot and rust, all of the company’s fences can be customized by height, color and finish to compliment any décor.

For security-minded customers, the company has developed another new product enhancement – Superior Ballistics, a proprietary membrane that makes the company’s strong fences even more powerful. Targeting customers that need a high level of security, Superior Ballistics can be manufactured into Superior Ledgestone or any of the company’s other solid fence panels. Once the barrier is embedded, the fence becomes durable enough to withstand the impact of high-caliber ammunition. Most importantly, a ballistics-reinforced fence is virtually identical to all of the company’s other fence products.

In addition to fences, Superior Concrete Products offers a variety of other products and services. The company manufactures concrete columns, Recon™ retaining walls and precast buildings.

The company even installs security gates and systems that work with SCP fence products. “Good fences make for good neighbors, and all of our products are designed to be affordable, attractive and guaranteed to last a lifetime, which keeps you and your neighbors happy,” Sternfeld added.

EULESS, Texas – Nov. 5, 2015 – Superior Concrete Products, a North-Texas-based manufacturer of precast concrete fence and barrier products, is launching a revolutionary new product – the Superior Board-on-Board™ concrete fence. A pioneering leader in the precast concrete fence industry, Todd Sternfeld, owner and CEO, is introducing another industry-first – a product that duplicates the grain and appearance of popular cedar board-on-board wood fencing.

“Early in my career, I realized the frustration my customers felt as they struggled to maintain, repair and replace fences that deteriorated after a few years of service. The search for a better fence led me to precast concrete. During the past 29 years, the Superior Concrete Products team has created a number of concrete fences in a variety of sizes, finishes and colors. And, our latest product innovation is the board-on-board precast concrete fence, which was cast directly from rough-hewn cedar fence planks,” said Sternfeld. “This fence looks and feels much like wood, and is unparalleled for its beauty, strength, and ability to outlast any other decorative barrier product in the market today.”

One of the first installations of this ground-breaking new product is in North Texas. A homeowner who was tired of ongoing maintenance issues with his wood fence was looking for a permanent fence solution.

“Wood fences may look good while they are new, but no one tells you how much time to takes hammering nails and inserting screws to maintain the appearance of the fence over time,” said William Hennington. “Spending so much time on fence repairs is no way to spend a weekend, so I started researching alternative materials for the privacy fence surrounding my new home. I discovered a different kind of fence material – concrete. Since the Superior Concrete Products corporate office was close by, I stopped in to look at product samples and meet the company’s owner – Todd Sternfeld. The look and design of the product combined with the attentive service I received from the Superior Concrete Products team convinced me that purchasing a board-on-board concrete fence was a good investment for my new home.”

“Now that it is installed, I absolutely adore my new fence! It looks exactly like a cedar board-on-board fence, and the fence is so solid and strong that I have no doubt it will last a lifetime. Better yet, it requires no maintenance. To test the reaction of my friends I invited a few over to look at my new concrete fence. They couldn’t believe it wasn’t real wood. Some were so stunned they had to actually touch the fence to be convinced that it is made of concrete instead of cedar,” Hennington continued.

Since 1986, Superior Concrete Products has specialized in developing fence and barrier products for home and business owners that are as good-looking as they are strong, and easy to construct. Composed of a proprietary post and panel system, Superior Concrete fences are impervious to rot, insects and rust.

Available in a range of sizes, finishes and colors, Superior Concrete Products currently manufactures precast fences that duplicate the look of brick, stacked stone, and stucco. In addition to Superior Board-on-Board, the company also makes split rail fencing and other concrete products in a wood finish. And, as with all Super Concrete Products fences, each one can be customized to compliment any décor.

In addition to Superior Board-on-Board, the company has also developed another new product enhancement – Superior Ballistics, a proprietary membrane that makes the company’s strong fences even more powerful. Targeting customers that need a high level of security, Superior Ballistics can be manufactured into the board-on-board fence or any of the company’s other solid fence panels. Once the barrier is embedded, the fence becomes durable enough to withstand the impact of high-caliber ammunition.

precast buildings. Superior Concrete Products even installs security gates and systems in conjunction with their fence products. “We believe in providing superior products and superior service, and we design all of our products to be affordable, attractive and guaranteed to last a lifetime,” Sternfeld added.

EULESS, Texas – July 1, 2015 – Todd Sternfeld, CEO and owner of Superior Concrete Products (SCP), a North-Texas-based manufacturer of precast concrete fence and barrier products, has a soft heart. When his 18-year-old daughter Sydney mentioned the idea of starting an educational program at Diamond Ranch Academy to help homeless pets and small animals, Sternfeld promised to build a shelter and provide the precast concrete materials for the project.

“Diamond Ranch Academy has a wonderful program that pairs students with horses and other large animals,” said Sydney Sternfeld. “And, while I enjoy working with the barnyard animals, my own dog, a big yellow Labrador Retriever named Lucky, inspired me to serve others by caring for homeless pets. Starting this new educational program will give more students an opportunity to learn how to work with rescued pets and other small animals that had been living on the city streets.”

Launches Superior Ballistics Product Innovation

EULESS, Texas – Feb. 3, 2015 – Superior Concrete Products, a North-Texas-based manufacturer of precast concrete fence and barrier products, plans to exhibit at the World of Concrete Tradeshow in Las Vegas on Feb. 2-6, 2015. This is the 30th time the company has participated in the international tradeshow which features companies from around the globe that dominate the commercial concrete and masonry construction industry.

A pioneering leader in the precast concrete fence industry, Todd Sternfeld, owner and CEO along with his management team, will demonstrate how Superior Concrete Products (SCP) manufacturers and builds a Superior Fence.

“Aside from the strength and attractiveness of SCP’s precast concrete fence panels, our fences are also designed to be a quick and simple install. In fact, a three-man crew can easily complete the construction of a fence for the average homeowner in only 2 to 4 days,” Sternfeld added.

To showcase Superior Ballistics and the company’s other fence and barrier products, Superior Concrete Products will host two booths during the World of Concrete Tradeshow this year.
