Jan. 12, 2013 - PRLog -- Cresco Concrete Products, LLC has introduced a new line of equipment pads produced from its innovative cellular concrete technology.  Cellular concrete is made by introducing a non-toxic chemical foaming agent into a regular concrete mix leaving numerous discrete air pockets within the mix.  Equipment pads are designed to support outdoor equipment.  They keep equipment from sliding, transfer weight evenly to the soil or gravel below and prevent standing water from forming below the equipment.

Applications for our lightweight equipment pads include the following:

Air conditioners
Gas bottles
Hot water heaters
Pool equipment
Pump and filter equipment

Alongside its lightweight concrete pads, Cresco also offers conventional dense concrete pads that are also suitable for use as pavers and pier decks.  Standard pad sizes range from 24” by 24” to 36” by 36”.  Pad thicknesses range from 2” to 2.5” and top surfaces are offered in textures of smooth and pebble.  Additional sizes, thicknesses and textures will be added over time.

The benefits of these new steel reinforced lightweight concrete pads include the following:

Half the weight of conventional concrete pads resulting in easier handling and lower transportation costs
Strong and durable resisting UV and extreme temperatures
Aerated structure is freeze thaw resistant
Resistant to attack by termites
Will not harbor insects and vermin
Resistant to weed wacker damage
Drills easily and bolts readily
Resistant to chemical attack and fire
More sound and vibration absorbing than conventional concrete pads
Lighter weight pads are less likely to sink into the soil over time
Textured top surface keeps equipment above any standing water reducing the possibility of equipment rusting
A green building material produced with less cement than traditional concrete pads
Meets municipal code requirements
