One of the things that make TerraCast® products so advantageous over other products is that it’s very lightweight for installation.
Why is that so important?
It means that TerraCast® products, planters and lampposts, are 50%-90% lighter to ship than a similar piece made of fiberglass, clay or stone. That translates into savings on logistics, transport, handling and installation.
A stone or clay product is very heavy and more difficult to handle. It requires more padding and packing, and there’s still a chance it will be damaged during transit. A damage product costs much more when returning and exchanging it, than just the shipping. In addition, rescheduling a construction crew for installation can be quite costly.
TerraCast®’s products are a fraction of the weight of stone or clay, so our pieces are not difficult for the shipping crews to work with. There’s no need to hire secondary crews and rent heavy equipment and it’s virtually indestructible. Unlike stone or clay, the chances that a TerraCast® product would arrive at your site with cracks and damage from shipping and handling are slim to none.
