MANUAL

This is how you place your fence in concrete


Thank you...

… for choosing a concrete panel from BAJ-

Beton. Our ‘Origiwalls’ are of the highest quality

and last a long time. Especially when you place

and finish your concrete panel correctly.

In this manual we explain to you - step by step - how this

installation works. Flawless, level and colorful. This way your

fence will look its best.

Good luck with the installation... and then enjoy the oasis of

peace and privacy in your backyard.


This is how you place

your concrete fence.

Stabilization Processing

Stabilization is necessary to secure the posts in the ground:

1 For each starting post or corner post (90°) it is best to work with 3

bags of quick concrete (chemical composition of different

products), as these posts can use extra stability.

2 For the intermediate posts you can use broken concrete, available

in 25 kg bags at BAJ: mix 50 kg of this ecological and 100%

recycled concrete with 8 to 10 kg of cement to a homogeneous

mixture. This solution is 3 to 4 cheaper thanfast concrete and more

than strong enough to support our concrete posts anchor.


A

Height determination

3 Place the first post in the ground at the desired location with the

correct height. Then tip the stabilization into the hole around the

post. Fix the post by pressing firmly, e.g. with a wooden pestle.

(Pic. A)

4 At the end of the wall, place a profile (= wooden straight beam)

perpendicular to the ground and secure it with a strut support

board. (Pic. C)

B

5 Draw a line on the first post with a pencil at a height of 40 cm

(measured from the bottom of the groove).

(Pic. B)

ATTENTION: If you are working with a cover slat, you should

tension the bottom cord at 43 to 44cm so that the top plate

protrudes slightly above the post so that the recess at the bottom

of the cover slat fits nicely over the plate.

6

Use a spirit level or laser to transfer this height to the profile.

Attach a first cord at the marked mark dash. This way you can place

each bottom plate - quickly and correctly same height. (Pic. C)

Tip

For further installation, measure the entire length under the first cord. Check

whether the bottom of the first plate is at least a few centimeters into the ground

everywhere (certainly not above the base). Place the first cord higher or lower if

necessary.


D

Continuation of the installation

Attention!

These motifs have different placement

guidelines:

ELEGANT

• Without bow: place each plate with the

thickest side up

• With bow: place each plate with the thin

side up

LINEA

Where the plates are adjacent to each other

(on top of each other), a thick strip should

connect to a thin strip.

ROMAN DESIGN & MARSEILLE

Place each plate ‘alternately’. This way, the

large stones do not always return to the

same place in the panel.

1 Now that the bottom cord is stretched at the correct height, attach

a second cord to the post + profile. Do this at a height equal

to a multiple of 40 cm, e.g. 1.60 m or 2.00 m height.

(Pic. D)

2 The purpose of the second cord is to place the posts at the correct

height, but also to secure the posts laterally in a straight line in the

ground. Also check with this second cord whether the plates are on

a straight line.

3

4

Dig a hole for the next post 2 meters from the slot of the previous

post. The depth of the hole can be determined directly with the

bottom cord.

Ex. 95 cm Pole slots = 40 cm slot + 55 cm foot (Pic. D)

Tip

If the surface is very soft, it is best to place a stone or piece of clinker under the

post. This prevents it from sinking during installation.

Then place a tile/clinker very firmly at ± 30 cm & 1.70 m - measured

from the groove towards the next post - ± 38 cm below the bottom

cord. This tile ensures that the plates you place on top of each

other do not sink into the ground. (Pic. D) Now the plates can be

placed on top of each other.

5 After placing 3 - 4 plates on top of each other, place the next

post diagonally into the hole. Then push it against the

plates.(Pic. E) Align this pole along the sides with the 2

cords and place it at the correct height with the top cord.

(Pic. E)

6 Repeat actions 3 and 4 until the end of the closure.

7 When the wall is placed 3 to 4 plates high, slide the next

plates (if any) along the top of the post using a rack.

(Pic. F)

ATTENTION!

If necessary, remove burrs from the plates with a

shovel or grinding wheel.

Tip

Hang the top cord at eye level in multiples of 40cm

(= height of first plate). Draw a pencil line on each side of the post at the

same height as that of the top cord. This way you place each post at the

same height when installing. Only then secure the post with stabilization:

fill up to the bottom of the bottom plate with stabilization.



Get rid of

height differences

Adjusting the plates

(where appropriate)

8 If the site is not level, the wall can be placed at different

heights (stepped). You create this level difference by

grinding out the height of the stairs (e.g. 10 cm) on one side

of the bottom plate over a width of 4 cm. The plate thus

sinks 10 cm deeper than the previous element.

Tip

It is best to work with level differences of 10 cm or multiples thereof.

10 If you now look horizontally over the plates, the plates may

not be in a straight line. In that case, place a lever (e.g.

wooden bridge on its high side) under an element. This way

you can push the whole thing up on the side (as much as

necessary). If necessary, you can lower the element: you do

this by knocking down the stone on which the plates are

placed.

9 To make an upward staircase, grind the desired height (e.g.

10 cm) from the bottom plate from the previous element and

on the side where the increase is to be made.

- This way you can place the post higher than the previous

post. The next element is then automatically higher than the

previous element

ATTENTION!

Level each element!


Finish:

wedges and joints

11 To finish it off, wedge the plates into the post with the supplied

adjusting wedges. The keying is done along one side (particularly the

back).

12 Joint the panels with joint mortar or sealant. We have both a granular

and a smooth sealant in our sealants.Then remove the adjusting

wedges. (Pic. G)

Also joint or seal the panels in the same longitudinal direction

(horizontal) with the same joint mortar or sealant. (Pic. G) Bumps,

lumps and slightly damaged plates/piles may occur. You can always

repair these damages with joint mortar or sealant. After finishing and

treatment with resin (see next step), these damages are no longer

visible. With a motif on one side (= single-sided), only the motif side is

important. The rear is subordinate.

Tip

For the correct mortar ratio:

see packaging.

The correct ratio of the KIT:

Horizontal onlyl:

70ml / plate.

Horizontally and vertically:

1 tube / plate.

Resins

Has everything been carried out and has the mortar hardened

sufficiently? Then apply the resin/varnish layer after approximately

4-5 weeks according to the instructions.

(Pic. H)

14 Make sure the concrete material is dry and dust-free when

you start waxing it. When respraying, be sure to remove any

moss deposits. The ideal processing temperature is 18 °C

(min. 12 °C): the plates should not feel really cold.

Working with a porridge brush of ± 10cm wide and short hair is also

possible. In that case, shake the cans well and always empty the

entire can into a bucket. Immerse yourself deeply enough in the

product, otherwise you will be working with foam or air. Apply the

resin in at least 2 layers (and sufficiently thickly) and check for any

drips.

Tip

The materials used are cleaned with water. It is best to do this

immediately after finishing the work.

15 The resin is ready to use, so you do not need to dilute it.

Store the resin in a frost-free place and shake the cans well

and completely before use.

16 Now you are ready to apply the resin. You will get the best

results with an electric sprayer (available from BAJ-Beton) or

with a compressor:

• The sprayers should preferably have a spray nozzle with

a passage of 2.5 mm.

• When using a compressor, it is best not to use too much

air pressure. Otherwise you will spray too much next to

the plates and you may end up with too little product.

Tip

Before use, spray the gun with a layer of oil (e.g. penetrating oil). This

means that the resin will stick less quickly to the gun, and you can clean

the device more quickly.

H

Our product does not contain any hazardous substances according to EEC Directive

2004/73/EC.


If you still have questions about the installation,

the finishing or maintenance?
