The Concrib Cribwall system is our oldest and most durable system. Our theory is to make the largest units possible. This reduces the number of pieces in the wall, and minimizes breakage in handling. It also increases layer thickness and increases production in the shop as well as the field.
In wall applications such as these - railroad loading and poor foundations - settlement will occur and more than likely at different rates. This is not an ideal situation for a crib wall. The settlement and movement of the wall will transfer loads into the concrete members as time passes. The Concrib crib system is the most durable crib wall on the market today. The large dry cast members allow ample space to incorporate whatever reinforcing steel the job requires, and gives Hilfiker and it’s clients the confidence that we won’t have to come back and build this wall again in our lifetime!
