The Tollways Management Corporation (TMC), operator of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and the Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) now ventures into producing and selling eco-friendly fence system named TeMCrete.
TeMCrete is a pre-fabricated concrete panel and post assembly fence system; the first of its kind in the country, considering that instead of steel, the fence is bamboo-reinforced making it energy efficient. It is easy to install, strong and economical too. The tongue-in-groove design of the post members makes the structure’s installation easier. The fence is durable, sturdy and protected against theft. Compared to other pre-fabricated and conventional fence sytem, TeMCrete is more stronger as it maintains a 3,000 psi concrete strength.
It took TMC about two years to develop the technology and secure the patent. Now it serves as the perimeter fencing system of both NLEX and SCTEX. The product is patented under the Intellectual Property Office and passed the requirement of the National Structural Code of the Philippines.
This innovative fencing system is now commercially available and can be used for residential subdivisions, property and land development enclosures. Among its initial clients include the BCDA and EEI.
