Well Tiles & Tank Risers
Our precast concrete frost posts, also known as our precast concrete deck footings, are one of the key ingredients to every successful deck construction project. Shea Concrete Products ensures its frost posts make the job of installing decks much easier because they are simple to use and endure the toughest of winter conditions. No more mixing and transporting concrete on the job site -- just place the precast frost posts in the hole, level the top, and backfill!
The top surface includes a built-in threaded insert for setting and can also be used to receive your post hardware. Unlike the poured-in-place option, you don’t need to wait for setting and curing of concrete. Two types are available -- the 8” square top surface or the 16” square top surface. Both types are available in 4ft and 5ft heights.
Shea Concrete’s precast frost posts include an integrated spread footing or base (ready-made combination deck footing and deck pillar all in one). The base should be situated below the frost line of the local area. The wide base also provides increased weight bearing support. Refer to our drawings for bearing support specifics.
Our precast concrete frost posts are not just for decks; the posts can be utilized for any gate, stand, or mail box. Call Shea Concrete Products at (800) 696-SHEA if you’re interested in our concrete frost posts.
Our precast concrete fire cisterns are reliable water sources for fire fighting, often required when municipal water supply is not available in the area. Shea Concrete Products offers many different capacities, sizes and layouts. A precast concrete fire cistern can be manufactured as a single tank or multiple tanks. Our cisterns are rated for AASHTO HS20-44 loading. The weight of the tank usually requires an on-site crane for setting.
All fire cisterns are manufactured, delivered, set, and assembled by Shea Concrete

We also offer an optional water level float gauge with viewing glass to externally monitor water level in fire cistern. Manhole risers with bolt down covers for security are provided for tank access.
Precast concrete cisterns are your only choice in high water table conditions. Concrete tanks can be designed for buoyant forces without the need of tie downs.
There are many different possible layouts; some provide a gravity flow and some have pumped discharge. The local fire chief should be contacted about any project before you start planning for an underground water storage tank. Work with your fire department to ensure the system will work as planned when needed. The cistern capacity shall be calculated in accordance with the most recent edition of Standards 1231 and 1141 of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), which is available at www.nfpa.org
