An energy efficient noise control, security-safety wall system.

Eco Walls are suitable for highways, housing developments, parks, schools and industrial sites.
Eco Walls utilize a high percentage of recycled materials derived from dredged sediments, tires, glass, wood fibers, and collected by products from effective landfill recycling programs.
Eco Walls are produced as a precast system for rapid site assembly
Significant features include:
  • attractive esthetics with wall colors
  • textures and surface art depicting
  • historical facts
  • panoramas
  • murals and expressive depictions of nature
Additional accents include:
  • vines
  • floral arrangements
  • solar-photovaltaic energy panels for lighting
  • telecommunications
Eco Walls meet high shear winds, seismic conditions, flooding and predator control needs.
Surface conditions for permanent installations includes soft soils or rocky terrains.
Installation rates are fast due to self aligning-interlocking joints.
Eco Walls meet numerous building codes including ICBO and other compliance standards.
Eco Walls provide functional features by storing energy internally through batteries and or recirculated fluids for hydronic heating capabilities to melt roadway ice and snow.
Eco Walls store hot water, electricity or have irrigation capabilities for roadside beautification.
Eco Walls are formed regionally by licensed precasters who receive training and engineering support from Zeller Internationals staff.
The Eco Wall system is a proprietary technology with patents pending.
Interlocking sectional walls

Note: Additional capacitance of heated water can be maintained in shallow rain water cisterns or ballast chambers.
Optional features includes electroconductive carbon enriched concrete for heated, snow-ice melting on bridge-roadway surfaces or for heated water supply to buildings.

Basic Eco Wall
Hollow concrete box made from fiber reinforced bonded cement mix. Produced in a form box with a rubber liner. Liner functions as an imprint tool for surface embossment.

Step 1. Hollow concrete preform

ecocrossec06b.jpg (12370 bytes)

Step 2. Preplaced self aligning steel tube for footer column. Male-Female locking pipe for fixed installation to footer.

Step 3. Steel-Foam core panel placed inside wall and then filled with cellular lightweight concrete or tire crumb fill.

Note: Cut out area not shown. Removable panels for hidden batteries or electronic components are accessible for maintenance.
