Title
(EN) METHOD OF FABRICATING DECORATIVE WALL
(FR) PROCEDE DE FABRICATION D'UN MUR DECORATIF
Abstract
(EN)
A method of forming a wall structure (10) that replicates a wall formed by nature. Methodology for fabricating the wall structure (10) includes pouring a first concrete mixture (12a) into a substantially vertical form (50) which is constructed as a channel (56) within a generally elongate mound (54) of naturally occurring material and thereafter permitting a top surface of the mixture to assume a non-level configuration. Preferably, a joint forming material (22) is placed on the top surface of this first concrete mixture (12a). In like manner, a second concrete mixture (14a) is poured on top of the first layer (12) and a joint forming material (22) is included. Additional layers (16, 18, 20) can be added, with the concrete mixtures preferably including decorative additives (26, 28) that are exteriorly visible. After form (50) removal by removing the mound (54), the entire wall (10) or individual layers (12, 14, 16 ,18, 20) thereof can be subjected to an exterior treatment to enhance appearance.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un procédé de formation d'une structure de mur (10) qui imite un mur formé par la nature. Le procédé de fabrication de cette structure de mur (10) consiste à couler un premier mélange de ciment (12a) dans un moule globalement vertical (50). Ce dernier est conçu comme un canal (56) qui traverse un monticule globalement allongé (54) fait d'un matériau d'origine naturelle. On laisse ensuite la surface supérieure du mélange prendre une configuration non nivelée. Un matériau de formation de joint (22) est de préférence disposé sur la surface supérieure de ce premier mélange de ciment (12a). De manière analogue, un second mélange de ciment (14a) est coulé sur cette première couche (12), un matériau de formation de joint (22) étant également prévu. Des couches complémentaires (16, 18, 20) peuvent être ajoutées, tandis que les mélanges de ciment comprennent de préférence des additifs décoratifs (26, 28) visibles de l'extérieur. Après avoir retiré le moule (50) en enlevant le monticule (54), le mur tout entier (10) ou les couches individuelles (12, 14, 16, 18, 20) qui le composent peuvent être soumis à un traitement externe afin d'en améliorer l'aspect.
