Industrial Precast concrete panels provide many benefits to owners and designers of single and multi-storey retail/commercial buildings. Precast industrial wall panels are economical, attractive, durable, energy efficient and very fast to install. Buildings are enclosed in days in any weather which will considerably speed up the construction process. Truck docks, drive-in doors, rail sidings and personnel doors are all easily accommodated. Panels are competitively priced and can be obtained in a variety of patterns, textures and colours.
Insulated precast sandwich wall panels consist of two reinforced or prestressed concrete wythes with a continuous layer of rigid insulation sandwiched between. They are mass-produced in standard widths, 3660mm (12'-0") maximum, on long line casting beds. With attractive exterior surfaces and steel trowel finished interior faces, they inexpensively provide a strong, durable, energy efficient, fire resistant cladding system.
The type and thickness of insulation contained in sandwich panels varies with the RSI-value required for each building. The insulation is installed under controlled factory conditions and is well protected by the concrete.
Erected at the rate of up to 140 linear meters (460ft) per day on concrete or steel frame buildings, precast industrial wall panels are available in a range of widths, lengths, thickness and exterior finishes. Designed to stand without intermediate supports, they are used for both load bearing and non-load bearing applications.
