High-performance precast concrete insulated sandwich wall panels provide a versatile, efficient, attractive, and resilient building enclosure system. PCI-certified precast concrete insulated sandwich wall panels are also very economical – especially when designed and constructed as a load-bearing element.
Speed of erection: A typical standard-sized warehouse can be erected in weeks vs. months. Cold weather is not a factor, since the panels are cast in a temperature-controlled environment and shipped to the site when needed.
Thermal efficiency: Edge-to-edge, top-to-bottom rigid insulation can be used within a relatively thin wall, providing a highly effective R-value. The concrete’s thermal mass provides an added benefit by slowing heat transmission through the wall, flattening out temperature swings. A building’s thermal performance can actually double using precast wall elements, thus in turn can reduce the size of HVAC units needed.
Competitive cost: Precast concrete wall panels can be a cost-effective alternative to masonry or other hard wall systems and does not require as much labor as other systems.
