Top 10 Reasons to Use Precast Walls

Top 10 reasons to use precast walls for your next project:

  • Precast concrete insulated walls provide energy benefits that can exceed the benefits of mass or insulation used alone in the varying climate conditions we see in the upper Midwest regions.
  • Precast concrete walls act as thermal storage to delay and reduce peak thermal loads.
  • Precast concrete insulated wall panels used as an interior surface can save time and money by eliminating the need for separate stud framing and drywall costs.
  • Precast concrete wall panels can be used as load bearing structures and will save costs by eliminating the need for an additional structural framing system.
  • Precast concrete walls can be designed to be reused for future building expansions.
  • Precast concrete’s durability creates a low maintenance structure, which stands up to harsh climate conditions.
  • Precast concrete colors and finishes can be achieved through the use of various aggregates, cements, pigments and finishing techniques.
  • Precast concrete wall panels can utilize a thin brick veneer that can achieve a traditional appearing facade.
  • Precast concrete walls can be produced with textures including formliner shapes, artwork, and lettering to provide distinctive accent treatments.
  • Precast concrete wall panels can have electrical boxes and conduit cast into the panels, to provide flush electrical fixtures on walls that are not to be framed out.
