AltusGroup, a collaboration of innovation-focused, North American precasters, will showcase its latest innovations in precast, including ARCIS rainscreen technology, at the 2016 AIA Philadelphia Expo, May 19-21, 2016, at the Philadelphia Convention Center.
AltusGroup (Booth #4015 – shared with founding member High Concrete) will exhibit its innovative ARCIS ultra-thin prestressed panels (arcispanels.com). ARCIS technology provides a versatile, lightweight panel – typically 9-25 lbs./sq. ft. – that offers the strength and aesthetic beauty of precast concrete. Ideal for rainscreens and facades, mechanical screens, decorative applications and other decking applications, ARCIS panels use non-corrosive, high-strength, aerospace-grade stainless steel prestressing to impart strength, crack control and exceptional durability.
AltusGroup Executive Director John Carson will also deliver a presentation on “Carbon Fiber Reinforced Enclosures for Energy Efficient and Resilient Construction,” May 19 at 2 p.m. at the CE Theater A – Booth #352. The presentation will be based on AltusGroup’s extraordinary success with CarbonCast Enclosure Systems, which use carbon fiber grid wythe connectors to deliver continuous insulation and full composite action for load-bearing performance
The first-ever national partnership of precast companies dedicated to “innovation powered by collaboration,” AltusGroup challenges the brightest minds in precast to develop, speed and perfect technologies that improve the built environment.
Products include the award-winning CarbonCast® line of products featuring C-GRID carbon fiber grid reinforcing and ARCIS ultra-thin precast panels for rainscreens and other applications. The nearly two dozen AltusGroup companies have an unparalleled network of manufacturing plants, technical staff and sales personnel to ensure architects, engineers and contractors get the help they need—and the quality and performance they expect.
