Brief illustrates how insulated precast wall panels outperform traditional building materials
AltusGroup, a partnership of 21 innovation-focused North American precasters, has published a technical brief illustrating the benefits that CarbonCast enclosure systems provide for United States Army Corps of Engineering (USACE) projects in terms of sustainability, resiliency and versatility.
The brief discusses the unique challenges USACE projects face in maximizing building performance, and details how CarbonCast technology provides an ideal balance of long-term durability and cost effectiveness. CarbonCast’s edge-to-edge continuous insulation (c.i.) provides a full R-value of insulation by using C-GRID carbon fiber grid, as a thermally efficient wythe connector CarbonCast products can withstand extreme weather, corrosion and cracking, and are available in a variety of finishes and aesthetics.
The five-page PDF also highlights five project success stories, using CarbonCast High Performance Insulated Wall Panels and CarbonCast Architectural Cladding.
Several other AltusGroup technical briefs are available on topics including acoustic properties, insulation, rain barriers and rain screens, and thermal efficiency.
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.
