AltusGroup, a North American network of 17 leading precast concrete manufacturers dedicated to innovation, has issued a new 16-page brochure detailing its flagship CarbonCast technology and CarbonCast High Performance Insulated Wall Panels and CarbonCast Insulated Architectural Cladding.
The brochure details how CarbonCast High Performance Insulated Wall Panels offer exceptional thermal efficiency as a result of high-strength C-GRID carbon fiber grid that is used as a shear truss to connect the sandwich panels inner and outer wythes of concrete. The panels offer continuous insulation to meet ASHRAE 90.1 requirements and allow for the architect’s choice of EPS (including graphitized), XPS, polyiso or epoxy foam insulation.
CarbonCast Insulated Architectural Cladding is also highlighted. Its use of C-GRID carbon fiber grid also delivers continuous insulation for energy savings. Panels can weigh up to 40% less than conventional 6-8-inch thick architectural precast for lower transportation costs and improved seismic performance.
The brochure displays extensive project photography to inspire architects and show the versatility of the CarbonCast system. Detail drawings and a discussion of finish options including the use of Graphic Concrete imaging technology are also included. Further, the literature offers an overview of CarbonCast’s extensive testing as well as its sustainability and resilience benefits.
Since its introduction in 2004, CarbonCast technology has been used on over 1,500 successful projects comprising more than 45 million square feet of surface area, delivering exceptional performance and aesthetic freedom for the building team.
The first-ever national partnership of precast companies, AltusGroup was founded in 2003 to develop, manufacture and market precast innovations such as the award-winning CarbonCast® line of products, ARCIS ultra-thin precast panels and the Graphic Concrete technology for imparting patterns, designs and images on concrete faces. With more than 30 structural and architectural manufacturing locations in the United States, the 17 North American and two international AltusGroup companies have an unparalleled network of plants, technical staff and sales personnel to ensure architects, engineers and contractors get the help they need as well as the consistent quality and performance they expect.
