Ultra-High Performance Concrete Panels
We are experts in the design, manufacture, and installation of ultra-high-performance concrete panels. We offer extensive experience with UHPC for facade panels and cladding panels in new and existing structures.
Our ultra-high-performance concrete panels are manufactured with the latest technology and equipment.
Our panels have a compressive strength of over 150 MPa and are made with glass fiber reinforcement to minimize thermal expansion. The panels are available in various colors and textures with one or two layers.
What are UHPC panels?
UHPC panels are a construction material made by casting ultra-high-performance concrete in a reusable mold or “form”. It is then cured in a controlled environment, transported to the construction site, and lifted into position.
Premier Precast ultra-high-performance panels come in all shapes and sizes and typically rectangular slabs used as walls, floors, or cladding.
The most common type of precast concrete panel is the load-bearing wall panel, which is used as a structural element in buildings. Load-bearing panels support the weight of the floors and roof. Non-load bearing panels, on the other hand, are used for partitions, cladding, or infill walls.
Why use UHPC panels?
UHPC panels offer several advantages over traditional construction materials.
Alkali Resistant Materials
Resistant from degradation from weather and chemicals.
Resistant to Weathering
UHPC is weather-resistant and does not require painting or other finishes.
Non-combustible material with a high fire rating.
ULTRA STRENGTH MATERIAL
Is resistant to impact will not dent or ding easily.
A range of standard colors and textures are available to create various aesthetic effects that offer a unique and modern look to any building.
An excellent sound insulator that will reduce noise levels in various applications.
Extremely durable material that lasts for many years with little or no maintenance.
Easy to Install
Installation can be done quickly and easily. This makes it an ideal material for facade panel applications.
A sustainable and environmentally friendly building material that reduces your carbon footprint.
Exposed fastening Options
Mechanical fasteners are the most common type of fastener used to attach panels to a substrate.
UHPC panel applications
UHPC panels are an excellent for building facade cladding. Architects love the clean lines and modern look that these facades provide.
New building construction projects often specify UHPC panels for their facade cladding because they are easy to install and provide a durable surface that will last for years, making them ideal for use in high-traffic areas.
UHPC facades are also low maintenance, which can save money on a new building project.
Installation of UHPC panels
Ultra-high-performance concrete panels can be installed using various methods. The most common method is known as the “wet lay-up” method. The panel is placed in a prepared mold, and wet concrete is poured over it. It is left to cure for 24 hours before removing it from the mold.
Another installation method is known as the “dry lay-up” method. The panel is placed in a prepared mold, and dry concrete is troweled over it and left to cure for 24 hours before removing the panel.
No matter which installation method you choose, UHPC panels can provide your project with a sleek, modern look that will impress your clients.
