Lafarge Insulcore insulated precast concrete panels provide a functional and aesthetic exterior wall system. Insulated precast sandwich wall panels consist of two reinforced precast concrete wythes with a continuous layer of rigid insulation in between. Panels can be manufactured as a composite design where the inner and outer wythes work integrally to accommodate service loads, or as a non-composite design whereby the outer wythe is supported off the inner structural wythe. Precast sandwich wall panels are available in a range of widths, lengths, thicknesses and exterior finishes. Standard modular panels provide speed and economy. Custom panels can be produced for a variety of special applications. Sandwich wall panels offer many benefits because of their unique construction.
