Betontec Precast Products proven technology and engineering knowledge behind architectural and structural precast concrete design, production and construction.

Betontec Precast Products works closely with owners, architects, general contractors and other stakeholders to provide a wide range of well performing, functional precast concrete insulated and non-insulated wall panels used in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Precast concrete pre stressed and non prestressed girders, and other bridge components for Highway and Railway bridges. Precast Concrete segments, rail sleepers, rail crossing panels and ventilation shafts for railway and tunnel lining.

SCHEMATIC PRECAST CONCRETE CONNECTION

Precast Concrete Characteristics

Precast concrete is one of the most universally used man-made materials in construction today. Structural stability is maintained due to the superior characteristics of precast concrete, which include durability, sustainability, minimal creep and shrinkage, fire and weather resistant and sound control features.

Material of Choice

The use of precast concrete elements remains the construction material of choice for designers, engineers and developers due to the many advantages such as flexibility, speed, aesthetics and as an environmentally friendly product.

Technological Advancement

Technological advancement in the manufacturing of versatile precast concrete elements allow for continued growth to renew and improve ideas, designs and construction materials, which creates a high quality product when compared with in-situ cast concrete elements.

Quality

The quality of precast concrete products is closely monitored and verified in a controlled environment prior to installation. Our state of the art laboratory with high skill technical Staffs consistency monitor raw materials, production and conduct testing to make sure our products meet requirement of Canadian Standard Associations (CSA).

ADVANTAGES

Insulated Sandwich Panels have all of the desirable characteristics of a normal precast concrete wall panel, such as durability; economy; fire resistance; large vertical spaces between supports; and use as shear walls, bearing walls, and retaining walls. They can be relocated to accommodate building expansion. In addition, the insulation provides superior energy performance and moisture protection compared with many other wall systems.

Sandwich panels provide economical, attractive, and energy-efficient hard walls and are found on virtually every type of structure, including residential buildings, schools, office buildings, low-temperature environments, controlled atmospheres, warehouses, industrial buildings, justice facilities, and hospitals. The most common use of insulated sandwich panels is for exterior walls, but they have been used as internal partition walls, particularly around temperature controlled rooms. For example, highly insulated (high R-value) sandwich panels have been used in sub zero freezer applications. Sandwich panels have also been used in architectural applications. The exterior wythe can receive any type of architectural treatment used on any other architectural panel. The hard surface on the inside and outside of the sandwich panel provides resistance in harsh environment, security for owner to protect investment in longer term, solid protection against theft and vandalism, to prevent damages due to material handling machinery and equipment, and also a finished product requiring no further treatment if desired, and beauty look of inside and outside surface of wall are astonishing.

Precast Concrete Wall Panels

Precast/prestressed concrete sandwich wall panels are composed of two concrete wythes (layers) separated by a layer of rigid foam plastic insulation. One of the concrete wythe may be a standard shape, such as a flat slab, hollow-core section, double tee, or any custom architectural concrete section. The main factor for choosing the thickness of reinforced concrete internal walls is the requirements for sound insulation and fire resistance as well as constructional requirements and, their load-bearing capacity. In place, sandwich wall panels can provide the dual function of transferring load and insulating the structure. They may be used solely for cladding, or they may act as beams, bearing walls, or shear walls. Precast/ prestressed concrete sandwich wall panels are used as exterior and interior walls for many types of structures. These panels may readily be attached to any type of structural frame, including structural steel, reinforced concrete, pre-engineered metal and precast/prestressed concrete. The panels are fabricated at a precast concrete manufacturing plant, shipped to the project site, and erected by use of cranes. Panels generally span vertically between foundations and floors or roofs to provide the permanent wall system but may also span horizontally between columns.
