Industrial Sandwich

Sandwich panels – multiple advantages for industrial buildings

Precast insulated concrete Sandwich panels are an inexpensive, strong, energy-efficient, fire-resistant and durable cladding system. They offer many advantages for a wide range of industrial buildings, including manufacturing and high-tech facilities, warehouse distribution and food-processing centres, and retail outlets. The panels are well suited for the durable, wide-open spaces required.

The Sandwich panels are available in a wide variety of lengths, widths, thicknesses and finishes.

Sandwich panels consist of an outer leaf of precast concrete, an insulation layer and a backing leaf of plain grey concrete. The type and thickness of insulation can be varied to achieve the required U-value.

Advantages of Sandwich wall panels

Economical: the panels are produced in standard designs under controlled factory conditions, and may be easily expanded or adapted to new uses.

Waste avoidance: our panels produce very little waste on site, thus saving on skips, etc.

Rapid construction: this means the building shell can be enclosed quickly in all seasons, meaning no delays due to bad weather. This ensures further efficiencies in the construction process and minimizes the need to co-ordinate different trades.

Choice of attractive finishes: designers can select from a wide variety of shapes, finishes, sizes and colours. Buildings can thus project a more attractive image than most industrial facilities. The prefinished smooth concrete interior wall surfaces resist everyday wear and tear, and meet the requirements for food processing and other occupancies where cleanliness is essential.

Structural integrity: single-storey panels can normally be designed to span between the foundation and roof beams, without the need for any intermediate supports. Load-bearing panels make beams and columns along exterior walls unnecessary.

Energy efficiency: they have superior insulating properties, which may be varied to suit requirements, and their high thermal mass is unmatched by any other material.

Durability and low maintenance: this means cost savings over the life of a building.

Fire-resistance: the rigid insulation is protected between two layers of precast concrete, and the sandwich panels can provide for up to three-hour fire resistance. The additional safety and security cuts costs in terms of insurance rates and mortgages.

Acoustic and vibration control: sandwich panels have high sound-attenuating properties, which dampen noise whether inside or outside.

Insulated space: precast industrial buildings can provide an insulated space that requires little heating or cooling equipment.

Major companies are increasingly turning to sandwich panels because of their advantages in terms of design flexibility, aesthetics, speed, durability and cost efficiency.
