With 33% of energy loss in the U.S. occurring through heating, cooling and operating commercial buildings, government and private efforts to stem this loss have been calling for more energy efficient building systems. The ASHRAE 90.1 2007 and the IECC 2009 and 2012 energy codes call for continuous insulation to reduce thermal bridging when using steel studs.
The Framed and Insulated Pre-cast Panel System is your best choice for commercial projects that require greater energy efficiency, to meet or exceed the IECC building code. The Framed and Insulated Pre-cast Panel System provides a unique union of technologies that together are superior to conventional systems.
Each pre-cast panel is a combination of a thermally resistant ACCEL-E Steel Thermal Efficient Panel (STEP) wall system and Metal Stud Crete, a leading cold formed steel specialty connector that together can be combined with precast concrete to create a composite panel - a panel that uniquely combines framing, insulation and cladding. Each panel is pre-cast and cured in a factory environment for consistent dimensional accuracy, finish uniformity and exceptional quality control.
