Precast technology delivers the best mix of speed, quality and value. The use of the technology helps in saving up to 60% of total man hours, improves the resilience of the structure and is more environmentally sustainable.
Easy handling - Due to the controlled casting environment it is easier to control the mix, placement and curing
Better quality - Quality can be monitored much more easily as the components are manufactured in a controlled environment
Weather-independent - As the production is largely indoors, the vagaries of the weather do not wreck timelines and product quality
Not labour-intensive - The number of hands required as well as the time for which they are required, both are curtailed
Easy Installation - On site, precast can be installed immediately as there is no down time for it to gain strength; also, the modularity of precast products makes installation go quickly
Repeatability - It's easy to make many copies of the same precast product; maximizing repetition, helps draw optimum value from a mold and a set-up
Accelerated curing - By heating the precast parts, strength gain greatly increases reducing the time between casting the part and putting it into service
Concrete of excellent standards - The tight control over the process from materials to consolidation to curing, ensures the production of extremely durable concrete
Precast technology has proved to be a lifeline for the entire community promoting sustainable design and construction. The technology, with its advantages and easy maintenance, also contributes admirably to the goal of environment conservation.
Durability and adaptability Precast concrete panels provide a long service life due to their durable, low-maintenance surfaces. Insulated sandwich panel construction with concrete exterior and interior walls provides long-term durability inside and out. Precast concrete construction also provides the opportunity to move and reuse panels to revamp the building, rather than demolish it.
Thermal mass and energy performance The thermal mass of concrete allows shifting of heating and cooling loads in a structure to help reduce mechanical-system requirements and energy consumption through the building exterior.
Fire and natural-disaster resistance Precast concrete helps prevent ﬁre from spreading throughout a building or jumping from building to building as it is resistant to wind, hurricanes, and ﬂoods.
No air inﬁltration Precast concrete panels have negligible air inﬁltration. Minimizing air inﬁltration between panels and at ﬂoors and ceilings will provide a building with low air inﬁltration. These lead to lower energy costs and help prevent moisture problems.
Usage of local materials The precast concrete plants use local materials in abundance. This reduces the transportation required to ship heavy building materials, and the associated harmful emissions.
Resistance to noise Precast concrete walls provide an effective buffer between outdoor noise and the indoor environment.
