High Concrete Group LLC has introduced ThinCastTM, the thinnest precast concrete rainscreen panel available on the market. Designed for use in commercial, institutional, retail, and low- to high-rise construction, this innovation provides architects with the natural beauty and character of concrete in lightweight panels that accomplish their rainscreen design goals.
ECast is a weight-saving precast concrete that allows High to strategically tailor the weight of precast members to specific project requirements. Formulated from lightweight sands and aggregates, ECast helps to directly reduce transportation costs and fuel use.
High uses ECast to optimize truckloads, as when weight adjustments will allow two pieces to ship versus only one. Weighing from 110 to 149 pounds per cubic foot, ECast can also reduce the size of the crane needed to erect a building. Designing with lightweight ECast in mind can allow architects to safely reduce a building’s foundation and superstructure requirements. ECast can be used in combination with EcoMix® and CarbonCast® for more sustainable precast projects.
