Advantages on precast concrete system a) Thermal Performance Precast wall panels derive their thermal performance characteristics primarily

from the amount of insulation placed in the cavity or within the backup wall, which is commonly a metal stud wall in commercial construction. b) Moisture Protection The most common moisture protection system used with precast concrete wall systems is a barrier system incorporating an adequate joint seal. In some cases where additional moisture protection is needed, the application of a sealer or a concrete coating is also used. Sealers can be either clear or pigmented if used as an enhancement of the precast appearance. Film-forming coatings usually offer a higher level of performance but will have a significant impact on the appearance of the precast concrete unit. c) Fire Safety Precast concrete wall systems are not considered to provide any improvement in fire safety over cast-in-place concrete. In fact, for high-rise buildings precast concrete panels can pose a serious safety hazard when a fire occurs that damages the panel connections and causes a panel to then fall from the building. d) Acoustics A precast concrete wall system and cast-in-place facade will provide similar performance regarding sound transmission from the exterior to the interior of the building. e) Material/Finish Durability Precast concrete panels used in wall systems have many different finishes and shapes. Often the finish will include the abrasion or modifying of the surface by sandblasting, exposing aggregate, acid washing, bush-hammering, or other techniques. Each of these finishes presents a different challenge in producing a durable precast concrete panel. f) Maintainability When properly constructed precast concrete panels systems require some maintenance. The most important maintenance item for precast panels is the sealant in joints and protection system, if used. If a sealer or concrete coating has been used for aesthetics or to minimize moisture penetration into the panel, the sealer or coating will require reapplication. The time frame for the sealant and surface protection systems varies widely but usually ranges from every 7 to 20 years.

What is precast concrete system Precast concrete wall systems offer a wide variety of shapes, colors, textures, and finishes to the designer. Precast concrete has been used since the early twentieth century and came into wide use in the 1960s. The exterior surface of precast concrete can vary from an exposed aggregate finish that is highly ornamental to a form face finish that is similar to cast-in-place. The precast concrete wall forms are available in a variety of heights, textures and architectural designs providing solutions for residential, commercial and industrial customers in the concrete fence market. The concept of precast (also known as prefabricated) construction includes those buildings where the majority of structural components are standardized and produced in plants in a location away from the building, and then transported to the site for assembly. These components are manufactured by industrial methods based on mass production in order to build a large number of buildings in a short time at low cost.

Wood laminated system Advantages of laminated wood: Laminated wood is safer, more durable and more resistant over time. Laminated wood, by definition, properly transformed to carpentry items, destroys the myth that it "works", thus solving the problems of bending, warp, and no longer "works" in time to create further inconvenience. Laminated wood is now a possible customization of a house, detaching themselves categorically from other building materials used in carpentry by natural, unique aesthetic fiber and color. Laminated wood has a compact organic internal structure, standing in the natural environment without suffering major changes of properties over time. Laminated wood permanent breathes; almost no condensation on the profile. Laminated wood allows the creation of shapes, textures and unique colors in the carpentry area and beyond. We can can get round shapes with a radius of less than 300 mm, which on other systems (pvc, aluminum) is unfeasible. Laminated wood doors can be personalized by each one's dream, freedom of movement in creativity has no limits here. Laminated wood is for lifetime. By using a kit for annual reconditioning, based on protection waxes applicable with a simple cloth, you can protect woodwork annually without the need for repainting. We have this kit in stock permanently.

Laminated wood does not dilate, so system stability is assured regardless of the season. It's known that countries with large annual temperature variations adopted the laminated wood system as ideal reference.
