UHPC Panels

We are experts in the design, manufacture, and installation of ultra-high-performance concrete panels. We have extensive experience using UHPC for facade panels and cladding panels in new and existing structures. We also offer a wide range of natural stone products.

Premier Precast ultra-high-performance concrete panels

Our ultra-high-performance concrete panels are manufactured using the latest technology and equipment.

Our panels have a compressive strength of over 150 MPa and are made with glass fiber reinforcement to minimize thermal expansion. The panels are available in various colors and textures with one or two layers.

What are UHPC panels?

UHPC panels are a construction material made by casting ultra-high-performance concrete in a reusable mold or “form”. It is then cured in a controlled environment, transported to the construction site, and lifted into position.

Precast concrete panels come in all shapes and sizes but are typically rectangular slabs used as walls, floors, or cladding.

The most common type of precast concrete panel is the load-bearing wall panel, which is used as a structural element in buildings. Load-bearing panels support the weight of the floors and roof. Non-load bearing panels, on the other hand, are used for partitions, cladding, or infill walls.

Why use UHPC panels?

UHPC panels have several advantages over traditional construction materials.

Alkali Resistant Materials

Make it resistant to degradation from weather and chemicals.

Resistant to Weathering

UHPC is weather-resistant and does not require painting or other finishes.

Fire Proofing

Non-combustible material with a high fire rating.

ULTRA STRENGTH MATERIAL

Is resistant to impact and does not dent or ding easily.

Aesthetics

A range of standard colors and textures are available to create various aesthetic effects to add a unique and modern look to any building.

Sound Insulation

An excellent sound insulator that can help reduce noise levels in various applications.

Durability

Extremely durable material that lasts for many years with little or no maintenance.

Easy to Install

Installation can be done quickly and easily. This makes it an ideal material for facade panel applications.

Environmentally Friendly

A sustainable and environmentally friendly building material that can help reduce your carbon footprint.

Exposed fastening Options

Mechanical fasteners are the most common type of fastener used to attach panels to a substrate.

UHPC panel applications

UHPC panels are an excellent choice for building facade cladding. Architects love the clean lines and modern look that these facades provide.

New building construction projects often specify UHPC panels for their facade cladding because of their many benefits. They are easy to install and provide a durable surface that will last for years, making them ideal for use in high-traffic areas.

UHPC facades are also low maintenance, which can save money on a new building project.

Installation of UHPC panels

Ultra-high-performance concrete panels can be installed using various methods. The most common method is known as the “wet lay-up” method. The panel is placed in a prepared mold, and wet concrete is poured over it. It is left to cure for 24 hours before removing it from the mold.

Another installation method is known as the “dry lay-up” method. The panel is placed in a prepared mold, and dry concrete is troweled over it and left to cure for 24 hours before removing the panel.

No matter which installation method you choose, UHPC panels can provide your project with a sleek, modern look that will impress your clients.
