GFRC Wall Panels
Concreteworks East’s precast concrete wall panels are the perfect complimentary element to any space as they bring the unique style and texture of precast concrete. Since wall panels have little functional limitations, they become the perfect element to explore the dynamic nature of concrete to its fullest. Whether a geometric grid of varying colors and textures or a three dimensional formed pattern, Concreteworks East can help bring your project to life.
Our concrete wall panels are cast using a Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) matrix,a high performance concrete that allows the panels to be made lighter, stronger, thinner and larger then conventional concrete. Our GFRC wall panels are typically made at 3/4" - 1" thick. Since there are no stone aggregates or metal reinforcing within a standard wall panel, GFRC can be cut as easily as natural stone tile allowing you to order one generic size for efficiency or still design each wall panel to a custom size. With a custom concrete wall panel, designers do not need to be constrained by the limited size, shape, and color options of off the shelf or standardized products. Suitable for both exterior and interior uses, GFRC wall panels act as a functional and aesthetic surface that will always last.
On larger wall panels, Concreteworks East can accommodate cast in mounting hardware that helps ease the installation process, provides additional support, and can be used as a lifting point for installs at higher elevations off floor level. This attachment should be used in conjunction with a high strength epoxy adhesive with a setting bed thickness as specified by the manufacturer. The cast in mounting hardware can be adjusted to accommodate different setting bed dimensions. Wall panels should be installed with seams of at least 1/8".
Concreteworks East offers a standard range of 15 colors though custom color development is available as well. Even further then the color, CWE offers a variety of finishes in creating surfaces with different contrast, texture and depth. All of our products come with sealer applied and depending on the finish, is available in matte or gloss.Navigate our site to learn more about our products.
