Whether it is a home project or a commercial one, the choice of construction product is always governed by its durability, flexibility and versatility both in home design and construction stages, and fire safety. On all these parameters, precast concrete scores over other construction products.
What is precast concrete?
It is a construction product that is produced by casting concrete in a reusable mold, which is then cured in a controlled environment. Once cured, it is transported the construction site and lifted into the place.
Reasons to choose pre-cast concrete
- Enhanced comfort
Owing to its intrinsic properties of thermal inertia and acoustic insulation, precast buildings ensure a comfortable and peaceful experience to residents.
- Superb protection against fire and natural disasters
From containing fires to resisting blasts and natural catastrophes like earthquakes, tornadoes and floods, precast concrete ensures unmatched safety.
- Enough room for creative expression
As pre-cast concrete is manufactured in factories, it offers a wide choice of surface finishing, colour range and special shapes.
- Protection against rot and insect attacks
Pre-cast concrete is quite stable all through its life span and doesn’t need chemical treatment to protect against rot and insect attack
- Optimized for specific use
By employing advanced technologies in the precasting plants, the precast concrete of the desired quality (reduced tolerances, thinner sections, engineered solutions) can be manufactured to meet varied needs.
As precast concrete offers so many benefits, we will surely see its increased use in both residential and commercial projects in the times to come.
