Slender Wall Architectural Precast Concrete Panels IntroductionSlender Wall Precast Steel Stud Building Panels Introduction to Features and Benefits


SlenderWall is a proprietary exterior cladding, architectural precast concrete/steel-stud building-panel wall system with superb design flexibility. It offers limitless combinations of architectural precast textures, colors, shapes and finishes. In addition, it is lightweight (about 28 lbs. per square foot compared to approximately 85 lbs. for traditional heavy architectural precast), economical (reduces building foundation and structure requirements, plus shipping and installation costs), and perfect for either re-cladding or new construction.

The SlenderWall panelís exterior surface is 2-inches of reinforced high-strength architectural precast concrete. The inside surface is 16 gauge, 6-inch galvanized steel studs spaced vertically at 2-foot centers. The architectural concrete is secured to the steel-stud frame with ThermaGuard, a proprietary connection system utilizing insulated, stainless-steel welded anchors.

SlenderWall is the only wall system that combines these four time-tested, proven design components to create an integrated exterior wall system weighing about two-thirds less than conventional architectural precast or brick:

  1. High-strength architectural precast concrete
  2. PVA fiber reinforcement
  3. Coated stainless- steel headed anchors
  4. Heavy-gauge G90 galvanized studs

Only SlenderWall has these five proprietary design components.

Proprietary Feature Benefit
technology allows 360° differential movement that isolates the precast concrete from the superstructure
connection anchor with thermal-break protection prevents corrosion and reduces thermal transfer by as much as 25%
panel installation
(patent pending)
facilitates easier and quicker installation
further eliminates moisture conditions
architectural precast concrete brick finish (APCB) the only “Class A” precast brick on the market with the quality level necessary for “Class A” commercial projects

SlenderWall has been fully tested and meets the required ASTM and AAMA standards.

Applications

SlenderWall is used for new construction, re-cladding, and renovation of large, multi-story commercial buildings. Developed over 20 years ago, it has changed forever how the world builds. Licensed producers have enhanced the architectural industry with more than 60 SlenderWall projects in 11 states, the District of Columbia and the Canadian Provence of Quebec.
