The Stresscrete Wall Panel System is primarily designed to be
used as an exterior wall cladding for industrial buildings where
long term maintenance and speed of construction is important.
The Stresscrete Wall Panel System consists of precast concrete
panels manufactured in our factory.
These have a natural finish which is dense and water
resistant. A finish compatible with paints suitable for concrete
surfaces can be provided if requested at time of order. Other
surface textures, such as an exposed aggregate finish can be
manufactured. Standard edge details are suitable for the
application of proprietary sealants.
Wall panels are transported to the building site on their
edge on “A” frames, or may be transported flat if the design
Wall panels should be lifted from the truck, rotated if
necessary, and placed in position on the structure by the
lifting points provided.
PROPPING AND DEPROPPING
While the panel is still attached to the crane, the panel
should be temporarily propped in its final position, depropping
should take place on the Engineers instruction.
The Stresscrete Wall Panel System is able to be used with
most proprietary fixing hardware. If Stresscrete carries out the
design, we will design a system to suit your building’s
