Bethlehem, PA (PRWEB) February 27, 2012
New online videos by AltusGroup (altusprecast.com), a nationwide network of 14 precast concrete manufacturers, will educate key building professionals about carbon fiber reinforced enclosure systems that enhance structural and thermal performance with remarkable aesthetic flexibility.
Video segments will appear on the company website and YouTube channel (youtube.com/altusprecast).
“It’s important to promote sustainable systems like CarbonCast enclosures that use less concrete and more insulating foam for reduced energy use and expenditures,” says AltusGroup chairman Rick Pennell.
The series features a corporate overview and summary of CarbonCast High Performance Insulated Wall Panels, Insulated Architectural Cladding and Architectural Cladding that incorporate C-GRID® carbon fiber grid. The use of C-GRID creates panels that are thinner, lighter, more durable and less costly overall than conventional precast and other building systems.
Additional benefits include continuous insulation to meet ASHRAE requirements, improved fire and safety performance, reduced moisture penetration and speedy installation. Panels may also accommodate a variety of finishes and articulations, including sandblasting, reveals, bullnoses, cornices, thin brick, medallion insets and more. Ultra-durable, pre-finished interior walls are also available and made ready-to-paint, eliminating the cost and time required to install drywall or other surfaces.
The first-ever national partnership of precast companies, AltusGroup was founded to develop, manufacture and market precast innovations like the breakthrough CarbonCast product line featuring C-GRID® carbon fiber grid reinforcing. With more than 30 structural and architectural locations in the United States, AltusGroup companies have an unparalleled national network of manufacturing plants, technical staff and sales personnel. CarbonCast has been honored with ARCHITECT magazine’s R+D award in addition to recognition as an innovative product in Architectural Record, Transmaterial and other media outlets.
