BETHLEHEM, Pa. (PRWEB) June 06, 2014
Award-winning CarbonCast® enclosures by AltusGroup (altusprecast.com), a nationwide network of 17 precast concrete manufacturers, will be exhibited at the AIA 2014 National Convention and Expo, booth #4157, McCormick Center, Chicago, June 26-28, 2014. AltusGroup will share the booth with Mid-States Precast Concrete, one if its members based in the greater Chicago market.
Attendees will learn how CarbonCast products offer remarkable performance, sustainability and aesthetic benefits for commercial, institutional and multi-family applications. CarbonCast Enclosure Systems use C-GRID carbon fiber grid as a truss connector between the interior and exterior wythes of concrete in precast sandwich wall panels. The almost negligible thermal transfer of the connection system delivers continuous insulation to meet ASHRAE 90.1 energy codes.
CarbonCast’s recent ICC-ES acceptance (ESR#2953), assures the building team that the product meets current I-Code requirements.
The first-ever international partnership of precast companies, AltusGroup was founded in 2003 to develop, manufacture and market precast innovations such as the award-winning CarbonCast® line of products featuring C-GRID carbon fiber grid reinforcing. With more than two dozen structural and architectural locations in the United States, the 17 North American and three international AltusGroup companies have an unparalleled network of manufacturing plants, technical staff and sales personnel to ensure architects, engineers and contractors get the help they need—and the quality and performance they expect—when they select CarbonCast products.
