What are Concrete Sandwich Panels?
Concrete sandwich panels are used with every Tilt-Up construction project as well as pre-cast construction. However, keep in mind that Tilt-Up buildings are considered more energy efficient than pre-cast buildings due to the panel connections.
In essence, a concrete sandwich panel consists of wall panels that are comprised of two concrete wythes that are separated by a layer of rigid insulation. It is the insulation in these concrete sandwich panels that make this such an energy efficient method of building.
For those who choose the tilt-up method, these panels are cast on location, while precast sandwich panels are fabricated in a factory and then shipped to the location of the build.
