Precast concrete wall panels: the facts
Ideal for various building and construction projects, many of our customers turn to precast concrete panels for retaining walls for a wide range of uses, including livestock walls, salt barns, grain stores, recycling yards and agricultural and industrial buildings.
As well as having many benefits, including quick and easy installation, precast concrete wall panels cost very little and are guaranteed to stand the test of time.
Here at JP Concrete, we provide expert assistance with the supply of tailored wall panels to best suit your needs, as well as installation assistance and advice from an experienced team.
What are the benefits of precast concrete wall panels?
Built to last, our concrete wall panels perform well in a wide range of weather conditions and can be provided in lengths of up to 6.5 metres, so they can even be used on larger building projects. Our panels come complete with a tongue and groove fitting, which ensures a quick and precise finish if you are installing multiple panels yourself.
What are the technical properties of precast wall panels?
Produced in a high-quality, factory-controlled environment, all of our panels are CE marked and designed to British Standards BS-8110 to ensure that they are up to the job. Each concrete panel is manufactured using a 9.3mm-diameter steel strand, which is then connected through a casting bed and placed under tension during casting.
The mix is produced and designed to achieve a C60 strength (after 28 days) and is then poured into the bed to provide a 30mm covering to the strand, which is sufficient for even very severe exposure.
How are precast concrete wall panels supplied?
Our panels are provided with all of the necessary equipment required to ensure a successful installation, including galvanised steel fixing bolts and plates and sealant, should you be purchasing the 150mm and 180mm panels. If required, we can also supply you with lifting shackles for easy manoeuvring, as well as a handy guidebook complete with the key features and technical data of our wall panels and instructions on easy handling and installation.
Which ranges of precast concrete wall panels are available?
Our range of precast concrete wall panels can be tailored to suit your individual requirements. We can provide thicknesses of up to 280mm, but recommend the following thickness measurements:
- 100mm for non-retaining panels (livestock walling)
- 150mm for retaining panels (grain, silage, earth)
- 180mm for surcharge loads (vehicles, heaped material)
- 280mm for spans up to 7000mm, 100 year design life and HGV loadings
