Architectural Precast Concrete
and Steel Stud Building Panels

Panel Installation Method

SlenderWall uses a proprietary erection methodLift-and-Release that greatly speeds up panel installation. With the Lift-and-Release system, SlenderWall panels can be plumbed and aligned after the crane has unhooked and moved on using a turn-of-nut connection. See Drawing Details E-1 through E-4 in the Typical Details for more technical detials.

Our choice of experienced erection companies must be PCI-qualified erectors, or have a minimum of five years experience installing SlenderWall architectural precast concrete panels. Our installers place safety above all other concerns as they set panels according to delivery sequences and schedules. They also carefully coordinate site access and storage priorities with the general contractor to maximize the number of panels set per day. Field crews carefully execute the connection details according to the approved engineering design.
