SlenderWall’s precast concrete cladding systems provide the lasting value that architects, general contractors and property owners/developers demand. Our exterior cladding system benefits are widespread and it starts with durable and cost-efficient features. Precast concrete wall panels by SlenderWall are produced throughout North America and have been designed and installed for mixed use, multi-family, schools, office buildings, hotels and many other commercial, municipal and residential structures.
The value of SlenderWall shows itself throughout the design, delivery, installation and settling processes. Our precast concrete cladding systems are economical from the start with a focus on cost and quality efficiency -- a major advantage with any precast concrete product. With over 3,000,000 square feet of exterior cladding systems installed, SlenderWall concrete panels are over 66% lighter in weight compared to traditional architectural precast concrete. This results in expedited delivery and lower costs allows for smaller cranes to lift the panels into place.
Quality control is at its highest possible level during the manufacturing process. Because all concrete wall panels are produced in climate-controlled factories as outdoor temperatures, snow, rain or heat do not alter the curing process.
Perhaps the greatest value found within SlenderWall’s precast concrete wall panels feature the elements of durability, cost-efficiency and permanence. Our precast concrete cladding systems are designed to reduce cooling and heating costs for property owners and tenants. Moreover, the innovative H2Out in the sealant joint rainscreen and street level leak detection system is a proven system that keeps any structure dry and leak-free.
