Precast Installation

Precast, one of the most preferred concrete systems in building construction, provides the desired aesthetic appearance on the exterior facade. Additionally, with its insulation properties, soundproofing, and mono fiber structure, it adds durability.

The procedures involved in this product are also simple, saving you time in your projects. Precast installation follows specific steps, requiring various building materials during the process.

Precast Installation Process

Initially, portable building materials are prepared according to the specified dimensions on the facade. In the steel frame system, a skeletal structure is formed based on the predetermined dimensions for precast application.

The steel anchorage system supports the connection points of this skeletal structure to the building. The precast structure is then applied to the building following these steps. The material consists of glass fiber with alkali resistance, silica sand, white cement, and chemical concrete additives. The preparation of precast occurs in a factory environment. After determining the dimensions of the application area, production begins in the desired design format.

Molds are prepared for casting according to requirements, which can include fiber, wood, and silicone molds. Once the casting phase is complete, the prepared precast units are transported to the site for installation using mobile or fixed cranes.

How is Precast Installation Done?

Precast can be installed in all weather conditions, minimizing the risk of adverse effects. This feature makes it the top choice for building concrete systems. After the preparation process in a factory environment, precast moves to the installation phase.

The products are transported to the site using fixed or mobile cranes. To prevent rust or decay in outdoor environments, products can be coated with zinc. Precast units are then mounted onto the designated steel frame systems. Any gaps between precast units are filled with materials like silicone or filler. Finally, the units are painted in the chosen colors to complete the process.

Steel Frame System

The frame system is a critical stage in precast exterior cladding, as the precast units are entirely tailored to fit this area. Dimensions may vary for each building, and any inaccuracies can result in misalignment or detachment of precast units. Therefore, careful planning of the skeletal structure is essential in the steel frame system.

Steel Anchorage System

The anchorage system provides support at the connection points of the designated steel frame system using dowels. It contributes to the overall strength of the structure.

Halfen Channels

Halfen Channels also support the anchorage systems, aiding in the mounting of the frame and anchorage systems onto the building.

Precast Facade Panel Installation

The installation of precast facade panels, providing both aesthetic appeal and structural integrity in exterior cladding, begins with panel creation. These panels may vary in design for each building, ranging from aesthetic to functional models.

While straightforward designs are usually mounted directly onto the structure following the frame and anchorage systems, more intricate panels may require additional mounting with silicone or fillers. These decorative exterior building systems commonly include features such as Floor Trims, Corner Coverings, Arched and Keystone Stones, Pilasters and Quoins, Balustrades, Railings, Cornices, and Door Thresholds.

Considerations in Precast Installation

In the precast installation process, the accuracy of measurements taken from the building is crucial. The steel frame system’s assembly is entirely based on these measurements. Even a slight error can result in improper fitting of building materials, leading to aesthetic and structural issues. Similarly, the application of silicone and filler in gap areas must be done professionally.
