The Envirocast family of walls starts with the Envirocast Basement and Envirocast Above Grade Residential walls. The walls are suitable for use in single family and multi-family residential applications, as well as light commercial applications.
These walls are offered in a variety of heights including 9′-3 5/8″, 10′-0″, 11′-0″, 12′-0″, & 13′-8″, with custom sizes available to meet your project specific requirements. These walls can be adapted to a variety of light commercial applications as well, such as storage, office building, warehouses, or any project requiring walls up to 36′ requirements. Rather than being a fixed product limited by design, the Envirocast Residential Walls are dynamic and can take on many shapes, forms, and functions
The wall structural system consists of reinforced vertical and horizontal integral concrete studs and “bond beams” that provide vertical and horizontal flexural and shear capacity to meet all National, State, and local Building Codes. Wire mesh reinforcing may be added to enhance in-plane shear capacity.
The insulating properties are achieved by a core of EPS insulation. R-Values vary depending on actual configuration, but typical values for the 9′-3 5/8″ and 10′-0″ walls are 23, while the 12′-0″ wall comes in at R 19.2. These values make these walls very attractive when considering the 2012 Energy Code requirements.
To add to the value of the system, 1 5/8″ or 2 1/2″, 20 gauge metal studs finish out the inside of the wall, making it ready to receive the wall finish. The wall may even employ a no-metal stud application in some cases. Theses wall have been tested for UL1715 burn testing and achieved a passing score.
In addition to the benefits mentioned previously of strength, durability, insulating value, and integral metal studs, these walls excel in speed of installation. As precast, they can be manufactured in plant controlled conditions while excavation is being performed on site, allowing for immediate installation of the walls. Most typical basements can be set in a day’s time as opposed to multiple days or even weeks like masonry or poured in place walls. In addition the plant controlled conditions allow for tighter tolerances and sharp, clean lines.
The Envirocast walls system allows for several other important features including brick ledges, slab support ledges, beam pockets, and treated wood framing around window and door openings. The ship lap joint design and high strength concrete offer excellent damproofing qualities. Other precast accessories can be provided like footings, headers, columns, etc. for special applications.
The walls may be stacked for multi-level buildings or for residential basement walls with above grade walls on top. We can provide pre-stressed hollow core slabs for floor applications upon request.
