Envirocast® Walls

Envirocast Walls.

The Envirocast family of walls includes above grade residential walls, basement walls, and commercial walls. Envirocast walls are suitable for use in single family and multi-family residential applications, as well as light commercial applications. 

Envirocast walls are offered in a variety of heights, depending on application, including 9′-3 5/8″, 10′-0″, 11′-0″, 12′-0″, and 13′-8″, with custom sizes available to meet project specific requirements. The walls can be adapted to a variety of light commercial applications as well, such as storage, office building, warehouses, or any project requiring up to 36′ walls. 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 structure 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″ walls are 19.2. These values make the walls incredibly 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 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, and the walls pass UL1715 fire testing. 

In addition to the benefits mentioned previously of strength, durability, insulating value, and integral metal studs, the walls can be quickly installed. Since the walls are precast, they can be manufactured in plant-controlled conditions while excavation is being performed on site, allowing for immediate installation. Most typical basements can be set in a day 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 wall system allows for several other key features including brick ledges, slab support ledges, beam pockets, and treated wood framing around window and door openings. The shiplap joint design and high-strength concrete offer excellent damp-proofing qualities. Other precast accessories can be provided like footings, headers, and columns 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 also supply pre-stressed hollow core slabs for floor applications upon request. 

The Envirocast residential wall is also available in a variety of finishes, including smooth, broom, brick stamp, and more. Also, the Envirocast residential wall can be a versatile component of the building facade.
