THIN SHELL PRECAST PANELS
After 4 years of research and development, Jasman has combined lightweight steel framing with all the benefits of precast panels--minus the weight. These panels weigh 100 lbs/sf less than conventional precast, allowing the superstructure to be down sized. The framing in this panel allows an airspace at the interior side of the panel which is sprayed with foam insulation. This forms a lightweight energy efficient Building Enclosure System.
Lightweight concrete panels have been widely used nationwide for 25 years, however the stud attachment system did not meet Jasman's rigorous standards until the development of thecomposite energy stud (bottom left photo).
Scope of Work
• Supply engineered shop drawings, including structural attachments to steel superstructure
• Fabricate light gage steel frames using composite structural energy studs
• Build forms
• Contract with PCI certified precaster to cast the panels
