Precast Concrete Basements

Precast concrete foundations feature patented, insulated, precast concrete wall panels that are formed in a factory-controlled setting and delivered to the new home job site, where the panels are lifted into position with a crane and carefully bolted together and sealed. The walls are custom-designed and built to virtually any architectural style, complete with window and door openings.

Wall panels are available in a variety of standard heights and custom lengths to suit your project. The maximum axial load (uniform house weight) for this product is 7500 pounds per linear foot. Special point loads up to 50,000 pounds can be accommodated.

The concrete used in these wall systems provides protection against freeze/thaw cycles and water vapor transmission. The urethane sealant used between panels provides superior protection against water penetration. Therefore, no additional dampproofing materials are required and no Vapor barrier required.

Precast concrete wall products do not require the attachment of a 15- minute thermal barrier. Ref ICC-ES ESR-1662. Superior Walls products qualify as a two-hour fire separation wall
when two layers of 5/8” Type ‘X’ drywall are applied to the studs.
