CarbonCast Insulated Architectural Cladding is engineered to deliver insulation values of R-8 or more in addition to lowering a building’s carbon footprint

CarbonCast Insulated Architectural Cladding from AltusGroup offers weight reductions of about 40 percent when compared to solid, 6-inch-thick precast concrete exterior wall panels. It’s engineered to deliver insulation values of R-8 or more in addition to lowering a building’s carbon footprint.

This insulated, sandwich-type wall panel has inner and outer concrete wythes of 1.75 inches or more in thickness. CarbonCast Insulated Architectural Cladding uses C-GRID carbon fiber grid shear trusses to connect the inner and outer wythes of concrete, creating a strong connection with negligible thermal transfer.

Reducing the amount of concrete lowers the panel weight. Inner and outer wythes of 1.75 inches result in total concrete thickness of 3.5 inches.
