Low Life Cycle Cost of Insulated Sandwich Walls Provide Long-Term Savings

The low life cycle cost of County Prestress’ Insulated Sandwich Walls (ISWs) offer a compelling solution for construction projects. Their efficient installation, durability, and low operating costs contribute to long-term savings.

Efficient Installation

ISWs are fabricated off-site in a controlled environment, enabling year-round production regardless of weather conditions. Panels can be produced while the construction site is being prepared, and there’s no need for extra space to be prepared at the site for casting and curing panels.

Installation usually requires smaller crews compared to other building envelopes, streamlining labor coordination. Notably, ISWs act as both exterior and interior walls, requiring no additional finishing work or insulation. They can even be produced with custom patterns to provide aesthetically pleasing facades, eliminating the need for additional masonry work.

Additionally, County Prestress’ enhanced production capacity accommodates shorter lead times, helping projects achieve an earlier return on investment.

Unmatched Durability

ISWs exhibit exceptional resistance to fire, wind, and forklift damage, ensuring a robust and enduring structure that can withstand challenging working conditions. The high-performance panels, composed of a cement-rich material with a low water-cement ratio, maintain both appearance and structural integrity over time.

Low Operating Costs

Structures built with insulated sandwich walls offer low operating costs because of their energy efficiency. The panels’ built-in layer of insulation helps maintain indoor air temperatures,  contributing to significant long-term savings for the building's owners.
