Cladding

Ultra High-Resistant

Aesthetics

CAAST® cladding panels can be used as a standalone External Thermal Insulation solution on a variety of building projects:

  • Residential
  • Hospitality
  • Educational
  • Healthcare
  • Commercial/offices
  • Cultural
  • Tall buildings

Their lightweight composition allows them to be installed on concrete, masonry and wooden frameworks, either as a first application or – just like on other types of building substructure – as replacement cladding.The generous surface area and invisible fastening system of CAAST® cladding panels combine with the material’s inherent thinness and strength to provide greater freedom in design – all while minimizing construction joints.

CAAST®’s self-consolidating qualities and finely grained texture replicates mold materials with precision, resulting in high quality surface finishes (both smooth and textured panels, including bush hammered, brushed, and more) that fully embody the mineral nature and authenticity of concrete.

Pigments can be stirred directly into the mixture, allowing for a wider range of color that can be further customized.

Flexibility

CAAST® Ultra-High Performance Concrete cladding panels combine the best aspects of industrially manufactured elements with the versatility of an infinitely moldable material.

Our thin, light, and sizable panels can be assembled horizontally or vertically (to cover an entire storey height up to four meters), and complemented with custom geometries and one-piece corners upon request. We also can produce the smaller-sized panels.

Elements are installed on site according to standard rainscreen cladding principles for quicker uptake on a variety of new construction or refurbishment projects, on their own or combined with other materials. We count with the local needed certifications constructive systems.

 

 

 

Durability

CAAST® Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) technologies have a high degree of strength and weather resistance. The robustness of UHPC comes from a denser matrix that transfers stress very effectively while also restricting water and chemical infiltration with an ultra-low coefficient of permeability.

The durability and low maintenance requirements of CAAST® cladding panels allow to add sustainable protection and accrued thermal efficiency to your building,

The material’s heightened mechanical performance infuses the precast panels with exceptional strength and impact resistance. Customized constructive designs can be retained for the stringent impact-proofing requirements of ground-floor applications.

CAAST® ‘s supremely low porosity provides resistance to abrasion, carbonation, penetration of chloride ions, freezing and thawing. This also results in surfaces and walls that are easy to clean, while adjunct treatments can be applied to add water repellency and anti-graffiti protection.

And when panels do get damaged, they can easily be replaced, further extending your building’s life cycle.
