With 33% of energy loss in the U.S. occurring through heating, cooling and operating commercial buildings, MSC Insulated Panels can save on energy Costs.The ASHRAE 90.1 2007 and the IECC 2009, 2012 and 2015 energy codes call for continuous insulation to reduce thermal bridging when pre cast is connected to another superstructure.
The Metal Stud Crete Insulated Pre Cast panel system is your best choice for commercial projects that require greater energy efficiency, to meet or exceed the IECC building code. The Framed and Insulated Pre-cast Panel System provides a unique union of technologies that together are superior to conventional systems.
Each pre-cast panel is a combination of a thermally resistant open web steel stud and a Metal Stud Crete connector that separates the framing from the pre-cast concrete when spray on foam insulation is continuously applied to the inside of the panel. The insulation then flows between the concrete and the framing, and through the openings in the studs to create a thermal break. The Air Gap between the framing and the concrete can be adjusted to accommodate up to 1” of R-7.5 continuous insulation. This panel assembly uniquely combines steel stud framing, insulation, and pre-cast concrete into a cladding system for use as a building enclosure . Each panel is pre-cast and cured in a factory environment for consistent dimensional accuracy, finish uniformity and exceptional quality control.
