View more info Litecrete residential wall panels have been developed to offer a durable alternative to traditional house construction methods and for the purposes of complying with the Building Code are classed as an "Alternative Solution". Litecrete precast panels form an integral wall: solid, continuous and airtight. The panels are manufactured using pumice aggregate, which reduces the weight of the concrete yet achieves strength of 12 MPa. The air cells in the pumice provide excellent insulating properties. Litecrete is manufactured under strict quality-controlled factory conditions and delivered to site on a day determined by the builder or project manager, who arrange for the craneage and installation. Standard thicknesses are 220 mm, 280 mm and 330 mm to comply with the Code insulation requirements (for concrete and masonry) in the three designated Climate Zones. Other thicknesses can be manufactured, such as 150 mm thick for internal walls. The panels have fully embedded reinforcing steel. As the external Litecrete walls are one solid component, not layers of products as typically used in a timber-framed walls, you will never, ever have a leaky home problem.
