New guide on specifying concrete sandwich panels released


To assist specifiers, builders and engineers with using sandwich panels, National Precast Concrete Association Australia (NPCA) has produced a new handbook about their design, manufacture and application.

Insulated precast concrete sandwich panels have been around for years, but according to NPCA, over the past decade, with people more conscious about sustainability, “the product has really taken off”.

The Recommended Practice: Precast Concrete Sandwich Panels, is a 46 page full colour guide which explains their thermal and acoustic performance, architectural considerations, structural design and detailing, as well as information about their manufacture and installation.
