Traditional construction methods have proven to be vulnerable to hurricanes and high winds. Our precast concrete wall panels are made with a special combination of high density concrete with a low water to cement ratio and fiber mesh. This special mix, along with steel rebar and wire mesh in the walls, provides exceptional strength to withstand the winds of a Category 4 hurricane.
To ensure that our product is safe and durable against natural disasters, our precast concrete wall panels have undergone a series of large missile impact tests. These tests were performed by an independent testing lab in Orlando, Florida and are conducted by launching a 4-foot 2” x 4” block of wood from a cannon that is aimed at a single concrete wall panel. This test determines the exact level of impact that each wall panel can withstand. The tests yielded impressive results: 2 by 4s that were fired out of a cannon did not penetrate the wall, even when the pressure was cranked up to its most powerful setting of 296 miles per hour – zero failure. As a result, our wall panels have been certified as an actual hurricane-resistant product.
