Falling in Love with Xi Panels
According to the calendar, this is the week to celebrate love … in all its many stages.
At Superior Walls, we continually hear that builders are falling in love with our popular XiTM precast concrete wall panels.
“Choosing an energy-efficient precast Xi concrete foundation can help ward off heat loss and make the basement a more comfortable area for extended living and storage space,” says Keith Weller, vice president and CFO for Superior Walls. “Builders recognize that our wall panels provide a dry and exceptionally energy-efficient foundation for a new home or commercial structure.”
Superior Walls Xi wall panels feature steel reinforced concrete and 2-1/2-inches of DOW® Styrofoam™ insulation to create a barrier against sidewall water penetration. The panels are custom designed and constructed in a factory-controlled setting. Unique features of the Xi wall panels include:
- 5,000+ PSI concrete
- Steel-reinforced top bond beams, concrete studs and footer beams
- Horizontal steel rebar inside top and bottom beams
- Vertical steel rebar inside each stud
- Insulated access holes for ease in wiring and plumbing
- Galvanized steel stud facing ready for drywall finishing
- Insulated corners, studs and bond beams
Here’s something else you’ll love. Superior Walls products custom manufactured off site in indoor production facilities, eliminating any on-site soil contamination such as the form oil used for poured walls.
Since Superior Walls panels are manufactured with insulated concrete studs, Superior Walls reduces the amount of materials used to build a structure, including wood and concrete, and reduces the carbon footprint of a new home or commercial facility’s construction process. The panels are delivered directly to a jobsite where certified crews install the precast wall panels … and homeowners fall in love with their new basement foundation system!
