Why Xi Plus?
When you’re ready to build your dream home, you need a dream foundation. That’s why we offer Xi Plus™ precast concrete foundation systems.
For most people, a foundation equates to a basement setting. People want extra living and storage space, and that often comes in the basement. To gain that space, you need a foundation that is reliable, energy-efficient and damp-proof.
The Xi Plus provides a more comfortable area for extended living and storage space. The wall panels provide a dry and exceptionally energy-efficient foundation for a home. Plus, during the design stages you have the opportunity to create openings for windows and doors!
Our Superior Walls Xi Plus panels feature steel reinforced concrete and 5-inches of 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 Plus wall panels include:
- When provided with 1/2″ of polyisocyanurate insulation and 4-1/2″ of rigid foam insulation, Xi Plus wall systems manufactured in the U.S. have a cavity insulation value of R-21.3.
- The wall panels provide R-values that meet or exceed energy conservation values from both the IECC and the IRC, and the Xi Plus wall panels can help in the construction of an ENERGY STAR® qualified home.
- In Canada, the Xi Plus wall system is provided with 5” of Neopor rigid thermal insulation with a cavity insulation value of R-23.
- Four insulated access holes are included in each standard stud to provide greater ease in wiring and plumbing.
- The Xi Plus wall system also comes with a four-inch insulated bottom footer beam. A standard 4″ thick floor slab may be poured equal to the height of the footer beam, eliminating the need for an additional screed board, saving time and money in the construction process.
Made of 5,000+ PSI concrete, Xi Plus walls feature galvanized steel stud facing ready for drywall finishing. Insulated corners, studs and bond beams enhance the energy efficiency of the system.
When it’s time to build your dream home, remember to ask for the dream foundation. Xi Plus precast concrete panels can really help make your dreams come true.
