The EnvirOcast family of walls starts with the EnvirOcast Basement and EnvirOcast Above Grade
Residential walls. The walls are suitable for use in single family & multi-family residential
applications, as well as light commercial applications.
These walls are offered in a variety of heights including 9'-3 5/8", 10'-0", 11'-0", 12'-0",
& 13'-8", with custom sizes available to meet your project specific requirements. These
walls can be adapted to a variety of light commercial applications as well, such as storage,
office building, warehouses, etc. Rather than being a fixed product limited by design,
the EnvirOcast Residential Walls are dynamic and can take on many shapes, forms, & functions.
The wall structural system consists of reinforced vertical & horizontal integral concrete
studs & "bond beams" that provide vertical & horizontal flexural & shear capacity to
meet all National, State, & local Building Codes. Wire mesh reinforcing may be added
to enhance in-plane shear capacity.
The insulating properties are achieved by a core of EPS insulation. R-Values vary depending
on actual configuration, but typical values for the 9'-3 5/8" and 10'-0" walls are 23,
while the 12'-0" wall comes in at R 19.2. These values make these walls very attractive
when considering the 2012 Energy Code requirements for walls.
To add to the value of the system, 1 5/8" or 2 1/2", 20 gauge metal studs finish out the
inside of the wall, making it ready to receive the wall finish. The wall may even employ
a no metal stud application in some cases. Theses wall have been tested for UL1715 burn
testing and achieved a passing score.
In addition to the benefits mentioned previously of strength, durability, insulating value,
& integral metal studs, these walls excel in speed of installation. Being precast they
can be manufactured in plant controlled conditions while excavation is being performed
on site, allowing for immediate installation of the walls. Most typical basements can
be set in a day's time as opposed to multiple days or even weeks like masonry or poured
in place walls. In addition the plant controlled conditions allow for tighter tolerances
and sharp, clean lines.
The EnvirOcast walls system allows for several other important features including brick ledges,
slab support ledges, beam pockets, & treated wood framing around window & door openings.
The ship lap joint design & high strength concrete offer excellent damproofing qualities.
Other precast accessories can be provided like footings, headers, columns, etc. for special

above grade walls on top. We can provide pre-stressed hollow core slabs for floor applications
