Energy-efficient AG Wall Systems from Superior Walls offer a fast way for builders to construct above grade building applications for houses and commercial projects.
Superior Walls®, a leading manufacturer of energy-efficient precast foundation systems, now offers precast concrete wall panels specifically designed for use in above grade applications. The AG™ Wall Systems allow builders to use the panels in stacked applications to create multiple stories of construction.
AG Wall Systems have already been used in numerous projects, including the creation of a high school, a yoga center, shopping centers and a wide variety of homes. Each Superior Walls panel is custom made to the specifications of an individual project, including built-in openings for windows and doors. Pre-engineered access for wiring or small plumbing elements along with smart stud facing for easy drywall installation are included and help speed up the construction process.
“Superior Walls precast concrete wall panels are a fast, efficient way to construct a home or commercial project,” says Jim Costello, president of Superior Walls. “Our AG Wall Systems provide an energy-efficient way to construct an entire building from the ground up.”
Superior Walls introduced AG Wall Systems to bring the strength and energy efficiency typically found in Superior Walls foundation systems to above grade building applications. AG wall systems are pre-engineered at Superior Walls facilities and custom manufactured for the specific needs of a project. The walls are delivered to the job site and installed within hours of arrival.
“A conventional wall structure with block and wood framing can take weeks to create,” says Costello. “When using AG Wall Systems, you can achieve that same framing in just hours on the job site with many energy-efficiency benefits.”
The insulated concrete AG Walls are produced at Superior Walls by Weaver Precast of Florida in a factory-controlled setting in Orlando. The walls are used in above-ground applications and are watertight, termite-resistant and help reduce noise infiltration into the home.
The top-of-the-line Xi wall panels feature steel reinforced concrete and 2-1/2-inches of DOW® Styrofoam™ insulation to create a permanent 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
- Horizontal steel rebar inside top and bottom beams
- Vertical steel rebar inside each stud
- Steel-reinforced top bond beams, concrete studs and footer beams
- Access holes for ease in wiring and plumbing
- Galvanized steel stud facing ready for drywall finishing
- Insulated corners, studs and bond beams

I just wanted to share another type of construction that you will start to see more of as people become greener and more concerned with being energy efficiency
