PRECAST & ON-SITE TILT PANELS
PRECAST TILT PANELS
At Novatilt, we specialise in tilt panels and can meet your needs both with on-site tilt panels and with precast tilt panels. However, we are often asked about the difference between precast concrete panels and our on-site option.
In many situations, there is no real difference whether the tilt panels are precast or created on-site. However, there are sometimes aspects that can make a significant difference. On this page, we will look at some of the advantages of on-site tilt panels when compared to the precast option.
1. Size of the tilt panel
The main difference is that with the on-site tilt panels, we are able to make larger panels compared to the precast tilt panels as they do not need to be transported on the road.
Making tilt panels on-site means that there is no transport to site, making the process cheaper and more efficient.
3. Reduced costs
On-site tilt panels are cheaper to produce. There are no trasport costs, therefore no downtime for the crane or waiting for trucks to turn up. As we can make larger panels, joint sealing costs are reduced.
As we generally work straight off the structural plans, we can often get on-site tilt panels created and in place much faster than you can get precast panel shop drawings drawn, approved, panels made, panels delivered and then installed.
