Residential Panels

Make a statement with a beautiful precast concrete home.

Residential building with precast concrete is proving a popular choice for architects. A practical and efficient process for construction, building with precast concrete means much of the complex processes happens off-site, reducing build times.

Not just walls, precast concrete is a flexible solution for floors and even roofs.

The advantages of building with concrete are many, including:

  • Speed of construction
  • Supply not weather affected – reliable
  • Services such as power, water, data precast into concrete panels
  • High thermal mass, providing energy cost saving benefits
  • High level performance acoustic separation
  • Durable and low maintenance
  • Resistance to fire and flood
  • Wide range of available finishes

All panels are manufactured to a Class 2 off-form finish in accordance with AS3610.1.

Decorative Inlay Panels

Decorative concrete panels create the unique look and visual interest that can bring any application to life.

Using rubber formliners, precast panels for any application can be inlayed with decorative patterns, shapes or textures, even pictures and murals.

The process for creating decorative precast concrete panels involves large rubber formliners, where the pattern is negatively imprinted thus creating the mould. Laid at the bottom of the precast bed and sprayed with a release agent, once the concrete cures the form mould peels away cleanly leaving a perfect imprint of the desired effect.

Although only limited by your imagination, some styles include:

  • Geometric patterns
  • Brick and masonry
  • Rough textures
  • Timber look
  • Rock and stone
  • Ribs and waves
  • Antislip

Curved Panels

Curved precast concrete panels create a statement for any building or structure.

Hunter Precast have perfected the casting of curved panels and have clad some of Newcastle’s icon structures using this impressive technique.

Most radii can be accommodated for, and decorative inlays can be added for further effect.

Polished Panels

Polished concrete is a versatile and attractive surface. Polishing precast panels can be a clever way to achieve this look in an even larger range of applications.

Polishing concrete insitu in a vertical wall application can prove extremely difficult or impossible, this is where precast can really shine.

Through our supplier Hunter Readymixed Concrete and sister company Hunter Quarries, we have access to a huge range of aggregates and aggregate mixes to create any look. In addition, we can create samples to view so that you are confident in achieving the desired outcome.
