A Brief Overview of Concrete Wall
Concrete walls have become the preferred choice of homeowners and architects when considering building materials for their construction projects. This is because of its flexibility, easy installation, and cost efficiency.
Concrete walls (Also Known as “ ผนังคอนกรีต “ in the Thai Language) are now widely used to make schools, office buildings, hospitals, hidden systems, and parking garages. Some are used as column cover, while the others are extended panels that combine window openings.

These materials can be produced in almost all colours, shapes, textures and are finished to achieve the user’s desired appearance. The exterior surface can vary anywhere from the aggregate finish that displays ornamental details, to the unit with a textured form liner or sand blast explosion.
They can also be reinforced using a ribbed panel with a thin exterior shell or with foam insulation. They can even be customised during the order process so as to complete the door and window openings, brick edges, and steel beam bags.
Usually, there are four general types of concrete walls that are used as part of the building envelope. They are cladding or curtain panels, load bearing units, sliding models and formwork for cast-in-place.
