Concrete and Masonry Wall, Roof and Floor Panels, Structurally Load bearing
Since 1961, Speed Fab-Crete has specialized in a structurally load bearing, precast, high strength concrete wall panel building system. Architectural panel applications and various veneer finishes, including a precast, thin brick system, are among numerous options offered by a proven leader in the American precast concrete manufacturing industry.
A proven precast, high-strength concrete building system produced in a certified manufacturing plant environment.

Other specialty finishes
Our precast concrete wall panels are fabricated in thickness as required for the specific project and typically in widths of 8 to 14 feet and in various lengths. The panels have steel channel along their perimeter complying with ASTM A 36. The panels are reinforced with bars. When erected, the wall sections are welded to each other at the steel frame and to a base plate embedded in the building's foundation. Special engineered mix designs allow for use of lightweight or normal weight concrete with compression strengths up to 6,000 pounds per square inch.
Storm-Tested and Still Standing
The precast concrete walls of five buildings, constructed by Speed Fab-Crete, remained intact during a devastating tornado which struck Fort Worth, Texas in 2000. None of the walls sustained structural failure despite 157-mile-per-hour winds.
Five buildings, with exterior precast concrete walls produced and installed by Speed Fab-Crete, were in the path of the 2000 Fort Worth, Texas tornado March 28. At each location, the walls remained intact. Three of the buildings re-opened within days despite total destruction around them.
At each building, the Speed Fab-Crete precast concrete wall system apparently was unaffected by the Fujita scale "F-2 category" winds up to 157 miles per hour. This is consistent with previous independent tests by the Construction Research Center at UT-Arlington. And, now an "F-2 category" tornado proved it.
It's A Fact
Precast concrete walls eliminate insurance problems. Structural precast concrete walls eliminate insurance problems and deteriorating exterior appearances inherent with stucco or exterior insulation foam systems (E.I.F.S.). Most professional liability insurance NOW excludes coverage for EIFS damage.
