What is SlenderWall Architectural Cladding?
SlenderWall is a hi-performance, thermal and fire code compliant, architectural panel system that combines proven technologies into a single efficient solution for new construction, re-cladding or over-cladding.
Part of what makes Slenderwall the benchmark against which other precast panels measure themselves are the technological benefits inherent in the system. SlenderWall’s extensive pedigree of engineered perfection makes it the top contender for precast architectural cladding on your project.
For a quick overview, watch our video.
SlenderWall’s precast concrete cladding systems provide the lasting value that architects, general contractors and property owners/developers demand. Our exterior cladding system benefits are widespread and it starts with durable and cost-efficient features. Precast concrete wall panels by SlenderWall are produced throughout North America and have been designed and installed for mixed use, multi-family, schools, office buildings, hotels and many other commercial, municipal and residential structures.
The value of SlenderWall shows itself throughout the design, delivery, installation and settling processes. Our precast concrete cladding systems are economical from the start with a focus on cost and quality efficiency -- a major advantage with any precast concrete product. With over 3,000,000 square feet of exterior cladding systems installed, SlenderWall concrete panels are over 66% lighter in weight compared to traditional architectural precast concrete. This results in expedited delivery and lower costs allows for smaller cranes to lift the panels into place.
Quality control is at its highest possible level during the manufacturing process. Because all concrete wall panels are produced in climate-controlled factories as outdoor temperatures, snow, rain or heat do not alter the curing process.

A Wide Variety of Precast Concrete Finishes
Design flexibility is achieved by choice of aggregate & cement color, size of aggregates, and finishing processes. Precast concrete can mimic a wide variety of man-made & natural finishes while providing long-lasting durability and cost-efficiencies. Bump outs, reveals and detailing are only limited by your imagination, including multiple looks on the same panel. PCI’s Color & Texture Guide lists 24 colors & 500 textures. What's Trending – Formliners and Photo Engraving. Surface textures, patterns, and shapes, can be achieved by casting with formliners. A large pattern plays with light & shadow. A fine texture offers subtle elegance. Dozens of unique patterns are available and innovative custom designs are created by utilizing CAD & CNC. Photo engraved formliners can turn your façade into a canvas. Photos are converted into a file for the CNC-cutter. Possibly an even more compelling attribute is SlenderWall’s thermal qualities, providing support in overall efficiencies of your total building design, allowing you room to experiment.
