Light Weight Insulating Concrete (LWIC)
Cell-Crete Corporation has been installing Light Weight Insulating Concrete Roof Systems since 1970. Once installed, the LWIC will last the life of the building. This unique system includes low density concrete (less than 50 pcf dry density) encapsulating specially designed expanded polystyrene board. This partnership creates positive slope and required R-Values protected for the life of the roof. LWIC is approved by both Factor Mutual (FM) and Underwriting Laboratory (UL), with multiple designs for Fire and Wind Uplift ratings.
The big shopping mall, movie theaters, hospitals, Vegas casinos, hotels and resorts built in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s using LWIC have all been re-roofed more once as per their maintenance schedule without any added costs of removing the LWIC. No need to send all the demolished insulation board to the already full landfills and create a larger carbon footprint from waste trucking. It is an Eco friendly product.
As 99% of LWIC is made with cement, eps board and water, which contains recycled material and it last the life of the building: “LWIC is not only Green, it is Ever-Green”
Cell-Crete Corporation is the largest installer of LWIC in the western United States.
