Pre Cast Panel Product Description

Turning your backyard or patio into a chef's paradise is easier than ever thanks to Walttools’ modular panel system. Building an outdoor kitchen using traditional construction can take weeks and comes with the high cost of labor. However, constructing an outdoor kitchen using this all modular precast panel system can take as little as a day. This could reduce budgets by 50% allowing this outdoor living space to become a reality for many more clients. This patented panel system of lightweight concrete panels allows for many stock configurations as well as the ability to create a full custom design.  This system works in unity with your choice of outdoor appliances and countertop materials, including granite, stone and the the Z Counterform countertop forming system which gives you many options for edge profile looks.

The interlocking panels are 32” tall and 4” deep.  They are made using a poly-concrete hybrid design and weigh a fraction of what solid concrete would weigh. The magic is in the dimensions. Panels interlock both in linear and perpendicular fashion making set up a breeze. They can be handled easily and currently come in two lengths, 48” and 32”. This provides flexibility in your design and allows for a multitude of configurations.  Each size offers two variations to ensure a varied look. The panels slide together and are secured with an internal insert that will hold them in place.  Cut-outs for appliances are easily made with a skill saw according to the plans provided. 

Once the base is set up, you can install your top surface, or pour your own. Once the countertop is complete, a final tuck pointing is done to the seams where the panels join and panels are stained to the final look desired. Total custom look in far less time.

Nathan Giffin was officialy introduced January 18th at the World of Concrete event in 2008.    I was a guest artist at the artistry event opening eyes and doors to the Vertical Artisans concept. This is a site designed to illustrate the methods, styles, and techniques of stone facing. I had been developing the site from 2006 - 2007.   I wanted to offer an incredible aid to fellow artisans who had a desire like I did for this craft.  Giving artists something that I did not have many years ago was in fact a great personel goal of mine.    Having access to the rare data that I so desperately searched for but could rarely find was the primary goal.  To this day I still record all my projects and innovations that are added to the site almost as soon as I complete them. I have no desire to stop adding value to my site.  Welcome and enjoy the art of Hand Carved Vertical Decorative Concrete.
