concrete is inherently resilient and provides excellent protection against high
winds, storm surge and flying debris, among many other high performance attributes.
It is often used in FEMA shelters, residential, institutional, public,
government and other structures providing protection and resiliency.
testing of precast insulated sandwich wall panels show that precast provide
excellent resistance against flying debris, which often become projectiles or
misses during a tornado or hurricane. Watch the video here.
