And what is a "Lock Wall"?-- appeared in a English book about surface repair of concrete structures. Any info are welcomed. Regards Tsaur@Taiwan >> In a nutshell, tilt-up construction is usually a type of construction where first the slab-on-grade is poured and allowed to cure to a certain strength. Then the concrete "tilt-up" walls are poured directly on the slab. Once the walls reach adequate strength the walls are then lifted or tilted by a crane into place. (Thus the term tilt-up.) In addition to the tilt-up walls there usually is a panelized roof system of girders, purlins and subpurlins (2X4 or 2X6 @ 24"oc) with a wood roof diaphragm. These buildings are easy and cheap to build and normally are used in industrial areas. And I'm not sure what a "Lock Wall" is. I hope this helps!
