Knife River produces a wide variety of ARCIS products, ranging from stair treads to decking to rainscreen cladding. As one of only five licensed ARCIS producers in the nation – and with a dedicated ARCIS manufacturing facility – our team excels at crafting durable, lightweight panels to help beautify projects of any size.
ARCIS products allow the project to have the look and versatility of conventional precast concrete at a fraction of the weight. The patented ARCIS system uses stainless steel prestressing in lieu of conventional reinforcement. Panels can be as thin as 3/4”, depending on the application and loading.
