BUILDING COMPONENTS

A VERY CONCRETE APPLICATION

A VERY CONCRETE APPLICATION
These are single panels that are integrated with traditional reinforced concrete structures as the external wall cladding, partition walls and floors. The advantages are the speed of application and the excellent insulation properties. By varying the thickness of the panel it is possible to reach a classification of the construction of Category A - Passive House.

CONSTRUCTION SYSTEM:
BEHIND THE WALL, SPEED AND STRENGTH
The idea is that the panel completed with shotcrete becomes the structural element of the construction. The profile of the polystyrene panel and the vertical wires of the mesh mats form micro-piles of reinforced concrete, distributing the weight of the structure around the entire perimeter.

1 - INSTALLATION OF REBAR ANCHORS

Anchor bars are normally inserted before the pouring of the foundation

2 - INSTALLATION OF THE PANEL

Thanks to their lightweight, a single operator can easily lift and place the panels where required.

3 - POST INSTALLATION

Immediately after the placement of the panels, the perfect linearity and verticality of the walls is checked and ensured.

4 - PREPARATION FOR ELECTRICAL AND PLUMBING

A hot-air gun or torch is used to create channels in the polystyrene for the placement of switch boxes, electrical conduits, cables, pipes, etc.

5 - INSTALLATION OF THE FLOOR PANEL

Once the floor panels are placed, supported by the walls and from below, any necessary additional steel reinforcement is installed and the concrete is poured.

6 - APPLICATION OF SHOTCRETE

Both sides of the walls of the Single Panel are sprayed with shotcrete and subsequently finished with plaster.
