Construction

Introduction

  • The 3D Construction Panel offers a new building method
  • A unique system used for construction – MODULAR PANELS
  • High strength and load bearing
  • Light weight (less than 20 kg per panel)
  • Fast and simple to erect
  • Flexible to architectural designs
  • Provides excellent sound and thermal insulation
  • Affordable and cost efficient method
  • 3D Construction Panels used exclusively or to complement traditional construction methods

Composition

  • A three dimensional welded wire space frame
  • With an expanded Polystyrene insulation core

Characteristics

  • No buckling and bending of panels
  • Simple bracing to hold panels in the required position
  • Easy fixing of rough frames for doors and windows
  • Simple and quick installation of utilities, etc
  • Unique strength and rigidity
  • Due to the three dimensional truss configuration
  • Diagonal truss wires welded to the wire mesh (cover mesh) layers on each side of the panel
  • That ensures the effective transfer of shear forces for full composite behaviourConstruction
  • The construction method is simple
  • Easy to understand
  • Is quick to erect
  • Light weight (less than 20kg per panel)
  • Cut quickly to any size or shape to suit architectural designs
  • easily cut to form door and window openings (it takes only minutes)3D Construction Panel vs. Pre-fabricated Construction
  • Concrete is applied once a building’s structure has been erected.
  • Widths of concrete are applied to both sides forming two layers of concrete
  • With a polystyrene core (one single solid piece, not shift able) serving as shutteringApplication of Concrete
    The concrete is applied to each side of the panel assembly:
  • either manually
  • or by shot Crete (gunniting)Uses
  • The 3D Construction Panel may be used for:
  • any kind of residential buildings
  • ranging from small, affordable houses
  • to upmarket homes, villas and condominiums
  • industrial buildings
  • boundary walls
  • use as curtain walls
  • or as ‘filler’ panels for metal or concrete frame structures.Advantages
  • Fast, simple erection
  • Erection within only a matter of weeks [instead of months]
  • High strength load bearing for walls and roofs
  • Elimination of additional beams and columns
  • Excellent thermal and sound insulation due to the locked-in-core body
  • Monolithic structure of the total building for high strength, with continuous reinforcement. Ideal for earthquake prone areas.
  • Economical use of materials
  • Minimizing concrete consumption, with uniform concrete thickness throughout
  • Long life of buildings of high quality
  • Complete design flexibility
