The exterior wythe will act as a barrier from the elements and protect the insulation from any damage.
Concrete sandwich wall system.
The thermomass building insulation system complies with section j of the bca and is a fully integrated highly energy efficient insulated concrete sandwich wall system.
The solarcrete insulated concrete wall is the most energy efficient wall systems available in the world.
Sandwich walls are insulated solid facade elements consisting of two reinforced concrete shells which incorporate separating insulation layers made of polystyrene rock wool or other approved materials.
Precast concrete wall systems offer a wide variety of shapes colors textures and finishes to the designer.
The process begins with exterior wythe pour and the placement of the insulation and connectors which happens simultaneously.
This structural wall system is also often referred to as a sandwich wall a concrete sandwich panel wall or icc wall insulated concrete composite wall.
Sandwich panels consist of two thin shells of high strength concrete bonded to a core of rigid low density insulation.
Concrete sandwich panels are built from the exterior of the wall to the interior of the wall.
The two outer shells can be cast solid around their external edges so that the core is completely enclosed.
It is common to design the sandwich wall by assuming that the interior layer of concrete resists wind seismic and or roof loads while the exterior layer provides only physical protection for the insulation.
The porous stone wool insulation helps the concrete sandwich panels dry quickly meaning decoration work can be started earlier.
The insulation may also be extended to the panel edge if desired.
A wide variety of concrete sandwich wall system options are available to you such as project solution capability design style and panel material.
