Construction ready-made walls materials can be generally divided into three types including bricks, blocks and panels.
As a new wall material, the lightweight wall panel can be used as an alternative to the traditional combination of solid brick, wall panels in combination with concrete are widely used in interior walls, exterior walls, ceiling panels, floor tiles and partition walls.
Lightweight composite wall panels are prefabricated and machine-packaged in factories, so they are precise and stable. Moreover, it can be sawed, straightened, drilled and nailed, so it can be assembled directly on site and then complete the construction.
Using lightweight wall panels as a building material can reduce labor intensity and reduce construction time.
These materials are characterized by several properties, including water resistance, moisture resistance and resistance to the expansion of freezing water, thus they comply with the Turkish standard specifications and do not contain toxic or harmful substances.
In addition, these materials have high fire resistance performance, so they are also used in all types of buildings and establishments, residential, commercial, industrial and administrative.
Polystyrene is our prefabricated wall material and this material does not have any reaction with fire to emit any dangerous or toxic fumes or gases. A high degree of fire resistance has been observed in the concrete foam and it is a cost-effective fire-retardant structural material that can be used in construction.
The reason behind this amazing property of concrete is due to the presence of the main ingredients being cement and polystyrene. Also, the combination of these materials in the walls produces an inert material that does not interact with fire.
In other words, the concrete material has a lower thermal conductivity value. This low value makes the concrete to conduct heat very slowly act as an ideal shield to protect the adjacent space and the materials themselves from damage caused by fire.
The production of fire-retardant concrete is no different from that of standard concrete.
Reducing cracking in concrete due to high temperatures is achieved by using polyester. This is thus a way to increase concrete’s fire resistance. At temperatures around 160 ° C, these polymers melt and create channels that allow the resulting water vapors to escape.
This process will help reduce pore pressures and reduce the risk of splintering or bursting
According to the Turkish standard specifications, our prefabricated walls take about 114 minutes of fire before collapsing.
