Green, insulated and affordable
The insulating formwork Plastbau 3 is a pre-built, rigid, easy to install and fix building element. The two high-density expanded polystyrene sheets, which fulfill the function of containing the concrete casting, remain in place as a thermal insulating layer with overperformance, both external and internal.
From 90 to 400 cm
The height of the EPS sheets can vary inside and outside and can be customized according to the project.
From 5 to 25 cm
The thickness of the EPS sheets varies depending on the need of insulation.
The standard panel is 120 cm wide, 300 cm high and weighs 22 kg. It can be easily manipulated and installed with no need for lifting equipment, just by hand.
One of the great advantages, in addition to energy saving and anti-seismic resistance, is the laying speed which, from the unloading from the truck to the end of the concrete casting, can vary between 15 and 20 min per m2 of wall.
Depending on the project, panels can have different thicknesses, to ensure a greater level of thermal insulation. The internal panel is generally 5 cm thick, whereas the outer one can change from 5 to 25 cm. The Plastbau 3 system is a complete construction system, designed to facilitate installation and the entire construction phase, reducing construction times by 40% compared to traditional systems.
Our H200 machine can produce up to 50 square meters of Plastbau 3 wall per hour. The plant is divided into the part of iron processing, that is the preparation of the metal ladders which would be put inside the two panels and form the structural base for the concrete casting, and the part of moulding of EPS. The iron reinforcement is welded into the EPS and in the final phase, the plastic caps are positioned and screwed, creating the finished panel.
It appears to be extremely efficient for the construction of zero energy buildings as indicated by PASSIVE HOUSE or MINERGIE HOUSE, as prescribed by Directive 2010/31 / EC which provides that by 31 December 2020 all new buildings must be “Almost zero energy”.
The Plastbau 3 System, taking advantage of the EPS insulating coeficient, allow you to build zero energy buildings which can perfectly adapts to all climate.
Is a low cost construction method.
Saving on construction time, construction tools and products costs, you can decrease construction costs up to 40%.
Thanks to its iron armour and to the high quality of the EPS, the Plastbau 3 is anti-seismic level 1 and resistant to climate elements
Thanks to the fast and simple laying of formwork panels and concrete casting, the Plastbau 3 Wall system allows you to reduce constructions time up to 70%.
Both with extreme heat or cold, the Plastbau 3 Wall garantees maximum insulation, allowing a total savings on energy costs.
