Passive House - Green Building System

The PLASTBAU ®-5 Wall is produced by our H-200 machinery line. It’s composed of two EPS panels spaced from each other by built-in reinforcing steel bars. It’s our most advanced technological solution of insulating stay-in-place formwork, with no thermal bridges, for external and internal bearing walls. It allows the quick and safe realization of anti-seismic and high energy-saving, passive buildings.


Height: from 900 to 4500 mm
Thickness of EPS: from 50 to 250 mm
Width: 1200 mm


Weight: 13 kg/m2 (dep. on thickness)
U-value: from 0.175 to 0.086 W/m2K
Temperature range: -40°C to +50°C

The width of the panels is standard, 120 cm, while the height can change depending on the project, with the possibility of differentiating the internal height from the external one. The weight of the panels is such as to be moved by hand, 39 kg for a panel H 300 x 120 cm, two people are enough to move it without additional space for lifting machines. The panels are laid side by side to produce a rigid structure ready to receive the concrete casting and create an armoured concrete structure.

Depending on the project, the formworks 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 30 cm. The PLASTBAU ®-5 is a complete building system, designed to facilitate installation and the entire construction phase, reducing construction times by 40% compared to traditional systems. It is the perfect product to build affordable houses, villas and buildings, with high quality material, passive standards and at an affordable price.

Our PLASTBAU ® H-200 machine can produce up to 50 square meters of PLASTBAU ®-5 wall per hour. The plant is divided into the part of iron processing, that is the preparation of the steel ladders which would be put inside the two panels and form the structural base for the concrete casting and the moulding of the EPS panels, directly welded with the steel ladders to create the final formwork.

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 nZEB (nearly Zero Energy Building).


The PLASTBAU ®-5 System, taking advantage of the EPS insulating coefficient, allows to build Zero Energy Buildings which can perfectly adapts to all climate.


Saving on construction time, tools and product costs, you can decrease construction costs up to 30%.


Thanks to the fast and simple laying of our formworks and the pouring of concrete, the PLASTBAU ®-5 Wall system allows to reduce constructions time up to 40%.


Thanks to the built-in reinforcments iron bars, the PLASTBAU ®-5 Wall can guarantee the maximum seismic resistance, with certification to Level 1 seismic zone.


Both with extreme heat or cold, the PLASTBAU ®-5 Wall garantees maximum insulation, allowing a total savings on energy costs.
