Concretec’s teams of highly qualified engineering staff provide Value Engineering, Structural Design, Shop Drawings and Technical Support in all aspects of Concrete Structures Design & Detailing.
Our Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) products include:
PLASTBAU (POLYSTYRENE) METAL SLABS FOR CONCRETE FLOOR AND ROOF
The plastbau metal floor is a stay-in-place insulating concrete forming system for joisted concrete floors. This system is the result of several years of research, design and practical field experience. The result of all of this permits the set up of a continuous production line able to combine the insulating capabilities of the EPS with the metal insert.
Application features and benefits:
- Self Supporting.
- Thickness in dimension is tailor made.
- Variable insulation values are available
- No terminal bridging.
- Ventilation ducts are built into the panels
- Utility passages molded in.
PLASTBAU (POLYSTYRENE) TITL-UP WALL
Is a lightweight form used to create reinforcement concrete walls. This form is lightweight in two ways:
- Two people can handle each form
- It reduces the weight by replacing concrete with Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
Tilt-Deck’s patented forming system features and benefits:
- Self-Supporting forms eliminate need for a casting bed
- No bond breakers are needed, no sticking to slab
- Edges interlock with a simple tongue and groove design
- Standard panels for all wall heights
- Pre-cut in production to exact length for each product
- Form depths range from 18cm to 20cm to produce deep supporting ribs
- T-beam design reduces concrete by up to 30%
- Reduced concrete and weight allows for smaller cranes and bracing
- Panels can be designed larger for the same weight
- Reduced reinforcing steel means less weight and lower costs
- Panels can be lifted hard-side out or in, depending on clients’ need
- Panels can be stack-cast on confined sites
- Reduced panel weight enables single point face lift
- Panels can be site-cast or pre-cast off-site/ and trucked in
- Utilities can be placed in wall chases before the pour
