System performances

The ACIA PANEL construction system offer considerable advantages such as: Thermo-acoustic isolation, fire resistance, seismic resistance and important gain in time and material. By adjusting the thickness of the panel we could reach the “A” classification category in construction.

Unbeatable advantages

  • Light Material
  • Easy to install – Fast construction
  • Fire resistant
  • Energy efficient
  • Lower utility costs
  • Earthquake Resistant
  • versatile – flexible design
  • Storms Resistant
  • Superior Strength
  • H.Q.E (High Quality Environmental standard)
Technical characteristics

A wire with high limit of breakage, FTK> 600 MPA,with an adequate ductility is employed for the production of the panels. The hot-dip galvanized steel is therefore protected towards corrosive processess.
The steel used for the wire of both meshes and connectors has the following reference standards:

1) Mechanical characteristics

TENSILE STRENGTH (N/MM2) YIELD STRENGTH (N/MM2) ELONGATION (%)
ø2,5 ÷ 750 ø2,5 ÷ 680 ø2,5 > 8
ø3 ÷ 700 ø3 ÷ 600 ø3 > 8
ø3,5 ÷ 600 ø3,5 ÷ 550 ø3,5 > 8

2) CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS
% C < 0,24 % P < 0,055 % S < 0,55 % CEQ < 0,52
3) Zinc covering

T The zinc covering is variable with the diameter of the wire mesh. Standard mesh wire is with 2.5 mm using 60 grams/sqm zinc covering with a tolerance of + / – 5 grams.

The concrewall single panel used as bearing element is finished on site thought structural plaster application on each side. the standard final thickness of about 3 cm. the panel will form a plate of reinforced concrete with expanded polystyrene core. the structural plaster will have mixed choosing sand with granulometry from 0 to 5mm and final resistance of at least 200 ÷ 250 dan/cm2, variable according to the structural panels and geometry building conditions. the plaster should have a plastic consistency s2 (measured settlement with abrams cone less than 5cm).
For standard dosage in one cubic meter of Mass, The Indicative Quantity of each Material should be:

  • Concerte 350 Kg
  • Sand with Mixed granulometry 1600 Kg
  • Water 160 L

the quantity of water may be different according to the natural sand humidity.
the following parameter that should be constant:
A/C ~ 0,52
I/C ~ 4,5
The sand quality should be without clay or any organic substances and totally washed.
Any problems of workability must be solved without adding water, and using fluidifying additives dosed according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
The retraction cracks formation can be avoided by adding polypropylene fibers into the mix (one kg per m3).
