Lightweight Concrete

RESISTANCE AND LIGHTNESS

The structure of the lightweight concrete pod consists of a 6mm diameter wire-mesh reinforcement embedded in a 1.600kg/m3 concrete shell density. The standard wall thickness is 50mm + 10mm for tile finish. The external walls are ready for surface smoothing by the client in one of the following solutions: gypsum board, paint or wallpaper application. Holes for services, door and window openings are in accordance with the project design requirements.

The shell manufactured according to the regulations for prefabricated lightweight concrete pods is not a load-bearing element. The pod must be placed on 12mm (6mm + 6mm) thick rubber pads on each bottom corner of the pod and positioned directly on the building floor slab. The rubber pads facilitate vibration dampening and acoustic isolation. Any direct contact between the pod unit underside and building structure or construction surface is strictly forbidden.
