Solid Wall

Panels are ‘stitched’ together on site at the joints by pouring a concrete grout into the reinforced joints of adjacent panels enabling continuity to be achieved. A small amount of internal decoration is required.This method of construction allows buildings to be erected faster than with using a conventional frame. Floor slabs are connected and grouted into the wall panels.The illustrations below show the typical connection details for solid wall and floor slab construction and does include Thermowall Insulated sandwich panels for external walls. Alternatively solid walls can be used on the external skin with insulation and the external façade fitted afterwards. Advantages of Solid Wall Construction:

  • Considerable savings on main contract programme and preliminary costs such as scaffolding
  • Factory controlled conditions ensure accuracy and quality
  • Greatly reduced labour on site
  • Excellent acoustic characteristics
  • Excellent fire resistance, Class 0, BS8110:Part 2 or to  Eurocode 2 Part 1-2
  • Immediate cosmetic finish, decor can be applied to faces as soon as the building is watertight
  • Environmentally friendly - minimal of waste on site
  • System can be used for modular construction enabling buildings to be erected quickly

Common uses for Solid Wall Construction:

  • Accomodation Blocks, Hotels & Prisons
  • Staircore and lift shaft walls
  • Housing
