Formwork system for load-bearing wall

The Carbon ED SYSTEM System allows to realize a resistant and optimally insulated wall, in a single passage.‎
It is a constructive system in blocks-formwork of expanded polystyrene (EPS), to be assembled dry, and to be cast in place.‎
Designed to create reinforced concrete walls, integrates, in a single solution, the mechanical resistance of concrete with the thermal insulation properties of polystyrene.‎

In fact, Carbon ED SYSTEM realizes in a single phase:
- Anti-seismic carrier structure
-Thermal insulation

The structure is in reinforced concrete, will have sept 15, 20, 25 or 30 cm depending on the static and structural needs, and the insulation is guaranteed by two walls of EPS with a minimum thickness of 5 cm, which can reach up to 15 cm, perfectly in solidarity with each other.‎ Our worst structure ensures a noise reduction of 53db (we reach up to 63 db of abatement), are therefore suitable for use as dividers between real estate units, (the standard provides in fact a reduction of at least 50db).‎ At the thermal level, our combinations of structures start from a transmittance of 0.‎ 31 w / m2k with a wall of 25 cm, and reach up to the value of 0.‎ 10w / m2k with a wall of only 45 cm! Unimaginable values ​​on traditional structures!

Our building system is particularly recommended if you want to build buildings in compliance with earthquake regulations, with those relating to energy saving and acoustic insulation, while maintaining small wall thicknesses, but above all containing construction costs.‎

Further details
The system consists essentially of 2 components, EPS panels (of various thicknesses), and plastic spacers (also available in various types of thickness). These components are separated, to be assembled on site, and then 100% recyclable.

The various geometries of the spacer allow a multitude of wall types. In fact, concrete thicknesses ranging from 15 to 30cm are foreseen, and insulation thicknesses varying from 10 to 30cm. Moreover, by combining panels of different materials (graphite or white, it is possible to create hundreds of different combinations able to satisfy any request from the client or the designer.

You have to see this system as nothing more than the evolution of the yellow wooden carpentry panel, where the EPS panel is the yellow panel, and the plastic spacers are the metal spacers that join the iron propellers.

The panels in EPS, therefore have the dual function of:
-Contain the concrete casting in a fluid state, protecting it and making it mature and work in a protected environment, and thus raising its structural properties;
-Coibent the masonry, in fact thanks to the total 10 cm of EPS of the basic structure, (which can be up to 30 cm), provide a thermal insulation without equal, as well as protecting our home from the cold with the external panels, the internal one makes not that heat is unnecessarily dispersed to heat the masonry.

Plastic spacers perform a triple function:
-Guarante the structural soundness of the formwork during casting, (performing the function of the metal spacers in the formwork with wooden panels, for the casting of walls in reinforced concrete), not making "open" the formwork;
-Facilitate the laying of the vertical and horizontal iron, no binding is necessary, spacers, thanks to their housings (absolute world patent), make sure that the iron does not move during the casting of the concrete, and remains there where the structuralist wants both;
-Facilitate the laying of the internal plating drywall, in fact the spacers, are placed with an interaxis of 30cm in the vertical direction, and 20 cm in the horizontal one (infectious up to 10 cm pitch), and allow to respect the interaxis of the slabs of plasterboard, allowing you to rotate them without ever skipping the anchoring step. The slabs will be screwed directly to the supports drowned in the wall, without expensive additional metal structures.

A solid building must also be economical to manage and offer a high level of environmental comfort.

In a period in which the sensitivity of public opinion has increased, with regard to environmental issues and building safety, it has become essential to use a constructive system capable of achieving the highest quality standards.

The whole system was created in order to minimize the possibility of errors during installation. It would have been much simpler to think of a complicated method so that it could only be used by a few select companies. We preferred to turn to a multitude of construction operators, even without having a sophisticated and expensive equipment.

The program provides for the use of fully codified materials and techniques, each interpretation wrong is practically impossible. Summing up, here are the success factors of the Carbon ED SYSTEM: A Modular System, with a minimum step, only 2.5 cm! Total reversibility of the elements! The panels can be mounted either inside or outside and in a normal or overturned way. It allows for absolute architectural versatility, including curved walls and angles of any grade. High energy savingAntisysicalAcoustic insulationAd High environmental comfortCostituted by Certified Materials and TechniquesOur system consists of totally recyclable elements, the panel does not contain any material inside, such as plastic or metal, which prevents grinding and therefore the reuse of EPS. This aspect also applies to the floor element that has no molten material inside, just to guarantee 100% recycling.
It is simple and fast, it is the Carbon ED SYSTEM.
