Did you ever think about why you should have a concrete wall? The thermal mass of a cement wall offers better insulation against extreme temperatures. It’s much better than metal walls, so concrete walls can help to maintain a constant temperature. It can also bring down the cooling and heating costs. The mass is so dense that the construction requires a very low level of insulation. Concrete construction offers durable walls. Also, there are so many rotting chances due to moisture, rain, diffusion, and the walls are not affected by termites.
The popularity of wall panels
Wall panel systems are now extensively popular throughout the UAE. Now the architectural world has experienced a lot of advancement for many good reasons. If you consider ROI, it has offered the best returns. Hence, it is easy to choose between cement walls and traditional construction. Lightweight is made up of an expanding agent which increases the mixing volume. A Lightweight partition wall panel.
The advantages of lightweight wall panels
Lightweight panels are used in prefabricated constructions in erecting various structures. The specialties of lightweight concrete are low density and better thermal conductivity. Shrinkage and creep for lightweight concrete are pretty high compared to the normal weight of concrete. This is considered while designing the structure.
Lightweight concrete can be either lightweight aggregate concrete, autoclaved aerated concrete, or foamed concrete. These lightweight blocks are efficiently used in building construction. Take a look at the advantages of lightweight aggregate:
- The panels have thermal properties
- Reduced foam work and propping
- Better resistivity to fire
- Least dead loads, save cost in laying foundations
- Saves in handling and transportation costs
Do you know what foamed concrete is?
Foamed concrete has a much lower density and is workable. This compact is self-compacting, can be pumped, and is self-leveling. This type of concrete fills the gaps in fuel tanks, culverts, and sewer systems. Sufficient thermal insulation makes foamed concrete ideal for concrete floors, sub-screeds, and filing under-floor gaps.
Do you know how a lightweight cement wall is formed?
The batching process is usually completed by using a ready-made mixture of concrete. The concrete is placed by a skip or a chute. Lightweight concrete is available by the pumping process but make sure that the mixture is not separated. If the mix is worth pumping, use natural sand. Its results in segregation in case over-vibration is applied to the cement wall.
Enjoy more savings
Invest in lightweight cement walls and save on life-cycle expenses. When lightweight concrete is used, you can start building and finish off a single unit and the entire laying operation. The array of textures, finishes, and colors ensures that you do not require any other wall covering. Greater durability means least repairs, no rusting or discoloration. You do not need re-painting and maintenance.
