1. How do I assemble Cemwall panels?
Cemwall panels are designed for easy and efficient assembly. The panels feature a tongue-and-groove connection system, allowing for quick alignment and secure fit. Detailed assembly instructions are provided with each order, along with hands on training and a handbook. Our technical support team is always available to provide guidance if needed.
2. How do I pour concrete into Cemwall panels?
To pour concrete into Cemwall panels, create temporary bracing or supports on the exterior of the panels. Ensure that appropriate concrete pouring techniques are followed, including using a proper mix, and allowing sufficient curing time. Detailed guidelines on concrete pouring are available in our installation manual.
3. How are elevated slabs formed using Cemwall panels?
Cemwall panels are versatile and can be used to form elevated slabs. Additional temporary supports are utilized during the pouring and curing process to ensure the integrity and stability of the slab. Our technical support team can provide detailed guidance on the proper procedure for forming elevated slabs with Cemwall panels.
4. How are rebar patterns accommodated with Cemwall panels?
Cemwall panels are designed to accommodate various rebar patterns. Our spaces are 9.5 inches off center and have allotted slots for rebar to easily slide through and stay in place within spec during the pouring process elimating the labor extensive process of tying rebar. This flexibility enables efficient integration of rebar patterns into the construction process.
5. What thicknesses are available for Cemwall panels?
Cemwall panels are available in various thicknesses ranging from 4 inches to 36 inches to meet different project specifications. Please consult with our sales team to determine the most suitable thickness for your project.
6. What are Cemwall panels made of?
Cemwall panels are manufactured using a high-density 10,000 PSI concrete. This composition results in panels that are durable, fire-resistant, and offer excellent structural performance.
7. How tall can you construct with Cemwall panels? How many levels are possible?
Cemwall panels are engineered to provide exceptional vertical load-bearing capacity once rebar and concrete are installed allowing for an unlimited number of stories. The maximum height and number of levels achievable with Cemwall construction can vary depending on factors such as design, engineering, and local building codes. We recommend consulting with a structural engineer to determine the specific parameters for your project.
8. How does Cemwall compare favorably to block construction?
Cemwall offers several advantages over traditional block construction methods. It provides faster installation times, reduced labor requirements, improved thermal and acoustic insulation, and enhanced durability. Cemwall's prefabricated panels also result in precise dimensions and reduced waste, contributing to cost and time savings during construction. The finish is also smooth and much more appealing and easy to finish easily with a wide variety of finishes.
9. How does Cemwall compare favorably to Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)?
Cemwall provides a compelling alternative to Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) construction. It offers similar benefits in terms of energy efficiency, acoustic insulation, and durability. However, Cemwall's lightweight composite panels offer ease of installation, flexibility in design, and cost savings of labor and material.
10. How does Cemwall compare favorably to lumber construction?
Compared to traditional lumber construction, Cemwall offers advantages such as improved fire resistance, termite resistance, reduced maintenance, and enhanced structural stability. Cemwall panels are also not susceptible to warping, rotting, or decay, resulting in a longer lifespan and reduced long-term maintenance costs.
