Unir dovelas de varilla 3/8” a la viga de fundación


Option 1:
Option 1: Join 3/8" rod voussoirs to the foundation beam. The rods should protrude 40cm from the foundation, so they can be attached to the panels. The rods should be placed at a maximum distance of 40 cm between each other.
Option 2:
From a floating slab, 10 cm holes, at minimum, are drilled and 3/8 rods are inserted using special epoxy for this purpose.The rods should be cut to 50cm so that 10cm. are inserted in the slab and 40 cm are inserted inside the panel. The rods should be inserted between the panel mesh and the polystyrene (EPS). To join them, construction wire is used. It is very important that least 1 inch of EPS is removed in the adjoining part of the rod, so that it can be completely filled with cement.
Unión de Paneles

Union of Panels

The panels must be joined by construction mesh which should be connected on both sides of the panel. The connection can be made using annealed wire or stainless steel staples. If structural panels are used, the vertical joints can be made out 4"x8' construction mesh, for horizontal joints, and semi-structural panels’ joints of, 8"x8" construction mesh is recommended. All corners should have a corner construction mesh on both sides.
Refuerzos de Buques de Ventanas y Puertas

Reinforcements of Windows and Doors

All rough openings must be reinforced with construction mesh to achieve greater resistance and avoid microcracks. This reinforcement is achieved by using zigzag construction mesh on both sides of the panel and on the entire perimeter of the opening as well as on its internal side. Additionally, it is recommended to remove 2" of EPS from its surroundings and replace it with mortar. In this way, the screws of the window or door frames will be properly secured.
Instalaciones Electromecánicas

Electromechanical Installations

The installations are made eliminating the EPS. Therefore, there is no limitation in the placement of the water pipes or electric cables on the wall. EPS can be eliminated by cutting it or with a conventional torch.


Plastering should begin until all the walls are properly plumbed and joined. Plastering must be done in two layers until it reaches a maximum thickness of 3 cm. The first layer is recommended to be approximately 1 cm or until filling the square grid of the panel. Subsequently, the use of "levels" is recommended to guarantee the correct plumb and final thickness of the wall. The second layer of mortar ends filling the wall until it reaches the desired thickness. Subsequently, the wall is simply refined until the desired finish is achieved. It is very important to do the proper curing of the walls for, at least, the following 7 days.
