The 3D Structural Panel
was created over 45 years ago in Austria by the EVG Company and today is used all over the world.
It is a thermo-acoustic insulated panel construction system that is fire-safe, earthquake-safe, hurricane-safe, and termite-safe. Both innovative and versatile the system is built with prefabricated stay in place panels that are easily configurable, simple to erect, and fast to construct.
At the heart of the individual panels is a super-insulated energy efficient core of rigid expanded polystyrene (EPS) sandwiched between two-engineered sheets of eleven-gauge steel welded wire mesh face sheets that are welded together with the aid of 9-gauge cross wires that diagonally penetrate the interior foam to create a single monolithic structure. The diagonal cross wires are positioned 4 inches on center creating multiple strength-enhancing wire trusses in each panel. When concrete is applied, by any method, the panel becomes a structural load bearing insulated wall system - a THREE-DIMENSIONAL lightweight panel that is one of the strongest building materials you can find.
The two steel re-enforced concrete faces provide tensile and compressive strength. The EPS core separates and stabilizes the cement faces against buckling under edgewise compression, torsion or bending. It also functions as a thermal and acoustic insulator protecting your privacy while keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
It offers a cost-effective building alternative to traditional building methods. It is the ultimate answer for home owners and businesses who wish to create a truly earthquake safe, fire safe, hurricane safe, and termite safe structure that lasts indefinitely – easily spanning multiple generations.
3D Structural Panels are used for residential as well as commercial construction.
