Gorkha Eco Panels are made up of a mixture of expanded polystyrene beads (EPS), cement, water, sand and bonding agents and using calcium silicate board (non-asbestos) as sheathing. Silicate board will increase strength, seismic and fire resistance and heat, sound and moisture insulation properties. Gorkha Eco Panels are available in 60mm, 75mm, 90mm, 120mm, 150mm, 180 mm and 210mm thicknesses. The average density of the panel is 600kg per cubic meter. Custom sizes are available upon request.
The main structure consists of ordinary concrete and Gorkha Eco Wall Panels are used as the interior partition and exterior walls. The Panel being lightweight provides excellent anti-seismic property compared to ordinary brick walls and has excellent heat and sound insulation. Reduction in the dead load (by 2/3rd) of the building results in lesser quantity of structural components to be used.
In this type, structural and light weight steel frame is used with Gorkha Eco Wall Panels as the interior partition walls and exterior walls. Together with the steel structure the panel constitutes the structure’s anti-side force system and greatly reduces the structural steel consumption for the building system. Gorkha Eco Panels used as the exterior walls will effectively stop the thermal bridge.
In this type, one storied buildings are constructed entirely with Gorkha Eco Panels and the panels themselves are used as exterior walls which are also load bearing structures. The foundation work required will be lesser due to usage of light-weight panels. Partition walls and Roof are also made of panels. Using panels for the roof provides excellent thermal and sound insulation compared to corrugated steel sheets.
