stay in place formwork system for insulated and/or reinforced
concrete walls is a new generation in the ICF industry.
This panellized 3-dimensional formwork is now widely used
in the residential, commercial, transport and industrial
spheres for the construction of any insulated and non-insulated
formwork consists of the following components:
Standard (4’x8’) polystyrene
sheets (EPS or XPS) with thickness of 2”, 4”
Horizontal or vertical metal meshes that
space the polystyrene sheets.
Polypropylene caps that fasten the metal
meshes to the polystyrene panels.
The manufacturers of Armopanel™
perforate the rigid polystyrene sheets to facilitate their
assembly into the three dimensional module. Precise perforating
equipment is used for this purpose.
The three-dimensional module of the Armopanel™
formwork can be either assembled directly on the construction
site or ordered from the manufacturer in an assembly kit
of Armopanel™ components.
These modules are used for installation of reinforcement
and the erection of concrete walls in accordance with local
In addition to the plain Armopanel™
panels, there is a variety of other Armopanel™
panels available to the builder, including: Corner panels
(panels for the corners of the building), T- panels (for
intersection of two walls), brick ledge panels (concrete
ledge for support of various structural members).
The panels can be used for the erection of walls with concrete
thickness of 4” to 14”.
Special Armopanel™ connecting
meshes are used to link adjacent modules together and reduce
the number of vertical bracing. In addition, with the help
of these Armopanel™ connecting
meshes, a wall of any height can be erected.
In general, the Armopanel™ system is designed to prevent
bulging, twisting and warping of the concrete walls.
