Zenon Panel is the most convenient insulated wall panel system. It eliminates brick and insulation costs.
Zenon Panel assembly is faster than conventional systems due to the lack of an extra wall insulation process.
Provides design freedom
Zenon Panel cage is given the desired shape and offer a wide design freedom. Requested architectural form can be created easily and without mold, provide great cost and time saving economy.
Zenon panel is very lightweight (4,5kg / m2). thus, greatly contributes to reduce the wall load which is the biggest load for buildings. The earthquake resistance of buildings with less weight increases. Also, thanks to the downsizing the sections of foundation beams and columns, the cost of the reinforced concrete building reduces.
Saving the area
Traditional wall causes a loss of about 20 cm wide in all fronts. Because it built on the floor. The lost area corresponds to 5-10% of net usage area of the building. Zenon Panel doesn’t reduce the use of area because It mounted outside the building. In this way it is obtained a wider interiors and the economic value of structures increases.
Excellent thermal and sound insulation
Zenon Panel provides high heat and sound insulation due to contained in 7.5 cm – 8.5 cm – 10.5 cm thick polystyrene (EPS). It saves on air conditioning costs. it keeps coolness in summer and warmth in winter.
Zenon Panel insulation board, remains between meshes and concrete slabs and is not exposed to outside influences. Thereby insulating ability does not disappear during the life of the building. In the conventional facade insulation system it is short-lived compared to the life of the building and must be done again.
Zenon Panel help of its special steel cage is very durable and strong. Also the entire structure shows feature a monoblock structure because the wall and roof panels are connected to each other and anchored to the floor. Monoblock structures are stronger against the earthquake and wind load than the structures made of column and the beams. Therefore, Zenon Panel Building System is highly durable and strong structure system.
Not affected by the storms
Zenon Panel subjected to 200 km / h speed wind load tests in accredited laboratories. It has been certified to have over performance as required strength by the standard.
Safe against earthquakes
Thanks to high load bearing and distributing capability of reinforcement truss, Zenon Panel allows for safe structure against earthquakes. Not only pressure, is quite durable against torsion and shear load horizontal loads. Zenon Panel wall absolutely indestructible during earthquake because it is anchored to the building’s structural system.
Saving the cost of lintels and beams
Lintels and beams are not required as in the conventional walls.
Wastage does not occur due to be cut and or added to desired sizes. Furthermore does not occur any casualties during the shipping or transporting the panel.
Practical electrical installation and plumbing
Water and electricity installation are very practical. Basically installation pipe is passed through the gap between the wire and Styrofoam. No need for operations such as cropping shear coupling as in traditional wall.
No need to special mastership
Installation of the panels is quite simple. It can easily be mounted by construction workers.
