Battery system for sandwich facades installed in the Philippines

Project information

Location:
Philippines

Customer product:
Facade elements for skeleton construction

Project description

A new battery mold with 10 pockets for the production of fa├žade sandwich elements was installed at our customer's site in the Philippines in 2023.

The customer uses it to produce 2.72 metre long and approx. 60 cm high fa├žade elements for use in skeleton construction. The walls are sandwich elements with insulation, that is topped up with 3 cm of lightweight concrete on both sides. This makes the elements light enough to be carried by two people without the need for any tools.

The walls have either a tongue and groove or, in the case of the edge elements, a groove and smooth finish for assembly on site. This profiling is created in the mould by the base formwork, which can be rotated by 180┬░ as required, and by the cover, which closes the battery pocket from above after concreting.

Concrete filling is carried out conventionally from the top.

This customized solution demonstrates the wide range of possible applications for RATEC battery systems. In this case, a battery mold was required for very small and light elements, but battery systems for elements up to 9 metres length and 4 metres height are also possible
