• An area of +/- 7m of clear and level access is required around the building where slabs are to be erected.
  • This is not Elematic's responsibility.
  • In order to obtain a flush ceiling on brickwork, the load bearing wall must be level. Avoid internal walls being higher. If brickwork is not level, a mortar bed will be required on top of the brickwork.
  • Elematic will ensure V joints are straight.
  • As the panels are designed and manufactured specifically for your project, site dimensions need to be accurate to avoid delays.
  • Sand and cement for grouting between the prestressed panels are to be supplied by the customer. The actual grouting is done by the supplier.
  • Window and door openings in load bearing walls up to 1.8m wide can normally be spanned by lintels side by side with five courses of brickwork with brick force in every course for slab spans up to 7.0m. All openings and certainly wider than 1.8m must be referred to the engineer for detailing of additional structural steel beams where required.
  • Should a panel be required inside a building, a minimum entrance height of 4.5m high by 3.0m wide is needed, provided there is sufficient turning space for trucks.
