|Residential Privacy Wall Specifications|
The Integrated Wall is a light weight wall system that is designed to replicate the look of a rendered masonry wall but without the cost and hassles. It allows the user to rapidly erect a masonry look wall and requires less infrastructure support i.e. cranes & heavy digging equipment. This translates to enhanced safety on site due to its light weight and ease of handling.
The wall is a completely modular system which ensures close to zero wastage, saving both cost and almost completely eliminating mess during construction.
The Integrated Wall System is comprised of composite fibre cement sandwich panels supported by a unique post system. The post system holds the panels in a rigid position whilst still allowing room for expansion and ground movement internally within the post.
When erected the wall displays amazing brick like strength.
All the panels are internally recessed to accept wiring for a number of different services. Lighting, Sound, Security etc...
Some advantages are:
Garden Walls - walls up to 3.0m
Technical Specifications Overview
The posts are designed and manufactured by us to our tight specifications from high tensile G550 material. This has been galvanized, dyna primed and coated on both sides with a special paint to enhance performance and accept all the modern acrylic coatings.
SHOT PUT TEST
TEST OVERVIEW: A 4kg Shot Put is dropped onto a supported panel and the deflection and impact damage measured and assessed.
Height: 3.0m drop IWS 75mm Sound panel supported as per installation method
Location test: IWS Factory NSW
Wall Type: Barrier Type Wall (75mm panel)
Deflection rate: 8mm maximum average depression depth.
Panel serviceability after impact: Still Serviceable
Panel structural integrity: Unaffected
Panel Repairable: Yes
The panel was both structurally and visually serviceable after the impact. No immediate repair was necessary & non-repair of the panel would not be detrimental to the performance of the panel's intended function.
LOAD TESTING (NT-DTC Requirement)
The walls will easily resist the impact of domestic life, ballgames bikes etc.
If the wall is accidentally penetrated it can easily be repaired by an over the counter exterior patching system.
An advantage of the IWS system over heavier alternatives is if struck at speed there are no dangerous and heavy shards to injure the public.
If a panel is damaged beyond reasonable repair, complete panels can easily be replaced in approx 15 minutes.
Flexibility is another key feature, the modular construction allows features such as slats, water features etc. to be incorporated into the walls thus allowing for the break up of long runs and to allow breezeways.
The IWS system is backed by a factory warranty of 7 years against faulty manufacture.
