Millings for Wall Panels
Wall panels are milled along their edges to suit various construction conditions and appearance using standard profiles. They may be chamfered or fluted on one or both faces. Following are various shapes of wall panel millings:
Applicable for WV, groove to be filled with cement-sand grout (1:3), providing rigid connection between panels as well as connection to the foundation through steel anchorage and next upper floor through steel dowel bars and ring beams.
Tongue & Groove
Applicable for WV, usually for non-load bearing external cladding or internal partitions where central groove for grouting is not applicable. Also commonly used for boundary walls using WH fixed at the ends to the supporting columns.
Can be applied for both WV & WH in combination with Central Groove or Tongue & Groove for architectural purposes. Depth of flute can be 25 mm or less. Standard distance between flutes is 100 mm center to center.
Used in combination with Central Groove or Tongue & Groove where plain wall surface is required. Fiberglass tape fixed with our special adhesive, Gesol, along the joints will be necessary prior to application of wall finishes.
Chamfered Corners (one or both faces)
Also used in combination with Central Groove or Tongue & Groove where joints between panels are required to be visible, forming V-grooved joints. This is appropriate for Siporex wall panels used as claddings to a framed structure.
Fiberglass tape will not be necessary where chamfered corners or V-grooved joints are provided.
