Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) consists of 95% air and the rest is made up of carbon and hydrogen. EPS offers unique qualities in lightness, strength, moisture resistance and safety of use and is now recognised internationally as an advanced alternative to traditional construction materials.Â Â
Light Gauge Steel Columns
Light Gauge Steel is used to provide rigidity to the EPS panels and is further supported by high quality steel columns and a ring beam that distributes the load of the roof. This combination ensures that walls are rigid, plumb and square.
Imison walls are finished with a high density, structurally classified plaster called Fibrecoteâ„¢. Fibrecoteâ„¢ patents are owned by Imison and it is exclusively used in the construction process of its structures. It is the only plastering technique of its kind and creates a chemical and mechanical bond between the EPS and the plaster. The mechanical bond is achieved by the unique velocity of the patented spray gun used in the application and the chemical bond because of the unique plaster mix used in Fibrecoteâ„¢.
