Introduction to FortisLite ALC Panel (Autoclaved Lightweight Concrete Panel)
Enquire about FortisLite autoclaved lightweight concrete (ALC) panel from Lian Wang, trusted ALC panel supplier in Singapore.
FortisLite Panel is a durable autoclaved lightweight precast concrete panel (ALC).
The brand “FortisLite” derives from the Latin word ‘FORTIS’ meaning ‘Strong’, ‘POWERFUL’, ‘Firm’ or ‘MIGHTY’.
The word Lite abbreviates from the word ‘Lightweight’ or ‘Light’. Together the words form the brand ‘FortisLite’ signifies the performance of our ALC Panel which is Strong & Lightweight.
The FortisLite ALC Panel has a wide range of both intrinsic & Extrinsic benefits as a building material compared to traditional masonry products.
Properties such as strength, acoustic, density, fire resistances and eco-friendliness are strong points of the FortisLite Panels. The customization and light weight density of the material allows for installation of a wall to be faster, saving on time and overall structural construction cost. Its unique properties of the AAC material such as thermal insulative strength allows it to help reduce energy wastages from elements such as cooling of a room.
The versatility of FortisLite Panel which can be manufactured in various length allows it to be used in a spectrum of non-load bearing construction applications. Please visit (www.panel.com.sg) for more information.
Autoclaved Lightweight Concrete Panel (ALC Panel), which are also commonly known as Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Panel (AAC Panel), are common masonry products used in construction of a wall. AAC is a lightweight material composed of silica sand, gypsum, lime and cement. They are manufactured with advance machine and technology which uses heat and pressure method known as autoclaving to cure. AAC Panel are generically lightweight due to the aeration process in the concrete during production allowing it to achieve a density of 520kg/m3. It is also reinforced with a two-way welded steel reinforcement mesh cage coated with anti-rust liquid for added durability. This ensures structural stability of the panel even up to 6000mm length.
There are several advantages to AAC material such as, thermal insulation, extreme fire resistances, high compressive strength and lightweight. Our AAC Panels has a suite of certification and accreditation from local test laboratory.
FortisLite Panel is manufactured from inorganic material, such that it is free from allergenic substance and toxic substance. The lower consumption of raw materials due to aeration during the manufacturing process also contribute to the environment. Furthermore, waste and materials from the manufacturing process can be recycled during the entire process.
Fire Insulation & Integrity
FortisLite Panel is non-combustible and has excellent fire rating properties. It is 4 hours fire rated and is suitable for fire-rated applications. The porous property of the material also makes it heat up significantly longer and slower compared to other masonry materials.
FortisLite Panel has excellent thermal insulation quality, the inherit material makes it a superior choice as an insulation material due to its thermal resistances properties. It takes less energy to cool or heat up the material which make it a smarter choice to meet stringent eco building requirements.
FortisLite Panel net dry density is up to 3 times lighter than traditional concrete building materials. This in turn translate to easier handling and transportation during installation of the material. Furthermore, the lightweight of FortisLite Panel means there may be cost savings from the reduction in structural and foundational requirements for high-rise buildings.
The robustness and porous properties of the FortisLite Panel acts as a sound insulation and absorption barrier that is able to deliver excellent performance in sound and acoustic insulation. FortisLite Panel is able to achieve superior sound transmission cancelation of up to 50 STC when finished with plastering & skim to deliver quieter building quality.
FortisLite Panel is manufactured to the most stringent of ISO quality management system with German Technology. This process ensure that the panels has durability quite similar to concrete and is imbedded with corrosion coated steel-reinforced mesh for added degree of strength, durability and security.
