Solid construction (monolith) is one of the most popular and effective directions for construction. The technology of monolithic construction is the preparation and delivery of concrete (M200-400 marks), preparing various types of formwork, reinforcement devices and proper concrete placement for the erection of any structural elements. When creating a concrete unit on site the process of monolithic construction is simplified and accelerated.
Thus, when constructing a monolithic building technique used a single casing for the entire floor. It provides the perfect flatness of surfaces at home - they are ready for any finish.
The technology is effectively used as a monolith in the housing and in the construction industry.
The advantages of monolithic construction
- High speed construction of buildings and structures;
- High strength and toughness of monolithic reinforced frame structures;
- Low permeability;
- Monolithic construction provides a virtually "seamless" design;
- Durability (more than 150 years);
- Increased thermal insulation and sound insulation (especially in comparison with panel houses);
- a minimum probability of formation of cracks in load-bearing monolithic structures (uniform load transfer and settlement of the assembly);
- The ability to create architectural structures of any shape;
- Any possibility of alterations in monolithic homes without risk of bearing structures;
- Step designs in solid construction does not matter;
- Solid brick building is easier to 15-20%;
- Walls and ceilings ready for finishing (cheaper finishing);
- the construction of the monolith creates a single horizontal and vertical waterproofing of high quality, which is especially important in damp soils;
- cost of erection of formwork and monolithic structures.
This technology is a monolithic casting is recommended during construction of:
- Manufacturing and industrial buildings;
- Trade and exhibition centers;
- Multi-storey car parks, garages, car repair;
- Cargo terminals and aircraft hangars;
- Low-rise and high-rise residential buildings;
- Reservoirs, treatment plants;
- Swimming pools;
- Monolithic country houses, cottages;
- Fences, etc.
