WeatherPan is a prefabricated sandwich panel designed for external and internal non load-bearing partition applications. Its weight is only 1/5 to 1/7 of traditional 120mm block wall, which greatly reduce the foundation costs and transportation costs and is suitable for fast track construction techniques with simple erection. The panel is easy to install and no skilled labor is required. On average, an experienced labor can install 25 m2 panels per day which is 15 times quicker than traditional block wall erection.
WeatherPan provides the benefits of masonry wall without incurring the additional costs of labour and time in wet trade plastering. The panels when joined together not just provide a smooth surface to receive skim coat but also maintain an excellent integrity of the partition making its impact resistance 1.5 times better than that of traditional block wall. A 75mm thick panel will provide the required fire rating, acoustic performance, water tightness and physical strength of a 120mm block wall which in return increase usable area by minimum 5-10%.
WeatherPan is 100% free from asbestos or sepiolite and is a breathing panel which helps in condensation control. The board is manufactured to ISO 9001 quality management system and ISO14001 environmental management system, and has obtained the Green Product Label Award issued by National Environment Protection Bureau.
WeatherPan comprises of 5mm thick WeatherPro.-L fibre cement / calcium silicate board facings with WeatherCore which is a lightweight concrete mix of Portland cement, expanded polystyrene bead aggregates and admixture. The sandwich panel is 100% free from asbestos or sepiolite and the manufacturing process including mixing and casting are fully controlled by a central processor.
WeatherPan is designed with tongue and groove jointing systems for easy assembly. The panel provides exceptional dimensional stability and an unrivalled resistance to movement due to effects of moisture or heat. When subject to fire attack above 12000C, the panel wall provides fire resistance up to 3.5 hours without loosing integrity and insulation and will not emit toxic gas. The panel is immune to insect and will not support fungal growth and is unaffected by sunlight and steam.
When construction of curved wall or where using precast WeatherPan units are limited, WeatherPan-S, a field applied panel system with in-situ grouting of WeatherCore can be erected on site. It has the same performance as WeatherPan. Please contact the technical department of Soben International for further details.
