Pre-cast Light Weight Large (PLWL) Panels for fast, durable and energy efficient construction. The technology addresses both the high demand for housing and disaster resistance.
Pre-cast light weight large wall and roof panels using Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) has inner core material to reduce the weight of panel of two third weight of conventional one, which also yield the thermal comforts. This light weight inner core is durable and suitable for all types of climatic conditions and regions.
The increase in population and migration from rural to urban areas will require the future cities to use smart real estate techniques for urban infrastructure development. Towards this, CSIR-SERC has developed and is continuing to develop Pre-engineered Pre-cast Light Weight Large Wall and Roof Panels for Mass Housing. The light weight panels have sandwich construction with expanded polystyrene as core and self-compacting concrete skins. The performance of these light weight panels have been evaluated for flexural, axial and seismic actions
