The building process
Before delivery of the panels, the ground floor will be marked according to the tehnical drawing.
The Ytong panels are colour labeled and unloaded according to the floor plan: the panels are unloaded where they are needed.
The manual installation trolley matches the size of the panels; using it greatly reduces the required manpower.
The panels are glued together with mortar. which is easily put in place with the spreader and an installation jib.
The panels are light, yet strong enough to build up to four storeys high.
Horizontal panels are used above windows and doors.
Ytong panels can easily be cut using a manual or electric saw.
Ytong floor and roof panels are unloaded and put in place using a crane with a special clamp.
finishing the construction it is very easy to make grooves for the electrical system. Even by hand.
To fill grooves and gaps in the walls and smoothen the walls, we deliver mortar for a perfect result.
