using the BETONYP building boards for cladding, instructions for the
base material should be taken into consideration.
5.3 INTERNAL CLADDINGS
grey coloured BETONYP building boards can be used for creating several
kind of internal claddings which are designed, machined to dimensions,
and finished according to the requirements of the final utilization.
Applicable as room divider
industrial and communal infrastructures
social institutions as an aesthetical and fire
protective cladding, thermal insulation, airborne sound insulation, and
protection against vapour diffusion.
Applicable as supplementary element for interior decoration like:
side-rails for staircase, aesthetical accessories
aesthetical covering for pipe fittings and cables
FLOOR COVERINGS, STILTED FLOORS FOR COMPUTER ROOMS
Mechanical properties of BETONYP building boards offers a wide range of
utilization, such as replacement of concrete base layers or information
of stilted floors for computer rooms.
product the BETONYP PLUS fibre-forced building board can offer many new
possibilities for application. One side of this board is reinforced with
a fibreglass-polyester net of high tensile strenght. When bending stress
occurs this fibre net situated in the section of tensile load.
Therefore tensile strenght of the building board is significantly
cover floors or replace concrete base layers boards of standard sizes
can be applied or prefabricated and custom-made boards can be prepared
with a supplementary insulating layer of several types of materials and
Finished floor elements can be applied for:
moulded or light-weight building methods.
dwelling-houses, living rooms
public institutions, rooms with warm floor
buildings, office rooms
Advantages of application for floor coverings are as follow:
the weight of construction can be minimized,
fast implementation, excellent sound and heat
provides an ideal under-plate for parquet floors, PVC
floors, and broadloom carpets,
offers a building method not requiring additional
water content to avoid the unintended damage of existing constructions.
coverings made of BETONYP building boards should be designed to meet the
requirements of the final utilization of the construction and mechanical
properties of building boards should be taken into account.
Physical and mechanical properties of BETONYP building boards allow
their utilization as a covering material for assembly tunnels hidden
above suspended ceilings or under stilted floors of computer rooms.
case of utilization for the above-mentioned applications the following
aspects should be taken into account:
Thickness tolerance of the BETONYP building boards
can reach +- 1,0 mm. Therefore application of products prepared with
justified sanding is offered.
Thickness and dimension scale of the required
elements determined by the supporting frame system.
Further mechanical properties
recommended to be taken into account are:
- general strenght properties,
- creep of building boards due
to bending stress,
- equilibrium conditions for loading of boards.
BETONYP boards meet the former requirements and possess the needed
dimension scale can be finished and cladded according to the customer’s
requirements with material appropriate to create anti-static walking
5.5 ELEMENTS FOR SUSPENDED CEILINGS
proper design of the construction the BETONYP building boards can be
offered as a cladding material for suspended ceiling systems.
Using suspending elements the following applications can be made:
unaccentual suspended ceiling with hidden fixing
accentual or jointed suspended ceiling with visible
field of application can be wide because of the properties of system
elements and of the construction. Applicable for intermediary and roof
ceilings of any building to create plane and horizontal suspended
ceilings with the following functions:
Occasionally the functions of application are multiple:
fire pretection with the insulation of airborne
insulation of airborne sound and decoration.
building construction should be designed according to the mixed
requirements and mechanical properties of either the other components
and of the BETONYP building boards as a main component should be taken
5.6 SELF-SUSTAINING WALL AND PANEL CONSTRUCTIONS
the building industry the application of light-weight constructions
spreads widely, and gets gradually accepted, even more in certain areas
their application is essentially required besides the traditional
solutions. The possibility of a fast implementation and the relatively
low expanses are the main reasons for this tendency.
small segment of the application and utilization possibilities of the
BETONYP building boards has been introduced by the previously mentioned
solutions. In light-weight architecture this product has a significant
role during the creation of the different kinds and types of wall
constructions and building board systems.
Regarding the function of the wall construction the following
applications are offered:
external and internal load-bearing walls,
roof and ceiling constructions, panel constructions,
other supplementary constructions and panels.
Regarding the construction the following types can be created:
intermediate and large panel constructions,
constructions mounted on a frame,
frame-constructions mounted on the spot.
The BETONYP building boards can be mounted on the following frame types:
the frame construction itself made of BETONYP
building boards, too.
above-mentioned constructional solutions can be applied to construct
several kinds of buildings on a wide range from communal institutions
and industrial facilities through sheds and hangars to dwelling houses.
to the building process these constructions should be designed according
to and in compliance with the requirements proceeded from the final
utilization of the building. During the design procedure all
instructions referring to the application of BETONYP building boards
should be strictly observed.
important to study what kind of other materials will be applied during
the construction and whether the contractor staff will have the required
skill and expertise to work with these materials.
Mechanical properties and main features of both the BETONYP building
boards and the other base materials should be taken into consideration
in order that constructions can be developed in a functionally and
technologically correct way. Therefore the expedient design procedure of
the construction has a special importance.
Building constructions may have so called secondary functions as well
which depends on the environment they are intended to be built in or on
architectural and regional regulations must be complied.
Regarding the secondary functions the construction can be an additional:
accordance with experience of several years it can be stated that
architects familiar with mechanical properties of BETONYP building
boards have designed and built several constructions meeting all those
requirements – even special ones too – which are to be taken into
special physical properties which can be provided with the application
of BETONYP building boards:
- Accounting on thermal properties energy saving
constructions can be designed according to requirements of our days.
Constructions with excellent coefficients of thermal
conductivity and heat transmission can be designed.
- Good critical values of fire resistance can be
reached with expedient board constructions.
- Regarding the high density value of BETONYP
building boards they can be used for acoustical applications too,
but principally in constructional forms.
Design of special constructions has to be inspected by assigned
authorities in any case.
6. Additional information on
constructions made of BETONYP building boards
When building a construction
applying BETONYP building boards, some of the final skilled works has to
be accomplished in a different way than it is usually made and a special
care is required.
the following chapters some of these skilled works requiring special
expertise and care will be introduced.
6.1 BRICKLAYING OF CHIMNEYS
the roof a hole for the chimney-shaft must be prepared during the
construction of the building. The roof structure must be evolved not to
contain any break through the load-bearing beams, and this rule has to
be taken into consideration during the design and the implementation
the brickwork of a chimney it is an important instruction that the
chimney-shaft must be placed at least 10 cm far from the wall-boards.
The chimney-hole in the roof and the wall-board around the chimney-shaft
must be covered by asbestos boards.
placing a stove or a fireplace by the well-boards, a similar procedure
of construction must be followed.
heating device is recommended to be built in the same room the
chimney-shaft, on the contrary the smoke outlet has to be led to it
through the light-weight structure of the wall.
6.2 ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS
building structure the horizontal and vertical electrical cables must be
led in standard plastic wall-tubes of a diameter of 23 or 16 mm.
Preparation of holes for sockets and fittings:
Socket holes can be prepared using a special borer with a diameter of 68
mm designed expediently for sinking socket holes. The applicable sockets
– type UGD 60 is recommended – should be placed into these holes.
plastic sockets with 60 mm of diameter and also 60 of depth can be
mounted from only on side of the wall in order that aesthetical fittings
can be applied. The fastener tongues of UGD 60 flush-mounted socket
provide firm fixing to boards with 8-30 mm of thickness.
building structure can be selected by the customer, but it is very
important that electrical installations must be accomplished with a
special care and expertise.
During the setting of spot, halogen or other type of lights can be
flushed into the roof or ceiling, the instructions of the manufacterer
should be applied with special attention to technical conditions that
can occur at these constructions.
6.3 BUILDING CONSTRUCTIONAL WOKS
6.301 Hot and cold water supply
constructions made of BETONYP building boards a plastic conduit-pipe
system can be applicable for providing both hot and cold water supply.
main advantage over steel pipes is that the flexibility of plastic pipes
ensures that they can be flush-mounted into the light-weight wall
construction without crossing any vertical frame-rib.
fittings can be found at the ends of the pipes the plastic water pipe
can be led in an intubation tube with a diameter of 23 mm in any place.
Installation holes for flush-mounted pipes and fittings can be prepared
using carbide tipped disk saws with cutting depth adjusted to 12 mm or
other cutting tools can be used such as compass-saw or socket-place
borer used at electrical installations.
Leading pipes through the roof or a wall-board, a metal or PVC sleeve
must be placed into the hole as a liner.
up on the wall:
Equipment with weight above 5 kg (basin, WC, flush-box) can be firmed on
the wall by using a steel plate with a thickness of 2,5 mm which must be
mounted direct to the wall-board.
plate size and the fixing position on the wall should be defined in
order that the plate can be connected to two frame-beam at least.
6.02 INSTALLATION OF HEATING SYSTEMS
heating of buildings made of light-weight construction principally the
application of central heating is recommended (with radiators or by
Preparation of wall break-throughs and installation of fittings are
similar to of water supply described in the previous chapter.
radiators for heating purposes the application of flexible mild steel
pipes is recommended. The mild steel pipes envoloped with double plastic
liner are perfectly corrosion-resistant. Therefore on the ground-floor
the pipes can be sunk in the base concrete without any heat insulation
and on the upper floors the pipes can be flush mounted into the
floor-aligning BETONYP boards having a thickness of 20 mm under the
the ground-floor and technics of construction and installation of the
floor-heating system equals to the generally applied flush-mounting
technics using cement-aestrich.
case of built-in upper stories, because of restrictions derived from the
construction, only dry building technics can be applied for
flush-mounted floor-heating. One solution is offered by the application
of heating lamellars and an other by the application of radiating
laying the heating pipes the construction must be covered with a BETONYP
board with 20 mm of thickness so as to avoid the harmful overloading of
the plastic pipes by the walking surface and active load.
As a covering for the walking
surface broadloom carpet, plastic covering, and tile covering embedded
in flexible adhesive can be recommended.
