In a world grown accustomed to evolution, one remarkable building system is making a truly revolutionary Impact on global construction methods — the Green System.
Energy problem, environmental problem, climate problem globally, has already become the hot topic of today’s world.
In the all kinds of construction policies the Insulation building materials has became the first selection field of every country .Thermosteel Concrewall is one such modern Insulated building system now produced in Pune, lndia. Using technology and equipment by Schnell House Concrewall, Italy.
Concrewall is a tried & tested system (residential, commercial and institutional) for insulated buildings with theoretically unlimited no. of stories. The system is composed of a factory produced panel of undulated (wave shape) polystyrene covered both sides by an electro welded zinc coated high-strength square mesh, which In turn are connected by connectors realizing a 3 dimensional hyper static reinforcement steel. After erection the panel surface becomes the lightweight monolithic structure since all the joints are covered with same wire mesh.
The panels are assembled on site and in situ poured concrete (shear-walls, floors, stairs) and shotcrete (load bearing and partition walls) to construct a complete building.
The Idea is that the panel; completed with shotcrete; becomes the structural element of the construction. The profile of the polystyrene panel and the vertical wires of the mesh mats form micro-piles of reinforced concrete, distributing the weight of the structure around the entire perimeter. After Thermo steel Concrewall is not just a product but it’s a system by itself.
The system resolves difficulties of construction companies and developers; typically a ground plus 3 level building can be made with panels without RCC columns and beams.
The components of the Thermo steel Concrewall are simple.
A core of modified expanded polystyrene, flanked by wire mesh, connected with galvanized truss wires, field-coated with concrete. Yet, its extraordinary design flexibility, ease of installation, versatility of application, and astonishing strength are changing the way the construction industry sees the future.
The panels are exceptionally rigid and comprised of:
- Modified and wave shaped Expanded Polystyrene Core.
- Two Outer Layers of Welded wire Mesh, galvanized and Zinc-coated.
- Galvanized Truss Wires Pierce Core and are Welded to the Outer Mesh Layers at 40 points realizing a 3 dimensional hyper static reinforcement steel.
Material & Specifications
The Density of the EPS can vary between 10 to 15 kgs/m3 as per the kind of Insulation required depending on climatic conditions of the location .EPS used Is self extinguishing.
Standard sheet width Is 1200mm
It is made of galvanized, 2.5mm and 3.0 mm thickness.
Stress tension upto 700 N/mm2 8% elongation. 60 gms/sqm. Zinc covering.
Thickness: 35 mm on both the sides
Low Energy Bills
Requires less cooling saves AC bills to lead a Low-carbon Lifestyle by reducing energy consumption, thereby to reducing the carbon dioxide emissions. A low-carbon life, for us ordinary people is an attitude, not ability.
Peace of Mind
The building won’t come down even In Earthquakes or Tsunami Solid Steel Structure resists high pressure water loads and fire resistance tests prove the panels to be resilient to adverse conditions. No falling bricks.
The panels are proven to resist up to 8.5 Richter scale.
No need to wait for long periods for your dream home by using panels the construction time reduces to third
Lasts for Generations
It will stay strong for your grand-kids & their grand-kids! CONCREWALL is a very popular system world-wide, as it is a very secure structure and the building.
Durability: Long Standing Buildings
The use of galvanized steel, high-strength concrete and engineered structure ensures the building stands strong for generations – protecting families from earthquakes, storms, fire and other rough conditions.
Versatile & Variety of Finished Building
It can be used for every construction including residences and apartments. Especially. It is highly recommended for higher buildings for longer spans. The panels can be designed in a varied form without any professional knowledge, and fits for the round-typed materials as Increasing 10% carpet area/Indoor space as compared with masonry structure.
Insulated & Saves Energy
the EPS squeezing foaming polystyrene that is famous for the Internal thermal Insulation Is used and reduces the loss of heat. It also makes the comfortable Indoor space regardless of temperature variation.
Use of the high performance foaming polystyrene l00m/m of low absorptiveness, our Panel shows an excellent prevention against the condensation on the wall. (As for the usage of external wall, the exterior on the external wall needs the waterproofing mortar)
On the base of sound Insulation performance test, it has shown a distinguished feature of soundproofing among others. Especially, our system shows a heightened operation capability.
Easy & Quick Installation
As it is a standardized factory product, easy to construct, and allows us to execute the masonry, insulation, plastering at the same time, It surely reduces the construction time down to a third.
Up to 50% lighter than brick – our panels only weighs a quarter of the masonry wall, which alleviates the fixed load of structure and also highly recommended In the enlargement of old buildings.
Storm, Fire, Tornado & Earthquake Resistant
Solid Steel Structure resists high pressure water loads and fire resistance tests prove the panels to be resilient to adverse conditions.
No falling bricks —the panels are proven to resist up to 8.5 Richter scale.
Economical / Cost Effective
Thermo steel Concrewall panels are easy to execute and require only a few not-so-skilled man power; this curtails the construction expense.
The panel also boils down the framing expense as a lightweight material requires no heavy duty cranes on site, which is definitely economically effective.

Installation of Rebar Anchors
Anchor bars ore normally inserted before the pouring of the foundation. Alternatively It Is possible to drill holes in the existing slab and then anchor the bars with an approved system.
Installation of the Panel
Thanks to their lightweight, a single operator can easily lift and place the panels where required. This is another factor that contributes to the labor savings of the Schnell System compared to traditional techniques.
Immediately after the placement of the panels, the perfect linearity and verticality of the walls is checked and ensured.
Preparation for Electrical and Plumbing
A hot-air gun or torch Is used to create channels In the polystyrene for the placement of switch boxes, electrical conduits, cables, pipes, etc.
Installation of the Floor Panel
Once the floor panels are placed, supported by the walls and from below, any necessary additional steel reinforcement is installed and the concrete is poured.
Application of Shotcrete
both sides of the walls of the Single Panel are sprayed with shotcrete and subsequently finished with plaster.
