» PREGUNTAS FRECUENTES
1- Is it possible to install underfloor heating?
Of course you can install it. There are two possibilities:
The first one is the traditional method. Above the slab panel we would be placed a polyethylene sheet which lifting up the walls to prevent that moisture affect the partitions, the nodules panel and the screed. This option is not the most recommended in a dry system, but is feasible and provides the inertia to the floor.
The second option is a dry underfloor heating system. This is a underfloor water heating where the screed is replaced by an aluminium diffuser system. The thickness is usually less, dry and it works more like instant heating that by inertia
2- Is it possible to build in height? Is there any limitation?
It is possible to build in height, the only limitation will depend on the structure that we use.
3- Is it possible to cover the chases with plaster without using cover plates or wrapping?
At work, the chases are covered with grip paste for plasterboard. When the passes are wide, before applying grip paste, you could take polyurethane foam filling and then cover with grip paste.
Actually the cover plates are used in panel edges or when there are many facilities in the same spot.
The use of tape is a extra guarantee to the works, so does not occur shrinkage between grip paste and the adjacent panel.
4- What is the difference compared to other wood/veneer sandwich panels on the market?
The main difference are in the choice of materials and in the assembly system. As to the materials:
- Contrary to the metal veneer, Tabiclick panels allow the building to "breathe", preventing condensation and discomfort.
- Unlike wooden panels, Tabiclick panels have a dimensional performance stable, without significant fluctuations depending on the moisture, avoiding installation complexity and cracking on finishes.
As for the system assembly, is simply fast and flexible to fit any project.
5- Why do you clad simple facade solution?
This solution corresponds to the enclosure CPY+LY and it could provide us a suitable energy efficiency.
Thermally a CPY facade panel amount to a traditional facade made by double brick wall with air space and outer plaster. The fact that the facade wall was complemented with plasterboard cladding and mineral wool is because to get an energy efficiency improvement by obtaining a 0,29w/m2K thermal transfer when normal is 0.41w/m2K. It also facilitates installations passes without chases or reducing insulation.
The same goes for the cover; it could be left without false ceiling, only taped and painted, but we could get better thermo acoustic performance with the ceiling. In addition, every structure has to meet a established fire resistance rating, and the ceiling is an effective and fast way to protect it.
6- How are the horizontal installations passes? Is possible that, when we build up the wall, these installations passes have continuity between the panels either by positioning errors or differences in manufacturing?
Is an option that YPY interior panel has pipes. By proceeding with an industrial process, manufacturing differences are millimeter, and the mounting system could achieve continuity at works.
For repetitive projects, we can provide effective and studied in detail solutions, in addition to saving time execution on site, avoid any waste.
7- The weight of the panels, is it a problem at work site?
The panel placement is always done by two people, and the yields obtained by people without experience in placement are:
slab ... 100 m2/day
external walls .. 60 m2/day
internal walls ... 45 m2/day
In addition, this weight does not require heavy auxiliar support and the crane of a truck could be a simple support.
8- Have there been any environmental and energy efficiency studies?
It had made energy efficiency testing by approved laboratory Tecnalia. In terms of environmental efficiency is a matter of construction waste management.
9- Opening holes in building site seems laboured. Is there possibility that holes and chases will be made at mill?
It could be made a planning of works and send the panels with to the mill. But the panel is easy to cut and holes could be done with a simple template. This method allows to adjust fully to the final dimensions and work protect from the weather even if they are not made the windows.
10- What load capacity do they have if you hang kitchen cabinets, etc?
These data appear in the multiple tests that have been made and be available on our website.
11- Is there only one 2600*1240 format? This could generate a lot of waste.
No, there are several formats that you can see in the data sheet of each panel. However, the panel is an element that can work easily in mill or at the job site to maximize cuts.
12- By using the polyethylene with closed cell, I believe that the housing would be waterproof to the steam, and it could occur condensations, isn't it?
First of all, specify that the insulating material which we use is not of the polyethylene but the polystyrene. Besides, the steam resistance factors of used materials (10 for the plaster, 150 for the polystyrene and 113 for the cement), are very lower than the values of collectively used materials as steam barrier. To verify the steam behavior of facades, they were feigned by following the standard EN ISO 13788, with the strictest conditions of Spain, Burgos, according to the RD 314/2006. You will find the results on the specifiers page, and can verify that there are not condensations for the hygrometric classes 3 and 4. In class 5, yes, they can occur, but this type of place already requires the installation of a waterproof cover, which plays the role of steam barrier and eliminates the risk of condensation.
