UHPC

UHPC (Ultra High Performance Concrete) aka reconstituted stone is a 15, 20 or 30mm thick panel. UHPC is concrete & is typically is made with high-strength steel fibers, fine sand, cement, fly ash, a large volume of SF, and a low amount of water. The panel is cast into moulds, the moulds can be generic for flat panels and custom for project specific requirements. Generally, this product will be used in large format sizes up to 3000mm x 1200mm.

Key Features

Fixing Methods

Undercut Anchor (Primary) – Panels come to site predrilled with an undercut hole to allow an anchor to expand into when fixed on site with hanging clasps. The clasps then allow the panels to be secured to a horizontal carrier rail then locked into position.

Kerf (secondary) – This method is for panels up to 1200mm x 600mm in size as it is more cost effective. The kerf fixing is a gravity based fixing method. UHPC panels arrive at site with a 3mm wide x 13mm deep channel grooved into the top and bottom edges, the channels are retained mechanically with our TI Tracking horizontal rail carrier system.

The TI tracking system compromises of horizontal carrier rails, an EPDM anti rattle gasket and divider clip designed to keep uniform vertical joints across the building. The TI Tracking is set out according to the panel module heights on site before any panels are delivered to site. The larger the panel height the more cost effective the system is.
