Monolithic frame house: what we know about it
Over the past decade, monolithic frameThe construction has acquired the status of the leading technology in house building. The new technology makes it possible to implement the most complex architectural, spatial, constructive and town planning tasks. Now it is the most promising and profitable among all existing technologies for erecting buildings and buildings.
Monolithic frame house is built by means oferection of structural elements from a concrete mix by means of application of special forms which are called shutters. During the erection of buildings, they are installed, then the steel frame is assembled from the reinforcement, and then the concrete mix is poured. After solidification, the formwork solution must be disassembled.
Features & Benefits
Thanks to the seamless design,monolithic frame house is not susceptible to the appearance of cracks and is easy to maintain, has high sound insulation and heat-saving properties. The draft of the building is uniformly distributed with the same load distribution throughout the perimeter. The erection of the foundation will be cheaper, because the frame house weighs less by 15-20% than the similar one, built of brick or stone. And the property of concrete to gain increasing density over the years makes such buildings very durable. Their service life is almost 200 years, because the older the concrete construction, the higher the density of the walls.
Monolithic frame house is less influencedprecipitation due to the lack of joints inherent in the panel houses, which are justifiably considered their weak point. The whole work process takes place on the construction site when using concrete pumps, feeding the mixture to a height of up to 100 meters, as well as to hard-to-reach places. This facilitates the production cycle, as it excludes the intensive use of heavy equipment, which is necessary for the erection of panel houses. In addition, with high-quality work execution, wet processes are not required: ceilings and walls are practically ready for subsequent finishing.
Erection under adverse conditions
Due to its technological featuresmonolithic frame house has a high resistance to man-made and other adverse environmental conditions, and also has good seismic resistance. In the presence of complex geological factors, for example in earthquake-prone areas or on subsidence grounds, the frame house is one of the optimal options. In conditions of water-saturated soil, this technology is the only one that allows you to build a house with a basement under the condition of waterproofing works.
According to experts, at the moment, amongbuilding technology is nothing better than a monolithic frame house. Disadvantages of it, if they arise, it is only because of the incompetent construction process, during which all the necessary norms were not observed. The consequence of such negligence can become uneven walls, and intense shrinkage, and cracking, but with the proper construction process, such problems do not occur.
