Experiments with Metlaclad Beams as Footings to Support a Kingspan PIR Sandwich Panel Floor


Experiments with Metlaclad Beams as Footings to Support a Kingspan PIR Sandwich Panel Floor

Mk 1

92mm drywall clads composite door edge off cut (CDEFC) are placed first.  If a stronger beam is required a dry lining I-Stud is inserted in the middle (see right of pic)

Important: If footings are not used, several Rebar "L shape" or "Loop" is inserted into ground at angle away from the building at a 30-50cm depth to anchor. Minuimun of 4 for each corner & 4 at edge & in middle beam     

Then a 50mm CDEFC. Roof kingspan panels is placed upside down (ridges downward for extra strength)


Insulated door off  cuts can be inserted in the gaps for extra insulation & to stop rodents nesting (Rodents do not appear to eat door grp / foam)  

Pic below shows 2 layers
 
Mk2. These are shown upside down (so current upside would be facing the ground)

For lighter shelters requiring a lower height, the Beams can be inserted the trough between the ridges 
 Again, insualtion can fit into gaps
