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

Plan to make a low cost hardware kit to allow low income groups to build locally sourced (preferably reused) panels to make foldable shelters like Hexayurts, or for childrens play dens, animals pens or room dividers to reduce heating costs and noise
