Technical information and cross-section wall diagram of I-Brid System

I-Brid can adapt to different modern building techniques. Depending on the type of structure needed for the project, I-Brid panels can serve as freestanding curtain walls or as loadbearing perimeter walls for the floors and roof.

Here are some detailed cross-section wall diagrams, including floor anchoring systems such as pre-stressed hollow core slabs, Hambro joists and structural slabs poured on site.

Joints and Sealing

Joints are prefabricated at the plant to save time. Insulation is the only step completed on site to finish the process. The joints and cavities are pressure equalized, improving their durability. Flashings between storeys are installed on top of the panels at the plant.

Pre-Stressed Hollow Core Slabs

Hollow core slabs allow us to maximize prefabrication and save time on site. They have a range of up to 32′ long, are sturdy and easy to use, all year round. In the examples below, slabs are installed on top of the panels, between storeys. Notice how the thermal bridge is cut off right by the foundations and how the shape of panels and flashing ensures proper sealing.

Hambro System

The Hambro System consists of prefabricated steel joists over which a concrete slab is poured on site. This cost-saving system creates a well-ventilated space in the ceiling dedicated to the HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems.

Structural Slabs

Structural slabs are poured on site and are the method of choice to build multi-storey buildings by spreading out the load points. I-Brid panels can be installed between the slabs without creating gap in the insulation, even at the front of the slab. Panels are anchored to the floor and ceiling with a range of motion for slab settling.
