STYROPANEL is an innovative product that combines expanded polystyrene rigid insulation board with gauge 14 galvanized steel wire. It is suitable for a wide range of construction projects, including flooring and roofing filler blocks, window trim, molding, columns, and brackets, as well as thermal and acoustical rigid insulation sheets.
At its core, STYROPANEL features a three-dimensional welded wire space frame that utilizes a truss concept for stress transfer and stiffness. Each surface of the wire space frame has a 2” square welded mesh pattern of longitudinal and transverse wires of the same diameter (gauge 14). Individually welded internal strut wires or diagonals extend through the panel core between each surface. These galvanized strut wires are welded continuously in the required spacing so they form, with the welded wire fabric, into a triangulated truss system.
Welded in place, these strut wires pierce through a modified expanded polystyrene rigid board placed between the two layers of welded wire fabric, maintaining the required distance apart and providing the shear transfer between the panel surfaces. The modified expanded polystyrene core (minimum density 0.9 pounds per cubic foot or 13 gram per liter) is held 1/2″ or 3/4″ from each face of the wire frame to permit the wire to be embedded in an application of approximately 1″-2″ thick concrete mixture of 2,500 psi minimum.
