Parallel to the development and the increase of awareness regarding light steel technology, there is an apparent increase in the buildings contructed with this system. Light steel education buildings are one of the best examples of this. These buildings are definitely permanent structures and detailed as such. Being possible to be assembled in all kinds of weather offers an important advantage in Eastern and Southeastern Anatolian regions where especially winter conditions are tough.
Aspects such as fast production, controllable quality, minimum margin of error as prefabrication is in the factory, earthquake-resistant building, environment friendly building, use of A-1 class incombustible fiber cement are the main factors for preferring this system in education structures.
As Prefabrik Yapı A.S., we have successfully constructed many structures such as kindergarten, elementary school, university and nursery through both public and private institutions until today. Storey height is calculated as 3.00 m. in plans prepared in accordance with the standard technical specifications of Ministry of Education of Republic of Turkey. Light steel education buildings, made with our construction systems we developed, are designed in consideration of all kinds of needs and comforts of students and teachers. High insulation values, use of A-1 class incombustible fiber cement siding material in exterior and interiors, all required electrical and sanitary installations to be performed as flush mounted can be given as examples.
Two methods are proposed in the production and assembly stages of houses we create with light steel technology..
1. Hekim Light Steel Panel System
2. Hekim Plated on Site Light Steel System
In the event Hekim Light Steel Panel System application is preferred, the assembly of the panels in the size of 1250×2500/3000 mm. comprising of steel carcass, the insulation application inside the carcass and the interior and exterior facing material of the carcass are carried out at the factory. Panel thickness differs between 80-30mm. It is possible to make storey height of 3000 mm., 3500 mm if requested. These panels are consigned to the site in ready form. Connecting the panels and other following applications are performed on site. This is a time-saving method. A-1 class incombustible fiber cement or painted galvanized sheet application can be performed on the interiors and exteriors of the building. All installations are designed optionally as flush mounted or surface mounted.
In the event Hekim Plated on site Light Steel System application is preferred, the carcasses prepared in compliance to static calculations of the project are consigned to the site in their bare form. First steel carcass assembly is completed at the site. Afterwards insulation application, interior and exterior facings are performed. All of the humidity barrier and suchlike applications are completed at the site. Elegant facade applications are performed with A-1 class incombustible fiber cement on the exteriors of the buildings. All installations are designed and applied as flush mounted.
