The SISMO® module is universal and can be adapted to every project, from foundations and cellars up to roof structures. It’s high productivity, it’s brilliant simplicity and the modest demands for materials and labour make the SISMO® module the best solution for every building project.
The basic structure of the SISMO® construction system is a three dimensional module, the SISMO® module. This module is made from a galvanized steel wire lattice. At the exterior sides infill panels are inserted. These panels transform the lattice into a closed structure, which is filled with structural material (concrete). The steel wires also act as armature and anchoring for the finishing material.
The basic element of the SISMO® concept is a three-dimensional lattice made of galvanized steel wire. This lattice performs a number of basic functions. It serves to receive the infill panels forming the shuttering for the structural material. Furthermore it acts as an armature and as an anchoring for the cladding or rendering.
The infill panels
The infill panels transform the lattice into a closed structure. The type of infill used is governed by the purpose of the wall. The material will depend on whether the wall is load-bearing or not, insulated or otherwise. The lattice is so flexible that numerous alternative construction methods can be used according to the function of the walls and the type of materials that are locally available.
The structural filler
The installation of the infill panels creates a closed space to be filled with the structural material. The exact material used depends on the purpose of the structure and locally available materials. Both high density and light concretes are frequently employed. Reinforcement can be added when local codes so require.
