Ferrocement roof

This is for the basic information about the cost effective way for roofing.

Ferrocement roof

  1. 1. FERROCEMENT ROOF
  2. 2. DISCRIPTION  The ferrocement roof consists panels size 1.5mtrs.x1.2mtrs. approximately and ferrocement portal and purlins replacing AC sheets and structurals steel trusses and purlins. Unlike AC sheet Metal, FRP roof all the ferrocement panels are joined monolithically. There will be no nuts and bolt arrangement as in the case of AC sheet Metal, FRP roofs. But ferrocement panels shall be connected to the purlins and portal by welding and in-situ vibrated cement matrix application. Or Ferrocement mega tiles of size 1.5 x 1.2 mtr. or more are laid just like Mangalore tiles with most effective interlocking arrangement to prevent rain water entry below. There will be least heat transfer as compared to AC sheets etc. The space below the roof shall be neat and clean since the steel trusses are eliminated. There will be far better storage space below without obstruction.
  3. 3. The ferrocement roof is superior as compared to A.C. sheets roof and metal sheets as below: -  Ferrocement can be monolith, jointless roof eliminating trusses and purlins nuts and bolts and joints as in the case of AC sheet/ Metal sheets roof.  Ferrocement roof shall transfer much less heat as compared to AC sheet/ Metal sheets roof. It can be fully insulated against heat transfer. Jointless ferrocement roof prevent humidity transfer inside.  Since structural trusses, purlins are eliminated space there is more storage space.
  4. 4.  Since ferrocement roof is monolith, there is no phenomenon such as cracking as in the case of AC sheet/ Metal sheets roof and leakage of rainwater and corrosion of nuts and bolts, therefore, least maintenance operations. Soffit of ferrocement roofs is neat and clean as compared to AC sheet/ Metal sheets roof since there are no steel trusses or tubular trusses.
  5. 5.  In the long run ferrocement roof are very economical.  The performance of gutters and valleys is superior. Because these are integral with roof.  The life of tubular truss roof is much less in view of earlier loss of strength due to corrosion.  Wooden trusses purlins require replacement off and on. In ferrocement roof, no replacement is necessary.  Ferrocement roof is trouble free and durable for decades.
  6. 6. USAGE  Ferrocement structures  Highrise buildings  Inbuilt Ferrocement Structural Formwork  Ferrocement scores over R.C.C.  Ferrocement structurals score over Steel Structurals  Ferrocement plated RCC structures  Horizontal And Vertical Extension Of RCC Buildings  Water StorageTanks Underground Overhead Tower  Repairs, Rehabilitation Retrofitting  Waterproofing  Mini structures
  7. 7.  Corrosion resistance  Earthquake resistance  Disaster resistance  Ferrocement - The best fire resistant  material of construction  Roofs  Rainwater harvesting  Elevation Pergola Cladding  Vehicular bridges  Foot bridges  Irrigation Structures  Swimming pools  Ships, boats, barges, docks  Ferrocement Furniture

Some example for Ferrocement roof.  Ferrocement structures | Highrise buildings | Inbuilt Ferrocement Structural Formwork | Ferrocement scores over R.C.C. | Ferrocement structurals score over Steel Structurals | Ferrocement plated RCC structures | Horizontal And Vertical Extension Of RCC Buildings | Water Storage Tanks, Underground, Overhead, Tower | Repairs, Rehabilitation Retrofitting | Waterproofing | Mini structures | Corrosion resistance | Earthquake resistance | Disaster resistance | Roofing | Rainwater Harvesting | Elevation Pergola Cladding | Vehicular bridges | Foot bridges | Irrigation Structures | Swimming pools | Ships, boats, barges, docks
  9. 9. The structural steel frame work of portals and purlins in position being made ready for insitu ferrocement concrete work. Span 12.2 Meter
  10. 10. View of the roof from inside The fans and lectrical fittings attached to roof can been seen.
  11. 11. This is a complete Kiosk structure with ferrocement foundation, walls, columns and roofs. Most appropriate for resorts structure and fast food kiosks.
  12. 12. Ferrocement roof panel & Beam being lifted to 8th floor level
  13. 13. View of the roof from inside and outside & supporting system for a society Apartment.
  14. 14. Ferrocement structurals trusses and purlins to support roof panels & Dome Dia.4.00 Apex 1.5 M. and thickness 25mm. smooth finish on top on sofit. No water proofing treatment necessary.
  15. 15. This is a roof of a small structure with cast insitu treatment. The white band all around is also of ferrocement. The size of the roof is 6x3x1.2 Mtr. ht. & This is inside of the roof consisting of ferrocement portals and purlins. All cast insitu finish smooth. Electrical installation fixed to the roof is visible.
  16. 16. Corroded metal roof, Detroit, USA and Such corrosion is not possible with Ferrocement.
  17. 17. Ferrocement roof interlocking tiles size 1.2x0.9mt. X20mm thick. Size can be increased to 2.4 x 1.2 mtrs. x 25mm thick or so and laid in position with new arrangement supported by ferrocement portal
  18. 18. Company Profile  Incorporated in 2002, unified steel and reinforced cement building kit manufacturer . has stayed on the cutting edge of modern construction technology with its patented Ferrocement aprovides building solutions worldwide, from low-cost housing to luxury tourist villas. Projects include disaster resistant structures, such as schools, daycare centers, commercial & hospitality complexes, and agro-industrial facilities. Worldwide technology services include global internet marketing of am-cor Kits through its online store, Ferrocement structural engineering & project design, and hands-on site instruction showing builders how to assemble and finish am-cor building shell kits.m-cor Construction System
  19. 19. WHY SHOULD WE USE IT?  Ferrocement is able to offer superior services and building construction at lower cost through a combination of advanced technology and decades of experience. The ferrocement construction system is a proprietary technology based on patented panel designs by architect & inventor Angus W. Macdonald. Using advanced, specialized 3D modeling and engineering software,and. quickly estimates construction cost and publishes detailed illustrated manuals explaining manufacturing, field assembly and finishing techniques.
  20. 20. GOAL
  21. 21. Green and sustainable Development from ferrocement.  New green and sustainable Ferrocement panel factory as a model production facility. Production machinery, climate control, hot water and other services will be solar powered, reducing the carbon footprint of building panels and completed building shells. The factory, in Culpeper, VA, is centrally located on the US Eastern Seaboard, near the ports of Norfolk, Richmond, and Baltimore. We believe that through a combination of global thinking, environmental awareness, and construction innovation, people can inexpensively build green, sustainable, and beautiful buildings that will withstand natural disasters, rising energy prices, and the test of time.
