THE EVG CONSTRUCTION SYSTEM

The EVG-3D Construction System is a well-proven building method used in over 55 countries worldwide. It
uses high strength, non-load bearing modular panels to create interior and exterior walls, dispensing with the
need for concrete framework.
The EVG-3D panels consists of a three-dimensional welded wire space frame fitted with an expanded
polystyrene insulation core . The strength and rigidity of the panels result from the diagonal truss wires
welded to the wire mesh layers on each side of the panel.
The EVG-3D Construction System originated in Austria, Europe in the mid 1980s and was invented
by EVG (Entwicklungs- und Verwertungs-Gesellschaft m.b.H.). In 1995, Eastern Wire became the sole
Philippine manufacturer of the product and continues to exclusively supply the panels to builders within the
country.
Numerous residential, commercial and industrial
developers nationwide have taken advantage of
the EVG 3D system to create better buildings and
save on project costs, especially when compared
to concrete hollow blocks. Projects that have
used EVG 3D include SM and Robinsons Malls,
the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu, the United
Architects
of
the
Philippines
National
Headquarters, several resorts in Boracay's White
Beach, and many more.
HOW TO INSTALL:
Erection is quick and easy (no cranes needed)
because the EVG-3D panels are light (a standard
panel weighs around 13 kg). The construction
method is simple, easy to understand and does
not require skilled labor.
EVG-3D panels can be cut quickly to any size or
to a particular shape to suit architectural design
concepts. Cutting of openings for windows and
doors can be done in a matter of minutes.
EXPANDED POLYSTYRENE (EPS) INSULATION
The insulation core body (normally of expanded, non-flammable
Polystyrene) is securely and precisely locked in the center of the
panel and will not shift even under high pressure caused by the
sprayed-on concrete. This is the result of the truss wires pierced
through the insulation core and arranged in zig-zag configuration.
This results in perfect building quality, with uniform concrete
thickness throughout, giving the maximum structural strength
while minimizing cement consumption.

ADVANTAGES OF EVG-3D
- EASY TO INSTALL
3D Panels are manufactured for ease of use. Each panel can be installed in a matter of minutes by an
unskilled laborer.
- A TIME SAVER
Buildings made up of 3D panels can go up in days, not weeks. In fact, it takes less than a day for the 3D
panel shell of a 220 sq.m. house to be erected.
- DESIGN FLEXIBILITY
3D panels can be easily molded to fit complicated architectural designs. Window & door frames are easily
created by cutting the required openings in the panel itself.
- A UNIVERSAL BUILDING PRODUCT
The panels can be used as walls, ceilings, roofs and as filler panels for metal or concrete structures. It can
be used for virtually any construction project, from single-story to high-rise buildings, whether for residential
or commercial purposes.
- SIMPLE INSTALLATION OF UTILITY WIRING
Electrical wires, water pipes & other cables present no problem. They are simply inserted between the
polystyrene core & the cover mesh.
- BUILT-IN INSULATION (THERMAL & SOUND)
Each 3D panel comes with built-in thermal insulation, thanks to its expanded polystyrene core. The suns
heat cannot penetrate walls made of 3D panels. Also, cooler temperatures within the 3D panel structure can
be maintained, thereby saving on electricity costs. The panels also have excellent sound insulation
capabilities.
- CALAMITY RESISTANT
The EVG 3D panel is a light-weight reinforced concrete system capable of withstanding strong seismic and
wind pressure. Houses built with 3D panels have survived typhoons and hurricanes without an inch of
damage.
- FIRE RETARDANT
The 3D panels are also fire retardant. The polystyrene core does not kindle fire, it merely melts under the
flames.
- COST-EFFECTIVE
The 3D panel system can save builders as much as 25% of their total project costs. Reductions in
necessary labor, machinery, and extra materials, which would have been needed by using traditional
construction methods, all contribute to the total savings.
- A SPACE SAVER
Finished 3D panel walls (that is, after being sprayed with concrete) typically results in a thickness of only 4
inches. By comparison, hollow blocks are already 6 inches thick on their own. After adding finishing on both
sides, those blocks typically carry an 8-inch thickness.
- MAXIMUM STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY
The monolithic structure of the 3D panels allows for an impressive strength-to-weight relationship.
- ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY
The EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) Core is CFC-free. The wires are made of recycled steel. Also significant is
the amount of timber the system saves compared to the use of traditional wood frames.
