Since the stud flanges are potentially exposed to fire they can only be used for Wind Loads in accordance with AS/NZS1170.2.
If flexural capacity other than Wind Loads is required then the wall may be reinforced and designed as a normal reinforced concrete wall.

the Lintel should be designed and detailed to suit.

D17 Design As Deep Beam or Transfer Walls

A number of options are available for using AFS LOGICWALL as formwork for deep beams or transfer walls. Some of these are
shown in the following examples.
Transfer walls allow the transfer of heavy loads from floors above to supporting columns or supporting beams below. These
walls are designed in accordance with AS3600 Section Design of Non-Flexural Members, End Zones and Bearing Surfaces.
Additional checks are to be made for Vertical Shear Plane failure at the stud, longitudinal shear at the top and bottom of the wall,
development lengths, bearing and congestion.
Use of AFS LOGICWALL in the design of deep beams should only be undertaken by experienced engineers with a good
understanding of all aspects of deep beam design. The engineer should examine issues such as construction sequence, build-
ability, congestion, services, detailing.
Where AS3600 calls for two layers of reinforcement AFS LOGICWALL has two options.

b) AFS262D

Other combinations are possible like relocating the tension tie reinforcement from the wall in D17.3 to the beam similar to D17.2.
Multiple levels of walls can be combined to provide deeper transfer beams and extend the possible spans but require careful
detailing and consideration of construction sequences . For typical spans usually only one level needs to be designed as a
transfer wall.

D18 Deep Beam Example


DD Structural

AFS LOGICWALL can be used as permanent formwork for economical deep beams. Their design as deep beams is controlled by;
Achieving adequate development lengths for the main tension reinforcement.
Placement of reinforcement at the stud cutouts and avoiding congestion.
H
orizontal tension tie reinforcement can only be cogged the other end to allow installation from one end of the walls. AS3600
requires that tension ties not be lapped in the tension zone instead full strength couplers would be needed if bars are to be
joined. For ease of construction only single length tension ties are beneficial.
M
aximising length of bearing to reduce bearing, strut and shear stresses. Bearing length can be increased by using drop
panels, thicker slab, band beams.
Additional storeys can be used to increase span and load capacity of deep beams. The detailing at each floor will need adequate
continuity bars through the slab into the wall as starter bars.

Typically multiple levels of AFS walls will span an opening. Normally only the lower one or two levels are designed as deep beams.
This simplifies the design and construction as additional documentation and reinforcement is limited to the lower walls. Propping
can also be removed earlier avoiding staged construction design. In the final construction state this is conservative as effective
depth of the deep beam is greater.

The following is an example of a Type I idealized Strut and Tie Design Model utilising a Fan Strut to support uniformly distributed
design load. Design of Non-flexural Members should only be undertaken by experienced engineers familiar with Strut and Tie
design in accordance with AS3600 Section 12 or other appropriate references.

congestion within the wall which creates difficulties when core filling and may result in voids or insufficient concrete compaction.
When detailing reinforcement to be placed in AFS LOGICWALL the following constraints must be noted.

the parameters governed by the holes in the steel stud

D23 Movement Joints

The structural concrete wall effectively has control joints at each stud so no additional crack control joints are necessary. Full
depth "movement joints" may be required depending on the geometry of the structure and other considerations such as thermal
loads, exposure and buiIding joints. In generaI "movement joints" would not be required for walls less than 16m long. Structural
movement joints will be placed in locations nominated by the structural engineer and must be documented on structural
drawings. These will be installed at construction stage by the AFS LOGICWALL installation contractor.
The following method is recommended:

D25 Wall Bracing

During construction AFS LOGICWALL panels shall remain braced until the floor over is constructed. Typical spacing for panel
braces is 1100mm which is every panel joint, bracing charts are available upon request. Apply standard bracing details for
temporary construction wind loadings up to Terrain Category 2 for 3000mm high walls placed on floors up to 50m above ground
level. The nominated Project Engineer is to design and detail any additional braces required for non-standard application.
Further details on bracing are in Section K Installation of this manual.

Draft v6 29/11/11
D26 Structural Detailing

Care must be taken when detailing AFS LOGICWALL to avoid installation problems on site. Points to note are:
Location and detailing of starter bars.
Cast in starter bars or drilled in dowels with limited anchorage.
Location and size of reinforcement to avoid steel congestion and placement difficulties.
Allow for location of services such as conduits and junction boxes within walls. Care is needed to avoid damage to junction
boxes if heavy horizontal reinforcement is used.
Services within walls should be avoided in highly stressed areas or allowed for in the design.
Maximum supplied wall height 4200mm. Heights exceeding 4200mm can be manufactured upon request and will be regarded
as a special order.

endorsed by government and professional bodies.The specification is for all building structures with specialist packages for
architects, interior designers, landscape architects, structural, mechanical, hydraulic and electrical engineers and domestic

The foundation of the Natspec specification system is the worksection. Natspec worksections are selected and customized by
the specifier to produce a project specification. In some instances, the specifier can choose between a generic worksection and a
branded worksection when compiling the specification.
A Natspec branded worksection is developed by Natspec in conjunction with the manufacturer, known as a Natspec Product
Partner. AFS has worked extensively with Natspec to become a product partner and to form the AFS LOGICWALL In Concrete
Combined branded worksection.

This AFS LOGICWALL product specific worksection/specification can be accessed via a link on the AFS website
www.afswall.com.au or by going directly to the Natspec website www.natspec.com.au and has been formulated so that
project designers/specifiers can produce a project specific specification for either:
1. AFS LOGICWALL combined with all concrete works on the project or
2. AFS LOGICWALL component of the project only.

DULUX AcraTex Coating System for AFS LOGICWALL Building System.

Substrate:
AFS LOGIC WALLTM is an innovative fast track permanent formwork system used as load bearing external and internal wall solutions for both residential & commercial
construction. AFS Walling Panels incorporate CSR Cementel Fibre Cement Sheeting CEMINSEAL WALLBOARD with WATERLOCK technology.

Substrate Preparation:
Frame detail and panel fixing must comply with relevant building codes and be in strict accordance with substrate manufactures instructions & recommendations.
All fixings must be non-corrosive, suitable for the exposure condition and be in accordance with substrate supplier recommendations.
Panel Face & Joint Alignment/ Jointing to be completed by others prior to internal painting.
Panel alignment is critical in all lost formwork systems and specific attention must be given to control of joint & sheeting alignment. Ensure that all joints between panels
accurately align and floor-to-floor alignment ensures a true and flat plane across the elevation.
It is the responsibility of either the panel installer or the interior finishing contractor to ensure all joints or major imperfections, misalignments are filled and sanded true
& flush before applying any coatings system. Remove all surface contaminants such as oil, grease or dirt, dust before coating.

Expansion Joints:
Dulux AcraTex recommends suitable expansion/contraction relief joints be installed at natural building weak points eg in line with openings (window / doors), at all horizontal
multi-levels, and at all interfaces of different building construction materials and or as defined by Engineer.
CJs are best treated before the coating system is applied. The use of a PU - Poly Urethane paintable Sealant incorporating backing rod in strict accordance with the
manufacturer recommendation for use on AFS LOGICWALL should be used in all cases. Select a colour that is complimentary to the final Texture colour.
Apply Sealant on completion of the panel installation to ensure adequate curing.

It is recommended to hold a volume of finish material for future maintenance touch-ups.

Important Notes:
Coatings should be applied in full accordance with relative product Technical and Applicational data sheets.

Dulux AcraTex accepts no liability for joint cracking or joint deformation, as control of structural movement is beyond the scope of a coating specification. Do not apply paint if
Relative Humidity is above 85% or temperature is within 3C of Dew Point, or the surface temperature is greater than 50C or below 10C, or likely to fall below 10C during the
drying period.
This system is recommended where panel misalignment is NOT greater than 3mm. Practical Application Rates will vary from the quoted theoretical spread rate due to factors
such as method and condition of the application and surface roughness, and or panel misalignment.
Glancing light
Joints and panel deformation may be clearly evident under glancing light, casting visible shadows of the minute and uneven projections of the joints.
Glancing light is light that is nearly parallel to the surface of the wall and casts visible shadows and uneven projections of the joints.
Just like rendered masonry any uneven projections will be highlighted and as such are outside the control / scope of this specification.

**Recoat times are quoted for 25oC and 50% relative humidity these may vary under different conditions. Longer time will be required under adverse conditions.

A. Trowel Applied "Float Sand Finish":
AcraTex Coventry Coarse Trowel On
AcraTex Coventry Coarse is a flexible acrylic texture, applied at 1-2mm film build delivering a traditional float finish render style
in a fine-medium grain texture.
AcraTex or AcraSkin is specified as the final weatherproofing topcoat.
B. Texture Roller Applied, "Stipple Finish":
AcraTex AcraSkin
AcraTex AcraSkin is an Elastomeric Membrane coating applied by medium cell Texture Roller delivering a weatherproofing, highly
flexible light relieve texture stipple.
AcraSkin is also specified as the final weatherproofing topcoat, applied by a nap roller.
