The basic element of the SISMO concept is a three-dimensional lattice made of galvanised steel wire. The lattice performs a number of basic functions. The lattice creates the ‘body’ in which the infill panels are inserted to create the formwork for the structural material. Additionally it acts as an armature and as an anchoring for the cladding or rendering.
The choice of lattice is determined by the following factors:
- Structural requirements
- Type of infill panels
- Desired finish
The SISMO lattice varies from S6 (6cm in width) to S50 (50cm in width). Please ask for our Technical Guidelines Document for a comprehensive list of all SISMO modules.
