COMPLEO OFFERS THE BUILDING INDUSTRY THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS, SPECIFICALLY THE STRENGTH AND SOLID FEEL OF MASONRY WITH EASIER AND FASTER METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION.

Compleo is an internal wall system using autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) panels. The double steel grid reinforcement in Compleo Panels consists of bars running in both the longitudinal and transverse directions giving it excellent impact and damage resistance. Compleo panels also offer thermal, fire resistance and sound insulation properties. Compleo wall systems are used where a high degree of fire resistance, acoustic insulation and security is required between units. The thermal performance of Compleo AAC panels also helps maximise energy efficiency. Compleo wall systems are specified mostly for intertenancy, common area and service walls in high rise residential buildings. They can also be used in medium rise residential buildings or medium to high rise commercial buildings.

STRUCTURAL, ACOUSTIC AND FIRE PERFORMANCE

Compleo wall systems in this manual are designed to resist ultimate lateral pressures of 0.375 kPa and service pressures of 0.25 kPa with deflection limited to height/240 or 20mm. Earthquake loads have not been considered in this manual. For seismic and other design requirements contact one AAC.

Extensive acoustic testing was carried out at the CSIRO laboratories in Highett with acoustic opinions on system variations provided by Day Design Pty Ltd, consulting acoustical engineers. Compleo wall systems have been fire tested at the CSIRO laboratories in North Ryde. The bare 75mm Compleo Panel wall system (KCS1) achieved FRL -/120/120 while the addition of 10mm MastaShield to both sides (system KCS5) achieved FRL -/180/180.

Compleo Wall Systems outlined in this installation manual have been designed for internal use only in Class 2 to Class 9 buildings as defined by the BCA.

Compleo Wall Systems must be installed as documented for optimum acoustic, fire and structural performance. Product substitutions may result in system performance being compromised.

In all Compleo systems; 10 and 13mm MastaShield can be substituted with 10 and 13mm WaterShield, 13mm FireShield can be substituted with 13mm TruRock and 13mm TruRock HD and 16mm FireShield can be substituted with 16mm TruRock.
