MEA PLASTIC LIGHT WELLS: FLEXIBLE MULTI-TALENTS
MEA light wells made of glass-fibre-reinforced plastic (GRP light wells) combine functionality with resilience and durability. The shape of our GRP light well bodies gives them maximum stability as well as resistance to weathering and chemical substances. For many years now, they have been setting standards in the field of light wells, particularly due to their simple installation: both in new buildings and in the renovation of privately or commercially used buildings. Architects, construction managers and clients can fully rely on the consistent quality of these products.
THE SMART MEA LIGHT SHAFTS MADE OF GRP
- Delivery and storage: conveniently stackable and therefore very cost-effective
- Installation: easy to install by one person, up to 84 % lighter than concrete light wells
- Handling: suitable for mounting directly on the wall or with perimeter insulation , easy to clean
- Sustainability: MEA GFK-light shafts are recyclable
- Living comfort: optimum light incidence due to the curved shape
Our MEA products for every challenge:
CONCRETE LIGHT WELL MEAVECTOR: FUNCTIONAL AND STABLE
With additional corner reinforcements, the concrete light wells MEAVECTOR can also withstand constantly high pressure loads, such as those that occur in the vicinity of underground car parks or industrial buildings. They are suitable for topping up with concrete, steel topping or the PVC attachment MEAFLEX for 4-sided repaving. MEAVECTOR Concrete light wells can be mounted on walls with perimeter insulation provided by the customer using the quick thermal-bridge free perimeter insulation. Bright Exposed concrete ensures that plenty of light enters the basement space.
MADE TO MEASURE ON REQUEST: MEAVECTOR
With our concrete light wells we can offer a light well for every size, every floor and maximum loads:
- Stability: even with rocky soil, extremely pressure-resistant and therefore ideal for slopes and cohesive soil
- Areas of application: Truck accessible and predestined for heavily trafficked roads and facilities, even in large formats
- Sustainability: suitable for ecological construction due to the basic materials cement, sand and water
- 100% individually: Special sizes and designs for every application, also installation with backfill plate for underground garages possible
MEA Concrete light wells are made of concrete C30/37 and are subject to constant quality control by the independent Testing institute PÜZ BAU, Augsburg.
The concrete light well MEAVECTOR is available in numerous designs:
ROCKS IN THE SURF: MEAVECTOR AQUA
MEA Building Systems is a full-service provider for basements and outdoor areas. We design our products with high quality standards in mind, ensuring a high level of living comfort, burglary protection and durability – and even more importantly: optimum flood protection. Watertight light wells and windows ensure that the basement is bright and remains dry at the same time. If you’re looking to upgrade a basement into a full-fledged living area, our window and drainage solutions are the perfect choice.
Everything that makes up the standard MEAVECTOR, and more: The concrete light wells MEAVECTOR AQUA can withstand high pressure from the soil or from traffic loads. They are also designed for increased flood or pressure water loads, and therefore offer a special protection against temporarily accumulating seepage water and permanently pressing groundwater.
The MEAVECTOR AQUA concrete light wells are equipped with a butyl seal with an integrated compression protector, which ensures a fixed distance between the concrete wall and the light well, and compensates for a minor unevenness of the concrete. The concrete light wells MEAVECTOR AQUA PLUS have an additional circumferential spacer made of heat-insulating material.
