Of paramount importance to us, is quality and reliability.


RAMS - Rapid Assembly Modular Structure


The steel panel elements of our recently launched and patented RAMS Integrated Technology, modular panel, prefabricated houses and manufactured buildings are made of High-strength corrosion-resistant LGS steel, with the walls, floors, roof and all construction elements being fully accredited. 

(e.g. EN-1090 - ISO 9001: 2009, + A1: 2011, to EXC3 according to EN-1090-2)

Insulated in excess of all current building regulations and requirements for both thermal and acoustic performance.

Fire resistance to Euroclass A1.


The basis for the system is a variety of purpose designed, high-tensile LGS steel manufactured profiles, that have been fully developed, tested and approved. 

Our fail-safe rapid-assembly interlocking panel system being internationally patented.

When combined, they can rapidly create a wide spectrum of building shapes and can be adapted to suit any plans, designs or end-user requirements.


Subject to design, up to 3 levels can be constructed without any additional HGS (Heavy Gauge Steel) components.

 
 

The substantial high performance external walls are available in various complex profile dimensions, with a wide selection of insulation and load strength qualities and capabilities. 

External walls are commonly available based on two substantial profile dimensions. (Although subject to specification  / special requirements) 

Those being: 130mm to 274mm total thickness, (excluding additional finishes etc.) and as specified, to the appropriate U-factor.    Including 0.14 (W / m2K)

(Various insulation levels as required per location/end use are available with all options.)


The make-up in the highest specification format comprises in it's simplest terms:

The core being:

  • High Quality Steel (S 320 GD - S 500 GD) 152mm fully automated to Euro Code 3, cold-formed custom profile. 

     Hot-dipped galvanised for steel-corrosion resistance. 

(Our patented steel profile connection system being used for all exterior and interior walls, wall partitions and roof.)


Additional components for the exterior to interior can include (but not limited to and subject to specifications):

  • EPS Thermo Facade - 80mm (ONORM B 6000 and ONORM EN 13163) High heat insulation - high dimensional accuracy
  • Air and Moisture Barrier. (ASHRAE 90.1 Compliant ASHRAE 189.1 Compliant.   -   ICC Code Recognition ASTM-E 2357 Evaluated.)
  • Fibre Cement Board - 10mm. (Resistant to fire  -  B s1 d0 EN13501-1) Providing a high level of additional acoustic and thermal insulation.
  • Organic Strong Plaster. (EN ISO 2811 - EN ISO 7783 - EN 1062-1 - EN ISO 7783 - EN 13501-1 - ETA-11/0505) Resistant to mechanical stress / weather resistant.
  • Glassfibre mesh. (ETA-03/0027, ETA-05/0098 ETA-06/0004, ETA-09/0058, P-3139/0796-MPA BS, P-3614/3075-MPA BS) High tensile, alkali resistant, plastiser-free.
  • Mineral Rockwool - 150mm. (EU Directives 67/548/EEC, 1999/45/EEC, 1907/2006, 1272/208  and 453/2010 )  Exceptional fire response Euroclass A1. 
Thermal conductivity 0.037(W/mk)   Excellent thermal and acoustic properties.
  • FireShield Plasterboard (FR) - 12.5mm.  Fire resistance EN520 + A1 - type F.   Environmentally friendly.
  • Plasterboard - 12.5mm. (EN 520) Diffusion permeable. Fire protection effective.
  • Finishing plaster.  (BS EN 520: 2004+A1:2009, BS EN 17279-1:2008, BS EN 13963:2014) Extremely smooth consistency for easy and perfect finishing.

This combination forms a very rigid structure with excellent thermal and acoustic insulation and fire resistant qualities. 
  • External finishes are numerous, From plain or textured render, to decorative FCB, aluminium clad, brick-faced, stone, real wood, artificial wood, real brick, etc.


The numerous layers of our RAMS system, all form an environmentally friendly and very energy-efficient building.  -  Internal damp and mildew-forming spores etc. are now a thing of the past. 

Perfect for a far healthier environment. (Especially important for those with respiratory issues.)

Internal walls are formed from a base high tensile steel core profile of 89mm in thickness. 

(Subject to individual requirements, structural/architectural specifications and end-uses.) 

Plus the various plasterboard and FireShield Plasterboard on both sides.  All commonly totalling around 140mm. 

They are similarly well insulated.

Assembly is simple, fast and safe based on standard slab* foundations, commonly around 150mm.

*Subject to design, topography and geotechnic survey reports.  -  Our constructions are on average, only 25% of the weight of traditional 'brick and block'.


The advanced manufacturing design allows for rapid wall assembly incorporating our patented fail-safe interlocking mechanisms. 

Individual panels are completely pre-formed in the factory. 

It is not uncommon for all ground floor wall elements of an average house to be erected in one day. 


(If required, complete volumetric 'modules' can be fully equipped before arrival on site.  Please ask for greater details of our 'container / module' home options -  

These can also be sited using 'Excavation free' 'Surefoot' foundations systems. -  Requiring absolutely NO excavation.  -  Please contact us for additional information.)


Our prefabricated modular panellised and modular volumetric houses have many advantages including energy conservation, and can be supplied to be seismic (earthquake) and cyclone/wind (e.g. hurricane) zone compliant and with snow-loading capabilities.


As a direct result of the advanced level of completion and quality control system at the manufacturing plant, less specialised labour is required during the construction process, and accordingly reduces dependency on increasingly scarce (and more expensive) locally supplied skilled labour. 

The very simple to follow construction system being overseen, guided and advised by at least one of our Chief Engineers. 

Completion to either Shell (excluding internal fittings) or Turnkey, is also available.


The very rapid completion to weatherproof and secure period also ensures projects are not governed, dependent or restricted by 'working / weather seasons'.
