  • KwikPlast
  • Lightweight Steel Framing (LSF)

Our team will help you select the most appropriate technology for your prefabricated buildings, whether it is for a temporary or permanent park home, or supplied as a completely a custom prefab kit.

Polyurethane is significantly superior to polystyrene in this application in that:

 

  • It holds its form in the case of fire and does not melt, which can lead to premature building collapse and spread of the fire
    It has superior thermal properties (R1.81). Typically a 40 mm polyurethane insulated panel provides same thermal insulation as a 65 mm polystyrene panel
    It provides good acoustic properties of 34 dB
    It is moisture and insect resistant and fire retardant
    The polyurethane itself forms the bond to the steel and does not rely on adhesives, which means no delamination over time

  • KWIKPREMIUM

    KWIKPREMIUM technology is a high-quality 40-mm steel clad panel filled with polyurethane at 36kg/m3.

    This high-strength panel provides excellent thermal properties (R1.81), is fire retardant, and resists moisture and ingress of dust and insects. The polyurethane bonds to the steel, avoiding the need for adhesives and eliminating delamination. It is the fastest and most cost-effective ABT system to erect.

  • KWIKFIRE

    KwikFire technology utilises the same high-quality polyurethane-filled, 40 mm steel clad panel except it is manufactured with an additional 12 mm magnesium oxide board in the panel. This extra board provides a 30-minute fire resistance rating.

  • KWIKMAX

    KwikMax comprises premanufactured panels clad with magnesium oxide or fibre cement boards. They are manufactured in sizes of 2.7 m high x 1.2m wide. The panels are filled with high-density polyurethane, which holds fire retardant properties. The KwikMax panel can be used in double-storey prefab building without additional load bearing support. Over 3 500 such prefabricated buildings have been built with this panel to date in southern Africa.

  • KWIKPLAST

    KwikPlast is used for permanent modular buildings. It consists of an EPS (expanded polystyrene) core clad with a high tensile reinforcing mesh and then plastered on site. This system is used for buildings up to 8 storeys high and gives an excellent hard plaster finish with outstanding fire and thermal ratings. It is also ideal for internal walling and is often used when buildings are modified from offices to accommodation facilities due to the low weight per square metre

  • LIGHT WEIGHT STEEL FRAMING (LSF)

    We have our own in-house design and fabrication capabilities to build structures with LSF technology. This system is excellent for users seeking high thermal and sound performance from the building system.

    The benefits of this roofing system are the accuracy of fabrication, speed, low cost, and the fact that they can be shipped to any site in Africa.

    Our LSF roof system has been used extensively throughout Africa on all of our walling solutions.
