"Rapidwall saves time and money"
Rapidwall is a revolutionary low-cost, load bearing prefabricated walling system with broad construction applications for all types of buildings.
The single panel Rapidwall system serves as both the internal and external wall and eliminates the need for bricks, blocks, timber and steel wall frames and plasterboard linings. This means that building with Rapidwall significantly reduces the number of trades required on site, speeding up construction time and reducing cost.
Flexible in its design potential, Rapidwall panels are manufactured to a size of 12 metres by 3metres high by 124 millimetres thick and cellular in construction.
The cells can be used to accommodate building services such as plumbing and electrical conduits or filled with insulation for increased thermal performance. For buildings over two storey's high or where extra load bearing capacity is required all or part of the cavities are concrete filled.
Housing the services in the cavities reduces building time and may improve the aesthetics of the entire home.
The panels are cut to size in the factory, in accordance with the design requirements and delivered on site in transport stillages, ready to erect.
Compared to other building methods each lightweight panel can be easily installed with a small crane (maximum lift 1.5 tonnes) and because of the reduced weight, savings can also be made on the cost of foundations.
Best of all, Rapidwall is manufactured using gypsum plaster and glass fibre reinforcement which results in fire and cyclone resistant dwellings that are safe for families and good for the environment.
With the low construction cost of Rapidwall, architects, engineers and designers have enormous flexibility.
Key benefits of Rapidwall for builders:
- Environmentally sound and 100% recyclable.
- Flexible in all aspects of house plan designs.
- Prefabricated and cut to size in the factory using Rapidwall means faster overall construction time.
- Clean construction reduces potential damage and finishing time is radically reduced.
- Fire, cyclone, hurricane and earthquake resistant.
- Water and rot resistant, termite resistant, sound proof.
