"Rapidwall is fast, lightweight and accessible"
Rapidwall is a revolutionary low-cost, load bearing prefabricated walling system with broad construction applications for individual domestic cottages to multi-storey residential 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.
It is manufactured in a moulding process using glass-fibre reinforced, water-resistant gypsum plaster.
All panels are 12 metres long, 3 metres high, 124 millimetres thick and cellular in construction.
This means the formed cells can be used to accommodate building services such as plumbing and electrical conduits and although tough, can be easily cut with conventional saws or routers.
The hollow cells can be filled with insulation for increased thermal performance or, when concrete filled the increased load bearing capacity can support up to 15 storeys.
Key benefits to the trade
- Prefabricated Rapidwall means faster overall construction time.
- The panels are cut in the factory to design specifications and delivered on-site in stillages ready to erect.
- The speed of assembly of Rapidwall reduces time on-site.
- Clean construction reduces potential damage and finishing time reduced radically.
