Lightweight Li ht i ht Insulated I l t d Floor Fl and Wall Panelling with Heavyweight Benefits
ď śSimply cheaper overall, Simply wonderful to live in, in Simply good for the environment. ď śWe are a sustainable building products manufacturer that offers construction projects p j building g blocks that are cheaper p to buy, install and operate.
Our cladding and flooring solutions achieve these benefits using our patented easyfix system, our building materials have a low carbon footprint, p , and architects and designers love the way our building products add value and appeal to dwellings.
ď śThere are some key financial and environmental reasons you should consider ecobuild solutions before you decide on a cladding g solution for y your external walls, a block or stone block solution for external walls, or a flooring solution as a base for f tiles, wood, or carpet finishes.
ď śProbably the biggest question that needs to be asked with building materials is what it the total cost of ownership. ď śThis is especially true of cladding systems like bricks and panels (wall panels or floor panels), stone (real stone) or stone blocks . It is not simply the cost of the material but also the cost of:
Transport to site Supporting infrastructure (e.g. (e g wet trades require water, scaffolds, electricity etc). etc) Manpower required to install Preparation costs Cleaning Maintenance Energy use
Ecobuild lowers the cost of ownership across all of these building material and construction cost elements by: Our panels are lightweight and designed to be packed and unpacked efficiently. This lowers the cost of transport p and handling. Our cladding, stone, and floor solutions use our easy fix system. Easyfix does not have a requirement for wet trades. This reduces trade costs and cost of supporting infrastructure.
All of our panels come with integrated insulation with high r values Our closed cell insulation is made of xps a polystyrene foam xps, Our insulation foam has been blown with gases that have no HFCs and is 100 percent recyclable
This integrated approach to insulation has a number of benefits to the environment and to the economics of building g construction. Integrating insulation into one panel reduces the need and cost for additional insulation. Not just the cost of the insulation itself, but the cost of install and maintenance. Compared to traditional bricks and mortar approaches the savings are huge.
ď śLess handling of products and panels on site reduces site costs and construction risk. ď śUnlike brick and mortar approaches there is no requirement for expensive trades or trade infrastructure, and the added complexity of secondary insulation.
ď śUnlike glass fibre insulation batts, our products integrated insulation are manufactured with much less heat than traditional insulation batts and that means less energy and a lower carbon footprint.
ď śAll of this supports modern sustainable building practices that are being demanded by green builders and constructors around the globe. g ď śOnce our cladding products are installed their performance surpasses traditional building materials like bricks.
Our insulation properties allows you to achieve lower operating costs for heating and cooling the dwelling. Our products are designed to withstand harsh environments and climates and once installed will be nearly maintenance free.
ď śOur wall cladding, stone cladding, and floor cladding solutions are also vermin resistant and moisture resistant. ď śThat all simply means that once built, built your investment is still giving you a return through g lower energy gy costs. ď śFurther your investment is still being protected by the advanced building materials used in all of ecobuild solutions panels.
ď śEcobuild has backed up its claims through extensively testing and assuring its manufactured product meets the stringent g standards of Australian and international building regulations. g p panels, stone p panels, and ď śOur cladding, easy fix installation system have been tested to the following:
Stone tests EN 13755:2008 Natural stone test methods – Determination of water absorption p at atmospheric p pressure p EN 1926:2006 Natural stone test methods – Determination of uniaxial compressive strength GB/T 9966.5-2001 Test methods for natural t l ffacing i stones t – Part P t5 5: Test T t method for shore hardness
EN 12372:2006 Natural stone test methods – Determination of flexural strength under concentrated load GB 6566-2010 Limit of radionuclides in building materials g– Weatherometer testing freeze/thaw/expansion/contraction – 840 hours tested at 72c and <10%RH and at -30c, 30 immersed i d in i water t att 23c, 23 tested t t d att 38.5% and 100% humidity.
Wind testing AS/NZS 4284:1995 Testing of building facades AS 4040 Methods of testing sheet roof and wall cladding AS 4040.3
Method 3 : Resistance to wind pressures for cyclonic regions Type 1 – Cyclonic Region C Fire testing AS/NZS 1530.3 – face tested. Ecobuild Solutions RealStone product is manufactured from certified B2 insulation material t i lh however B1 iis also l available. il bl Thermal insulation testing AS/NZS 4859 4859.1:2002/AMDT 1:2002/AMDT 1 (DEC 2006)
ď śThat may all sound complicated, but our innovations and extensive testing will make construction, and ownership easier, more sustainable,, and more rewarding. g Keeping it simple has been a difficult task in the building industry, but a challenge we have cherished. ď śWe have invested many years in research h and d development, d l t in i applying l i for patents, and testing our products to our strict building codes. codes
The results is that Ecobuild solutions has created a building solution that is actually easy to use, easy on the environment,, and easy y on the eye. y Thinking about green building materials, think ecobuild solutions. Thinking about sustainable building, think ecobuild solutions. Thinking about saving money now and in the future future, think ecobuild solutions.
