HABIQUAD™ BUILDING SYSTEMS
HABIQUAD™ BUILDING SYSTEMS
Habiquad™ building technology makes our modular structures stronger and more durable than buildings made of traditional ‘stick and cement’ construction.
They can be built up to 3 stories high without structural steel to provide valuable multifamily homes and community support options. Habiquad™ modular structures are individually made-to-order and can be configured using either Habiquad FCB(trademark) panels or Habiquad WP(trademark) panels (up to 24′ long), or a combination of both. This level of flexibility means that Habiquad(trademark) structures and panels are suitable for a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial installations.
Habiquad™ structures and panels reduce energy costs – Favorable insulation “R” values result in lower heating and cooling costs of as much as 75% and may generate insurance rate and/or tax savings for owners, where available.
Habiquad™ structures and panels are stronger and safer than traditional structures – they can be built up to 3 stories high without structural steel.
Because Habiquad™ structures are built utilizing virtually no wood products,Habiquad™ modular structures help conserve endangered forests and trees. Further, the manufacturing process does not create toxic waste of any kind.
BENEFITS: HABIQUAD™ STRUCTURES ARE STRONGER AND MORE SAFE
Habiquad™ modular structures save money on labor and materials during the building process and on energy for the life of the structure. Habiquad™ structures and panels are safe, durable, energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and qualify for the Energy Star® program of the U.S. Department of Energy.
+ Habiquad™ structures and panels arrive onsite in pre-cut lightweight sections, up to 24’ in length for Habiquad WP™, and can be fastened together using ordinary power tools.
+ Habiquad™ structures and panels reduce energy costs – Favorable insulation“R” values result in lower heating and cooling costs of as much as 75% and may generate insurance rate and/or tax savings for owners, where available.
+ Habiquad™ structures and panels are stronger and safer than traditional structures – they can be built up to 3 stories high without structural steel.
+ Habiquad™ structures and panels pass national and international building codes for structural integrity, fire, earthquake, and moisture.
+ Habiquad™ structures and panels are durable – they have been tested by Trentec, and have been shown to withstand extremes in climate and safety in natural disasters – including earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes.
A SMALL TEAM OF 6 TRAINED WORKERS CAN COMPLETE THE ASSEMBLY PROCESS FOR A 1,500 SQUARE FOOT HABIQUAD™ STRUCTURE IN 4 DAYS OR LESS.
Habiquad™ structures and panels are an ecologically-sound, cost-effective building alternative that meet the global demand for innovative, affordable, residential and commercial structures. They have been tested extensively for safety and durability by independent third-party practitioners at both the national and international levels. A typical 1,500 square foot Habiquad™ modular structure has been proven equal to or better than traditional building structures under a variety of extreme circumstances.
+ Thermal Capability
A Habiquad™ structure will have up to 75% less heat loss than a traditional ‘stick and cement’ structure.
+ Fire Safety
Habiquad™ structures and panels meet or exceed fire safety requirements for the types of buildings for which they are normally used. The fiber cement layers are noncombustible, will not burn, and have a smoke development number of 0. The expanded polystyrene foam is superior to wood frame structures, with a flash point between 600-650 degrees Fahrenheit. [ICC Testing: ASTM E84]
+ Hurricane-force Winds
Habiquad™ structures have withstood simulated hurricane-force winds up to 110 MPH, and can be upgraded to withstand 200 MPH winds, or the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane. [Results certified by the Federation of American Scientists, April, 2005]
Habiquad™ modular structures are certified by Trentec to meet structural integrity requirements caused by intense seismic activity. [HSN, Inc. ICC Report: 2406]
+ Structural Integrity
Habiquad™ modular structures are resistant to many forces of twisting and flexing that may cause other buildings to deteriorate. [ICC Testing: ASTM E72] CAT-5
+ Insects, Mildew and Mold
Habiquad™ modular structures are easier to maintain than traditional structures and are perfect for a variety of climate conditions. Because they have no nutritive value for plants or animals, they are virtually mold, mildew, insect and vermin free.
Habiquad™ modular structures are guaranteed for 20 years against delamination or any other failure due to manufacturing defect, not to exceed the cost of the panels.
+ Energy Conservation
Habiquad™ structures and panels have high insulating qualities that save energy, plus the fuel that produces it. Because they are built utilizing virtually no wood products, Habiquad™ modular structures help conserve endangered forests and trees. Further, the manufacturing process does not create toxic waste of any kind.
Habiquad™ modular structures are naturally sound retardant and are excellent for use in multi-unit structures due to low noise transmission.
+ Optional SUNTUF® Roofing
SUNTUF Roofing systems, complete with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty from SUNTUF, Inc. , are impact, chemical, and flame resistant and block virtually 100% of harmful UV rays. [For more information, visit www.SUNTUF.com]
Habiquad™ modular structures are manufactured for easy assembly. Our modular structures are pre-cut when delivered and include detailed assembly instructions. A typical 1,500 square foot, one-story Habiquad™ structure, using Habiquad FCB™ or Habiquad WP™ panels, requires 6 trained workers and 4 days to assemble.
