Zs2 TechPanels

A new, efficient and sustainable method of construction for commercial and residential structures

Label Date October 19, 2020
From Canada
Maturity stage TRL 9 / CRI 2 - Commercial Trial Small Scale

ZS2 Techpanel is made out of advanced materials that are safe, sustainable, resilient and energy-efficient. ZS2 Techpanels are pre-fabricated in an advanced manufacturing facility, flat packed and then shipped to sites where they are easily assembled together to construct the building envelope. The result is a structure that has a minimum one-hour fire rating, is highly resistant to mould/mildew/bacteria/humidity/rodents, and is extremely energy efficient regardless of climate. This solution is profitable, greatly reduces the time to construct and the amount of construction waste, increases the energy efficiency compared to other construction practices and is resilient for decades.

The Environmental Benefits

  • By weight, ZS2 Techboard is comprised of approximately 40% crystalline water which functions as a cement binder resulting in a highly fire resistant building product
  • ZS2 Techpanels, like most other structurally insulated panels, when used as the exterior constructed wall will outperform a conventionally built stick framed building by a factor of 10 with respect to energy efficiency
  • Highly resistant to mold, mildew, bacteria, pests, rodents and the effects of high humidity
  • ZS2 Techpanels have a greater than 70% reduction in carbon footprint versus tilt up portland concrete walls
  • The use of ZS2 Techpanels, similar to any type of Structurally Insulated Panel (SIP), results in a 60% reduction of construction waste thereby reducing the amount of waste that ends up in the landfills.

The Financial Benefits

  • Reduces heating/cooling costs by approximately 66%
  • Using pre-fabricated ZS2 Techpanel based construction results in a 50-70% reduction in construction timeline for project completion
  • Providing a building envelope that has a 1 hour fire rating and is resistant to mold/mildew/pests and rodents reduces long term building insurance costs in some geographic areas
