HOUSING: Ikhaya Futurehouse Systems Growing Demand

 





Recent Gauteng Business News

Ikhaya Futurehouse Systems, specialists in environmentally-friendly building systems, is about to complete the construction of a new factory in Centurion, Gauteng, to meet growing demand for the company’s thermally insulating walling panels.

“The Futurehouse building system, which encompasses lightweight panels, with excellent thermal insulation and moisture penetration protection, has gained popularity for use in projects that include industrial buildings, security walls and residential construction,” says Craig Paton-Ash of Ikhaya Futurehouse Systems. “The new manufacturing plant will increase production capacity and enable the fabrication of panels up to 6 metres in length.

“The Futurehouse system utilises expanded polystyrene systems (EPS) to provide building products that withstand the effects of rising building, electricity and labour costs. With the promulgation of new energy efficient legislation – SANS204 - expanded polystyrene now plays a much greater role in the South African building environment.

“This system has gained popularity in the local building sector because these panels are quick and easy to build with, even with untrained labour. Transportation to site is effortless as the panels are not heavy and can be flat packed. This system is enhanced with wall plaster, giving the feeling and appearance of a solid concrete wall. The high strength Futurehouse system, which is safe to use, is also cost competitive compared with traditional brickwork.”

The Futurehouse system has approval from relevant building authorities in South Africa, including Agrement and NHBRC.

Ikhaya Futurehouse offers support services which include panelisation and costing of building designs, on-site tuition, training manuals and access to builders who are proficient with this system. Ancillary plaster products and components are also available, as well as spray plastering technology to accelerate the building process.
