Building with the right materials from the start is key. Smarter Building Systems offers quality building materials that are environmentally responsible.
Improvement of air quality — All materials fabricated with basalt volcanic rock fibers are safe, inert and recyclable. They contain no toxins or VOC’s. Our innovative coatings are thermally insulating and do not burn or spread smoke.
Protection of aquatic ecosystems — Our epoxy basalt bridge column wrap system contains no hazardous toxins. Our basalt reinforcements are 70% lighter yet 2-3 times stronger than steel, they do not corrode and do not conduct electricity.
Conservation of resources — Basalt fabrics are less invasive than petrochemicals such as fiberglass or carbon fiber. One pound of rock becomes one pound of fiber.
Energy savings — Basalt rebar prevents thermal bridging and provides a long lifecycle. Our insulation coating offers significant fuel savings
Disaster mitigation — Our UHPC and epoxy/geo-polymer basalt reinforced concretes solutions provide fire, hurricane, tornado and flood protection affordably.
Reduce costs — Being environmentally responsible is not only sensible, and smart, it saves money in the life of the product and your budget. For instance less concrete and smaller size rebars.
At Smarter Building Systems we have been involved in building and alternative energy products for over fifty years. We have done the research and followed the developments.
Smarter Building Systems offers materials that are “smart”, LEEDS qualified and green alternatives. Our products embrace new building methods, ideas and materials. A prime motivation is saving water, heating and cooling expenses and environmental costs. Healthy buildings are smarter buildings!
Basalt Rebar reinforcement is an alternative to steel and fiberglass for reinforcing concrete
Made from volcanic rock basalt rebar is tough, stronger than steel and has a higher tensile strength.
Cor-Tuf Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) offers both as an elegant solution to contemporary design and construction.
An affordable solution for architectural and structural designs, providing the ability to develop complex shapes with exceptional strength and durability.
Basalt Fabrics are yarns manufactured to varying thickness, weight, weave pattern and weaving technique according to end-use requirements for high-performance applications from construction to clothing.
Thermatize Insulation Coating
Thermatize – a new multi-ceramic-based insulation coating that decreases energy usage significantly.
Almost fire proof, Thermatize is VOC free, non-hazardous, non-toxic, elastic, flexible and water proof.
