The adavantages of the light gauge steel villa:
1. Better thermal insulation
The advanced exterior overall thermal insulation meets the updated state energy-saving standards for buildings. It refrains from the cold and thermal bridges phenomenon, and keeps buildings away from damages such as dampness, distortion, mildew and corrosion.
The unique heat reflection and ventilation layer design can make better insulation effects. Temperature can be reduced by five to eight degrees. ( In my opinion, this advantage is very suitable for the climatic condition of Middle East )
2. Seismic and Wind Resistance
Withstand the shock of 9 on the Richter scale. The dense light gauge steel and column are connected in flexible method with screws and bolts, which can abosorb the energy of eathquake. There are fittings between foundation and wall, which are resistant to pull out and shear. The total weight of the house is light, which is only 1/6 of the conventional concrete houses. Therefore it has better anti-seismic performance.
Can endure typhoon of 12 levels
There are special fittings among roof, floor, wall and foundation. The strong connection can help resist typhoon of 12 levels.
3. Roof Load-bearing and Fireproof
The structure can be designed according to climate requirements.
Wall and floor slab use special technology which can meet 3h refractory limit.
4. Sound insulation
Improved technology on sound insulation and shock absorption meet the state building standards for sound insulation. Special methods are performed, especially towards the audio frequency ranging from 250-1000Hz which is the most sensitive to ears, in order to create a quiet and comfortable living environment.
5. Moisture-proof and Ventilation
There is a gap between wall and roof truss, so the air can flow inside.
There is one-way ventilation layer in the composite wall, which is able to make the wall "breath". This means moisture can be reduced inside the door.
6. Durable (90 years structure safty guarantee)
Special coating technology enables the structural materials to have the self-restoration function to prevent rust and corrosion.
Envelope materials using new light weight building materials to achieve fire resistant, anti-corrosion and anto-moth.
7. Energy Efficient and Enviromental Protection
Energy Saving: 65-90 energy redution.
Water Saving: The dry construction consumes 10% of water used in traditional constrution.
Land Saving: The inside usable area increases 10%
Environment Protection: Pollution-free construction system.
