Re-Structure Group, a material manufacturer, has started using an innovative 3D cementitious sandwich panel to assist in protecting U.S. homes during natural disasters.
The material has been used extensively across the globe but is presently being tested in the U.S. The panels, which were designed to be mass-produced, are hurricane-resistant, fireproof, and capable of resisting the intensity of an earthquake recorded up to this point. The material is being presented as a resilient and sustainable building system that intends to transform the housing market in the U.S.
The manufacturer, RSG 3-D, produces the 3D cementitious sandwich panel with fire-retardant foam pressed between a pair of wire mesh surfaces. Reinforcement wires run through the two sides and each panel is encased in concrete.
