Earthquake-proof House
A Chinese company with more than 30 years experience in America, Japan and other countries around the world, supplies building concept using high quality galvanized steel structures, against termites (no wood), without maintenance, anti- seismic (zone 3-4) and anticyclones ( 250 - 300 Km/h winds ) resistant, quick to set up with local manpower assisted by company's engineers and technicians, without any heavy machines. The exterior walls are covered by armed cement board panels fixed to the steel structures. Galvanized light gauge steel is formed into C-sections to dimensions similar to equivalent wood 2x4s and other dimension lumber, and is manufactured under strict quality control. Since steel framing is 1/3 the weight of its wood equivalent, wall sections can easily be carried and erected by two workers: an important factor in the ease of on-site assembly. To the furthest extent possible, the houses are pre-cut and pre-assembled in panels to minimize the cost of on-site labor. Steel framing is inherently more accurate than wood and especially so when factory-assembled on jigs. Wall sections are assembled into sections of up to 3 meters complete with insulation and strapping. The company supplies material for a house as a kit containing the components necessary to build the house. The major components include the wall, floor and roof framing, roof sheathing and coverings, exterior wall finishes, trim and millwork, vapor barriers and insulation, interior finishes, doors, frames, kitchen cabinets, closets and trim, and floor coverings.
