STEEL HOME BY UNIC ROTAREX® TECHNOLOGY
Steel home producer, Unic Rotarex® takes the leading role of this niche.
We are now proposing one of the most complete technology of steel homes production. Building in a geographic area with four extreme seasons is the biggest challenge. How to make a house resist cold and wet weather during winter, extreme heat and torrential rain during summer, and also prolonged moisture and extreme wind during spring and autumn.
You can identify many advantages, the condition is to understand and respect the technology we propose.
we use recycled steel in producing home structures, hence reducing the carbon footprint of our factory;
the regularity of structural elements guarantees quality finishes;
the modularity of structures creates the support for other prefabricated materials;
assembling is easy, lightweight structural elements;
ease of the assembling hence it does not need specialists;
lightweight structural elements, thus no need for lifting equipment;
detailed and explicit plans, easy to read and understand;
simplified electrical, thermal and also sanitary works by easy routes of systems;
the materials used in this technology are low cost and usual on the construction market;
finishing the constructions is easy, usual jobs for the construction market;
there are no pauses in the workflow in contrast with the classical construction system;
more usable area on the same built surface;
the loss of material is reduced, hence reducing overall costs;
the insulation is much improved;
higher seismical resistance, thus increased safety;
the final price is a quarter lower than the price of classic construction;
last but not least do not neglect the ecological part of our technology: “Forests are saved while structures are made!”
Types of sections for the steel homes
We present below wall, floor and also roof sections for the Unic Rotarex® houses. The sections explain our way of making the stratification of prefabricated materials which associate with our structure in the purpose of creating the most modern, fast and economical building system invented at the present time.
Thermal resistance for steel homes
Unic Rotarex® proposes steel homes with many thermal efficiency levels. All are cheap solutions and easy to build, using our structure coupled with various materials on the market at this time.
Fire resistance for steel homes
We ensure the fire protection by boarding with gypsum boards which are fire resistant. You can obtain 30, 45, 60, 90, 120 and 180 minutes fire resistance by boarding with fire resistant Knauf boards.
Acoustic or sound resistance
We ensure sound resistance by installing soundproof boards. You can improve the sound resistance for the Unic Rotarex® walls by installing soundproof Knauf boards.
Seismic resistance or earthquake resistance of steel homes
In our constructive system, things are very simple. Since Newton, we know that the force is equal to the weight multiplied by the acceleration. Thus the earthquake is an acceleration of the earth on horizontal direction which if we multiply with the weight (of the building) will result in a destruction force which affects the building.
We also know that a classical house is many times heavier than a steel home. In conclusion, it’s weight multiplied by the same acceleration value will result in a higher destruction force. If we take into account that the steel structure has elasticity, opposite to the classical one, after a high intensity earthquake, we can consider the classical house as being demolished, in comparison, the steel home will be just a little “crumpled”.
Seismical test done by the San Diego University – California on a six floors steel building which proves the superiority of this building system.
Wind resistance up to 150km/h in standard price conditions, however we can design it for higher wind intensities.
Resistance but also elasticity, put our structures in superiority in the fight with the wind.
According to the law in force the corrosion resistance must be same as the standard lifetime, meaning 98 years.
Of all the anticorrosive protection solutions, zinc is the best solution.
Therefore we invite you to watch a short movie on how to build Unic Rotarex® steel homes.
