How We Do It

Our ZS2 TechCentre is a Think Tank, Lab, and the Manufacturing Hub for all of ZS2’s latest solutions.

Whether starting from scratch or looking for ways to up your game, our production team is ready to help you integrate ZS2’s industry-leading products into your build. So let’s take a deeper dive into how we do things around the TechCentre.

It All Starts In The Lab

Our focus is innovation but our foundation is science. With lots of brain power and rigorous testing, our R&D team created a proprietary Magnesium Oxysulfate cement formula that we use to create our latest solutions like TechBoard, TechPanels, and soon much more!

Magnesium has been used in building materials for thousands of years. In fact, magnesium based cement was used to build parts of the Great Wall of China! It’s proven to stand the test of time. Now, our team of scientists are making magnesium-based materials even better and more versatile.

From Beakers to Buildings

After created a strong, sustainable and fire resistant cement alternative in The Lab we turn to our TechCrew to continue the building process.

The first step for our customers is to simply get in touch with us. Whether you’re an architect, engineer, contractor, or planning your dream home, the TechCrew is standing by to help you discover ways to build faster, safer, healthier, and more sustainably—even if your designs are already complete.

Our design team helps create comprehensive building plans that integrate our TechPanels, TechBoards, or both. Then it’s off to the Manufacturing Hub where our TechCrew begins planning, cutting and assembling all the materials.

TechPanel™ Construction

Our TechPanels are assembled in four main steps

Step 1: TechBoard is measured and precisely cut based on the design.

Step 2: Structural splines (wood, steel, etc…) are prepared to provide additional strength and solid connection points between panels.

Step 3: Insulating EPS foam is cut using a computer generated model and 3D CNC hot wire cutter. During this process the foam is cut to appropriate panel dimensions and insulating value, but also has conduit channels cut throughout to allow for easy electrical installation.

Step 4: With all three components prepared, they head to the glue line where exact amounts of high-strength glue is applied to either side of the foam and the entire assembly undergoes 70 lbs per square inch of pressure in our press  to create a completely sealed panel. Once cured our TechCrew examines each TechPanel to ensure perfect dimensions and connection points, and add staples through the TechBoard into the splines to ensure the strongest possible panel. In fact, TechPanels are so strong they broke our third-party tester’s equipment!

Ship, Ship, Hurray!

Once our TechCrew has finished all the individual panels, they are numbered to coincide with the building plans, wrapped up and shipped off to their new home. When the panels are on site, we provide on-the-ground technical support for builders who are new to the SIP building process to ensure crews are trained and confident in this rapid construction technology. Trained crews should be able to install one TechPanel every 15 minutes, meaning many building envelopes are completed in mere days.

All the individual pieces fit together like a puzzle and create a fully sealed, highly energy efficient and resilient building envelope that stands up to fire, wind, water, pests without harmful VOCs or off gassing
