This ultra-durable wall panel has been designed to meet and exceed the most stringent building and energy standards (like Energy-Star and IBHS Fortified Home). Incorporating heavy-duty steel stud framing, Magnesium Oxide sheathing, and complete-fill insulation; these wall panels are stronger than traditional building techniques and as much as 50% more energy efficient than most other new construction. The system also eliminates nutrients that feed mold, mildew, and termites; and minimizes and eliminates open spaces for pests like roaches or rodents to call home.
The pre-assembled design creates a more consistent product, ensures the highest quality control, minimizes required field work, and significantly speeds construction times. None of the components will rot or decay over time. The Wall System One is water resistant, mold and mildew resistant, pest resistant, flood resistant, fire resistant, and damage resistant.
Using Magnesium Oxide Sheathing versus traditional OSB and Gypsum creates a truly water/flood resistant wall panel that has similar structural properties to OSB, the water-resistant properties of Cement Board, and the paintability of Gypsum, all with a fire resistance equal to 5/8″ Type-X Fireboard. Unlike traditional building materials, it is completely non-toxic and contains no harsh chemicals or crystilline silica that has been shown to cause cancer and other health issues.
Although Magnesium Oxide Board is more expensive, it is a superior product; and in combination with our wall system, they work together as a superior building system and creates a healthier living environment.
