EHT Energy Efficient Buildings

Our experienced architects, technicians and construction teams design and build various structures and energy systems suited to the end-users needs. Adaptable to different sizes and needs from temporary shelters to elegant homes of any size through industrial complexes, medical and food grade facilities and greenhouses. With a medical grade option the units are exceptionally hygienic. The easy to clean buildings are naturally pest resistant by being constructed completely of materials unattractive to rodents and insects. Our materials and structures can span shipping and trucking industries providing durable maintenance free shipping containers that can also be efficiently temperature regulated if required. The applications for our technology is limitless and poised to advance the standards across a variety of industries and markets. With interior and exterior cladding options the structure can flexibly fit the exact demands of any project as required.

The advantage of the EHT structural system coupled with our energy systems reduces the heating and cooling requirements of the building by as much as 70%. This is due to responsible and sustainable manufacturing processes and patented products that are the foundation of our company. The walls used in our structural systems virtually eliminates all thermal bridging. This means when our system heats or cools our buildings it loses no energy to the outside environment. The thermally inert materials we use not only prevent the loss of energy to the outside environment but also, due to the construction of the material, does not allow energy to be wasted heating through walls and other construction materials.

Understanding the ENERTEC Product

Modular buildings and homes as well as some traditional construction can be based upon or utilize prefabricated panels classified as structural insulated panels ("SIP"). The Structural Insulated Panel Association defines a SIP as:

Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are a high-performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. The panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB). SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy efficient and cost effective. Building with SIPs will save you time, money and labor.

A typical SIP consists of oriented strand board ("OSB") skins on both the interior and exterior side of the molded expanded polystyrene ("EPS") insulation core. However, for interior wall applications this type of SIP must be finished on the interior with drywall or another building code approved 15-minute thermal barrier that protects the foam. This means a mandatory additional building material layer is required on every inside surface significantly increasing cost, construction time and minimum worker skill requirements.

Example of a traditional SIP indicating the need for interior thermal protection.

The ENERTEC structural insulated panel has expanded the traditional definition to become a Fiberglass Reinforced Fire Retardant Structural Insulated Panel ("FRSIP"). Utilizing a proprietary formula in creating and fireproofing a fiberglass sheet, the expanded polystyrene ("EPS") insulation core is sandwiched between two layers of the sheet material, also known as the "skin".

Below is a close-up of a thin ENERTEC FRSIP (2 inches) showing the thin "skin" on each side of the EPS core. Generally, the FRSIP is produced in much thicker dimensions for strength and insulation value.

This ENERTEC FRSIP is up to 40% lighter than a traditional SIP and up to 60% lighter than one with a mandatory interior covering. Requiring no such additional interior covering, the ENERTEC panel is rapid to install, easier to transport, incurs lower direct labour installation costs, is tool friendly but can easily accept any inner covering like drywall should the customer wish to install it.

The ENERTEC FRSIP recently received its UL Class II or class B fire rating, meeting Canadian National Building Code ("CNBC") requirements for virtually all building applications. Meeting the CNBC requirements ensures the ENERTEC FRSIP will meet or exceed virtually all international codes as the CNBC is considered one of the strongest and comprehensive building codes in the world.

Not only is the ENERTEC system simplistic and easy/fast to install but the ENERTEC FRSIP's further advances the goal of eliminating mould in cold an/or damp environments while enhancing fire resiliency.
