WONDERTEC TECHNOLOGY ADAPTED TO HOUSING

Viable for Habitable and Non-Habitable Buildings


MIAMI, FL— Wondertec International announced today the adaptation of their proprietary technology to housing needs.

According to D. A. Koss, vice president, Wondertec is ready to work with local contractors to teach them how to use the Wondertec system to build habitable buildings such as houses, apartments, schools, shelters and dorms or non-habitable structures like storage buildings or distribution centers. The system's methods allow structures to be built quickly and saves 30-50% on construction costs.

The system is not pre-fab and all materials can be secured locally to build structures on-site according to design specifications and to match any architectural style.

This new application expands on the Wondertec system's use in barrier walls, exterior security, and privacy walls with enclosed cabling and wiring.

NEW WALL-BUILDING TECHNOLOGY PASSES WIND VELOCITY TESTS FOR SOUTH FLORIDA, THE CARIBBEAN AND GUAM

Meets 170 Miles per Hour Wind Velocity Requirements for Guam and the Marianas Islands


LOXAHATCHEE, FL—Wondertec International announced today the completion of the testing of Wondertec walls up to 15 feet in height in hurricane wind velocity zones up to 170 miles per hour. Testing was conducted by Fenestration Testing Laboratory, Inc. in Hialeah, Florida and tests were conducted in accordance with the Florida building codes. By passing this extremely rigorous testing, walls up to 15 feet in height may be built using the Wondertec process in Key West, Florida, throughout the Caribbean and on Guam. Guam has the highest wind velocity requirements in the United States and its insular possessions. The wall also has significant application in Guam in helping to contain the growing snake population.

Wondertec International provides a remarkable new building technology with a cost-effective alternative to cinder block or pre-cast concrete walls, utilizing its patent pending process for the construction of perimeter, privacy, security, and noise abatement walls. The Wondertec walls are as much as 40% less expensive to build than conventional walls.

Wondertec International announced earlier that its unique wall system had been approved by Miami-Dade County Building Code Compliance Office for construction of such walls not only in Miami-Dade County but throughout the State of Florida. Miami-Dade County uses a building code that was significantly revised and improved after Hurricane Andrew, portions of which are now included in Florida Building Code as “High Velocity Hurricane Zone” (HVHZ)). This code is generally regarded as the most stringent building code in the United States. To achieve this approval, Wondertec International prepared extensive engineering analysis, detailed drawings and embarked on a rigorous testing program.

The Patented Wondertec construction process allows the pre-stressed concrete-stucco Wondertec wall to be built through established vegetation areas and over underground utility areas with minimal disruption.

The Wondertec wall also provides a hollow core on double sided walls, which can house and conceal security surveillance systems, thereby creating a fortified perimeter security wall.
“These test results, along with Wondertec’s Green rating for environmental friendliness and architecturally flexible designs, makes it the wall construction approach of choice for federal, state and local governmentally funded and private projects,” states Stan Rodimon, executive vice-president of the company.

NEW WALL-BUILDING TECHNOLOGY PASSES HURRICANE TESTING

Wondertec Walls Meet Highest Wind Velocity Requirements on the Continent

LOXAHATCHEE, FL – Wondertec International is pleased to announce the completion of the testing of Wondertec walls up to 15 feet in height in hurricane wind velocity zones up to 150 miles per hour. Testing was conducted by Fenestration Testing Laboratory, Inc. in Hialeah, Florida and tests were conducted in accordance with the Florida building codes. By passing this rigorous testing, this allows walls up to 15 feet in height to be built using the Wondertec process in Key West, Florida and throughout the Caribbean. These areas have the highest wind velocity requirements on the continent.

This remarkable new building technology provides consumers with a cost-effective alternative to cinder block or pre-cast concrete walls, utilizing its patent pending process for the construction of perimeter, privacy, security, and noise abatement walls.

An independent engineering consulting firm has stated the following: "Wondertec is a unique system, which combines the application of wood fence and mini pre-stressing to a new level and competes with conventional CBS (concrete block stucco)walls. The finished product looks the same as a conventional CBS wall but is superior due to the fact that it does not require continuous wall footings or grade beams and piles where weak soils exist, provides better barrier against sound transmission and is free of stepped type cracks commonly and frequently associated with CBS walls."

The construction process allows the pre-stressed concrete-stucco Wondertec wall to be built through established vegetation areas and over underground utility areas with minimal disruption.

The Wondertec wall also provides a hollow core on double sided walls, which can house and conceal security surveillance systems, thereby creating a fortified perimeter security wall. “We are proud to have joined the Wondertec Family,” states Ben Dispenziere, executive vice president of Lacerte Builders, Inc. (south Florida’s largest Wondertec International wall contractor.) Dispenziere continues, “They have brought us the opportunity to deliver win--win--win scenarios. This is a wall system that can adapt to an architect's creative design features, and has surpassed the Dade County Hurricane standards, at significantly less than the escalating cost of block walls.”

COMPANY LAUNCHES NEW WALL-BUILDING TECHNOLOGY

System Receives Miami-Dade Building Code Approval

LOXAHATCHEE, FL – Wondertec International announced today that its unique wall system has been approved by the Miami-Dade County Building Code Compliance Office for construction of such walls not only in Miami-Dade County but throughout the state of Florida. Miami-Dade County uses a building code that was significantly revised and improved after Hurricane Andrew, portions of which are now included in Florida Building Code as "High Velocity Hurricane Zone" (HVHZ)). This code is generally regarded as the most stringent building code in the United States. To achieve this approval, Wondertec International prepared extensive engineering analysis, detailed drawings and embarked on a rigorous testing program, subjecting walls to up to 234 miles per hour three-second gust wind velocity.

The wall system has also been tested for rigorous freeze-thaw conditions and noise abatement.

The Wondertec wall is not only significantly less expensive to construct as compared to the conventional concrete walls, it can be erected in less than half the time and does not require below-ground continuous concrete footings, grade beams or piles. This allows the pre-stressed concrete-stucco Wondertec wall to be built through established vegetation and over underground utility areas with minimal disruption. The Wondertec wall also provides a hollow core in double sided walls, which can house and conceal security systems (cameras, lighting, cable and power), thereby creating a fortified perimeter security wall. This wall system is superior to any wall we have installed over the past 16 years and will change the future of residential, commercial and utility wall construction,” states James Royo, president of Shoreline Foundations, Inc., south Florida’s largest Wondertec International wall contractor.

Wondertec International, utilizing its remarkable building technology and patented process for the construction of privacy, security, and noise abatement walls, provides consumers with a cost-affective alternative to concrete block, cast-in place or precast concrete walls.
