Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) October 1, 2008
Alternative Construction Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: ACCY) announced today that it is making its galvanized steel ACTech® Structural Insulated (SIP) Panel System Technical Manual widely available to architects, engineers and designers for the first time. The manual is designed to answer any of the questions asked by construction professionals intent on specifying materials that address the rapidly growing demand for energy efficient design and environmentally friendly building products. The ACTech® Panel System addresses many of the concerns left unanswered by the traditional commodity construction materials such as lumber and brick. By specifying the ACTech® Panel System, industry professionals and savvy consumers can expect to enjoy: a turnkey structural package delivered directly to the job site; a completed structural building envelope that cuts the construction time by as much as 30-60%; monthly energy savings up to 70%; mold, mildew and fungus resistance; disaster resistant strength; outstanding indoor air quality; excellent acoustical values; speed and ease of use; higher resale values; and many others.
The Technical Manual is designed to provide detailed information to the architects, engineers and designers seeking the methods and materials that take advantage of the trends in green consumerism and the need for disaster resilient structures in the face of increasing severe weather phenomena. The Technical Manual will be offered under registered copy and be easily downloadable through an FTP site. Requests will be serviced through our website or by email at: design(at)actechpanel.com.
"This is a significant milestone for this company," stated Austin Woods, Design Department Manager. "Now, for the first time, architects and designers will be able to specify our SIP system and provide consumers and builders what they seek," he added.
Alternative Construction Technologies, Inc. (ACT) possesses a unique and patented construction technology called the ACTech® Panel System that is used in the design and erection of state-of-the-art "green" buildings in commercial, residential, industrial, military, pre-engineered and modular building applications, as well as patented safe rooms. Generically known as structural insulated panel (SIP), ACT's revolutionary and efficient construction solution utilizes an inherently better "next generation", galvanized steel "skin" SIP system to complete energy efficient, stronger, safer, faster, Class-1 fire rated and more economical structures than conventional wood and brick based building products or first generation SIP products. The patented ACTech® Panel is environmentally-friendly and easier to construct with - not only saving labor cost and cutting construction time, but also reducing recurring monthly heating and cooling energy bills consistently by 30-50% and often as much as 70%. Very importantly, the ACTech® Panel possesses disaster resistant strength and has tested stronger than conventional concrete block or wood frame construction. In combination with FEMA compliant hurricane projectile tests, the ACTech® Panel continues to meet the most stringent wind, projectile and uplift codes in the nation levied by the 2006 Florida Building Code. The ACTech® Panel System offers builders and consumers many competitive and comparative advantages of use due to its wide range of attributes. As severe weather phenomenon continues to intensify, needs for more energy efficient buildings amplify, this new construction technology gains awareness, or hurricane and tornado-prone states establish new building codes and rebuild from recent weather disasters, ACT believes its' products will be in greater demand. ACT has recently added ancillary services, including design, consulting and construction through its various general contracting subsidiaries. When specifying the ACTech® Panel System as the "green" structural building material into any construction application, it is most probable that a LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design), Florida Green Building Coalition, FP&L (NYSE: FPL) BuildSmart and/or Energy Star rating will be readily achieved.
