Zipblock Hybrid Modular Building Systems Transcend the Limitations of Generic Building Systems
Zipblock Building Systems Are the Only Systems That Allow You to Seamlessly Transition Between Using Blocks and Panels When Building Walls
This picture demonstrates the key reason that our building system is hybrid . It shows a building block mated to a wall panel. You will be hard pressed to find another building system that implements both blocks and panels. Furthermore, outside of Zipblocks, there is no other system that provides effortless transitioning between blocks and panels!
Zipblock Building Systems Are Fully Interlocking
Unlike a lot of other systems that rely on stacking blocks, our building systems fully interlock! Zipblock blocks and panels lock together snugly. Walls created using our system are rigid, sturdy, and they act as if they were monolithic (one piece). Zipblock walls will not sag down into uneven foundations.
When making passes of large openings like a garage our 8-feet long blocks make the job easy. Our blocks simply traverse over large areas without the need of placing supports in place first. It is much easier to add supports after all your blocks are in position!
Our Systems Take Modular to the Extreme
In nature the simplest and most fundamental modular building system is the cubic lattice. This principal leads us to the conclusion that a modular building system that is based on perfect cubes would be the simplest and easiest to use.
Zipblock modular building systems are based on perfect cubes!
Presently all of our polyurethane building products are based on 4-inch-cubes. This means that every building panel is 4-inches-thick by some-multiple-of-4-inches-long by some-multiple-of-4-inches-tall! If follows that our blocks measure 4-inches-wide by 4-inches-thick by some-multiple-of-4-inches-long.
Because our current system is presently based on 4-inch-cubes, building with them is a piece of cake! At design time simply use a 4-inch grid to setup your floor plans. When it comes time to build the wall you’ll be able to build that wall very quickly and easily. The job will be so very easy because our products will lay out perfectly on the 4-inch-grid. Each 4-inch section of wall can be thought of as an atom that is lined up in a crystal lattice. Our products act just like toy-building-bricks! Only our toy-brick-like products have a strict cubic-based-nature to them.
Virtually Zero Waste Is Generated When Using Our Products
This picture shows a polyurethane foam building block that measures 8-feet-by-4-inches-by-4-inches. The Zipblock building system is based on cubes. The block in this picture is based on 4-inch-cubes. If you look closely you will see lines on the side of this block every 4-inches. The lines serve two main purposes. The lines allow to you determine the length of a block and they indicate where you can safely cut blocks into smaller lengths. When you cut a Zipblock into two sections there is no waste, you are only cutting a longer block into two smaller blocks(that are various lengths of 4-inch-cubes).
While you could build all your walls and then cut out windows and doors, this is not the way our system is intended for use. Needlessly cutting parts out of panels is a waste of time and money. With our system you never have to cut out sections of panels to create openings for doors and windows. With our system you use the largest panel sizes available wherever and whenever you can and then use blocks to create window and door openings.
More Zipblock Advantages Are Discussed Deeper Within Our Site
There are many more advantages that our building systems offer. Did you know that modular building systems are great for the DIYer? See the Uses section of our website and you’ll see a bookcase, table, wall unit and other things that we made out of Zipblocks. Did you know that polyurethane foam is per volume the best insulation mater around? Discussing all these thing on our homepage is not the suitable place to discuss all these things. Browse our website and you’ll discover more reasons as to by Zipblocks are so great.
