Re: Tilt Up systems

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Neal,

We would think about a 4 inch thick panel with one wwm in the middle. There
are some psycological reasons for not using the system you describe. I have
somebody selling this system in a construction exposition, but people don't
like "poliestyrene" houses, and they don't trust us engineers very much.
They want something "hard", that's also why the lightweight steel
construction is not very popular over here.

Thanks,

Walter
