Sustainable Holdings Inc. today announced the issuance of a U.S. patent for its groundbreaking residential track and panel building system, WalKor®. Continuing the company's mission to further healthy living through technology and innovation, WalKor® is a state-of-the-art structural frame that combines ease and efficiency for builders and homeowners alike.
The new WalKor® system delivers pre-fabricated, customizable building panels that can form any architectural design and adheres to the 2012 International Residential Building Code. Each panel comes ready-made with steel structural studs imbedded in expanded polystyrene (EPS). As the need for cost-effective, energy-efficient housing solutions is on the rise, the WalKor® system is the perfect foundation for the Sustainable Holdings Inc. offering and will be a key component in the company's plan to build 100 affordable and sustainable homes in the U.S. this year.
"The issuance of the WalKor® patent brings Sustainable Holdings one step closer to transforming the way homes are built in the United States," said Alex H. Edwards III, CEO of Sustainable Holdings Inc. "By bringing together distinctive building elements in an innovative, never-before-seen way, we offer a structurally sound, easy-to-assemble, and durable system that increases energy efficiency for homeowners and decreases labor costs for homebuilders."
Homes built with the WalKor® panel system will also be termite-resistant, moisture-proof, and flame retardant.
