Revels Construction of SW Florida to Compare Results of Projectile Tests on Bradenton Job Site

Alternative Construction Company, Inc. announced today that its ACTech Panel System will be compared in a test of hurricane projectile strength against conventional building materials. Revels Construction of SW Florida will be conducting the test at a current jobsite in Bradenton. The presentation is also to include a demonstration of the speed and ease of use of the ACTech Panel System and many of the other inherent "efficiency" qualities of the system. Dave Revels, the Founder and co-owner of Revels Construction and a former Manatee County Building Inspector stated, "As far as we are concerned, this is the state of the art in housing technology. We have not found the number of features and benefits found in the ACTech structural insulated panel in any other materials at any cost." The demonstration will begin at 1PM, June 22 at 4419 37th Street East (2 blocks North from State Road 70 on 37th Street E).

To be compliant with hurricane projectile test standards, FEMA requires that an 8 foot, 6 pound "2 X 4" be projected at a structure or construction material at a speed of 34 m.p.h. without penetration. A "wind" cannon will be present to launch the projectiles. The demonstration will compare results of the "2 X 4" projectiles shot at a wood framed (and sheathed) construction method, a block based construction method and the ACTech Panel system. Spectators, builders and builder associations, broadcast and print media and potential home buyers are invited to view the demonstration.

Steve Rechtsteiner, also a co-owner and Founder of Revels Construction, works with customers to design their homes to meet cost and feature specifications. "As an architect, an engineer, a national plans examiner and a builder, I am able to achieve customer goals while achieving excellent economics. More often than not, our homes are built at a cost of $78-90 per square foot base price. This while providing the very highest quality, secure and energy efficient home. The long-term value of 35-70% in monthly energy bill savings cannot be over stated."
