No more support columns. STEKO® isn’t limited to building houses. The fast construction and affordable costs of STEKO® are ideal for businesses and factories. STEKO® can be built up to 10 story’s high without compromising any structural stability. All walls are load bearing meaning that there is a reduced need for pylons or other supports. This increases the versatility as it is possible to have large open areas, which can later have partition walls added if required.
Create a healthy learning environment. Neurologists have found a link between healthy brain development in children and the use of natural building materials in their surrounding environment. Timber as opposed to steel, concrete or other man-made products produces a healthy, welcoming environment for students. STEKO® blocks are also fast to assemble and are reusable, which makes them ideal for the construction of portable classrooms.
STEKO®’s load bearing capabilities mean that you can live today knowing that you’ve already planned for tomorrow. All STEKO® walls are load bearing. This means that if particular walls require handrails for wheelchair or elderly access then they can be easily installed when required. Installation can be done without the need for reconstructing the wall to find noggins and support studs. Adding support rails as an afterthought in a traditional timber framed house can be very costly and time consuming. Due to the load bearing walls, STEKO® is ideal for all buildings that may require wheelchair accessibility. Plan today, so that you can be prepared for tomorrow.
