Quad-Lock Building Systems and their local Dealer have teamed up to help a family that has been significantly impacted as a result of the devastating fires. They will be donating Quad-Lock Building System materials to help build a fire resistant home.
“We empathize with those who have lost their homes” expresses Hubert Max Kustermann, CEO of Quad-Lock Building Systems “We want to help the best way we know how – donating our product to a family in need and by letting others know about the fire resistant benefits of building with concrete, especially in forest fire prone areas.”
Quad-Lock Building Systems will donate the needed Quad-Lock components to rebuild the exterior walls and provide the required technical support to the contractor who builds the home. To be considered, simply phone Quad-Lock Building Systems at 1-888-711-5625 or go to their website at www.quadlock.com. You must enter by October 8th, 2003.

Quad-Lock Building Systems is a Surrey, BC based company that began in 1994 with the purpose of providing homeowners with an alternative to stick-frame buildings –an energy efficient system that would provide families with more safety, but still offer exceptional versatility for building a home of any design.
Quad-Lock panels are made from expanded polystyrene, which are assembled according to your house plan. There is an interior and exterior panel, which forms a cavity. Concrete is poured into the cavity to form your walls. This Insulated Concrete Form system offers many benefits when compared to other types of construction. These include: walls that are airtight and better insulated (lower energy costs), quieter (STC Rating of 57), fire resistant (4 hour rating), resistant to natural disasters (earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, etc.), non-toxic and not susceptible to rot. Quad-Lock Building Systems also offers Quad-Deck, an insulating roof and floor forming system which, when used with Quad-Lock, completes your fire-resistant shell of the house.
