SanteQ lightweight walling systems are an Agrément SA-approved building technology for non-load bearing wall applications.

A specially designed permanent shutter system with a composite lightweight concrete infill, SanteQ lightweight walling systems are simple, fast and convenient to install, and offer the permanent, high-quality feel of masonry, with less than 30% of the weight.

It's light on the structure. And the environment.

Why SanteQ Walling Systems?

Lightweight

At 550 to 650 kg/m3, less than 30% of masonry walls, SanteQ delivers distinct design and engineering benefits.

Fire Resistant

SanteQ uses non-flammable boards and has a 2 hour fire-rating. The system does not give off toxic gases.

Sound Insulation

Air trapped in the infill provides 2 to 3x the sound insulation and noise reduction of a traditional wall.

Thermal Insulation

Polystyrene is an excellent insulator. By reducing heat transfer, SanteQ walls deliver 6x better R-value than conventional brick.

Low Environmental Impact

100% recycled polystyrene, recycled plastic spacers, GGBFS and cellulose fibre boards: SanteQ has among the lowest carbon footprints of any construction system.

Simple Construction

SanteQ is quick and clean to install and simplifies construction logistics, giving you predictable programme timing and reduced construction times.

Installation

The SanteQ walling system uses pre-engineered cellulose fibre boards with spacers allowing for various wall thicknesses. The void is then filled with a pre-blended lightweight concrete comprising 100% recycled polystyrene, cement and admixture composite. The wall can be skim plastered and painted or simply painted or covered with ceramic tile, wallpaper, wood panels and other materials. Bespoke fastening systems have been tested to withstand point loads of at least 40kg.

Applications

SanteQ lightweight walling systems are ideal for non-load bearing walls in hotels, student accommodation, multi-storey affordable housing developments, schools, hospitals and remodelling of existing multi-storey buildings. They can also be used in new builds with lightweight and energy saving considerations.
