SanteQ lightweight walling systems are an innovative new building technology for non-load bearing wall applications.
Made with a patent-pending concrete that uses 100% recycled polystyrene and GGBFS in a permanent high-density cellulose fibre board shutter system, SanteQ is less than 30% the weight of brick and mortar, and provides excellent
acoustic, thermal and fire-retardant properties.
It is ideal in a wide range of applications, including:
At 550 to 600 kg/m3, less than 30% of masonry walls, SanteQ delivers distinct design and engineering benefits.
SanteQ uses non-flammable boards and has a 2 hour fire-rating. The system does not give off toxic gases.
Air trapped in the infill provides 2 to 3x the sound insulation and noise reduction of a traditional wall.
Polystyrene is an excellent insulator, reducing heat transfer and delivering 6x better R-value than conventional brick.
Using 100% recycled polystyrene, recycled plastic spacers, GGBFS and cellulose fibre boards, SanteQ has among the lowest carbon footprints of any construction system.
SanteQ is quick and clean to install and simplifies construction logistics, giving you predictable programme timing and reduced construction times.
The SanteQ lightweight concrete walling system uses pre-engineered cellulose fibre boards with spacers allowing for various wall thicknesses.
The void is then filled with a pre-blended cementitious, 100% recycled polystyrene, cementitious and admixture composite infill.
The wall can be skim plastered and painted or simply painted or can be covered with ceramic tile, wallpaper, wood panels and other materials. Bespoke fastening systems will withstand loads of at least 40 kg.
Construction companies are using SanteQ alternative building technology to build high-quality, lightweight walls quickly and easily.
This 6-storey office building in Sandton was converted into a 450-room hotel using SanteQ's lightweight walling.
Cipla Pharmaceuticals rebuilt its manufacturing facility with 1 800 m2 of SanteQ walling.
An existing 6-storey office building is in the process of being gutted to a bare shell for student accommodation.
SanteQ Lightweight Building Technology is a co-development by Sanjo Fabtech Sterling (a wholly owned subsidiary of Sanjo Construction) and CemteQ Building Solutions.
Sanjo Fabtech Sterling was formed to offer a patented, ground-breaking Alternative Building Technology (ABT) which utilises a permanent formwork system for load bearing applications. Realising the need for a lighter-weight alternative for
non-load bearing walls, Sanjo Fabtech Sterling partnered with CemteQ, a leader in smart, sustainable cementitious technology, to develop a new cementitious infill that is lightweight, insulating and fire-resistant and SanteQ Liteweight
Building Technology was formed to offer lightweight solutions to the construction sector.
