HercuWall is a panelized system that is produced in a factory and assembled on the job site. ShearStrip technology eliminates the need for vertical rebar, Lafarge says.
“Along with EPS foam insulation and LafargeHolcim concrete, HercuWall achieves significant improvements in resilience, sustainability and cost efficiency compared to traditional wood-frame construction,” the company adds.
“This agreement perfectly aligns with our mission to provide production homebuilders with demonstrated forward-looking technology they need,” said Maik Strecker, head of growth and innovation for LafargeHolcim in North America.
