Integrated Wall Systems erects barrier at Home Hardware HQ
St. Jacobs, ON - The first wall from down under has gone up in Canada - at the Home Hardware headquarters in St. Jacobs, Ontario.
"From an engineering perspective, it's pretty impressive," says Scott Courtemanche, maintenance manager at Home Hardware Ltd.. "We're very pleased with how it's turned out - both from a quality and a price point of view."
The 15-foot-high, 350-foot-long structure imported from Australia's Modular Wall Systems and erected by Integrated Wall Systems of Perth County, ON went up in just nine days and serves as both a sound barrier and a security wall to the building supplies retailer.
Susan Faber, one of Integrated Wall Systems' three owners, says while most barrier walls are made of concrete or wood, "ours are built out of foam core concrete board panels that can be stacked up to 18 feet tall. They use a third of the concrete found in traditional block walls, they're just as strong and they can be erected or taken down very easily."
What's more, she continues, "our walls are aesthetically pleasing just the way they're made - but can be finished in paint, stucco, brick, wood or stone, depending on personal taste."
Integrated Wall Systems manufactures perimeter walls that range in application from decorative pool surrounds to highway sound barriers.
