AV Light Steel
ROBUST BUILDING SYSTEM
AV Light Steel has incorporated this unique ABT. into it’s range of innovative system to add structural integrity and the solid feel as with conventional systems. This system is monolithic and therefore no structural cracks can ever occur, Thus, the system is structurally sound against forces of nature such as earthquakes, tornado’s and hurricanes.
AV’s Robust Building System
The "Robust Building System", is a unique approved , time saving and cost effective building method for
SUSTAINABLE HOUSING that can withstand 'forces of nature' such as earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes,
cyclones, floods, fires and termites.
The Robust Building System is a walling system that is designed to build stronger structures of all types
quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.

is virtually impossible to break through the wall.
eliminates the use of shuttering required with conventional methods and has an easy to use calculation
table that assists structural engineers with load calculations.
above and below ground.

possible for almost any type of floor slab to be placed on the walls with unsupported spans of up to
inconsistency in the quality of material supplied over a period of time.
The Robust Building System has a proven track record. The system has been in operation for the past 18 years
and has been used in various construction applications such as:
walls, Retaining walls, High security perimeter walls, Suspended floor slabs, Staircases, Infill walls, Game
Lodges, underground sewerage systems, water storage tanks both above and below ground and Silo's up to
18,000 ton capacity to name but a few.
The Robust Building System has been endorsed by the American Home builders Association and passed by the
Dade County Building Code, Miami, USA, which is recognized as one of the most stringent building departments
in the world. It holds all the necessary compliance certificates in South Africa such as National Home Builders
Registration Council approval and certification with "Agrément" South Africa.
Although the system has already been implemented and proven in construction of suspended floor slabs,
structural columns and structural boundary walls, it is currently in the process of certification through "Agremént" South Africa for all of the abovementioned applications.
