Commercial Building designed and built
with magnesiacore technologyinside and outside: Exterior panel system using square 4' x 4' (122x122cm) panels, mechanically fastened to metal framing with screws and flexible caulked joints. Exterior decorative coating applied directly without plaster base coat. Self countersunk screws, efficient secure flexible mechanical fastening. 18mm (3/4")
in floor panels on metal joists @ 30cm (12") o/c
engineered floor system. Natural true square corners.
Interior ceiling bulkheads with magnesiacore used as drywall. One material
for the whole project,
maximizing dry construction with speed, precision and efficiency.
Non-combustible hotel construction
application: A hotel
roof structure made with engineered metal framing and metal deck
with non-combustible 15mm (~5/8") magnesiacore applied
over it with self-countersink screws. Asphalt shingles are applied to magnesiacore using crown roofing staples (like those used
on plywood). Plywood was not permitted
in thenon-combustible roof structure, as in new multi story hotels.
cladding with magnesiacore and stucco:
Working in extreme cold from -10C to -25C
makes using wet
plaster risky. Chemically cured
or heated wet plaster avoids freezing but can give unpredictable results. Magnesiacore
applied with screws make cold temperatures irrelevant to
making a good stucco base.
Perfectly smooth, uniform
and consistent quality regardless of working temperatures. Exterior
texture coating spray-applied or rolled-on. Self-countersunk screws for flexible fasteners. Natural corners without metal trim to risk rust
that weakens the system. Installed in a ratio of three day's
worth of labor
(when using magnesiacore dry panels) instead of three weeks to do wet
plastering. Perfect stucco rendering without plaster trowel marks,
undulation and uncertainty of wet plaster.
Magnesiacore was trusted to provide
the restorative and protective finish to
help preserve a medieval
structure andprotect ancient art and artifacts within
building part of the architectural treasure
within the famous Piazza San Marco of Venice Italy.
High Quality Historical
Buildings: These old museums
achieve very detailed wall work in
lieu of using a cement plaster or masonry and whenever paper or plastic
faced materials will be insulting to the areas architecture:
Sea Side Hotel Construction:
Magnesiacore was selected for its natural
resistance to salt damage and ocean humidity for the facade of this
new beach front luxury hotel.
Facility Facade &
Interior Makeover Material:
was selected for its impact and damage resistance
to clad the walls of this sport stadium.
Commercial Store Facade Makeover:
Two layer system, with one layer of magnesiacore over a second layer.
Exterior decorative coating applied directly without wet plaster base coat. Self-countersunk screw mechanical fastening. Natural corners without metal trim to rust or weaken the system. Faster installation using a ratio of three day's labor when using magnesiacore dry panels instead of three weeks to do wet plaster. Perfect stucco renderings without plaster trowel marks, undulations and the uncertainty associated with curing wet applied cement plaster.
one layer panel system
For Highly Detailed Wall and Ceiling Works:
Work in three dimensions by cutting and
details made possible by layering solid
Encapsulating to Reduce Demolition, Disposal and Removal:
Applied over existing
materials to receive new finishing and roofing.
Industrial Non combustible
For Below Ground Construction:
Above Ground Construction:
Exterior Building Makeover Systems:
Non-insulated solid masonry building
covered with insulation, reflective foil wrap,
then magnesiacore board and finishing system.
Balcony railing and divider infill panels:
Pre-finished aluminum sheets laminated to magnesiacore,
allowing texture coating to match the building facade on the exterior side.
Pool Room Wall and Ceiling Board: Mixed natural wood and panel
finishes for an enclosed residential
pool room subject to high humidity, chlorine, mold damage in the closed
space of a very cold climate. Interior walls and ceiling sections
done in magnesiacore, jointed and filled with highly resistant filler. Cedar strips used on slopes. Decorative coating applied directly without wet plaster base coat.
High-Rise Apartment Low Impact
Apartment Buildings often require carpeted areas to reduce noise
transmission from upper to lower floors. This video shows a penthouse suite having its
carpeting removed and replaced with a hard,
painted magnesiacore surface.Two layers of magnesiacore glued together over the original
cushion underpad. Magnesiacore lets hard flooring
(painted, ceramic tiles, etc.) comply with most noise rules of multi-story
Commercial Flooring: Unique commercial flooring installations installed with a floating adhesive system.
Application with Acoustical Goo to increase sound dampening.9mm (3/8") white and grey in large 4' x 8' and
32" x 48" panels. Adhered to existing wood subfloor without surface fasteners.
Basement Dry Floor Subfloor: 1/4" Magnesiacore is applied in two layers, glued and stapled together into a 1/2" solid floating concrete-dense mass.
Here it was applied over a thick waterproof foam
insulation to further combat an existing damp basement,
and finished with a snap-together pre-finished plank flooring. An insulated
dry floor that won't rot while providing high sound dampening, made this new
warm and quiet basement family room.
Blending ancient and modern: Centuries-old timbers reclaimed from a church demolition, reconfigured to build a shelter canopy
with magnesiacore over the ancient hardwood superstructure. Magnesiacore is used in a sandwich panel with torch-applied asphaltic membrane roofing over the top layer. On the bottom panel,
a penetrating stain is applied to blend the visible layer of panels with the
exposed dark ancient wood structure.
The result is an ancient-looking brand new structure
built with modern materials and methods.
Bathroom, Shower Wall,
Ceiling Board - Case Study: Retail customer goes to the local building supply to pick up cement board and drywall to do a new bathroom interior for his house. While there he saw the magnesiacore mock-up and samples and chose magnesiacore 1/2" (12mm) white for the whole bathroom
instead. By doing this he eliminated the use of
several dissimilar materials in drywall and cement board
and avoiding transition joints between painted and tiled surfaces to reduce waste. No transition required between paint and tiled surfaces. One
board material to do the whole bathroom
instead of two or three.
Kitchen Countertop - Case Study:
Old shop kitchen
counter covered with magnesiacore over existing particleboard using brad nails.
New countertop base for application of mosaic, ceramic,or stone tiles.
Ceramic Floor Tile Underlayment over Plywood Subfloor:
1/4" (9mm) magnesiacore,
scored and snap to size, replaces the old stapled down wire lath and scratch coat.
Received new granite tiles with less mess
and downtimewaiting for scratch coats.
