At PolyCare we continuously collaborate with professionals to find solutions for client-specific requirements. Our MAS block system offers unlimited options and configurations for various applications across a wide spectrum which includes housing, schools, hostels, clinics, industrial and commercial properties. It is time to get on board and take construction methods and materials to the next level!
We invite architects and engineers to team up with Polycare to offer clients the technological advances of our MAS block system. Our polymer concrete building solution can be applied to existing professional designs or incorporated during the planning phase of a project. With this collaboration it is possible to offer building solutions that are:
Many of the houses designed by PolyCare are „starter homes“ with the option of future expansion. Normally an extension to existing buildings is a complex undertaking. Every PolyCare house can be painted or plastered after construction. It is also possible to add paint to the MAS blocks during the production process.
Our technology opens up even more opportunities for the building industry. In South Africa 100% off-grid buildings will hit the market that are designed to have the lowest environmental impact possible.
Yes. Polycare’s MAS System is assessed and certified by Agrément South Africa as required for building with alternative methods in South Africa and also Namibia. Agrément is an independent organisation that evaluates the fitness for purpose of non-standardised building and construction products and systems by applying performance-based criteria in its assessment procedure. PolyCare’s MAS system has also been tested extensively in Germany and complies with German standards. Furthermore, Polycare’s MAS system is accepted by the City of Windhoek as a permanent structure and is financed by local banks.
The MAS elements have a relatively thin wall. The inside of the elements contain insulation cores. There are five basic blocks and some special blocks, such as the sanitary block that makes provision for the fitment of sanitaryware such as basins. The blocks are dry-stacked and anchored between the floor and ring beams with steel rods.
Polycare makes use of specialized design software which calculates the optimal and most efficient use of the elements based on the available planning documents. Existing plan layouts can be converted to the MAS system.
The MAS system is environmentally friendly and can even be used in water-scarce areas. This has been determined and certified by independent institutions. The manufacturing as well as the construction of the system requires very little water.
With the MAS system there are no restrictions in use and application. Buildings of any shapes and sizes are possible.
This is mainly subject to the planning of the respective construction project. Your options are unlimited when using MAS blocks
