Bautex Systems Introduces Bautex Block Engineered Wall System Solution

Bautex Systems today announced it will offer engi­neer­ing services for the Bautex Block wall system through a team of con­sult­ing engineers including Outlier Engi­neer­ing based in New Braunfels, Texas. Bautex also published a new series of engi­neer­ing and design examples created by Outlier Engi­neer­ing to demon­strate how an engi­neered Bautex Block wall is well suited for many common struc­tures including schools, gym­na­si­ums, office buildings and retail centers, providing sig­nif­i­cant benefits in energy effi­cien­cy, dura­bil­i­ty and life safety.

Bautex Block is an inno­v­a­tive com­bi­na­tion of the best parts of more familiar systems, such as tra­di­tion­al masonry and concrete,” explains Amy Stone, P.E., president of Outlier Engi­neer­ing. Working with Bautex customers, we can greatly simplify and shorten the design process by providing an engi­neered wall system that includes sealed struc­tur­al engi­neer­ing wall plans for their projects.”

Bautex is expanding its rela­tion­ships with struc­tur­al engineers to assist customers with spec­i­fy­ing Bautex Block for their building envelope. President Paul Brown says the engi­neered wall system offering will allow project design teams and struc­tur­al engineers of record to focus on the larger engi­neer­ing require­ments of their project, leaving design of the Bautex Block wall system to technical experts.

The Bautex Block engi­neered wall system offering will make the design process more efficient for project teams. Our con­sult­ing engineers bring the expertise in tying our Bautex wall system to the roof and floors and designing building elements with Bautex Block,” says Brown. These engi­neer­ing services are ideal for teams that need to focus on more complex issues in their plans, leaving the wall system engi­neer­ing to our team.”

Struc­tur­al engineers of record can continue providing the struc­tur­al design of the Bautex Block walls for their projects using widely under­stood design spec­i­fi­ca­tions from the American Concrete Institute’s Building Code Require­ments for Struc­tur­al Concrete — ACI 318. However, design teams now have an option to work with Bautex for an engi­neered wall system solution using Bautex Block, in order to simplify and shorten the design proecss for their projects.
