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.
