This system promises to be an ecological and efficient alternative for the future of construction, using recycled materials and offering both environmental and economic advantages.

The construction industry is one of the main sources of pollution, with concrete being a material with a high carbon footprint. In response to this problem, PLAEX, a Canadian company, developed a system called PLAEX Brick&Panel™.

This system promises to be an ecological and efficient alternative for the future of construction, using recycled materials and offering both environmental and economic advantages.

Like a building game

The PLAEX concept is defined as the world's first completely interlocking landscaping system. PLAEX blocks and panels are easily assembled from all sides, greatly simplifying landscaping projects. This system is ideal for retaining walls, path edges and other exterior structures. Although it has not yet achieved Canadian ASTM certification, it is expected to achieve it in 2025.

More solid and economical

PLAEX blocks have numerous advantages:

  • Moisture resistance: They have a very low absorption rate of 0,37%, which makes them highly resistant to moisture.
  • Durability: They are between 400% and 1.250% stronger than concrete or brick, significantly reducing the risk of breakage or damage.
  • Recycled Materials: They are made up of 90% of recycled materials, contributing to the reduction of waste.
  • CO2 reduction: Its use can reduce CO2 emissions by 138% compared to traditional construction solutions.
  • Economy: Savings of 5% to 30% on the total project cost can be achieved. Furthermore, the return on investment (ROI) is estimated between 200% and 400%, which means that it is possible to recover two to four times the initial investment.

Fast and efficient construction

The PLAEX construction method is designed to be three times faster than traditional methods, allowing you to build up to 80% faster than with conventional materials such as concrete. PLAEX blocks and panels easily integrate with existing structures and traditional finishing methods, such as dry walls.

PLAEX offers a innovative solution and sustainable for construction, with significant environmental and financial benefits. According to Dustin Bowers, founder of PLAEX Building Solutions, this technology can contribute to a better world and planet. For more information about this revolutionary concept, visit plaex.ca.
