Frequently Asked Questions

  • SYSTEM 3E is a ground-breaking technology for the construction of ecological, energy-saving and economic walls in all types of buildings. The technology is based on 3E Elements characterized by two innovations: a material based on perlite, that makes the SYSTEM 3E the thinnest and warmest single layer walls in Europe and a unique shape, making the installation process quick and dry stacking. The adopted geometry of the Morse’ taper on the surfaces joining adjacent elements eliminate all degrees of freedom between the blocks, the finished partitions are characterized by above-average strength and safety, what is demonstrated by the highest, possible fire classification and impact strength (REI-240+M). The production process requires minimal use of energy and water, making our products and finished houses in perfect balance with the environment.

  • The price per square meter of finished wall, including labor, is similar to traditional methods. Most of the savings come from labor time and the lack of additional materials needed. Our clients are small and medium contractors and developers as well as individual clients. The final price will depend on the volume of the order. If you want to receive a quote, please send the cross-section project or dimensions of the walls without window and door openings.

  • SYSTEM 3E offers to individual clients a comprehensive house construction service in a developer standard, based on typical, individual and adaptation projects. SYSTEM 3E customer advisors carry out the process of building a house from beginning to end, also providing support in formal and legal issues such as obtaining a building permit. SYSTEM 3E developers offer the sale of 3E elements for the needs of smaller or larger investment projects, e.g. single-family housing estates, terraced houses or duplexes. 3E elements can also be used as wall filling in skeleton frames. Industrial halls and outbuildings can also be built in SYSTEM 3E technology.

    The main areas of the SYSTEM 3E activities include the production and distribution of structural elements dedicated to constructing external walls (SYSTEM 3E EKO+) as well as internal walls (SYSTEM 3E INTERNAL). These structural elements are offered throughout Poland and the European Union. Export activities are carried out to European markets, including Spain, Portugal, Scandinavia, Benelux, or the UK as well as to Asia, South Korea. Australia and North America (Canada and the USA) are likely to start importing in 2024. 

  • SYSTEM 3E is the only manufacturer of shaped structural elements made of natural material – perlite. The technology was introduced to the market in 2018, and is protected by several patents concerning the composition, shape and manufacturing process. SYSTEM 3E intellectual property is covered within the European Union construes, USA, China, India and Eurasia. The main featured making the technology unique are listed below:
     

    The innovative characters of SYSTEM 3E technology is expressed by two innovations: a material based on perlite, that makes the SYSTEM 3E the thinnest and warmest single layer walls in Europe, and a unique shape, making the installation process quick and dry stacking. The adopted geometry of the Morse’ taper on the surfaces joining adjacent elements eliminate all degrees of freedom between the blocks, the finished partitions are characterized by above-average strength and safety. Moreover, the production processes require minimal use of energy and water, making our products and finished houses in perfect balance with the environment.
     

    Perlite is a natural lightweight aggregate. At SYSTEM 3E it is used as the primary raw materials in the production process of 3E elements. Thanks to the material characteristics embodied in perlite, 3E elements demonstrate high thermal and acoustic insulation in contract to other traditionally used construction materials. In combination with mineral binder, perlite creates a material that is warm and durable at the same time, therefore, houses made in SYSTEM 3E technology are characterized by above average load-bearing capacity and high thermal insulation making the additional thermal insulations obsolete. Other materials characteristics including low water absorption, high vapor permeability and stable pH, create healthy and safe environment and healthy microclimate. Minimized water absorption of 3E elements results in dry and robust product over life-time, especially giving stable thermal and load-bearing performance.


    Ecological production process: minimized water consumption on the manufacturing and construction processes, minimized initial product’s CO2 emission, make SYSTEM 3E in a perfect balance with the environment. SYSTEM 3E using technology that is 100% recyclable material and minimizing waste generated at the construction site (insulations, mortars, etc.). Maximized energy performance of the building resulting in significant savings on air conditioning in warm climates and heating in cold and moderate climates.

  • The competitiveness of the SYSTEM 3E technology stems directly from its innovative character, the unique shape, employed material and production process:

    • The technology is suitable for external and internal load-bearing walls, its mortarless character make the technology rapid and significantly reducing time of construction.

    • Exclusion of mortar during wall construction reduces downtime on-site, eliminates the necessity of skilled labor.

    • Modularity and precision in construction decreased the risk of construction incompatibilities and simplifies architectural and structural design.

    • Mortar-free assembly enhances the durability of the structure and reduces waste on site.

    • Single layer walls, 352 mm thick, with no required insulation as specified in Technical Data Sheet.

    • Lightweight material for handling and transport, eliminating the need for heavy machinery on-site.

    • Increased floor area due to the thin character of thermally insulating walls.

    • Safety derived from the high load-bearing capacity od SYSTEM 3E elements and their high fire resistance.

    • Low water absorption and vapor permeability directly impacting the building durability, frost resistance and dimensional stability.
