SABs Composite Building Material

SABS™ is a multi-patented, composite building system that utilizes Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) as the core material for all structural members – walls, roof, floor – that is sprayed with a composite coating made up of a precise blend of sand, cement, glass fiber and other additives that, together, create a building shell that meets or exceeds all testing protocols and load requirements of the ICC-ES.

Intrinsically linked to the installation and application of the SABS™ building method is Strata’s patented analysis program that accurately predicts the performance capability of a building shell utilizing any architectural design under any set of climatic conditions.

SABS™ (Saebi Alternative Building System) is a simple system with only two parts: An EPS core that can range in thickness from 4 to 16 inches, depending on design and insulation needs, and a ¼ inch thick coating of reinforced concrete. Together these make a composite building system that is suitable for all portions of a building.
