Steel Panel Foundations - What is it?

The Marino International SPF is composed of 54 Mils Steel Studs and MgO Decking forming an Impenetrable Union of Strength and Flexibility. The heart of this SPF composite foundation system is the framework of galvanized-steel studs and tracks, when combined complete the ideal structural support for our innovative magnesium-oxide (MgO) composite wall; two panels fused to each side of an insulating, waterproof extruded-polystyrene core.

With a higher compressive strength than concrete, this International Code Council-approved MgO panel is waterproof, nonconductive, and impact-resistant and also resists insects and backfill damage. The end result is a dry, living-room-quality area which is suitable for a variety of uses, as well as a structure that is ready for drywall and can be easily customized to suit any building site and house plan.

Built-in Assurances: The SPF "foundation" system has undergone rigorous testing and review by nationally recognized testing laboratories and regulatory authorities. Each foundation design is signed and sealed by a licensed structural or civil engineer to provide homeowners, contractors and local building authorities with documented assurance of its structural integrity.
