Engineering Your Protection
Designed and engineered with USG's structural concrete panel and a simplified modular construction methodology, the UWPS is changing the way people look at modular. Customizable based on threat assessment requirements and aesthetic needs, our wall design can look and perform to your specifications.
THE UNIFIED WALL PANEL SYSTEM CAN BE USED IN A VARIETY OF CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS, INCLUDING TRADITIONAL STICK BUILD, RETROFIT AND PERMENT, SEMI-PERMANENT OR PORTABLE MODULAR STRUCTURES. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT OUR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR, ALLAN MANGOLD AT:
(760) 468-3241 or AMangold@PTGus.com
Can meet AT/FP requirements per UFC 4-010-01 when combined with our patented ThreatStop(TM) panel insert and is commercially available.
Has met UL 752 Level 8 ballistic protection with the use of our ThreatStop(TM) panel (up to 7.62mm NATO).
Can meet STC and RF and EM requirements with the use of our ThreatStop panel. Please contact us for more information.
Provides protection from high wind/Windborne Debris, seismic and fire.
Simplified and faster off-site construction means site preparation can occur simultaneously and on-site installation can be accomplished with reduced labor requirements which equals time and costs savings.
The UWPS has a very long service life (50+ years) and is easy to maintain or replace.
The UWPS can be used in traditional new-build, retrofit and modular (panelized) build projects. It has been proven to be a successful alternative to traditionally framed walls (see page 2 of our UWPS flyer below and the bottom of this page for a construction video for a successful example that garnered a first place award by Modular Building Institute)
The UWPS is an aesthetically pleasing solution for both the interior and exterior as both can be sheathed in a wide variety of materials to meet client's desire. (see examples of exterior cladding below)
A modular build at Murray Middle School at NAWS China Lake in Ridgecrest, California using the UWPS saved our client $3M in labor costs alone. Murray was awarded First Place for Permanent Modular Education Building over 10,000 SF by Modular Building Institute. That same year, it survived 6.4 and 7.1 earthquakes with no damage. The school was used as a shelter in place for refugees/first responders and the home base for World Kitchen Organization who fed both.
EXTERIOR OF CAFETERIA
Choices for exterior and interior cladding are the same as a traditional stick built structure.
GYMNASIUM INTERIOR - Murray Middle School gymnasium is a panelized two story wood truss structure designed and engineered by Protective Technologies. It is the only California Division of the State Architect approved structure of its kind. As it was built on the NAWS China Lake, it was designed to meet DoD Unified Facilities Criteria 4-010-01 requirements for Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection.
Our Multi-Hazards door and wall panel achieves UL8 rating in second round testing. Protective Technologies and our co-patent holder, AT/FP Associates, are now preparing for official UL 752 certification testing. Check back for official results!
