Hurricane, Earthquake and Fire Resistant Homes & Buildings

 

In 2013 Dwelltech Industries began developing our Arches Building System using industrial rollforming machines and 5 ton galvanized/galvalume steel coils to create a structural building shell with potential life spans of 3 generations. We then worked on the materials and methods to make the Arches structural shell a complete building enclosure system which can withstand hurricanes, fires and earthquakes. A unique building enclosure system which is long lasting, safer to build and uses less materials per sq.ft to build.

Arches Building kits are permanent buildings constructed with traditional trades and labour.

No specialized training, cranes or heavy equipment is required to erect, assemble or finish an Arches Building Kit.

Arches Building Kits are installed on concrete slab on grade,  raised concrete foundations or Steel frame floor system on steel or concrete columns.

At the core of every Arches Building Kit is an extremely solid building form, the arch. We combine this tried and true structural form with modern technologies and manufacturing processes to offer the ultimate in climate change prepared homes and buildings.
