TECHNICAL ASPECTS

The Power Build Structures system has been tested to ensure durability, strength, and stability. The carbon steel connectors and pins have been tested to ensure the connectors resist rusting through repeated exposure to salt. The glulam posts and beams are engineered for precision straightness, making them both stronger and straighter than traditional solid wood.
A completed Power Build Structures building has been tested for its stability through even the harshest of earthquakes. It was put through a simulation test scaled to 1.25 times more intense than the Great Hanshin Earthquake of Kobe, Japan which was 7.2 on the Richter Scale. A video including this test can be viewed on the Power Build Structures YouTube channel.
