BamCore's stud-less Prime Wall System is extremely fast to assemble, it comes pre-cut, and makes installation of electrical and plumbing a breeze; saving you time, labor, and money.
Until now, the building industry has seen little in productivity or efficiency for many decades.* BamCore Prime Wall System’s is the future for fast, efficient, and better building.
The BamCore Prime Wall System is delivered to the job numbered and pre-cut for every door, window, switch, and outlet openings. Once the bottom plate is laid, individual 4’ wide panels are placed into position according to their number and nailed or screwed together. There is little to no job-site cutting needed of the Prime Panels, saving you time and reducing waste. The exterior walls of our 1800 sq. ft. prototype house were assembled in just two workdays. Interior walls were completed on the third day.
Because our wall system has a stud-less void between the two runs of panels, subcontractors handling electrical, plumbing, security, and media can be more efficient installing their initial rough wiring, plumbing, and cabling. Later, once the walls are closed, if an additional electric line is needed, an electrician can remove the box or outlet, use the existing line to pull a new wire to the source location and then bring both back to the switch or outlet, all without the interference of studs in the wall cavity.
The most challenging part of the rough installation is when an electrician or plumber wants to install laterally around a corner. In stud-based walls, heavy coring of the corner posts is required and still requires fishing through the tight right angle. In the BamCore Prime Wall and interior wall systems, there are usually no studs in the corners, making the lateral install much simpler. Once rough construction is complete, finish work like hanging cabinetry, trim, or appliances is a breeze. Because the entire Prime Wall is structurally a rigid panel, you don’t have to search for studs when hanging trim, cabinetry, mirrors or other heavy items. Also, because the panel surface is extremely flat, less time can be spent scribing the back edge of a cabinet or countertop to the wall.
