The biggest cost in projects is structure. Two major factors contribute to this cost — labour and Materials. Palette racking, a highly engineered and efficient structure, is incredibly affordable and looks great. It doesn’t require a ute full of tools, nor a lot of man hours to assemble.

You can then clad, insulate and line the building efficiently with one material — such as composite styrene panels. Colourbond either side of 250 millimetres worth of high-performance hard insulation provides all the benefits of water proofing, internal lining, good looks and incredible insulation quality — it also has its own structural spanning capabilities.

Simply pin composite styrene panels to the palette racking structure and you have completed walls and roof instantaneously. Efficiency equals affordability.
