Honeycomb construction: It started with the pharohs.
The system is composed of a sandwich
construction that uses as its center
a lightweight Honeycomb of kraft
paper impregnated with resin and
bound together permanently by a special
adhesive, MOR-AD, from Morton
Chemical, Chicago, IL. Honeycomb
paper core panels in four foot widths
and varying lengths are used as floors,
walls, roof panels and internal partitions
of a house or commercial structure.
The panel thickness is determined
by local building codes and required
loads on each panel.
TAS Systems is classified as a component
manufacturer, building structural
wall, floor and roof panels. As
such, their operations fall within one
of the seven industrialized housing
segments commonly referred to as prefabricated
housing. As a component
builder, TAS has a great deal of flexibility
in construction. Practically any
set of plans can be followed when constructing
with component panels.

Interior walls utilize gypsum wall board on both sides, with in-sulation added for acoustical purposesonly.
