Strawtec affordable apartments.

Strawtec’s fast and cost effective multi-storey apartment solution is based on a lightweight metal structure in combination with Strawtec floor slabs, partitions and facade in-fills.

All Strawtec modules, windows, doors and the light-weight metal structures are made in Kigali and meet high quality standards.

Using Strawtec in the context of a more traditional reinforced concrete skeleton also leads to an overall cost, construction time and project risk reduction.

Strawtec Partitioning Solutions

Strawtec’s self-supporting wall systems deliver an exceptional combination of high performance properties, fast and flexible construction, materials used in Rwanda, Strawtec provides a significantly faster and more cost-effective solution.

Space Saving

With a width of just 58mm, Strawtec allows developers and investors to optimize the available floor space for their project. Put into context, the installation of Strawtec as an alternative to cement blocks will add up to 5% in usable floor space by reducing the thickness of the walls.


The paint-ready surface of Strawtec modules ensures the easy application of standard finishings such as primer (for waterproofing), paint, plaster and tiles, resulting in good quality, durable internal finishes.

For ultimate flexibility, Strawtec offers ready-laminated panels fitted with aluminium profiles for partitioning in offices and shopping centres, combining extremely fast construction times, a durable finish and a wall that can be easily demounted and re-position.

Customized Solutions

Strawtec also offers customized solutions for enhanced soundproofing and bulletproofing, typically used in hotels and high-end commercial buildings.
