NEW PRODUCT FLASH: Gen 7 Modular Classroom
American Modular Systems (AMS) recently debuted it Gen 7 indoor learning environment line. The Gen7 classrooms are designed to offer a range of time-, money- and energy-saving features by providing an environmentally friendly, low maintenance environment to foster optimal learning potential.
With versatile designs to fit existing campus environments and architectural specifications, Gen7 helps schools fulfill modernization and expansion needs, while providing direct and permanent long-term cost savings. AMS’s manufacturing processes enable Gen7 self contained classrooms to be delivered 90% complete; they can be delivered and installed in as little as 90 days or less.
Among the highlights of these classrooms are high recycled and recyclable materials content, low- and zero-VOC interiors, attention to acoustical design, energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems, and lighting systems with integrated daylight harvesting features.
AMS collaborated with a number of companies in the design and manufacture of Gen7. These partners and their products have been integral to making Gen7. These partners include Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating Solutions; Solatube International Inc.; PPG Industries; Culver-Newlin; Chatfield-Clark; All Weather Architectural Aluminum; Armstrong World Industries; Lithonia Lighting; Lutron Electronics; Ultra Touch Insulation; Tandus (Collins/Aikman); Steelscape Inc.; Merit USA; AEP; P2000 Insulation; Price Industries; Tri-Best Visual Display Products; and Central Valley Hardware.
It should be noted that the Gen7 learning environment was developed and designed primarily for the California market and the stringent requirements of the California Department of the State Architect (DSA). As such, the design and engineering specifications for the four seismic zones and 16 different climate zones of that state exceed the typical code requirements of other regions. (This may place Gen7 at an economical price disadvantage as a result; however each project can be considered on an individual basis in regards to logistic and economic viability).
