+ What is LifeArk made of?
LifeArk modules are made of HDPE (high density polyethylene) with an integrated HDPE foam core.
+ LifeArk floats?
Yes, the foam core is extremely buoyant, allowing our modules to float on water.
+ What is the dimension of one module?
8ft x 8ft x 9ft
We are currently undergoing stringent HUD & HCD certification processes to assess LifeArk across these six objectives:
• Fire Resistance
+ Is HDPE environmentally friendly?
HDPE plastic is the most environmentally stable of all plastics – giving off no harmful fumes into the environment. Manufacturing HDPE plastics requires only a fraction of the energy required to produce steel from iron ore.
LifeArk can even be produced using 100% recycled HDPE in dark colors like black or grey. After the life cycle of the modules, LifeArk can be 100% recycled. Use of HDPE materials contributes towards satisfying LEED credits.
+ Can you make LifeArk in different colors and textures?
Yes. Due to the flexiblility in customizing products made from HDPE, LifeArk can be any desired color or texture.
+ How much maintenance does it require?
LifeArk units are essentially maintenance free. HDPE is inherently germ-resistant with exceptional resistance to warping, splinting, fading, moisture and other environmental hazards common to wood or wood fiber composite products.
This means even in moist environments, where fungus would be a huge issue for traditional homes, LifeArk would remain clean.
The modular design of the LifeArk units allows specific components to be easily replaced as needed. Any smaller damages made to the surface of the modules can be repaired using standard compounds from any hardware stores.
The HDPE walls can be easily cleaned using standard cleaning agents and water.
+ What is the lifespan?
LifeArk units have a life cycle of 20-30 years with little maintenance.
+ Are the units ADA compliant?
Yes, all LifeArk configurations are designed to comply to ADA standards.
+ Can you relocate LifeArk units?
Yes, the modular design of LifeArk allows the units to be quickly assembled and disassembled and relocated as needed. The off-grid capability of LifeArk allows units to be deployed essentially anywhere.
+ Are LifeArk units available for purchase right now?
No, we are currently in the R&D phase leading up to prototyping.
