Lightweight wheat straw and paper construction system

Durra Building Systems manufactures engineered acoustic wall, roof, and ceiling systems for venues such as theaters, airports, convention centers, and other spaces that have high acoustic demands.

The Durra Acoustic Panel is made from wheat straw and recycled paper, and it eliminates the need for multiple layers of drywall and up to half the studs used with conventional systems based on its structural rigidity.

The Durra Roofing System combines the roof with the finished ceiling, allowing both economic and construction-time savings. The Durra roof is constructed on the ground in sections of one thousand square feet and flown into place. In this way, each section can be installed at a rate of every two hours.
