Modernism Week Fire Demo with Founder & COO Mike Taylor

During Modernism Week, First Wave Development showcased the fire-resistant TechBoard created by ZS2 Technologies and used in MSIPS for First Wave's modular homes. This innovative material offers superior fire resistance, climate resilience, and dimensional stability, making it an ideal choice for modular home construction.

After 30 minutes, the TechBoard has minor damage from the fire. Even more impressive is Mike placed his hand on the TechBoard while it was "on fire" with no damage or burns to his hands.

Watch the full demonstration here.

TechBoard is a proprietary magnesium-cement board formulated at ZS2 Technologies. It is both climate resilient and environmentally responsible without compromising on performance. It maintains its structural integrity even in extreme weather conditions, ensuring the longevity and safety of the home.


ZS2 Technologies has developed a healthier, safer, stronger cement sheathing board with a significantly reduced carbon footprint. For instance, TechBoard lowers CO2 emissions compared to traditional cement and gypsum boards, contributing considerably to sustainable building practices.
