Here are a few statistics that point to the popularity of the Murox building system:
The Murox building system mainly consists of shop-fabricated, load-bearing exterior walls panels and structural steel components such as steel joists and steel deck.
The roof joists around the periphery of the building bear directly on the wall panels. Inside the building, joist girders support the roof joists. The system also includes steel columns and steel deck.
|The Murox panel system can help you reduce the erection time of your building by about 50%|
Canam’s prefabricated wall panels are the ideal solution for the construction of your future industrial, commercial or institutional building. Speed of construction, durability, strength, integrated isolation, time and money savings…
These are just a few of the many benefits of our system, whether you are a general contractor, developer or owner.

1. Shop Fabrication
While the foundations are built at the job site, the Murox building system components are being fabricated under ideal conditions back at the plant.
Special care is given to the installation of the insulating materials.
2. Shop Finishing
Factory installation of windows, man-doors and cladding.
The windows, man-doors and cladding are slaso factory installed for perfect finishing work.
3. Jobsite Delivery
Murox building system components are delivered to the site on time.
Respecting your schedule is our priority.
Erection of the structure and panels including installation of the steel deck are completed.
The other specialised workers can begin.
Steel cladding is a cost-effective finish for both the exterior and interior walls of your Murox high performance building. Canam cladding comes in four different profiles, M-156R, M-651R, M-9022 and M-9722, in order to meet your specific needs and tastes.
The cladding is coated with a proven formula of advanced polyester resins with added silicone for enhanced durability and corrosion resistance.
M-156R, M-651R, M-9022 and M-9722 claddings are cold formed from Perspectra Series™ steel coil that is made to rigid specifications and quality tested to comply with ASTM A653/A653M or A792/A792M requirements.

Canam cladding is available in a full range of standard and custom colors as well as with the following specialized color coatings: Stelcolour 10000 Series™, Stelcolour Metallic and Elite Series™, and Stelcolour Barrier Series™.
Additional colors are available but may take longer to deliver, incur supplemental costs, or require minimum quantities.
The ventilated thermal panel (VTP) developed by Canam is a solar collector that preheats incoming fresh air before it enters an air makeup unit. This can reduce energy costs by up to 25%*.
* Hypothetical performance based on simulations run on the SWift 99 software tool developed by NRCan.
Integrated into the Murox load-bearing wall, the ventilated thermal panel is also factory-assembled and very quick to install at the construction site.
