STEEL FRAMES - THE PROCESS
Our steel framing system utilises cold roll formed 78mm x 38mm and 90mm x 40mm galvanised, lipped 'C' section members in either 0.55mm, 0.75mm or 0.95mm gauge high tensile G550 steel, with a tensile and yield strength of 550Mpa.
Framing is designed using fully integrated engineering detail software. Once the design is completed the information is electronically transferred to roll forming machines for manufacture and assembly to exact dimensions. The fully computerised and integrated design and manufacturing system means that every wall is straight, square and true. Thus, resulting in faster, easier construction with simpler installation of services and a better fit for doors and windows.
Framing comes complete with bracing, battens, noggs, window and door lintels, structural members, openings and pre-punched holes for services. Steel framing can be installed by a 2 or 3 man site team, typically, two men can erect a single story house in 3 days.
