Metsec launches new range of steel framing systems
voestalpine Metsec has launched a new range of steel framing systems (SFS) that it claims reduces both environmental impact and cost to customers.
The company said the range has undergone stringent testing and assessments using multiple board and insulation options coupled with the new range of sections.
This data offers contractors the potential to reduce project costs for framing by ensuring there is no over specification on the project.
Ryan Simmonds, Sales Director of Framing at Metsec, said: “We are taking a new approach to our range of SFS framing systems. Today’s buildings need to perform as efficiently as possible, structurally, acoustically and thermally and be as safe as possible in terms of fire performance.
“Our new products can offer improved design efficiency. Over specification is something to be avoided in any case, but in today’s cost-driven market the need to ensure that designs optimise the amount of material used is increasingly important.
“We have also placed a greater emphasis on sustainability – this isn’t just about saving the planet but looking at how sustainability translates into real-world savings on-site such as transport and wastage.”
The new range is BIM Level 2 compliant with Kitemarks for both BIM projects and BIM objects.
