We are proud to stock the innovative modular support system Framo, which is a patented, fully certified and non-welded steelwork support system for the modular construction of frames and structures according to EN1090. We are the only distributor in Southern Africa of FRAMO modular multifunctional steel framing systems
Framo allows multidirectional connection possibilities without the need for through-bolts and back-plates.
The box section profiles have a high torsional resistance and a fine adjustment capability for connecting members and is suitable for a wide variety of structural support applications in arduous situations.
Framo is inter-connectable with primary steelwork for securing supports to the building structure and also easily connects with strut channels for an integrated support solution.
Typical applications include:
The Framo system’s unique design allows you to build an adjustable structural framing system, without the need for cutting or welding steel framing members. The modular nature of Framo components makes it a highly versatile and incredibly efficient system to use.
Due to it’s the corrugated steel construction, the Framo channel lengths are able to bear larger loads than many of the lighter duty systems. One such system is Unistrut Metal Framing, which the Framo metal framing system is compatible with. This adds even more versatility to an already robust system of metal framing channel and components. Framo is also HCP coated for sustainable anti-corrosion when used in a variety of settings.
Channel sections incorporate a unique system of slotted and round holes, allowing for connection at nearly any point, on all four sides, as well as adding an element of adjustability that other systems lack
The Framo system uses a very effective, easy to install, thread-forming screw (no nut required) at all of its connection points, eliminating the need for any special tools, cutting or welding equipment. These self-locking, anti-vibration screws have a serrated head which helps prevent slippage, adding safety and security to the entire system. Thread-forming screws displace the material around the pilot hole so that it flows around the screw’s threads. These screws are generally used when large stresses are needed to increase resistance to loosening. Because no material is removed, the mating part creates a fit with zero clearance. The FLS (thread-forming) screws do not require lock-washers, or other types of locking devices, to prevent loosening. The self-forming threads of the FLS screw create a vibration-resistant fastening that holds great loads and does not loosen.
