Facade and External Framing

Steel Frame Building Facade & External Framing

Replace secondary structural steel structures with lightweight, easy to install framing systems. Framing systems are designed, certified and drafted to suit the project design, budget and timeline by reducing scaffolding and on site labour.

Frames are detailed using 3D CAD technology and manufactured using cold formed galvanised steel or aluminium materials.


Lightweight yet strong facade framing solutions for easier and accurate installation

With frames fabricated to site specifications, installation is easy using SBS framing layouts and engineered cleat or bracket systems. Cladding can be directly fixed to the framing without the use of top hats or battens.

Frames can be designed to be lifted in as pre-clad modules to reduce the on site construction time.
