siFramo Secondary Steel Solutions From VIP

The cutting-edge modular steelwork solution known as Framo became siFramo in April 2017. VIP Ltd are proud to now offer this superb product as part of our growing Expansion range.

 

siFramo (previously known as Framo) is a patented, certified Modular Framing System suitable for supporting structures according to EN 1090 and flexible frame constructions. It has been successfully installed in various projects worldwide and used for different applications for many years. More than 1 million meters of Framo beam sections have been installed.

siFramo is an innovative, industry-leading product which removes many of the problems associated with secondary steel solutions, such as:

  • High weight yet poor performance
  • Unnecessary, excessive waste resulting from modification
  • Inefficient, slow and outdated logistics
  • The requirement of a hot works facility

Modular Steelwork With Robust Structural Performance

siFramo is a non-welded steelwork support system for the modular construction of frames and structures. It utilises light weight components which are manufactured to the highest standards in high quality steel, weighing from only 5.1kg per metre. These are connected with easily adjustable thread forming shake-proof fasteners. siFramo 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.


Benefits Of Using siFramo
  • All products and components are completely re-usable, substantially reducing waste and cost
  • On-site modification is easy and quick, meaning no loss of time, cut-outs or re-works
  • Compared to traditional steelwork, siFramo offers tangible time savings (illustrated in more detail below)
  • Tonnage of steel required for projects is vastly reduced thanks to siFramo's strong but light weight construction, which also offers significant space saving
  • All component connections done with one thread forming screw
  • Highly compatible with other installation systems
  • No need for hot works due to the innovative non-welded design
  • High corrosion resistance across the whole siFramo range, with additional C5 coatings available on request
siFramo is assembled via thread forming screws. The non-cutting cold formed threads of the screw form their own threads to pilot holes of the perforated Framo profiles. The low thread forming torque and resulting high clamping force, offers a superior process-reliable shake-proof fastening. The thread forming screws are removable and can be used again.
A Single Fastener For All Profile Sizes And Connectors

siFramo is assembled via thread forming screws. The non-cutting cold formed threads of the screw form their own threads to pilot holes of the perforated Framo profiles. The low thread forming torque and resulting high clamping force, offers a superior process-reliable shake-proof fastening. The thread forming screws are removable and can be used again.

The Perfect System For Modular Steelwork Construction

 
  • No nuts or back-plates at member joints.
  • No obstruction to adjacent member connections.
 
  • Full utilisation of profile surface.
  • Attachments possible into corners.

In addition to the high torsional resistance achieved using a totally closed profile, structural elements and pipe supports can be attached on all 4 sides with virtually no placement restrictions. Specifically designed fixing holes combined with special FLS self-tapping screws.
