Looking for a dedicated floor joist cassette manufacturing option? The FRAMA™ 6800 will give you increased production capacity. You will also benefit from improved installation efficiency over standard lattice flooring systems. This machine features our unique swaged service hole to make ducting and plumbing easy. The Howick swage and tab design allows for smooth joints, so the floor lining is able to sit flush to the joists. The floor cassettes can be built as modular units or easily assembled piece by piece in existing structures.

It offers a gauge range of 2.0 to 2.5mm (14 to 13 gauge) and produces up to 600m/968ft of floor joists per hour.
