A game changing telescopic steel framing machine
Howick’s all-new X-TENDA 3600 is a new system that promises to transform the interior framing space. It produces cold formed steel telescopic framing for retrofit or infill interior walls and ceilings. The framing components produced are pre-assembled, compressed for easy manoeuvre, then quickly expanded and adjusted on site for a precise fit every time.
Using BIM technology, the X-TENDA 3600 produces components ready to assemble with all punching and fixing holes placed with pinpoint accuracy. This mean they are self-locating; snapping together like Lego pieces to significantly improve efficiency. Strong, lightweight and retractable frames are easy to move around onsite, even in tight spaces. Once in place, panels can be extended in any direction to fit the most uneven spaces. There is no need for re-work, and zero wastage.
All up, X-TENDA 3600 framing has proven to save as much as 50% of the time taken to frame interior spaces with traditional framing methods.
Soffit Panels can be produced that adjust up or down across the frame to a set height. This makes accurate levelling up a breeze, as allowance can easily be made for non-level horizontal settings.
Two-Axis Expanding Panels adjust upwards and outwards to fill the available opening. Within the frame itself, door and windows remain perfectly square.
Multi-Axis Expanding Panels adjust upwards and outwards on both sides. This allows for different angles within the available opening.
