Why Light Gauge Steel - Accuracy

Accurate to Within 0.5mm

Light gauge steel is dimensionally accurate to within 0.5mm due to the roll-forming precision of the Howick FRAMATM technology

Using light gauge steel and FRAMA roll-forming technology in offsite construction makes the process dimensionally accurate to within 0.5 millimetres. This means less rework, downtime and penalties, and better speed, efficiency, and faster completion. Increased accuracy also results in less cost.

The FRAMA machines place all punching and fixing holes through accurate computer control. Steel frames, trusses and floor cassettes are manufactured with extreme precision, and are also self-locating and jigging. All profiles fit together within a tolerance of 0.5 millimetres.
