Typical Applications

Structural's framing systems can be supplied to site cut to length and in phases to suit the construction programme.
We would recommend that only quality installation sub contractors are employed, if necessary we are happy to recommend sub contractors who are familiar with the system.

Once the system is installed lining boards can be fixed on the inside to provide a dry internal environment. Whilst dry trades proceed, external wet trades such as brick or blockwork can progress independently.

A wide variety of cladding systems can be fixed to, or restrained by, the vertical studs. These range from brick or blockwork, as shown below, to metal cladding, rainscreen cladding, tiling and render systems.

Framing cladding systems have been tried and tested over recent years and performance information is now generally available for thermal, acoustic and fire protection qualities. Refer to the cladding manufacturer for further information.
