STRONG BUT LIGHTWEIGHT & EASY TO INSTALL

The siFramo system supplied by Acura is a simple bolt together modular steel framing system, designed to make up support frames on site or off site without a need for hot works, and all assembled with just an impact driver.

Benefits Snapshot

  • Adjustable components to allow for revisions and building tolerances
  • All parts are reusable without wastage
  • Compatible with generic strut systems
  • Strong but lightweight (from only 4.3kg per M), cutting down the total tonnage of steel required for the project
  • Stock is readily available, with a distribution network that offers quick lead times
  • Significant productivity gains versus conventional steel fabrication
  • One size and type of vibration-proof thread forming screw for all connections
  • Compliance to EN 1090-1 (CE)
  • HDG coating to EN-ISO1461 and AS/NZS2312
  • No hot works – no clashes – no shut down

TIME SAVING CONNECTION

The siFramo system is assembled via thread-forming tapping screws. The chipless, custom-fitted cold-work hardening of the female thread means the screw develops form closure and no longer become loose.

They can also be removed and reused again - excellent for adjustment

 

TORSIONAL STIFFNESS COMPARISONS

Comparison with torsional moment of inertia lz (cm4)

The torsional stiffness of siFramo 80 is approx. 2 to 3 orders of magnitude greater than with open profiles.

 

Applications:

• Walkway platforms

• Air handling units

• Large pipework

• Ductwork

• Heavy cable trays

• And much more!
