» SFS Framing System

The SFS range is used for infill panels, continuous walling and high separating walls. The cold formed galvanised SFS sections will be supplied in stick form for assembly on site. They can also be supplied in either plain lengths or pre-punched form for services.

This system offers many advantages over traditional methods of construction such as speed of erection and completion on site, increased stability and durability as well as reduction on weight. The sections are robust and sufficiently light for site handling and they don’t suffer from shrinkage or settlement in comparison to timber and masonry. The benefits are both time and cost effective making the SFS framing a popular option to many. With a dedicated, fully trained and knowledgeable team of experienced staff we provide an excellent and unrivalled service from the point of initial contact right through to delivery of the steel on site.
