New Literature: Racking Solutions
May 15, 2014
Since we launched our racking solutions range to the timber frame industry last September, installers up and down the UK have fed us some useful hints and tips to further enhance the benefits of the system.
We've included them in the anniversary edition of the Racking Solutions brochure which now also includes:
- A selection of the most common foundation details and how to install with them.
- Guidance on the tools and equipment typically required.
- Improved performance information.
- Updated information realting to the resin anchor system used in conjuction with Strong-Portal and Strong-Wall.
Here's what people are saying:
"I fitted the Steel Strong-Wall as it gave extra racking capacity that the timber frame couldn't offer. It fitted nicely with the timber frame kit whereas the alternative would have been a steel portal frame which is challenging when timber frame is involved. I specified using the technical catalogue which gave clear information for easy product selection."
Sam Matthews, Engineer, WMA Consulting and Civil Engineers
"...the main benefit from a manufacturer's perspective was the ability to eliminate the requirement for a more straditional steel portal frame to provide the desired racking within the building. All fixing components were included with the Strong-Wall and it was installed quickly and efficiently as the ground floor panels were being erected."
Chris Eadie, Design Technician, T Fleming Homes
"...I found it very easy to fit as there were full fitting instructions and a fixing pack was included. Using Steel Strong-Wall has saved time and materials on site."
