Accuracy – Factory precision means that great confidence can be placed on things being as they are designed or intended to present

Let us see how we can provide you with the benefits

We design and engineer all elements of the framing taking account of location, wind pressures, roof construction, façade finishes – even M&E locations can be and should be allowed for.  As with all systems, service holes can be pre-punched to give greater ease for the installation of first-fix plumbing and electrics.

Frameclad’s continuous investment in MMC technology and equipment means that there are almost no opportunities for us to be unable to supply the system that you need.

The section range that we have is market leading, the equipment we have is the best and the people that we have possess the most experience and understanding of offsite construction that is available for any supplier in Europe and beyond.

As the MMC market continues to grow we have supplied hundreds of projects with framed solutions – take a browse through our case study section to see just a few.

Frameclad can provide systems to suit individual houses, offices or light industrial buildings. We can also supply portal frames to construct warehouses and barns or anywhere where a larger span is required that cannot be practically supported with a cold formed frame. Due to the lightweight structure, this system can lend itself to building a new storey or storeys on your existing building (subject to structural engineering approval)
