Metsec

SFS Components

Metsec relies on high quality, purpose designed components. The design of sections draws on Metsec Framing’s extensive cold rolling knowledge to maximise the strength to weight ratios.

The section profiles are listed as follows:

Stud/C Section

These are simple but structurally efficient lipped C-sections used as studs in walls and joists in floors or roofs.

 

Slotted Head Track

These are un-lipped sections that are slightly wider than the lipped C-sections to allow for simple connections incorporating deflection at the head of a wall.

Base Track/Channels

These are un-lipped sections that are slightly wider than the lipped C-sections to allow for simple connections at the base of wall and at the ends of floors or roofs.

Bracing Straps

These are used as bracing members or screed stops when screw fixed to the face of walls.

Angles

These are used for various arrangements to provide additional or temporary support.

Universal Cleats

A new range of cleats used to provide support to continuous wall studs, with a unique pattern of pre-punched slots and holes which offer both deflection or solid fix.

Cill Plate

These are used to provide support for windows where required.

Window Connector

These are used to connect lintel/cill members to jamb studs around openings.

Window Angle

These are used to strengthen the connections around openings where there is higher loads.

Cantilever Post

These are utilised on parapets, freestanding walls and downstands, along with providing support above and below wall openings where required.

Other Accessories

Zed bars – These are used to provide head and base support to walls where required.

High load cleats – These are used to provide additional support for jamb studs where required.

Slotted angle – These are used to provide support to continuous wall studs where the offset from the primary frame is too great for a universal cleat.
