Over 20 years in the Supply Only market
For over two decades we have been serving part of the Supply Only market and have seen demand for different products rise and fall with the times. In recent years, the number of light gauge framing contracts has multiplied as it has become popular for higher rise buildings such as hotels and can be commonly found in residential and student accommodation.
Light gauge steel frames & crushed ends
Our long span TR80+ floor deck profile is an evolution from the original TR80+ has been particularly popular with contractors. The 80mm deep trapezoidal shape offers long and unpropped spans which reduces the number of structure supports required – for many of our clients, this is a go-to for low to medium storey buildings.
Light gauge steel is perfectly suited to the Supply Only market due to its modular nature. With the prospects of being able to ‘build-as-you-go’, the walls and supporting cold rolled steel frame is built all at the same time as the metal floor deck is installed. This cuts down the need for a steel frame erector and a metal decking installer as it only needs one team to complete – saving time, money and reducing the number of people on-site. As the bays are smaller and lighter than hot rolled steel beams, there’s minimal heavy lifting or cranes needed.
The crushed ends also provide further savings as there’s no need for end caps to be fitted and after concrete pour there’s a reduction in grout loss and less need for acoustic or fire profile fillers too.
Recent light gauge projects
A recent contract that we supplied decking to, Travelodge hotel in Wimbledon, provides extra accommodation for the area. This hotel benefitted from 5,000m2 of our long spanning floor deck profile TR80+ profile with Crushed End’s option with the structure making incredible headway hitting programme on time.
