Primary Frame Systems
The most common primary-framing-systems are shown below. All are shown symmetrical about the ridge line. Framing systems unsymmetrical about the ridge line and multi span framing system with unequal width modules are possible but may require more engineering time and probably longer deliveries. Practically any frame geometry is possible. Consult us for your specific.
- PRIMARY FRAMING CONSISTS OF ALL STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS TRANSFERRING LOAD TO THE FOUNDATIONS
PRIMARY FRAMING MAINLY CONSISTS OF :
- Intermediate frames
- Endwall frames
- Wind Bracings
- Crane brackets
- Mezzanine beams
INTERMEDIATE FRAMES CHARACTERISTICS
Intermediate frames consist of built up welded primary framing members. These are either C.R.S.sections, hot-rolled profiles, or built-up welded profiles. Frames are complemented by flange bracing, connection bolts and anchor bolts. Generally, the base of the intermediate frame is pinned. Certain circumstances demand a fixed base approach.
All efforts for protection during transportation and erection are made. All profiles receive a shop primer coat of either red or gray color.Optionally, a finished coat also can be provided, on request
Wind bracing provides longitudinal stability for the building. It consists of cross bracing located in the roof and side walls in one or more days depending on loadings and the length of the building. When required, cross bracings can be replaced by wind portal frames or by fixed base wind columns located adjacent and connected to the main frame columns.
- Resistant to extreme weather
- Easy to install
- Low heat conductivity
