Metal Stud Partitioning

The modern, engineered alternative to traditional timber and blockwork construction, wall, ceiling and floor systems are quicker and easier to install, whilst meeting the highest performance requirements.Up to 50% lighter than equivalent timber systems, and up to 70% lighter than blockwork, Gypframe metal products are easier to transport and offer a high strength to weight ratio for guaranteed performance and long life.
Metal frame components are easy to cut on site, non-flammable and won’t rot, twist or warp. They can be stored outside and installed in any weather, making it easier to schedule work.

Fire Protection

fire stopping solutions ensure that the fire resistance of protected walls, floors and roofs is never compromised by services or voids.

To stop fire spreading, UK Building Regulations insist on effective compartmentation, where fire, smoke and gasses must be kept for as long as possible where they have originated. Our range of fire-stopping products ensure that cables, pipes, trunking, or ductwork, or the voids that they pass through, don’t provide the weak link through which fire can spread.
