History of Origin
In the 2017 Housing White Paper, the scope of higher-density housing in urban locations was addressed, particularly “where buildings. Can be extended upwards by using the ‘airspace’ above them”.

Britsky Facts and Benefits

Swaging of the vertical studs allows for a flush finish wall profile which facilitates fixing of boarding or linings.

The bottom corners of the studs are trimmed prior to folding the section to allow the stud to sit directly onto the face of the bottom track thus giving direct transfer of vertical load rather than through the fixings

Window and door openings are easily accommodated

Bracing formed from the stud section can be incorporated within the wall structure, which is strong both in tension and compression therefore eliminating the need for external cross bracing.

Britframe Systems have the ability and capacity to supply systems in either stick form or fully assembled panels

The steel gauges are core steel thickness plus the standard (Z275) zinc coating thickness of 0.04mm.

Sections are generally manufactured from the grade S450 steel with a minimum yield strength of 450N/mm² (2mm from lesser yield)

Britframe Systems Framing offers increased stability and durability
