Sikla siFramo launches in South Africa

A first of its kind in Africa, siFramo is a non welded support system that saves time, money and labour. 15 years ago, Sikla pioneered siFramo: a versatile, multifunctional, and high load-bearing modular steel support system. SiFramo is the only system with 1-Screw technology in the world and is now available in South Africa.

What is siFramo:

  • siFramo is a non-welded steelwork support system for the modular construction of frames and structures. A first real alternative to welding.
  • The system enables multidirectional connection possibilities without the need for through-bolts and back-plates.
  • The connection method is simple, fast, reliable and safe. The entire system is certified according to international standards.
  • The box section profiles have high torsional resistance and a fine adjustment capability for connecting members.

How is it assembled?

  • siFramo is assembled via thread forming screws.
  • The non-cutting cold-formed threads of the screw form their own threads into the pilot holes of the perforated siFramo profiles.
  • The low thread forming torque and resulting high clamping force offers a superior process-reliable shake-proof fastening.
  • The thread forming screws are removable and can be used again.

Advantages:

 Reduced Overall Project Time
 Detailed Design later possible and still adaptable
 Cost and time advantages regarding transport (earlier or cheaper)
 More economical (material, installation time, overall)
 No skilled staff needed, possible to be built by one person
 Material on stock
 Fabrication can take place anywhere
 Weight saving about 50%, hence less/no crane and less man power (costs)
 Instant corrosion protection (HDG)
 Static proof by RStab calculations
 Adjustments and modifications easily possible
 Reduced impact on the environment
