MOTIONFRAME WALLING SYSTEM
Familiar Materials, New thought processes, New Product
The MotionFrame Walling System is a unique proposition that is attracting significant interest across worldwide construction markets.
Developed to improve the internal walling fit-out of any construction type, the system combines the quality of an offsite manufactured and precision engineered system with a simplistic method of installation that is faster, safer and is delivered at significantly reduced risk levels compared to traditional internal walling build methods.
Our ethos in the development of the MotionFrame Walling System was to create and introduce a new construction methodology and reeducate teams on how to perform existing tasks better with the current workforce.
System installation is a process that requires minimal supervision with no need for up skilling or extensive training to deliver a higher performing solution.
Head track and base track are set out and installed. The specified feet are then inserted into each panel which is then located into the tracks with a MotionFrame Stud placed between each panel using our simple twist lock system.
The System panels are dry fitted and placed into a state of bi-directional compression that results in the formation of a robust elevation. This method, combined with the inline damping properties of the legs, caters for a degree of horizontal and vertical deflection, whilst retaining a rigid and high performing installation.
An elevation build sequence of panel then stud is repeated along the length of the elevation. Once the final elevation panel is in position, the vertical end compression feet are mounted to the exposed edge and horizontal compression is applied, creating a monolithic wall.
All compression voids are then backfilled and enclosed with panel jointing filled with a 1mm bead, left flush or skimmed as required.
Subject to market and build type, the adoption of the MotionFrame Walling System will deliver varying levels of betterment against programme.
For example, on a greenfield residential construction. A double storey house can be installed by two men in just five working days.
The efficiencies in this sector are further realised on the basis that a single MotionFrame Walling System design will service all properties of the same type and using the same installation sequence. One design delivered at volume on a just in time basis, with the same installation sequence and trained teams is the optimum solution for this sector.
