MotionFrame announce the successful fire testing to European Standard EN 1341-1 of their initial portfolio of performance wall products.
The MotionFrame Walling System is an off site manufactured modular walling system that adheres to the principals of DfMA (Design for Manufacture and Assembly) and therefore falls into the classification of ‘A Modern Method of Construction’.
On conclusion of the recent fire tests, and in addition to our non-performance wall derivatives, the portfolio of walling types includes:
FW 75 (60 minutes) – Single 75 mm laminate panel
FW 175 (120 minutes) – Double 75 mm laminate panel (including 25 mm void)
The FW 75 performance wall is 30% thinner than its traditional dry-lining equivalent offering and subsequently delivers significant gains in habitable and saleable living space.
Benefits and applications of our non-performance and fire rated walling solutions include:
The capability to offer an accelerated internal fit-out through the installation of external wall linings prior to the completion of the facades. The wall’s characteristics of non-paper faced boards, thermal efficiency and fire protection removes trade inter-dependencies and accelerates the fit-out programme.
Significantly reduced wall depths increase either the individual habitable living spaces of the construction or enables a greater volume of apartments per build based on the same floor plate. Either of which will deliver a higher rate of return from the construction.
Simplification of wall selection is achieved through a limited portfolio of walling products offering significant commercial benefits and reductions in complex detailing, excessive design and supervisory manpower and the hereditary workmanship issues and costs that typically follow.
Due to the offsite manufacturing process, parametric design systems, BiM integration and detailed panel by panel installation plans, the product and its associated elevations offer full traceability through an auditable trail.
Simplified and swift installation coupled with deskilled labour requirements overcomes labour resourcing challenges and reduces managerial, supervisory and installation labour volumes and costs.
