Ayrshire manufactures a range of different cold rolled steel framing systems to suit a variety of requirements.
Most of our product range is manufactured from S450 high grade zinc coated galvanised steel and are all available to order in various sizes and lengths.
AyrFrame™ is a lightweight, high strength steel modular building frame system. Over the past 25 years we have fabricated a wide variety of frames from one-off bespoke structures such as roof-top extensions and marketing suites to multi-storey hotels, student accommodation and housing blocks.
We fabricate the steel frame assemblies that go on to be fitted out by specialist firms. The chief benefit of AyrFrame’s™ is its weight, around 1.5 tonnes for a 25m room-sized module, multiple design possibilities (curves, skewed faces, sloped ceilings) and tight tolerances that are only possible in a quality certified factory.
Structural frame strength comes from inter-locking precision steel joists and stud sections. These are then fixed into position using short fillet welds. Racking is prevented by furring runners that also serve to allow space for electrical wiring
to run behind plasterboard's. Additional strength is added at the fit-out stage by the addition of fire-check and OSB boarding that act as diaphragm braces.
Compared with traditional construction methods AyrFrame™ removes many of the on site issues associated with construction and can significantly reduce project completion time, typically by about 35%, giving a faster return on investment.
Modular construction is at its most efficient when a project is specifically designed from the outset to be modular. Designing for modular requires an understanding of module manufacturing, the AyrFrame™ Design Guide gives some insight into the design details but please contact our design team with any queries.
