CNC manufactured, steel panels built with precisely cut and assembled studs. A rapidly high performing solution for producing framing and trusses in heavy residential and light commercial buildings. The inherited steel characteristics make the panels perfect for tackling complex architectural challenges. Steel frame panels can accommodate to any UL assembly that can be met using metal stud framing, allowing for complete design flexibility and speed.
Metalleve Structure can typically reduce engineering costs by up to 80% per ton and save up to 30% on design, engineering, and resource costs. The compliance process is sped up due to Metalleve Structure taking into consideration local design standards. Resource consent issues don’t hold up the process – any changes can be integrated without having to start from scratch, saving engineering time and reducing the costs of using qualified engineering resource. By following pre-determined shop drawings and guiding markings on frames and other materials, erection on-site is sped up considerably.
Material Waste Reduced
CFS construction is extremely effective in reducing waste, which has both financial and environmental implications. Waste can make up 20% of material on a traditional construction project – the equivalent of wasting one building out of every five constructed. With the METALLEVE system, waste is reduced to less than 3% of the materials used, reducing costs and the environmental impact. Construction uses only what is needed – every part is used, and every frame is designed in the most efficient way possible. Because the unused materials are steel, wastage can be sold to specialists to be melted down and used elsewhere.
Optimize Team's Time
Taking a design-led approach to construction revolutionizes your approach to human resources, changing the roles and tasks that specific people undertake dramatically. Designers can be easily trained and are fully supported by METALLEVE to use the design process and software. Highly specialized engineers aren’t needed for significant portions of the process, cutting down on costly consultant resource. As the decision-making is moved to the design stage, the design process is less reliant on having many highly skilled builders on-site. Local, unskilled labor can be easily trained to use the METALLEVE System and to erect framing on-site, creating local job opportunities and reducing human resource costs.
Compliance Made Easy
With CFS construction, compliance is no longer such an immense pain point – CFS systems like METALLEVE make the compliance process easy. All commonly followed building codes are included instead of prebuilt into METALLEVE System, with the ability to add other codes as necessary. Ensuring your project is designed to standard simply means choosing the correct code from a dropdown menu and making sure you look out for any flagged issues. Engineers only need to be brought in after the team is confident that the project is up to standard. Engineering plans are unlikely to be rejected, but changes can be made easily and quickly if needed, avoiding costly project delays.
Metalleve CNC Steel Framing
A rapidly high performing solution for producing framing and trusses in heavy residential and light commercial buildings. The F450iT has been designed to handle the heavy gauge steel required to construct 1 to 7 storey structures and outputs 3-5/8” and 6” profiles. Suitable for heavy high walls, heavy trusses, heavy flooring and short span flooring; The framing product produced by the F450iT is a boxable section, making assembly for heavy building requirements easier.
