 How does your project look like?

  • 1. Are connection components all-embracing and not just angle-brackets? (Answer here)
  • 2. Are small parts safe against confusion, vibration and wrong application? (Answer here)
  • 3. Can a safe connection be spotted by the naked eye or does it require torque-wrenching to be sure? (Answer here)
  • 4. Do the connection elements keep the frame corners clear, i.e. 100% of section area can be used as a support? (Answer here)
  • 5. Can connections be made steplessly and fixing positions are not dependent on availability of holes and slots? (Answer here)
  • 6. Is independently tested load data available for all components and parts of the system? (Answer here)
  • 7. Is test data available for typical frame configurations and based on all 3 possible load directions? (Answer here)
  • 8. Can the system be calculated with a 3D structural frame analysis program? (Answer here)
  • 9. Is the system BIM and plant design software compatible? (Answer here)
  • 10. Is a global manufacturer accountable for the product? (Answer here)

How many Yes/No answers did you get?

If you can answer all 10 questions with yes, you probably use siFramo.

If you have a few NO's - be worried.

If you have NO's only, check the small print of your insurance policies.
