Versatile Modular Steel Structures

Sikla Framo is a secondary modular steel system that connects to primary structures as well as standard 1-5/8″ metal framing – including Unistrut.

Sikla Modular Steelwork Solutions improve the efficiency and flexibility of modular construction. The innate versatility and inherent compatibility of the Sikla modular steel systems make it adaptable to just about any construction project or prefabricated steel structure.

SiFramo structural members are designed as a closed box section which is more resistant to torsion than open sections, such as: W-beam, I-beam, C-section, L-section. The unique slot and hole pattern is vertically offset and designed to accommodate connections on all four sides without any collisions.

2 Ways to Connect Sikla Modular Steel Systems to Metal Framing

The Sikla Framo (siFramo) system offers two convenient ways to connect 1-5/8″ strut channel to its structural beams. Connection via:

  • Channel Adapter, or
  • Direct Fastening

Once you’ve figured out the best way to attach your Unistrut channel to your modular steel structure, you have access to attach any Unistrut parts you want. Congratulations! You’ve just exponentially increased the versatility of your modular steel building systems. The sky is the limit!

4 Ways to Connect to Primary Structures

There are even more connection options available to you for connection your siFramo modular steel structure to your primary structure. Connection via:

  • Beam Clamps
  • Bolts
  • Anchors
  • Welding

Why We Use Sikla Framo (siFramo)

Sikla Framo (siFramo) is a fully modular and adjustable system of beams and fittings that offers structural support without any of the hassle of fabricated steel. It’s also the backbone of our Modular Mechanical Support Systems!

Building with siFramo components drastically improves installation times since there is no need for welding, hole-drilling, cutting, grinding, or painting, and all components attach with a single piece of hardware.

The Advantages Are Clear

  • Fully Modular System with the Strength of Fabricated Steel
  • Installs Much Faster than Fabricated Steel
  • All Connections Made with One-Size-Fits-All Thread Forming Screw
  • Hot Dip Galvanized for Superior Corrosion Resistance
  • Integrates with Other Metal Framing Systems, including Unistrut
