Aluminium Subframe for Composite Decking

Aluminium Subframe Specification

For a fire-resistant subframe system that offers maximum strength and durability look no further than the SAiGE subframe system. This system has been developed with fire safety in mind following the recent change in legislations on the use of combustible materials in high rise buildings. The pedestals and cradles are made from PA6- GF30 with a EN13501-1 B fire rating.

Our fire-resistant cradles and pedestals are made with virgin materials that conform to EN13501-1 B fire testing making them suitable for commercial projects such as roof terraces, balconies and podiums. Made up of 30% glass filled nylon, they are also lightweight in construction.

The structure of the joists means they are not only durable but can also work on a much longer span compared to similar systems, reducing the quantity of pedestals and cradles needed and in turn reducing the cost and labour time. Supports can be placed every 800mm on a 50mm joist and still offer maximum strength.

As the ultimate decking support solution, both residential and commercial projects can benefit from the high quality, high strength system.

All aluminium joists have been powder coated (RAL 9005) to ensure the joists are not visible through the gaps in the decking. Our Fire rated cradles and pedestals can be easily identified as they are grey in colour whereas the standard non- fire resistant range is black.
