Sigmat's load bearing light gauge steel framing system has already been selected on 15 projects in Scotland in the last two years.
Construction professionals are working with Sigmat, the UK's number one supplier of light gauge steel framing solutions, because we are the UK's only source to site solution providing the whole process in-house - Design, Manufacture, Assembly and Installation.
We understand that modern, DfMA offsite construction needs to be the first choice for low to mid rise to deliver lower costs, programme certainty, the intelligent use of BIM and an earlier return on investment. Offsite realises time and money savings by enabling earlier deployment of trades and eliminating external finishes from the critical path.
Our unique cold rolled formed components are proven to have an increase of 17.8% in structural capability when compared to an equivalent 'C' section. Our patented profiles also solve on-site installation challenges, testament to our passion for continuous improvement.
We are also able to incorporate hot rolled structural sections and detail components such as stairs which can be integrated seamlessly into the design and build.
With regard to the construction of the frame, the team has been very impressed with the very high degree of organisation, communication and professionalism of all involved, from the concept to the delivery. Everyone has been approachable and flexible and worked to make this a successful build. We would all like to congratulate the site team for all the efforts that were brought to bear to maintain a tight programme on a very confined site
