Proframe - Aluminum Subframe
Description

The Proframe aluminum joist system is the ultimate decking support solution. Designed to support Futurewood composite decking over membrane decks and concrete patios, It's simple and sturdy design ensures rapid installation regardless of the complexity of the project.

Proframe's powder coated aluminium joists are extremely stable and won't warp, cup or bow. Because the aluminium is so stable, end plates and nogs are often not required.

Proframe’s joist/bearer is a low 45mm profile which sits well clear of the membrane not restricting the flow of water off the membrane. Water and debris can easily drain into the gutter and the installation of inspection hatches allows for easy care and maintenance.

Key Features
  • Fast installation — in some cases installation time savings of up to 75% versus traditional timber methods
  • Aluminium joists provide twice the span using half the height of traditional timber, requiring less jacks to support the frame
  • Aluminium weighs a fraction of traditional timber and is far less physically taxing when loading or installing the framing onto the site. Lightweight aluminium can easily be passed up a multi-story scaffold to access difficult areas
  • All frames are designed to a 4kpa commercial deck loading
  • Proframe's system is fully compatible with Futurewood composite decking
  • Both Futurewood and Proframe carry a 15 year, 100% warranty
