MAXIframe External Wall Framing

The Rondo MAXIframe External Wall Framing system is light-weight steel framing in external wall construction. The system has been expertly engineered to offer builders a more efficient, versatile and cost effective design option than traditional external wall framing construction methods.

The system incorporates standard Rondo 92mm Studs as the main framing, with the inclusion of two new major profiles, MAXIjamb and MAXItrack, and three complementary cleats to provide a simple, yet solid structure.

Key Features
  • MAXIjamb can support and carry greater load than regular wall studs, therefore removing the need for boxed or back to back stud configurations
  • MAXItrack provides a positive connection between stud and deflection head which has allowed the Nogging track normally located 100mm below the head track to be removed
  • Greater performance capacities than traditional external wall framing construction methods
  • Available in custom lengths
  • MAXIjamb is made from hi tensile steel, 1.2BMT G500
  • MAXIjamb can be used as both a vertical jamb member around openings, or horizontal head and sill member in window openings.
  • Majority of Stud and Track is hemmed for safety and increased strength
  • Manufactured with a minimum coating of Z275
