Rollforming Services 150mm Framing is run from AXXIS® Steel for Framing using Howick FRAMA™ technology. So you know your framing is strong, straight and built to last.
150mm Framing is perfect for residential high stud walls, mid floors, and roof panels. Commercial internal and external walls, mid floors, inter tenancy and fire-rated walls. It also allows for higher R Value to be achieved where energy efficiency or extreme temperatures are a factor.

As of May 2019, the NASH Standard Part 2 has been made an Acceptable Solution by MBIE and is available on the NASH website, along with NASH’s other publications. Now is a great time to start your journey in lightweight steel construction.
Our 150mm Framing is manufactured from AXXIS® Steel for Framing and is backed by New Zealand Steel’s 50-year durability statement, download available below. It is a hot dipped galvanised steel with a coating weight of 275g/m2, in line with other common lightweight steel structural building products.
This gives good protection in most exposed internal environments, and for external use in moderate marine environments. Where used in a lined interior dwelling, a thermal break should be installed between the framing and the cladding to avoid thermal bridging. Where sections are exposed to salt spray but not rain washing, maintenance is required to remove any build-up of salt deposits on the surface.
Run-off from, or contact with, materials which are incompatible with zinc should be avoided.
150mm Framing should be kept dry during storage as water present between close stacked sections will cause premature corrosion. Once the frames have been stood up onsite and the building is wrapped a quick blow down of the upper frames to remove loose swarf and excess moisture as well as vacuuming out of the bottom track is all you need before organising a pre-line inspection.
150mm Framing is pre-punched and cut-to-length in our machine using machine files generated by the design software specifically for your project. Each stud, track or brace is cut-to-length and marked to a plan. It arrives onsite either pre-assembled in our factory or flat pack cut-to-length ready for your builder to assemble.
All you need is an impact driver and driver bit. We provide an easy to follow plan and the fasteners required to screw the pieces together.
We recommend maximum wall dimensions of 3m x 6m for pre-assembled walls, for flat pack bundles the longest length is only limited by the available transport and handling facilities.
Standard track and stud lengths can be run for commercial interior type walls if required, but we do recommend taking advantage of our design software.
Cutting onsite is preferably done by tin snips, hacksaw, or cold cut saw. When using abrasive disc blades care must be taken to ensure the swarf produced does not affect other materials and the burred edge should be cleaned off at the completion of cutting, followed by a coat of zinc-rich cold galvanised spray.
Rollforming Services had the opportunity to manufacture and supply 150mm Framing for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter hangar extension.
