Sikla Framo 80 is an innovative metal framing solution with the ability to support loads well beyond the capacity of Unistrut. While there are hundreds of fittings, beam clamps, and beam sections available to make virtually any configuration, Sikla Framo 80 uses only four main basic components. To view the full line of products, check out the Sikla Product catalog: Sikla Catalog
Sikla Framo 80 Beams
The Standard Sikla Framo 80 Beam section is a 3.125″ x 3.125″ perforated, box section. In addition to the high torsional resistance achieved using a totally closed profile, structural elements and pipe supports can be attached on all 4 sides with virtually no placement restrictions. Specifically designed mounting holes combined with special FLS Self Forming Screws ensure precise component placement and secure form-locked mountings.
For higher weight loads, Sikla has designed two larger beam sections for those applications. Contact Unistrut Midwest to determine how Sikla can be used on your project today.
Sikla FLS80 Bolt
The Sikla Framo 80 system is made possible by its innovative bolt system. The Framo 80 system is assembled via thread forming screws. The non-cutting cold formed threads of the screw create their own threads to pilot holes in the perforated Framo 80 beam sections. The low thread forming torque and resulting high clamping force, offers a superior process-reliable tolerance free connection.
Key Facts about the FLS Screw:
- The FLS80 screw does not require a nut to counter lock
- Self-Forming Bolt
- Tolerance Free, Cold-Formed Connection
- Cold-Pressed Connection, but reusable time and time again.
- Vibration Resistant connection makes Sikla Frames safe to transport after fabrication
Sikla Socket Fittings
The Sikla Sockets are the fittings used to connect two beam sections to one another or one beam section to the building structure. Many variations of the socket are available to construct nearly any three dimensional frame. Check out the Sikla Catalog to see the full complement of Socket fittings available.
Cantilever Beam Sections
The Sikla Cantilever Sections are ready to use mounting elements in the Sikla Framo product line. The cantilever arms are essentially beam sections welded to various end plates. This reduces costs of the overall assembly and installation times. There is a wide range of cantilever sections available and they can be found here: Sikla Product Catalog
Other Sikla Components
Sikla is continuously adding new products to the Sikla Framo 80 product group. New components are constantly being added to the catalog to ensure Sikla can be used in any configuration. Some additional common components are:
