Prefabricated steel framed buildingsUniframe GroupThe Uniframe Group consists of Unison, Blue Star Steel and Magboard Corporation.From various manufacturing facilities supervised by Uniframe, we can provide low cost, prefabricated,fast-track multi-story solutions that can be built in days and weeks instead of months.The Uniframe Group has been formed to supply a unique engineered building system that is specificallydesigned for each client’s project and provides the client with:• Prefabricated load bearing wall units• Prefabricated floor systems using floor trusses• Prefabricated roof systems• Fire proof magnesium oxide wall board for walls, floors and roof• Designed for seismic and wind loads.All delivered to the project site ready for installation.Uniframe provides turnkey design and installation drawings for all components of the building.Unison’s steel frames buildings have two methods of delivery and installation: Volumetric modular(prefinished) units; and prefabricated (kit set) units. The type used is determined by the clientsrequirements and in country conditions.

Our systems are designed to be built with minimal skilled labour and easy to follow installation drawings demonstrating the correct method for connection/erection methods.

MagWall Structural Insulated Panels• Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) have been used worldwide since the 1950’s: − Lower lifetime and energy costs − High speed of site construction − Lower total installation cost.• Compared to tradition SIP systems, MagWall has: − A lower finished cost − No need fire, water, mold protection (inherent fire rating) − No need to drywall the interior − Ability to directly apply external and internal finishes. SIP panel home after Hurricane Katrina on the Mississippi coast, USA
Key advantagesSIP building system using MagWall: MagBoard sheathing:• Fast simplified construction • Non-combustible• Very well insulated - lower energy consumption costs • Water resistant• Durable and structurally superior • Mould resistant• Excellent fire performance • Bug resistant• Full range of ASTM testing • Impact resistant• Green building technology • Inert - no off-gassing• Low cost. • Silicate free • Green building material • Hyper allergenic hospital grade material • Very strong • Easy to build with • Significant structural and assembly testing.
Energy efficient and environmentally friendly• Our housing designs create an insulated “thermal block” − So, minimal cooling (or heating) are required to maintain a desired temperature − Substantial reduction in energy consumption costs from heating and cooling• Wall and ceiling panels are extremely well insulated − True R 19 insulation coefficient − Fewer thermal bridges − Less air infiltration − Better interior environment• Entire homes can be 9 star green energy rated buildings which are world leading in energy efficiency• Highly durable with a very long product life − Structurally very strong − Resists hurricanes, earthquakes, floods − Impact resistant − Straight, plumb, air-tight walls − No rot or mould in panels − Longer lasting houses − Lower life time costs due to lower maintenance• Magboard has a low carbon footprint − Less materials − Dramatically reduced construction waste
Cost competitive and affordable housing• Many design options: − Single storey to medium rise residential − Commercial and industrial buildings − Full flexibility in interior layout − World class energy performance .• Installed cost very competitive in volume projects: − Cost equivalence to any local manufacture − [Note: This system is cost competitive in China against the local market!] − Competitive materials costs.• Manufacturing plants can be set up quickly and cheaply anywhere in the world for the production of the light gauge steel, MagBoard and MagWall: − High speed of manufacture / High volume output − Scalable production − Low capital costs for setup − Adds to local economy.• Faster construction cycle: − Minimal labour skills needed / Lower labour costs − Direct application of paints finishes − Rapid construction cycle − Consistent quality − Lower finishing costs with better results − Less construction waste.
Energy efficient optionsFeatures and options include:• Architectural design for optimum site orientation• Lifecycle design optimisation• Use of industry recognised modelling, such as House Energy Rating Software (HERS)• Highly insulated walls and ceilings• Colour and material selection to reduce (or increase) energy absorption• Split-web thermal stud technology cuts cold bridging of the steel framing• Automatically fire rated walls• Double glazed windows• Solar power and solar water heating• Instantaneous gas hot water system• High ceilings with passive ventilation• Low wattage LED lighting• Water efficient devices (shower heads, toilet cisterns)• Rain and grey water collection and reuse• CFC free insulation• Indoor environment quality assessments• Use of renewable (low carbon) materials• Generation of excess electricity for sale• Minimised waste and inventory during manufacturing• Minimised site waste because components supplied pre-finished• Manufacturing plants on site for minimised fuel usage… and many more.
Example energy efficient 2 bedroom house• 9 star energy rating• Wall insulation R3.6 (9 star energy rating)• Passive design• Acoustically efficient• Built to lock up on site in 1 day• Double glazed windows to stop thermal bridging
MagBoard (MgO) technical detailsMagnesium Oxide Board (MgO Board) is a versatile material commonly used throughout Asia forresidential and commercial construction. It is a structurally rated sheathing material that looks likedrywall, although a great deal harder, and is installed much like OSB, drywall or cement board with nospecial requirements. It can be used for exterior and interior wall sheathing, roof and floor decking andwet walls and readily accepts direct application of traditional finishing materials such as paint, stucco ordrywall texture. As a silicate free material, Magboard has numerous physical properties very importantto builders and their customers.Magboard has significantly improved the structural strength of common MgO board to create aproduct that can be used as a structural sheathing like Plywood or OSB.Rated as a non combustible material (ASTM E 136) with zero flame spread and zero smokegeneration (ASTM E 84) in various assemblies with up to a 2 hour fire rating.No rot, no mould, no termites, non-combustible: Hard to achieve with common materials andpractices.A hospital grade material approved as underlayment and tile backer board.It has undergone almost three years of rigorous testing that certifies its structural and physicalproperties (to ASTM standards by the world leading testing services such as Intertek NTA, Inc. andThe National Tile Council).Builders can eliminate many sub-assemblies designed to protect OSB or other sheathing materials.The use of one product to replace many saves time, lowers cost and helps the environment.Magnesium Oxide is among the most abundant minerals on the planet. Magboard is completelyrecyclable and there are no special requirements for waste disposal.Because it is cured at room temperatures during manufacturing, its carbon footprint is lower thancement board or drywall.The life cycle performance of Magboard, the reduction in construction materials, and leaving forestsintact make Magboard good for the builder, good for the customer and good for the environment.
