All GreyFrame systems and components are selected to deliver solutions that are durable with significantly longer life spans, lower maintenance requirements and are flexible and adaptable. GreyFrame has developed its range of complimentary MMC systems and components to be dynamic and suitable for:
- Residential Housing
- Residential Apartments
- Retirement & Care Homes
- Student Accommodation
- Sports Halls & Churches
- Boundary walls
GreyFrame systems have been developed to work in combination with other MMC solutions from single components to complex integrated systems.
Single components range from passive slabs, to permanent formwork party walls.
Multi component solutions combine permanent formwork lift cores and walls, precast stairs and floors to create open span structural shells ready for timber partitioning.
We offer a range of compatible solutions to work effectively with:
- Timber & Steel frame
Taking a fabric first approach to design and installation, creating a structural shell with low U-values, reliable airtightness and no thermal bridging is our priority.
Permanent Formwork systems have several advantages in achieving airtightness. The ready core creates and monolithic shell, a continuous structure with no gaps, no taping up of joins in panels etc. As the materials are structural robust there is not issue with building envelope being punctured during construction or with follow on trades.
High levels of Thermal performance are achieved through ICF external walls and a passive foundation system. Wall U-Values can be specified from 0.20 to as low as 0.10 W/m2K, suitable for Passive House Standards. Foundations are designed as standard to reach a U-value of 0.10 W/m2K.
The GreyFrame systems have been developed to meet and surpass building regulations, now and in the future. This gives you the confidence that introducing our systems into your build process has a long-term benefit, and consistency; with specification, easily adaptable to meet your statutory requirements or passive house standard with little change to process and details.
Through the density and controlled exposure of concrete components, the thermal variances within a building can be minimised as the materials work as a heat store; slowly absorbing warmth as it heats up and releasing heat back out as the day cools.
