Whatever your fabrication needs, 75mm, 90mm or 150mm, we have the workshop facilities to deliver your needs. We have an extensive capability to fabricate a very wide variety of structural, architectural and framing including:
- Fully-welded wall frames for regions A, C & D
- Fully-welded roof trusses for regions A, C & D
- Suspended floors
- Structural components for domestic, commercial and industrial buildings
- Transportables of all sizes
- Street furniture
Our workshop is well set out and we can quickly turn around your job to the highest standard and on time – come and talk to our tradies!
Our in-house drafting team will convert your architectural and engineering drawings into workshop drawings and can provide component schedules, 3D models, erection plans as well as assist in error checking and specification requirements.
KMPL hold a framing and truss standard certified by a practising engineer that is accepted by all Kimberley and Pilbara Shires and the Ministry of Housing.
Don’t get blown away in a cyclone: talk to your builder about why you’ll be safer in a KMPL Standard fully-welded steel-frame and roof-truss system.
We can also fabricate to your own standard and drawings – satisfaction guaranteed.
Compare apples with apples
Ensure you don’t buy an inferior product missing key components. What looks cheaper on paper can turn into a nightmare on-site with your sub-contractors running around trying to put it all together when half the pieces are missing – and you’re paying! Others may charge you extra for everything the KMPL Standard frame specification includes:
- Frames are 1.2mm to 1.6mm x 75mm stud depending on the region, with a 1.6mm stiffened top plate.
- 140mm Jumbo studs are provided at wall junctions to provide plasterboard fixing points and to make the frames easier to install.
- 45 degree and 22.5 degree ends are provided for flush and tidy joining where walls are at 45 degrees.
- RHS/SHS beams and posts are provided in the frames as per engineering.
- Beam pockets will be added to frames for beams shown on the engineering.
- Bath trim 450mm above FFL is cut and welded in to the frame where baths are shown.
- Noggins to restrain frames or provide fixings for various cladding types.
- Elastoseal treatment to base of frames (Coal tar epoxy).
- Cast-in-plates and cast-in-stumps are provided as per engineering, we also provide a slab layout plan when you need it.
- Blue-tip, dyna-bolts and chemical anchors for structural bolt-down.
- All frame-to-frame fixings.
- Robe-heads where shown on the drawings.
