Simplifying site installation for contractors, Kingspan Steel Building Solutions has introduced colour coding to its steel framing systems. The coding will reduce time on site and the potential for errors, making costly remediation work less likely.
All studs and tracks are now colour-coded according to their gauge, with the colours matching those used in Kingspan’s design drawings. For example, when Kingspan Infinity software or the company’s engineers determine that a stud or track needs to be supplied in 2mm gauge steel, the design drawings will confirm the stud or track gauge in red ink. A lintel in 1.8mm gauge will be shown in blue ink.
In turn the stud or track supplied to site will be inkjet marked with the same colour, enabling it to be quickly identified and installed in the correct location.
This new system makes it easier to understand openings, parapets and other complex detailing, and easy to locate and install different sections when working with design drawings.
