Up until now, large portal buildings required heavy steel beams which were slow, expensive and time consuming to manufacture and install. Times have changed.
X-CALIBR™ ushers in a new era of steel portal construction with strong roll-formed sections that can frame an entire building faster and more cost effectively than ever before.
The X-CALIBR™ system creates a roll-formed, exceptionally strong structure that is completely pre-fabricated without the need for drilling, cutting, welding or measuring.
The machine-fabricated structural sections can be configured to create rafters, wind posts, columns, beams, purlins or girts to frame an entire mid to large-span project, such as a distribution centre or warehouse. Larger spans can be achieved by increasing the section depth, and width, to cater for the structural demands.
X-CALIBR™ sections are from locally sourced G450 Z450 galvanised steel with a nominal 1.95mm material thickness and connected with specifically developed, patented, large hollow tube rivet technology.
The fully automated, precision roll-forming process for X-CALIBR™ slashes material costs, processing and handling in the factory whilst dramatically cutting assembly time onsite. The roll-formed sections require significantly less raw material but are equal in strength to structural steel with the advantage of lower base material costs.
Using X-CALIBR™ reduces labour costs by eliminating human error and boosting quality and accuracy. Faster processing times mean more projects can be delivered in a shorter time frame, creating a significant reduction in overheads which can be passed on to the customer.
X-CALIBR™ is made in New Zealand from high quality NZ steel. Simply order what you need for your project with the confidence of knowing your X-CALIBR™ sections will be delivered when you need them without extra cost, waste, or international shipping and storage fees. Most projects will follow this standard ordering process:
