QuickFrames No-Welding, Adjustable Roof Frame Solution
QuickFrames No-Welding, Adjustable Roof Frame Solution
Soyko Industries’ QuickFrames is a patented roof frame that eliminates the problems and dangers associated with traditional welded-in frames. Roof frames act as a structural support for roof openings in commercial buildings and are made to bear the weight of HVAC units, evaporative coolers, roof turbines, skylights, roof drains, and other roof top mounted equipment. Since traditional frames are not adjustable, longer lead times are needed for ordering and detailing, and expensive rework and project delays are common.

Thermafiber has released a light fixture protection kit for the commercial building market. FixtureShield kits are made from rigid Thermafiber mineral wool boards. The new, patented light-weight design reduces installation time, offers energy-saving R-value and improved sound control. FixtureShield is UL approved and listed in several fire-rated floor/ceiling and roof/ceiling assemblies. Fire protection is a critical element for ceilings in both the 2009 and 2012 versions of the IBC code. Any penetration of a fire-rated ceiling must be protected so that the entire ceiling assembly will not be compromised.
