Superlight Steel Frame

EASY, LIGHTWEIGHT, FUNCTIONAL AND DURABLE

The shell is manufactured according to the regulations for prefabricated steel frame modular solutions and is not a load-bearing element. The SUPERLIGHT galvanized steel frame pod utilizes mechanical assembly points eliminating the need for welding. Introduced in 2006,  the Superlight represents the latest addition to Bathsystem’s product range satisfying the need for even lighter weight loads, particularly in the case of high-rise developments. The structure consists of lightweight galvanized steel cross sections and 60mm upright support columns. Internally cladded with 15mm thick Fermacell concrete composite panels, the external walls are ready to receive Rockwool insulation and a plasterboard counter wall. Holes for services, door and window openings are in accordance with the project design requirements.

The floor base is available in two different structural solutions:

  • 1600 kg/m3 lightweight concrete placed on 12mm (6mm + 6mm) rubber pads directly on building floor slab
  • 12mm thick panel placed on foam mat directly on building floor slab

Any direct contact between the pod unit underside and building structure or construction site surface is strictly forbidden.

As follows:

Wall thickness 75 mm
Ceiling thickness 65 mm
Concrete floor thickness minimum 50 mm
“SLIM” floor thickness minimum 12 mm
Density 1600 kg/m3
Fire rating F 60*
