- DESIGN & ENGINEERING:
Rafid Steel Industries (RSI)
addresses all the needs to meet the architectural and structural
requirements of every project and are equipped with the most
sophisticated engineering tools and modern computer software program
internally developed to perform the structural analysis for space
frame structures that satisfy American code requirements such
as AISC, ANSI / ASCE, UBC, among others.
Preparation of schematic layouts, presentation, drawing, conceptual design
criteria of feasible
alternatives and present the findings and
recommendations including estimated costs, timing and phases of the
project to the client for approval.
3D multimedia is also used for visualization.
Rafid Space Frames are manufactured in accordance with the latest editions of
the American (ASTM), British (BS) and German (DIN) standards. Once
fabrication details are available and issued from Engineering Dept.
to the Factory, fabrication of structural members, nodes, its
components and other related accessories for a complete installation
of the system are undertaken.
Members and purlins can either be in black steel or galvanized
(depending upon the project requirement). The rest of the space
frame components are either electro-galvanized or hot-dipped
galvanized as minimum standard of RSI.
It is then subjected to chemical pre-treatment process prior to the
application of polyester powder coating except for the space frame
nodes, supports, columns (optional), which are polyurethane wet
spray painted. All parts are marked for easy identification during
installation. Only Q.A. passed materials are processed and the
finished products are suitably packed prior to delivery.
and upon the client’s request, a complete and detailed Quality

ERECTION / INSTALLATION:
Erection / installation (optional) of space frames are carried out
by a network of Qualified and Certified Builders working
RSI to ensure satisfactory completion of works. Erection is
generally categorized into three methods or combination thereof
depending upon the actual site conditions namely:
In-siteyu assembly from either full height mobile or fixed
Full assembly on ground and lift into position using
appropriate sized crane.
Partial assembly on ground, lift into position by crane and
complete assembly by mobile scaffolds.
The completed space
frame will undergo full and comprehensive final inspection before
hand-over to clients.
