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.

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.

Erection / installation (optional) of space frames are carried out by a network of Qualified and Certified Builders working hand-in-hand with
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 scaffolds.

·          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.
