EOS helping housebuilders reduce risk and operate with more certainty

Architects and housebuilders are under increased pressure to develop safer residential buildings on fast-track construction schedules whilst still achieving outstanding building performance.

Construction can be a complex business but as we evolve more advanced offsite technologies, EOS can help housebuilders reduce risk and operate with more certainty and confidence.

Through the collaborative expertise of Etex brands EOS Framing, Siniat, Promat and FSi, our light steel frame systems approach is helping construction clients to comply and compete in challenging markets.

Rigorous testing regimes

At the heart of this is rigorous testing, technically competent people and a systems approach to our solutions.

Our full-scale testing regimes study the performance of products working together to see how they interact in ‘real’ circumstances, such as under fire conditions or when exposed to wind and rain.

A fragmented supply chain will result in components being offered by a multitude of manufacturers, therefore warranties are complex, for very limited timescales or simply non-existent. This uncertainty also extends to the costs involved, the speed of build and the quality of the final outcome.

In response to these challenges, EOS has developed an award-winning range of steel frame systems fire tested to 60-120 minutes in both directions.
