V and F Sheet Metal, supporting the Olympics – well sort of!
Air ducting supported by sheet metal fabricated straps
We manufacture a number of galvanised steel formed straps to help support air-conditioning ducting in buildings. The galavanised steel straps are CNC punched out of 2mx1m and 2.5m x 1.25m sheet metal, CNC bent and then formed around curved former jigs. Some of the smaller units have bends that are formed up on our Trumpf 3000 CNC punch press using multi-bend tooling. The sizes of strap range from under 100mm in diameter to over 1250mm and in gauges from 1.2mm thick to 3mm thick material. The galavanised steel straps are semi-circular in form and used in pairs to trap the galvanised ducting and suspended from the ceiling on steel drop rods or threaded studding. The picture here shows a partial installation for one of the new building for the Olympics media centre. Only a small sheet metal component but we are proud to have been involved with the 2012 Olympics project.
We have a range of other brackets and profile sections that we manufacture for the building trade such as wall cladding, roof brackets and ceiling adaptor plates and would be happy to talk with you if you have similar projects that you might require in sheet metal.
