Our designs are derived from the simple forms of nature, applied in a big magnitude and size.
They are available with different behaviors ( in addition to conventional truss, beam and portal frames) such as:

  • Membrane Behavior
  • Plate Behavior
  • Shell Behavior
  • Folded Plate Behavior
THREE BASIC CONFIGURATIONS

 

  1. DOUBLE LAYER GRIDS
    a. S.O.S. (SQUARE ON SQUARE)
    b. S.O.R. (SQUARE ON RECTANGLE)
    c. S.O.L.S. (SQUARE ON LARGE SQUARE)
  2. BRACED BARREL VAULTS
  3. BRACED DOMES

ADVANTAGES

FORMEXX Space Frames are advantageous (compared to the conventional systems) in the following aspects

  • Require fewer number of column supports
  • Unlimited freedom to the architects for locating the supports and sub-dividing the enclosed space.
  • They are extra wind resistant
  • Lighter and structurally efficient
  • Use minimum materials to maximum structural advantage
  • Inherently very stiff
  • Deflections are very very small even when the spans are very large
  • Services such as air-conditioning, electrification etc can be provided through the space frame network itself with no additional structures to support them.
  • Pleasing in appearance.
  • Versatility and flexibility in design, form and appearance
  • Lesser cost for large span areas
  • Self weight per unit area is less, with no compromise for rigidity
  • High rigidity & stiffness for a given span or depth ratio
  • Elements are demountable and reusable
