Light Gauge Stud Framing is the design of choice for non-combustible structures between three and seven stories. By combining engineer’s design of choice with the modular benefit of Wally’s Walls’ UltraFrame Panels, these structures can be built in half the time and provide twice the insulation value. Our walls have been tested to meet e119 testing for a 2 hr. fully loaded wall.
Wally’s Crown ICF is the easy, fast, and insulated way to frame foundation walls, first floor podiums and elevator shafts and stairwells. Wally’s Installation Team will install the ICF’s, eliminating the need for additionally trades. Unlike hollow masonry blocks, Wally’s Crown ICF’s are insulated, providing tremendous R-Value and sound attenuation. Wally’s Crown ICF’s can also be used on first floors where additional height is needed or where the additional size and gauge of the studs make ICF a more cost effective choice.
Engineering is the the key ingredient to the success of any project, whether designed with wood, light gauge steel, ICF, red iron, or concrete. In today’s design/build environment, engineers of record (“EOR”) typically rely on specialty engineers to provide the design for the desired system based upon the EOR’s design criterion. At Wally Walls, our engineers work with your team’s EOR to design the most cost effective, constructable building envelope. Utilizing Wally Walls’ UltraFrame Panels, Wally’s Crown ICF walls, and the architect/EOR’s specified decking system, Wally’s engineers provide stamped structural drawings for the very best insulated, constructable, or non-combustible, structures attainable. Further, our engineer’s structural shops are utilized in slab-to-slab construction. Wally’s UltraFrame Panels are regularly integrated with Type V combustible designs together with wood decking components, providing a lighter weight, better built, Typ V building.
Wally Walls UltraFrame Panels go together like a Lego set, handset by Wally’s Installation Team trained to assemble your building. Because the system is so simple, if you already have a pre-selected crew, Wally can work them to assemble the structure. Wally’s Team also handles the Crown ICF installation and decking install. Wally will have you under roof and working inside quickly and without excessive general conditions necessitated with other construction methodologies.
Completing The Envelope
Completing the envelope quickly and efficiently, without drama, and turning the building over to your mechanical trades and framing contractors is our goal. That process starts with our engineering team, moves on to our manufacturing framing crew, and ends with our crew on site, leaving you time to focus on coordinating the mechanical trades, framing carpenters and finishing crews. One contract and Wally does the rest. Simplicity is Better!
