Design of Unic Rotarex® lightweight steel structures
The principle is effort distribution, many elements (profiles), each taking over part of the effort. Let’s not forget that the element’s own weight is also an effort which must be taken over. If we have a concrete beam, a large part of the load bearing is needed to take over its own weight. What is left can be used for the building’s specific load bearing.
The engineers learned in school and in practice to use the concrete and laminated elements. The lack of experience in this domain takes to huge material consumption (meaning increased price), in projects drawn by new engineers in this area. The ones who try to copy existent designs are endangering the safety of the building because they do not understand what they just designed.
The advantages of Unic Rotarex® know-how – over 10 years of experience:
- we design the most variate products, from small containers to 5 floors residential buildings or small and medium industrial buildings.
- we revolutionized the steel consumption per square meter of building. Unic Rotarex® industrial buildings are long known as they have reduced steel consumption from 45 to 25 kilograms per square meter for a free span up to 15m and height up to 6m.
- we gathered lots of experience in developing modular buildings and innovated the simplest walls jointure.
- Unic Rotarex® learned to apply mixed solutions, we combine the steel structure with laminated and concrete elements.
- we also learned to instantly evaluate the metal consumption per square meter of construction, with a very small margin of error.
- we offer technical documentation with calculation notes and 2D and 3D detailing. The complexity of detailing simplifies the load bearing structures, even for beginners.
- we have a large team of designers and two universities with whom we draw projects and we test the structural elements and the new ideas.
- we export CNC files for production from the assembling plans, eliminating all errors. At first we see the 3D model of the structure and then we produce it.
- we also develop wall sections, floors, foundations and roofs for all climate areas.
- we adapt the building methods to the materials request of each area.
How to become Unic Rotarex® Design Partner?
Given that our know-how required 10 years of work, please understand that we will not share it easily. You can visit us in order to see what we do and how we do it. We will meet each other and establish if we can work together or not.
If we sign a partnership agreement you will receive the right to access our know-how and we will send you customers for who you can draw technical documentation.
How to buy the technical documentation
We deliver the technical documentation only to the ones who buy Unic Rotarex® structures.
Make an inquiry and, according to the complexity and location of your project, we will decide who is the most appropriate engineer for you to work with.
