The Steel Stud Drywall ceiling system is ideal for smaller areas where it is difficult to install a suspended ceiling, such as; corridors, bathrooms and open roof areas.
Rondo steel wall framing systems provide a durable, practical and lightweight structures for internal plasterboard walls to create attractive spaces within buildings, or external wall systems to provide direct support of the exterior cladding and interior linings.
When it comes to wall partitions that are perfect for a multiple-tenancy building, Rondo's range of solutions has everything you might need. The acoustic barrier wall systems are great for keeping noise levels between apartments to a minimum and our steel frames also offer solid support points for heavy additions such as television sets, hand rails and even windows or doors.
Rondo Wall Studs are also fire rated. They have been tested by the leading plasterboard manufacturers and incorporated in their fire rated systems design, so when your installation comes to the compliance stage, you can rest assured that it will be up to scratch.
Rondo 0.50bmt, 0.55bmt and 0.75bmt Wall Studs can be boxed and Rondo 1.15bmt can be fixed back to back to provide greater rigidity at window and door openings. Alternatively, our more recently released MAXIjamb® can be used which has greater capacity than regular wall studs so it removes the necessity for multiple boxed stud configurations. Equalling faster, more efficient construction.
What gives Rondo steel walls the advantage?
In 2009, we became the first Australian manufacturer to add a hem to our wall studs for safer handling and a stiffer, stronger profile. The hemmed return lip to the flange of our wall studs increases its stiffness, which in turn prevents unwanted rotation and it's also great for installations because it isn't sharp and so won't result in cuts and scratches when handled.
To this day, no other steel stud profile on the market is hemmed like ours and it's just one example of our how we have remained at the forefront of the industry.
Another example would be our innovative MAXIframe® External Wall Framing System. It provides a solid structure to support a variety of exterior facades, such as brick veneer, AAC panels, lightweight cladding or panel systems, as well as supporting the internal plasterboard linings. This means one contractor can be used to frame both external and internal walls, resulting in overall project efficiencies.

From a ceiling system with the grid either concealed or exposed, directly-fixed to the structure above or suspended, through to trafficable ceilings, Rondo has everything you might need. When you can't stand seeing unsightly services or when you need to reduce sound transmitted through the floor, the expertly engineered ceiling designs from Rondo will perform well.
Rondo ceiling system products can be used for a large range of installations to make acoustics better, conceal services such as fire sprinklers, air conditioning ducts and electric cabling, and to create a more aesthetically pleasing building. To get the best possible finish, it doesn't have to just be functional, it must also look great.
A ceiling can be installed by directly fixing it to the structure above, using Furring Channels or Ceiling Battens, or by suspending it. If a suspension depth of more than 200mm is required, Rondo recommends a fully suspended ceiling.
Rondo's ceiling systems are designed and manufactured to comply with all relevant Australian standards and codes, and our technical teams are experienced in their fields and know what product would suit each application the best.
