EXPERT TECHNICAL DESIGN SUPPORT
As a Rondo customer, you have access to the very best technical advice from our own technical sales and professional engineers, who offer a comprehensive design service to assist from beginning concepts all the way through to the building completion.
This complementary in-house design service can be utilised for all projects where Rondo products are specified. This offer extends to all our systems and products for any application, where we deem it suitable.
Our team of Professional Engineers are not only experienced in cold formed steel design, but are also well trained in the use and application of Australian and International Standards as they apply to the Rondo systems and components. Rondo designs to the current Australian Standards with all loading codes (AS/NZS 1170 series, including AS 1170.4), design codes (AS/NZS4600) and more recently SA TS 101 for post-installed concrete fasteners.
Online subscription to Standards Australia ensures we are up-to-date with all relevant Standards and regularly update our technical resources with any code changes. As a company, we also have regular interactions with fastener suppliers to ensure our designs are current and up to date. Design capacities for Rondo standard details are always confirmed with anchor suppliers, before detailing and documenting is complete.
Rondo also sits on a number of committees including the BD35 Standards Committee for the revision of AS/NZS2785 Suspended Ceiling code, the AWCI Executive Committee, which represents the Wall and Ceiling Industry within Australia and New Zealand and the AWCI Technical Committee which provides support to the Wall and Ceiling Industry within Australia and New Zealand for all technical matters relating to the industry.
Our team of professional engineers are all fully qualified with a minimum Bachelor's Degree in Engineering so you can be confident in the designs Rondo provides. That's the level of support you have come to expect from Rondo, and this ensures your project is designed right the first time.
We guarantee that our in-house Engineers have completed the appropriate Engineering qualifications to offer design advice.
Our Design Advice
We're dedicated to providing the best systems to our customers, providing solutions to achieve a vision in the most economical way possible. This is achieved through our professional engineering services and advice in the design of non-standard ceiling and wall framing systems where specific wind pressure or seismic design is to be accommodated for, as well as design assistance with difficult bulkhead construction or curved walls or ceilings. Similarly, assistance can be provided in situations where particular internal static pressures, lateral point loads, shelf loads, deflection or load bearing requirements must be catered for in walls and ceilings.
Such designs include but not limited to:
- Acoustic Wall and Ceiling Systems
- External Wall and Ceiling Systems
- Load Bearing Walls
- Non Load Bearing Walls
- Fire-rated Wall and Ceiling Systems
- Non Fire-rated Wall and Ceiling Systems
- Seismic Wall and Ceiling Solutions
