    FAQ


    AFS stands for 'Architectural Framing Systems' which was the line of business that AFS commenced in. AFS have now concentrated their focus on the AFS LOGICWALL, a prefabricated permanent formwork wall system. Please let us know if we can help out with any project enquiries you may have. Thank you. Phone: 1300 727 237 Email: sales@afswall.com.au

    It consists of fibre cement sheets bonded either side of a galvanised steel stud frame, which is shop drawn and manufactured to suit each project.

    The panels are delivered to site flat packed and craned or forked onto the floor slab. They are then hand erected and braced with purpose built adjustable braces. Horizontal and vertical reinforcement is then placed in the walls . Electrical conduits are then installed before core filling the walls with concrete.

    INTERNAL WALLS: Walls can be finished internally using one of the following methods: • Flush setting the panel joints and painting the walls. • Skim coating the walls • Over sheeting with plasterboard EXTERNAL WALLS: The external walls are finished by applying a fibreglass mesh tape and external joint setting compound to flush set the panel joints followed by the application of a 3-5mm trowelled on acrylic render system. Refer to the AFS Designer for further details.

    Acoustic performance varies according to wall size, however AFS 162 mm wall is typically suitable as a stand-alone wall for party walls, corridor walls etc. and achieves an RW of 54 and Dnt, W + Ctr of 50.

    AFS 120 (120mm - thinnest of the AFS wall range) has a fire rating of 240/240/180 which is confirmed by a CSIRO FRL test. The AFS 162 achieves a fire rating of 240/240/240.

    Typically AFS is suitable for anywhere between 2 & 30 storeys. The most common usage is 4 -12 storeys.

    1. Cranage and delivery costs are significantly reduced. For example; you can fit up to 350m2 of AFS LOGICWALL on 1 semi-trailer compared to 35 m2 of pre-cast. Only 2 hours cranage required for unloading 350m2 of AFS LOGICWALL. 2. AFS is not crane dependent like pre-cast 3. AFS provides a conventionally & continuously reinforced monolithic structure. 4. Services can be installed inside the walls before concrete core filling.

    1. Speed of construction – a 3 man team can install 100m2 of AFS LOGIC WALL in a day, as opposed to block work being 25m2/day= 4 x the amount. 2. 80% less waste 3. 80% less materials handling including cranage and logistics 4. 80% less labour 5. Much cleaner work site 6. AFS is load-bearing for up to 30 storeys.

    Price varies according to project location, access, size and complexity. We would prefer to submit to you a price based on project plans. If you sent project plans to plans@afswall.com.au AFS will provide you with a design concept and price quotation.
