VORTEX HIGH-PERFORMANCE FRAMING SYSTEM
The most important evolution in internal framing construction in 50 years
Skyscrapers often creak and groan in the wind. Loudly!
It keeps apartment residents awake at night and it terrifies unsuspecting hotel quests. Creaking noises have been recorded at more than 70dB and sometimes the noise pattern goes on for hours. It happens in old buildings and in brand new buildings, but there is virtually no data or research material available on why it occurs.
Studco Australia has conducted world-first research into creaking buildings and has developed breakthrough innovation designed to eliminate tension creaking in internal framing systems for walls and ceilings. Initial trial installations in 2017 in two different 70 storey apartment towers has conclusively proven the performance of the new Vortex High-Performance Framing System from Studco. Apartment residents love Vortex.
As we continue to builder higher than ever before, builders and developers continue to spend millions of dollars attempting to rid defective buildings of creaks and groans, for the improved comfort of the occupants. Yet without research or a proven solution, the defects continue to occur and the costs continue to mount. Studco Vortex now offers the global skyscraper construction market a genuine solution with validated results.
