Modular construction method is gaining popularity in the construction industry due to its efficiency in terms of cost and speed of erection. The terms Modular refers to structure which comprise of individual sections, called “modules”. Each modules which are pre-fabricated in a controlled manufacturing plant has its own standard size and dimension.
DXS Modular Structures utilises light weight aluminium trusses which has three times lesser density than steel, plus excellence corrosion resistance. Applying modular technique in construction helps to increase speed of construction Whilst site preparation and foundation are being prepared, structural frames and columns can be manufactured in a factory before delivery to site.
DXS components are assembled together to form a complete structure. A complete building consists of columns, main frames, starter frames, spigots and apex frames. The main frames are the back bones of the roof truss system and are connected together using spigots and bolts to form a large span roof. The truss module can be assembled on the ground level complete with roof purlins. This reduces risks of working at height and eventually shorten the duration of assembling purlins which normally would be assemble at roof height.
