Unique Wide Span Building Systems

The company’s wide span building technology centres on a range of unique metal profiles invented by Spantech:

  • Wide span curved roofing profiles
  • Long span straight roofing profiles
  • Composite formwork systems
  • and coming soon – light weight structural beams.

Wide Span Curved Roofing Systems

Spantech Construction System features two unique metal profiles: the Woomera 300 and the Pinkenba 370 profiles.

Both are used to create wide span curved roofing without using trusses or internal columns. The panel can span self-supported up to 40m wide. The result is a dynamic frameless wide-span building.

Ground-to-Ground arched buildings (Nissen Hut style buildings) are also constructed with the same curved panels.

The system also includes a complimentary straight panel.  The straight panel can construct skillion roofs and walls.

Spantech panels are manufactured on site.  This minimises transport and handling, but it also makes construction fast and very efficient.

The New Benchmark in Long-Span Roofing

Recently added to the product line-up, Spantech’s new innovative skillion roofing and wall cladding system is the Spantech Longreach 650 and Spantech Longreach 800 profiles.    These distinctive deep profiles give architecturally designed building with a bold modern roof line and unique architectural appeal.

The profiles can span between 12 and 20 metres, subject to the application, and provide unsupported cantilevered eaves up to 5 metres wide.

Composite Metal Formwork

Spantech Formwork 300Spantech has just released the Formwork 300 system, a composite metal formwork system. The system is a fast, cost-effective way to build his rise residential apartments, commercial office buildings and multi-level car parks.
