SAS International has unveiled its new comprehensive range of galvanised cold rolled steel products.

The SAS EMAC Cold Rolled series of products has been developed to meet the project requirements for all dry lining applications and are manufactured in theUK.

With the successful launch of the innovative EMAC Hanger last year, the SAS Cold Rolled series now provides an extensive package for the fit-out contractor. It includes:

  • EMAC Stud & Track – double-rebated and manufactured to high tolerances for extra rigidity;
  • EMAC Wall Liner System – with anti-slip marks for ease of fixing and folded edges for safer handling and added strength;
  • EMAC Metal Furring System – supports plasterboard ceilings with elements of connectors, and channels all easily assembled with connecting clips; along with
  • EMAC Hanger – Pre-punched for mechanical fixing to structural soffits for ease of use (removes the need to snip, punch, fold or apply angle cleats) and pre-formed in various lengths – no cutting required on site.

Drawing on its 40 years of expertise in manufacturing high quality products, SAS International has designed a product portfolio that can save time and improve accuracy on installation, whilst offering best value for money. These products also integrate easily with SAS International’s full range of fit-out solutions including ceiling and partitioning systems.

In addition, as the product series is available direct from the manufacturer it allows for competitive prices to be passed directly to the contractor.

Contractors can also be safe in the knowledge that as a manufacturer SAS International provides guarantees for all of their metal ceiling products as long as they are installed in accordance with the AIS Best Practice Guide: Installation of Suspended Ceilings.

The EMAC Cold Rolled series has been tested in a range of build and board configurations, including tests using the three leading manufacturers’ boards. Furthermore, the EMAC Stud & Track can provide up to 66 dB acoustic performance, 120 minutes fire performance and severe structural performance, when used in conjunction with the leading manufacturers’ boards.

Malcolm Stamper, Marketing Manager at SAS International, commented: “SAS International looks at ways to deliver project teams with the highest quality solutions for long-term value, and as a leading British manufacturer we also work on continuous product development. The EMAC series of products is an important new addition to our product portfolio as we look to further develop our value-driven, one-stop solution to meet the needs of contractors and where the contractor can always be assured of the highest quality along with all the expected product features.”
