Open Panel

The Open panel system is an industry standard frame. Open-panel framing is quick and flexible compared with on-site construction. Using this system for your project will ensure the main structure is constructed efficiently, leaving you able to complete both internally and externally simultaneously. External finishes can be applied instantly once the frame and roof are erected. Internal finishes including plumbing, electrical and dry lining can also commence once your frame is water tight.
