The Infinity Structural System
Infinity Structures is a structural framing system supplier specializing in the Epicore MSR Composite Floor System on pre-panelized load-bearing metal stud walls.
We can generally do 9 or 10 stories of Infinity System, which could start on the slab-on-grade or an elevated concrete Transfer Slab. Our height limitation is based on how many stories of Infinity System we have, so you could have 10 stories of Infinity System sitting on a 5th Floor Transfer Slab which would actually be a 15 Story building!
We developed The Infinity Structural System in 1986, and a review of our Installation Lists (available upon request) proves that we have by far the most extensive experience and expertise of anyone in the business. For over 30 years and hundreds of projects, we have “fine tuned” the Infinity System making constant improvements for a more economical, faster, trouble-free and user-friendly system. Our scope of work typically provides the complete structural framing package ready for your local concrete sub to place the wire mesh, rebar, and concrete. Infinity Structures provides Project Management and Engineering assistance, and has several highly trained and experienced erection crews. Depending upon the Client’s desired approach, our Engineering Involvement varies from providing Light Gage Engineering Design/calculations/shop drawings to full EOR Structural Engineering design from the foundations through the roof.
The Infinity Structural System consists of the Epicore MSR Composite Floor System on pre-panelized load-bearing metal stud walls. Epicore MSR is a 2” deep high performance long-span composite metal deck that acts as a permanent form as well as the positive reinforcing in the slab. The dovetail rib with embossed locking lugs, flat bottom profile, and closed flutes make it uniquely suited for load-bearing metal studs since it inherently distributes loads evenly over the metal studs (eliminating the need for expensive load-distribution members or attempting to align joists and studs). The Epicore MSR Floor System can clear span up to almost 30 feet. The field poured slab is between a 4” and 8” slab thickness utilizing 4,000 psi regular weight concrete (3,000 psi or lightweight may be used if desired).
The load-bearing metal stud wall panels are typically 6” galvanized studs spaced at 16” on center (other stud sizes & spacing are available if desired). The gage of the studs will be 18, 16, 14, or 12 Gage depending upon axial loads, wind loads and stud height. The metal studs are custom ordered for your particular project, therefore the metal studs may be cut to any length to achieve your desired floor-to-floor heights (i.e. there are no standard stud height constraints). Infinity’s wall panels are fabricated off-site in a controlled environment using welded connections under very stringent QC requirements to ensure the highest quality available.
The lateral loads (wind and seismic) may be handled utilizing our exclusive Infinity Shear Panel (ISP), or traditional methods such as concrete shear walls, reinforced CMU/masonry shear walls, structural steel braced frames, or a combination.
